Hebrew - Jerahmeelite, Jerahmeelites

(jih rah' mee ehl ite) Member of clan of Jerahmeel which apparently lived south of Beersheba in the Negeb. While dwelling with the Philistines, David told them he was fighting in the territory of the Jerahmeelites (1 Samuel 27:10), making Achish, the Philistine king, think he was fighting against parts of Judah, while he actually fought the other groups in the south who opposed Judah—Geshurites, Gezrites, Amalekites (1 Samuel 27:8). He divided the spoils of war with the Jerahmeelites (1 Samuel 30:29).
