[or Jash'ub] (Heb. Yashub', יָשׁוּב, returner; once by error, יָשַׁיב, Yashib', in text 1Ch 7:1; Samar. Pent. in Numbers Yosheb', יושב;
Sept. Ι᾿ασούβ), the name of two men, or, perhaps, the last is rather a place. SEE SHEAR-JASHUB.
1. The third named of the four sons of Issachar (1Ch 7:1; Nu 26:24); called JOB (perhaps by contraction or corruption [or possibly only by substitution. both having the same meaning, one from שׂוּב, and the other from אוּב]) in the parallel passage (Ge 46:13). B.C. 1856. His descendants were called JASHUBITES (Hebrew Yashubi', יָשֻׁבַי, Sept. Ι᾿ασουβί, Nu 26:24).
2. One of the "sons" (? former residents) of Bani, who divorced his Gentile wife after the Exile (Ezr 10:29). B.C. 459.
