Shebu'el

[many Sheb'uel] (Heb. Shebuel, שבוּאֵל, captive [or renown] of God; Sept. Σουβαήλ; Vulg. Sabuel), the name of two Levites.

1. A leading descendant of Gershom, the son of Moses (1Ch 23:16), who was ruler of the treasures of the house of God (26:24); called also Shubael (24:20). B.C. 1013. "The Targum of 1Ch 26:24 has a strange piece of confusion: 'And Shebuel, that is, Jonathan the son of Gershom the son of Moses, returned to the fear of Jehovah, and when David saw that he was skilful in money matters he appointed him chief over the treasures.' He is the last descendant of Moses of whom there is any trace."
