🔼The name Zetham in the Bible
🔼Etymology of the name Zetham
The name Zetham is probably related to the word זית (zayit), meaning olive tree, or else derived from the same root:
For a meaning of the name Zetham, NOBSE Study Bible Name List reads Olive Tree and Jones' Dictionary of Old Testament Proper Names simply has Olive.
BDB Theological Dictionary declares that this name is the same as Zethan (the ־ם extension and the ־ן extension probably represent similar literary devices), which BDB also interprets as Olive Tree, albeit accompanied with the ever proper question mark, indicating that this is merely an educated guess. Here at Abarim Publications we would translate this name as Sprout or Sapling.
