Jairite [NAVE]

JAIRITE
2 Sam. 20:26

JAIRITE [SMITH]

(descendant of Jair). The IRA THE JAIRITE was a priest (Authorized Version "chief ruler") to David (2 Samuel 20:26)

JAIRITE [ISBE]

JAIRITE - ja'-er-it (ya'iri, "of Jair"): In 2 Sam 20:26, Ira the Jairite is "chief minister unto David." He was a descendant of Jair who was a Manassite (Nu 32:41, etc.) and whose territory was in Gilead. Septuagint, Lucian, and Syriac suggest yattiri, "Jattirite," i.e. a native of Jattir mentioned in 1 Sam 30:27 as one of the towns friendly to David when he was in Ziklag. It is not improbable that a native of Jattir would be given such a post by David.

See IRA, and compare 2 Sam 23:38.
