Eliphelet (I-lif´uh-let; Heb., possibly “God’s deliverance” or “the divine deliverer”)

1 David’s last son, born in Jerusalem to a nameless wife or concubine (2Sam 5:16). The repetition of the name in 1Chr 3:6, 1Chr 3:8 is difficult to explain (1Chr 14:5; 1Chr 14:7). 2 One of David’s strong men, the son of Ahasbai (2Sam 23:34). The author of Chronicles may call him Eliphal, son of Ur (1Chr 11:35). 3 A descendant of Saul and Jonathan, the third son of Eshek (1Chr 8:39). 4 The son of Adonikam, a leader returned from the Babylonian exile (Ezra 8:13; 1Esd 8:39). 5 The son of Hashum, husband of a foreign woman (Ezra 10:33; 1Esd 9:33).
