Shimei: Famous.

1. A son of Gershon, and grandson of Levi (Numbers 3:18; 1 Chronicles 6:17,29) called Shimi in (Exodus 6:17)

2. A Benjamite of the house of Saul, who stoned and cursed David when he reached Bahurim in his flight from Jerusalem on the occasion of the rebellion of Absalom (2 Samuel 16:5-13) After the defeat of Absalom he "came cringing to the king, humbly suing for pardon, bringing with him a thousand of his Benjamite tribesmen, and representing that he was heartily sorry for his crime, and had hurried the first of all the house of Israel to offer homage to the king" (2 Samuel 19:16-23) David forgave him; but on his death-bed he gave Solomon special instructions regarding Shimei, of whose fidelity he seems to have been in doubt (1 Kings 2:8,9) He was put to death at the command of Solomon, because he had violated his word by leaving Jerusalem and going to Gath to recover two of his servants who had escaped (1 Kings 2:36-46).

3. One of David's mighty men who refused to acknowledge Adonijah as David's successor (1 Kings 1:8) He is probably the same person who is called elsewhere (1 Kings 4:18) "the son of Elah."

4. A son of Pedaiah, the brother of Zerubbabel (1 Chronicles 3:19)

5. A Simeonite (1 Chronicles 4:26,27)

6. A Reubenite (1 Chronicles 5:4)

7. A Levite of the family of Gershon (1 Chronicles 6:42)

8. A Ramathite who was "over the vineyards" of David (1 Chronicles 27:27)

9. One of the sons of Heman, who assisted in the purification of the temple (2 Chronicles 29:14) 10. A Levite (2 Chronicles 31:12,13) 11. Another Levite (Ezra 10:23) "The family of Shimei" (Zechariah 12:13) R.V., "the family of the Shimeites" were the descendants of Shimei (1)
