ar'-ni (Arnei, found only in Luke 3:33 the Revised Version (British and American), following Westcott and Hort, The New Testament in Greek):
The name of an ancestor of Jesus Christ. But in the King James Version, following Textus Receptus of the New Testament, and in the genealogical list of Matthew 13:4 the same person is called Aram (Greek: Aram) in both the King James Version and the Revised Version, margin. In Mt the Revised Version (British and American), however, the form is Ram, which is nearest to the Old Testament name Ram (ram, "high"). Ram was great-grandson of Judah and ancestor of David (Ruth 4:19; 1 Chronicles 2:9,10).
