BEN-HESED:

Commissariat officer of Solomon with residence in Aruboth in Judah (I Kings iv. 10, R.V.). His district was Hepher and Sochoh. There being several places of the name "Sochoh," it is not easy to decide which one is meant. The context speaks in favor of the one near Ḥebron (Josh. xv. 48).
