SHIMEI

(sshih meh' i) Personal name meaning, “my being heard.” 1. Grandson of Levi and head of Levitical family (Exodus 6:17; Numbers 3:18; compare 1 Chronicles 6:42). 2. A Levite (1 Chronicles 23:9 if the text does not represent duplication in copying as some commentators suggest; compare 1 Chronicles 23:10). 3. Relative of King Saul who cursed and opposed David as he fled from Absalom (2 Samuel 16:1). When David returned after Absalom's death, Shimei met him and pleaded for forgiveness and mercy, which David granted because of the festive occasion (2 Samuel 19:1). Solomon followed David's advice and had Shimei slain (1 Kings 2:1).

4. Court personality who refused to support Adonijah against Solomon (1 Kings 1:8). 5. District supervisor in territory of Benjamin responsible for supplying Solomon's court one month each year (1 Kings 4:18); he could be identical with 4. above. 6. Ancestor of Mordecai, the cousin of Esther (Esther 2:5). 7. Brother of Zerubbabel (1 Chronicles 3:19). 8. Member of tribe of Simeon (1 Chronicles 4:26). 9. Member of tribe of Reuben (1 Chronicles 5:4). 10. A Levite (1 Chronicles 6:29). 11. A Benjaminite (1 Chronicles 8:21; apparently identical with Shema in 1 Chronicles 8:13). 12. Temple musician under David (1 Chronicles 25:17; perhaps also in 1 Chronicles 25:3 with a Hebrew manuscript and some Greek manuscripts as in NRSV, REB, NAS, NIV, TEV). 13. Supervisor of David's vineyards (1 Chronicles 27:27). 14. and 15. Two Levites under Hezekiah (2 Chronicles 29:14; 2 Chronicles 31:12-13). 16. Levite married to a foreign woman under Ezra (Ezra 10:23). 17. and 18. Two Jews married to foreign women under Ezra (Ezra 10:33,Ezra 10:38).
