tumult. (1.) "The children of Sheth" (Nu 24:17); R.V., "the sons of tumult," which is probably the correct rendering, as there is no evidence that this is a proper name here.
(2.) The antediluvian patriarch (1Ch 1:1).
1. Seth in 1Ch 1:1.
2. Nu 24:17 translated "destroy all the children of tumult," i.e. Moab's fierce warriors (Ex 15:15; Isa 15:4; 16:6). Sheth is related to shaon in the parallel "tumultuous ones," Hebrew "children of tumult" (Jer 48:45); others make Sheth a Moabite king.
Son of Adam. 1Ch 1:1. See SETH. The word occurs also in Nu 24:17, where, instead of 'children of Sheth,' it is better to read 'sons of tumult;' that is, 'tumultuous war will be destroyed:' cf. Jer 48:45.
