Hebrew - Eber, Heber
EBER

(ee' beer) Personal name meaning, “the opposite side.” 1. The ancestor of Abraham and the Hebrew people, and a descendant of Shem (Genesis 10:21-25; Genesis 11:14-17). Numbers 24:24 apparently refers to him as the original ancestor of a people associated with the Assyrians and threatened by Balaam with destruction by Kittim. Precisely who was meant at this point is not known.

2. A member of the tribe of Gad, called Heber by KJV (1 Chronicles 5:13). The name entered Israel's record about 750 B.C. (1 Chronicles 5:17). 3. Clan leader in tribe of Benjamin (1 Chronicles 8:12). 4. Another clan leader of Benjamin (1 Chronicles 8:22). 5. Head of priestly family of Amok (Nehemiah 12:20) in days of Jehoiakim (609-597 B.C.).
