He was very "subtil," but unprincipled. (2.) A son of Rechab, the founder of a tribe who bound themselves by a vow to abstain from wine Jeremiah:35:6-19). There were different settlements of Rechabites Judges:1:16Judges:4:11; 1Chronicles:2:55). (See RECHABITE.) His interview and alliance with Jehu are mentioned in 2Kings:10:15-23. He went with Jehu in his chariot to Samaria.
