1 A son of Dan who went to Egypt with Jacob (Gen 46:23), although by a reversal of letters the name is Shuham in Numbers (Num 26:4) and the clan of which he is the ancestral head is called the Shuhamites. Many scholars consider the passage in Numbers to be more accurate. 2 The son of Aher; a descendant of Benjamin (1Chr 7:12). 3 The wife of Shaharaim, a Benjaminite, and mother of Ahitub and Elpaal (1Chr 8:8; 1Chr 8:11).
23The children of Dan: Hashum.
4“Take a census of the people, from twenty years old and upward,” as the Lord commanded Moses.
The Israelites, who came out of the land of Egypt, were:
12And Shuppim and Huppim were the sons of Ir, Hushim the son of Aher.
8And Shaharaim had sons in the country of Moab after he had sent away his wives Hushim and Baara.
11He also had sons by Hushim: Abitub and Elpaal.
