|Jephunneh - |
1. Caleb's father. (See CALEB.) Of the Kenezites (Numbers 32:12), seemingly an Edomite tribe, Kenaz being a "duke of Edom" (Genesis 36:11; Genesis 36:15; Genesis 36:20; Genesis 36:23). Edomite names occur in Caleb's genealogy, as Shobal (1 Chronicles 2:50; 1 Chronicles 2:52). If the similarity of some names among Israel and Edom be not due to their being kindred peoples, it shows that Caleb's family was an Edomite one incorporated into Judah.
2. 1 Chronicles 7:38.
