1. Genesis 36:13; Genesis 36:17; 1 Chronicles 1:37.
        2. Jesse's third son, SHIMEA, SHIMEAH, SHIMMA (1 Samuel 16:9; 1 Samuel 16:13); present at David's anointing and at the battle with Goliath (1 Samuel 17:13). (See SHIMMA.)
        3. One of David's three mighties; son of Agee the Hararite. Single handed he withstood the Philistines in a field of lentils ("barley" according to 1 Chronicles 11:13-14; 1 Chronicles 11:27, where also by a copyist's error Shammah is omitted and the deed attributed to Eleazar), when the rest fled before them and Jehovah by him wrought a great victory (2 Samuel 23:11-12). 2 Samuel 23:4. (See SHAMHUTH.)
        5. 2 Samuel 23:32-33, instead of "Jonathan Shammah," should read "Jonathan son of Shage," or combining both as Kennicott suggests, "Jonathan son of Shamha" (1 Chronicles 11:34).
