Hebrew - Ashhur
ASHHUR

(assh' huhr) Modern translation spelling of Ashur (KJV, TEV). Personal name meaning, “to be black,” or “belonging to Ishara.” Son of Hazron, born after his father's death (1 Chronicles 2:24). He had two wives, each of whom bore him children (1 Chronicles 4:5-7). His title, “Father of Tekoa,” may indicate he founded the city later famous for native son Amos, the prophet. See Tekoa. Some Bible students understand Caleb to be Ashhur's father in 1 Chronicles 2:24 (TEV, RSV, but not NRSV).
