Sho'bi (Heb. Shobi', שֹׁבַי, probably another form for Shobai [q.v.]; Sept. Οὐεσβί; Vulg. Seb), a son of Nahash of Rabbah of the children of Ammon (2Sa 17:27), and one of the first to meet David at Mahanaim on his flight from Absalom, and to offer him the hospitality of a powerful and wealthy chief, for he was. the son of David's old friend Nahash; and the bond between them was strong enough to survive, on the one hand, the insults of Hanun (who was probably his brother), and, on the other, the conquest, and destruction of, Rabbah. B.C. 1023. Josephus calls him Siphar (Σιφάρ), "chief (δυνάστης) of the Ammoanitish country" (Ant. 7, 9, 8).
