Who are the Shechemites?
        , the family of Shechem. Num 26:31. SHECHI'NAH (resting-place). This familiar word is found in the Targums and in Christian writings, although not in the Bible, but the fact it presents often is, for the shechinah was enveloped in the pillar of cloud and of fire, and was "the glory" which covered the tabernacle and filled Solomon's temple. In the N.T. there is reference to this "glory of the Lord" in Luke 2:9; Rom 9:4; John 1:14, etc.
