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[1] is from the Hebrew yoram "Jehovah is exalted."

Cf. Book of Mormon RAMAH, CUMORAH, JEREMIAH, JACOM, and NAHOM.

Notes

  1. Royal Skousen, ATV s:1104, 6:3579, sees this as a scribal error, although the "o"'s and "a"'s in the Original Manuscript are nearly indistinguishable
