Zimri (1)
Zimri (2)
Hebrew - Zimri

1. A prince of the tribe of Simeon, slain by Phinehas for his heaven- daring crime on the plains of Moab, Numbers 25:14.

2. A general of half the cavalry of Elah king of Israel. He rebelled against his master, killed him, and usurped his kingdom. He cut off the whole family, not sparing any of his relations or friends; whereby was fulfilled the word of the Lord denounced to Baasha the father of Elah, by the prophet Jehu. Zimri reigned but seven days; for the army of Israel, then besieging Gibbethon, a city of the Philistines, made their general, Omri, king, and came and besieged Zimri in the city of Tirzah. Zimri, seeing the city on the point of being taken, burned himself in the palace with all its riches, 1 Kings 16:1-20; 2 Kings 9:31.

3. Others of this name are mentioned in 1 Chronicles 2:6; 8:33-36.
