The former owner of the hill on which Omri built Samaria, 1Ki 16:24.
Owner of the hill which Omri bought for two silver talents. On it Omri built Samaria (Shomeron, Hebrew), named from Shemer Shomer, the form in 1Ch 7:32, answers better to the name Shomeron than Shemer (1Ki 16:24).
1. The owner of the hill purchased by Omri (1Ki 16:24). 2. A Merarite (1Ch 6:31 (46)). 3. An Asherite (1Ch 7:34, called in 1Ch 7:32 Shomer). 4. A Benjamite (1Ch 8:12). The Heb. MSS show here some confusion between r and d as the final letter of the name. The AV (Shamed) and RV (Shemed) retain the reading of the Geneva version, which is based on the Vulgate Samad.
Owner of the hill bought by Omri, on which he built Samaria. 1Ki 16:24.
