Jabez
Jabez or Jabes is a Biblical male given name from the Old Testament. It is of Hebrew origin. In Arabic and Persian it is transliterated as Yabis or Yabiz ( يَعْبِيصَ ). In 1 ChroniclesJabez is a well-respected man (hinted to be an ancestor in the lineage of the kings' tribe of Judah, though none of his family is mentioned) whose prayer to God for blessing was answered (see 1 Chronicles 4:9-11). In Syriac and Arabic Versions, he father called his name ainei or "aina", MY EYE. In the Adam Clarke Commentary points out, that Jabez was also called “Othniel, the son of Kenaz. And he was called Jabez, because in his council he instituted a school of 31 disciples; they were called Tirathim, because in their hymns their voice was like trumpets; and Shimaathim, because in hearing they lifted up their faces, i.e., in prayer; and Suchathim, because they were overshadowed by the Spirit of prophecy. These Salmaei were the children of Zipporah, who were numbered among the Levites who came from the stock of Moses, the master of Israel, whose righteousness profited them more than chariots and horses” (Targum, quoted by Adam Clarke Commentary on I Chron.2:55).
