“Hushim ” means who makes haste

  1. In (Genesis 46:23) "the children of Dan" are said to have been Hushim. The name is plural, as if of a tribe rather than an individual. In (Numbers 26:42) the name is changed to Shuham.
  2. A Benjamite, (1 Chronicles 7:12) and here again apparently the plural nature of the name is recognized, and Hushim are stated to be "the sons of Aher."
  3. One of the two wives of Shaharaim. (1 Chronicles 8:8) (B.C. 1450.)
