|Biblical PN||1.||Son of ISAIAH (2 Nephi 17:3 = Isaiah 7:3)|
SHEARJASHUB is given in the Isaiah section of the Book of Mormon as the name of ISAIAH's son but not as a PN in the Book of Mormon in its own right. The meaning of the name is disputed, but it could be rendered as "a remainder will turn back, will be converted." In the printer's manuscript the name was written as Shear Jashub, but later was hyphenated to Shear-Jashub. However, from its first publication in 1830 until the present, the unhyphenated form SHEARJASHUB has been given.
