|Lehite PN||1.||Nephite scribe and historian, son of ENOS 4th – 5th c. BC (Jarom 1:1, 14; Omni 1:1)|
From the Hebrew rām, “to rise, be exalted,” in the qal 3 m.s. jussive, the PN JAROM means “let [the Lord] be exalted." The printer's manuscript PN variant form JORAM is from the Hebrew yoram "Jehovah is exalted."
