(1) The father of Boaz, the husband of Ruth, and thus the grandfather of Jesse, David's father (Rth 4:20, Rth 4:21). He is mentioned in both the genealogies of Jesus (Matthew 1:4 , Matthew 1:5 ; Luke 3:32 ). From Matthew 1:5 we learn that he married Rahab, by whom he begat Boaz.

(2) In 1 Chronicles 2:51 ff, we read of a Salma, "the father of Beth-lehem," a son of Caleb, the son of Hur. He is also said to be the father of "the Netophathites, Atroth-beth-joab, and half of the Manahathites, the Zorites," and several "families of scribes." See also ZALMON .
