Jerubbesheth [EBD]

contender with the shame; i.e., idol, a surname also of Gideon (2 Sam. 11:21).


(contender with the shame), a name of Gideon. (2 Samuel 11:21)


JERUBBESHETH - jer-ub-be'-sheth, je-rub'-e-sheth (yerubbesheth, see JERUBBAAL, for meaning): It is found once (2 Sam 11:21) for JERUBBAAL.

The word bosheth, "shameful thing," was substituted by later editors of the text for ba`al, "lord," in the text of Jer 3:24; Hos 9:10; in 2 Sam 2:8, etc., we find Ish-bosheth = Eshbaal (Ishbaal) in 1 Ch 8:33; 9:39. The reason for this was reluctant to pronounce the word Ba`al, which had by their time been associated with Canaanitic forms of worship. In 2 Sam 11:21 Septuagint, Lucian, has "Jeroboal," which Septuagint, Codex Vaticanus, has corrupted to "Jeroboam." Compare MERIB-BAAL; MEPHIBOSHETH; and see Ginsburg, New Massoretico-Critical Text of the Hebrew Bible, Intro, 400 ff. For a New Testament case compare Rom 11:4 and see Sanday and Headlam at the place.
