("his pleasure in the spear".) The Ezmte, the Tachmonite; who slew with his spear 800 at once (2Sa 23:8). (See JASHOBEAM.) But Luther reads, to accord with 1Ch 11:11, arer for Adino; and, for ha ezni, eth hanitho, i.e., not a proper name but "Jashobeam swung his spear"; compare 1Ch 11:18. Gesenius reads ye'adno ha' ezno, "he shook it, even his spear."

The passage in Samuel reads in the margin "Joshebbassebet the Tachmonite, head of the three." It is difficult to reconcile the two passages. Some think that Jashobeam and Joshebbassebet are the same name
