Hobab


Hobab
Father-in-law of Moses (Judg. 4:11, so NRSV and NJB). But Num. 10:29, in the J source speaks of Hobab the son of Reuel, Moses' father-in-law, and it is not clear whether this means Hobab or Reuel as the father-in-law. If the latter, then Hobab is Moses' brother-in-law, which is the REB translation at Judg. 4:11. Moses' father-in-law is also sometimes called Jethro (Exod. 3:1).
