BERIAH . 1 . Son of Asher ( Genesis 46:17 , Numbers 26:44 , 1 Chronicles 7:30 f.). 2 . Son of Ephraim, begotten in the days of mourning occasioned by the death of Ephraim’s four sons, who were killed by the men of Gath whilst cattle-raiding; hence the false etymology, bera‘ah = ‘in affliction’ ( 1 Chronicles 7:23 ). 3 . A Benjamite at Aijalon, who, with Shema, put the Gathites to flight (cf. No. 2). 4 . Son of the Levite Shimei ( 1 Chronicles 23:10 f.). He and his brother Jeush had not many sons, and therefore were counted as a single family.
