Bashemath


Bashemath
   Sweet-smelling.
   1) The daughter of Ishmael, the last of Esau's three wives (Gen. 36:3, 4, 13), from whose son Reuel four tribes of the Edomites sprung. She is also called Mahalath (Gen. 28:9). It is noticeable that Esau's three wives receive different names in the genealogical table of the Edomites (Gen. 36) from those given to them in the history (Gen. 26:34; 28:9).
   2) A daughter of Solomon, and wife of Ahimaaz, one of his officers (1 Kings 4:15).
