jā´a - rē̇ - ôr´ē̇ - jim , - ôr´e - gim ( יעריה ארגים , ya‛ărē'ōreghı̄m ): In 2 Samuel 21:19 , given as the name of a Bethlehemite, father of Elhanan, who is said to have slain Goliath the Gittite (compare 1 Sam 17). The name is not likely to be a man's name; the second part means "weavers" and occurs also as the last word of the verse in the Massoretic Text, so it is probably a scribal error here due to repetition. The first part is taken to be (1) an error for יעיר , yā‛ı̄r (see JAIR ), which is to be read in the parallel section in 1 Chronicles 20:5 ; (2) in 2 Samuel 23:24 Elhanan is the son of Dodo, also a Bethlehemite, and Klostermann would read here Dodai as the name of Elhanan's father.
