Mech'erathite (Hebrews Mekerathi', מכֵרָתַי, gentile from מכֵרָה , Mekerah', a sword, as in. Ge 49:5; Sept. Μεχουραθί v. r. Μεχωραθρί, Vulg. Mecherathites), an epithet applied to Hepher, one of David's famous warriors, probably as being a native of MECHERAH, a place otherwise unknown (1Ch 11:36); but from 'the parallel passage (2Sa 23:34) it would appear to be a corruption for MAACHATHITE.
