Joel (1)

jo'-el (yo'el, popularly interpreted as "Yahweh is God"; but see HPN , 153;BDB , 222a):

See a list of verses on JOEL in the Bible.

(1) The firstborn of Samuel (1Sa 8:2; 1Ch 6:33 (Hebrew 18), and supplied in the Revised Version (British and American) of 1Ch 6:28, correctly).

(2) A Simeonite prince (1Ch 4:35). (3) A Reubenite chief (1Ch 5:4,8).

(4) A Gadite chief, perhaps the same as (3) (1Ch 5:12). He might be the chief of "a family or clan whose members might be reckoned as belonging to either or both of the tribes" (Curtis, Chronicles, 122).

(5) A Levite ancestor of Samuel (1Ch 6:36 (Hebrew 21), called "Shaul" in 6:24 (Heb 9:1-28)).

(6) A chief of Issachar (1Ch 7:3).

(7) One of David's mighty men (1Ch 11:38), brother of Nathan. 2 Sam 23:36 has "Igal son of Nathan," and the Septuagint's Codex Vaticanus has "son" in 1 Chronicles, a reading which Curtis adopts.


(8) A Levite (1Ch 15:7,11,17), probably the Joel of 1Ch 23:8 and 1Ch 26:22.

(9) David's tribal chief over half of Manasseh (1Ch 27:20).

(10) A Levite of Hezekiah's time (2Ch 29:12).

(11) One of those who had married foreign wives (Ezr 10:43) = "Juel" of 1 Esdras 9:35.

(12) A Benjamite "overseer" in Jerusalem (Ne 11:9).

(13) Ioel, the prophet (Joe 1:1; Ac 2:16). See following article.
