ith´ra ( יתרא , yithrā ), "abundance"): The father of Amasa, commanding general in the rebel army of Absalom. It seems that his mother was Abigail, a sister or half-sister of King David ( 1 Chronicles 2:17 ). She is called the sister of Zeruiah, Joab's mother (2 Samuel 17:25 ). In this same passage Ithra is called an "Israelite," but in 1 Chronicles 2:17 ; 1 Kings 2:5 , 1 Kings 2:32 , we read: "Jether the Ishmaelite.»
