Car´Mi (Hebrews Karmi´, כִּרמִי, vine-dresser, otherwise noble; Sept. Χαρμί, but Χαρμεί in Ex 6:14), the name of three men.
1. The last named of the four sons of Reuben (Ge 46:9; Ex 6:14). B.C. 1872. His descendants were called after him CARMITES (Nu 26:6).
2. A son of Hezron (Judah's grandson), and father of Hur (1Ch 4:1); elsewhere called CALEB (2:18) or CHELUBAI (2:9). B.C. post 1856.
3. The son of Zimri or Zabdi, and father of the traitor Achan (Jos 7:1; 1Ch 2:7). B.C. ante 1618. Some have erroneously identified him with the preceding; but the names in 1Ch 4:2, are evidently in direct succession of father and son from Judah.
