Beloved, the Kenite, has been usually identified with Jethro (q.v.), Exodus 18:5, 27; comp. Numbers 10:29, 30. In Judges 4:11, the word rendered "father-in-law" means properly any male relative by marriage (Comp. Genesis 19:14, "son-in-law, " A.V.), and should be rendered "brother-in-law," as in the R.V. His descendants followed Israel to Canaan (Numbers 10:29), and at first pitched their tents near Jericho, but afterwards settled in the south in the borders of Arad (Judges 1:8-11, 16).
