ja'-kin (yakhin, "he will establish"):

See a list of verses on JACHIN in the Bible.

(1) The 4th son of Simeon (Ge 46:10; Ex 6:15; Nu 26:12). In 1 Ch 4:24 his name is given as "Jarib" (compare the King James Version margin, the Revised Version margin). "Jachinites," the patronymic of the family, occurs in Nu 26:12.

(2) Head of the 21st course of priests in the time of David (1Ch 24:17). It is used as a family name in 1Ch 9:10, and as such also in Ne 11:10, where some of the course are included in the list of those who, having returned from Babylon, willingly accepted the decision of the lot, and abandoned their rural retreats to become citizens and guardians of Jerusalem (Nah 11:1 f).
