Ash'bea (Heb. As'bei, אִשׁבֵּעִ, adjuration, otherwise swelling: Sept. Ε᾿σοβά), the head of a family mentioned as working in fine linen, a branch of the descendants of Shelah, the son of Judah (1Ch 4:21). B.C. prob. cir. 1017. The clause in which the word occurs is obscure (see Bertheau, Comment. in loc.). Houbigant and Bootruyd understand a place to be meant by the expression Beth-ashbea. The Targum of R. Joseph (ed. Wilkins) paraphrases it " the house of Eshba."
