Among the descendants of Jerahmeel is a man named "Nathan," who might be Nathan the prophet during the time of David.[1]

Date of Birth

Jerahmeel is part of the first of three generations between the birth of Hezron and the birth of his great niece Elisheba. She was likely born in 2454 AM, and Hezron was born in 2298 AM. These three generations span 156 years, and so Jerahmeel's brother Ram was probably born in 2350 AM. So Jerahmeel was born a year earlier, if not sooner.

Geography

The clan of Jerahmeel inhabited the south country of the territory of Judah in the Land of Israel. (1_Samuel 27:10 )
