Int. Standard Bible Encyclopedia
he'-ber (chebher, "associate" or, possibly, "enchanter"; Eber): A name occurring several times in the Old Testament as the name of an individual or of a clan.
(1) A member of the tribe of Asher and son of Beraiah (Genesis 46:17 Numbers 26:45 1 Chronicles 7:31 f).
(2) A Kenite, husband of Jael, who deceptively slew Sisera, captain of the army of Jabin, a Canaanite king (Judges 4:17; Judges 5:24). He had separated himself from the main body of the Kenites, which accounts for his tent being near Kedesh, the place of Sisera's disastrous battle (Judges 4:11).
(3) Head of a clan of Judah, and son of Mered by his Jewish, as distinguished from an Egyptian wife. He was father, or founder, of Soco (1 Chronicles 4:18).
(4) A Benjamite, or clan or family of Elpaal belonging to Benjamin (1 Chronicles 8:17).
(5) Heber, of our Lord's genealogy (Luke 3:35 the King James Version), better, Eber.
So, the name "Eber," `ebher, in 1 Chronicles 5:13; 1 Chronicles 8:22, is not to be confused with Heber, chebher, as in the foregoing passages.
