Shim'eah (Heb. Shimnah', שַׁמַעָה [text in 2Sa 21:21, Shimay', שׁמעִי, but the margin has שַׁמעָא], i. q. Shimea, Sept. Σαμαά, v. r. Σαμά, Σεμαά, Σαμεά; in 2Sa 21:21, Σεμε‹), the name of two Hebrews.
1. One of David's older brothers, and father of Jonathan and Jonadab (2Sa 21:21); elsewhere (1Sa 16:9) called SHAMMAH SEE SHAMMAH (q.v.), also SHIMEA (1Ch 20:7; "Shimma," 1 Chronicles ii, 13).
2. A "son" of Mikloth, who seems to have been the youngest son of Jehiel, a Benjamite, and "father" (founder) of Gibeon (1Ch 8:32). B.C. perhaps 536. In a parallel passage (1Ch 9:38) he is called SHIMEAM SEE SHIMEAM (q.v.).
