(1) An ancestor of Achan (Joshua 7:1 , Joshua 7:17 , Joshua 7:18 ). Some Septuagint manuscripts and 1 Chronicles 2:6 have "Zimri" ( זמרי , zimrı̄ ); "the confusion of the Hebrew letter bēth ()ב and the Hebrew letter mēm ()מ is phonetic; the confusion of the Hebrew letter dāleth ()ד and the Hebrew letter rēsh ()ר is graphic" (Curtis, Chronicles , 86). See ZIMRI , (3).

(2) A B enjamite, son of Shimei (1 Chronicles 8:19 ), and possibly a descendant of Ehud (Curtis).

(3) "The Shiphmite," one of David's officers who had charge of the wine-cellars (1 Chronicles 27:27 ). The Septuagint's Codex Vaticanus has Ζαχρεί , Zachreı́ (probably Zichri).

(4) An ancestor of Mattaniah (Nehemiah 11:17 ). Luc. and 1 Chronicles 9:15 have "Zichri." See ZICHRI , I, 2.
