BIBLE NAMES REVEALED: BASHEMATH

(Message by Tanny Keng)

1. Bible Names Revealed

a) The Bible is an historic record of real people and places. Learn who's who, their relationships, and the meaning of their names.

2. Bashemath

a) Meaning: sweet-smelling.

b) This was the name of two biblical women…

i) The daughter of Ishmael, the last of Esau’s three wives (Genesis 36:3-4, 13), from whose son Reuel four tribes of the Edomites sprung. She is also called Mahalath (Genesis 28:9). It is noticeable that Esau’s three wives receive different names in the genealogical table of the Edomites (Genesis 36) from those given to them in the history (Genesis 26:34; 28:9).

ii) A daughter of Solomon, and wife of Ahimaaz, one of his officers (1 Kings 4:15).


The End ...
