Sal’ma, or Sal’mon (garment), Ruth 4:20, 21; 1 Chron. 2:11, 51, 54; Matt. 1:4, 5; Luke 3:32, son of Nahshon, the prince of the children of Judah, and father of Boaz, the husband of Ruth. (b.c. 1296.) Bethlehem-ephratah, which was Salmon’s inheritance, was part of the territory of Caleb, the grandson of Ephratah; and this caused him to be reckoned among the sons of Caleb.
