Jerioth [NAVE]

JERIOTH
Wife of Caleb. Probably identical with Azubah, 1 Chr. 2:18.

JERIOTH [SMITH]

(curtains), one of the elder Caleb?s wives. (1 Chronicles 2:18)

JERIOTH [ISBE]

JERIOTH - jer'-i-oth, jer'-i-oth (yeri`oth, "(tent-) curtains"): In 1 Ch 2:18, where Massoretic Text is corrupt, Kittel in his commentary and in Biblical Hebrew reads "Caleb begat (children) of Azubah his wife, Jerioth." Wellhausen (De Gent. et Fam. Jud., 33) reads, "Caleb begat (children) of Azubah his wife, the daughter of Jerioth." According to English Versions of the Bible, Caleb had two wives, but the context does not bear this out. J. H. Michaelis regarded Jerioth as another name for Azubah. See Curtis, Commentary on Chronicles, 92.
