Shua, Shuah

Shua, Shuah (Shoo´uh)

1 The Canaanite father of Judah’s wife (Gen 38:2). 2 An Asherite, a child of Heber (1Chr 7:32). 3 A son of Abraham and Keturah (Gen 25:2), possibly a reference to an Arab or Aramean tribe inhabiting the Upper Euphrates region. This would link with references to Shuhites, a tribe thought to have lived either there or in Edom.

Gen 38:2

2There Judah saw the daughter of a certain Canaanite whose name was Shua; he married her and went in to her.

1Chr 7:32

32Heber became the father of Japhlet, Shomer, Hotham, and their sister Shua.

Gen 25:2

2She bore him Zimran, Jokshan, Medan, Midian, Ishbak, and Shuah.
