Jokshan (Hebrew: יקשן, Yoqshān; "Name means::insidious") was the second son of Son of::Abraham and Son of::Keturah. Jokshan was the father of Sheba and Dedan. Dedan had three sons, named Asshur, Letush, and Leum (Genesis 25:3 ).
Seemingly unknown outside the biblical records, Jokshan appears to have settled with his descendants in northern Arabia and Anatolia blending with the Indo-European Hittites, while others seem to have moved south into Arabia Felix (Yemen) blending into the Joktanite Arab tribes of the region.
