Tachmonite The

Tach’monite, The. “The Tachmonite that sat in the seat,” chief among David’s captains, 2 Sam. 23:8, is in 1 Chron. 11:11 called “Jashobeam an Hachmonite,” or, as the margin gives it, “son of Hachmoni.” Kennicott has shown that the words translated “he that sat in the seat” are a corruption of Jashobeam, and that “the Tachmonite” is a corruption of the “son of Hachmoni,” which was the family or local name of Jashobeam. Therefore he concludes “Jashobeam the Hachmonite” to have been the true reading.
