je'-ush (ye`ush, probably "he protects," "he comes to help"; see HPN, 109; Kethibh is ye`ish, in Gen 36:5,14; 1 Ch 7:10):
(1) A "son" of Esau (Gen 36:5,14,18; 1 Ch 1:35). "The name is thought by some to be identical with that, of an Arabian lion-god Yagut ...., meaning `helper,' whose antiquity is vouched for by inscriptions of Thamud" (Skinner, Gen, 432).
(2) A Benjamite (1 Ch 7:10), but probably a Zebulunite. See Curtis, Chronicles, 145 ff.
(3) A descendant of King Saul, the King James Version "Jehush" (1 Ch 8:39).
(4) A Gershonite Levite (1 Ch 23:10,11).
(5) A son of King Rehoboam (2 Ch 11:19).
