Shammua (Sham-yoo´uh; Heb., “heard”)

1 The son of Zaccur; he was one of the twelve spies, a representative of the tribe of Reuben, sent by Moses into Canaan (Num 13:4). 2 One of David’s sons born in Jerusalem (2Sam 5:14; 1Chr 14:4); he is also called Shimea (1Chr 3:5). 3 A Levite whose son Abda (Obadiah) was a postexilic inhabitant of Jerusalem (Neh 11:17); he is elsewhere called Shemaiah (1Chr 9:16). 4 The head of the clan of Bilgah during the period of restoration (Neh 12:18); he is possibly the same as 3 above, although since this person lived in the time of the second high priest after the return from the exile, it is probably a different person (see v. 12).
