Easton's Bible Dictionary

Heber:

passing over. (1.) Son of Beriah and grandson of Asher (Gen 46:17; 1Ch 7:31,32).

(2.) The Kenite (Jdg 4:11,17; 5:24), a descendant of Hobab. His wife Jael received Sisera (q.v.) into her tent and then killed him.

(3.) 1Ch 4:18.

(4.) A Benjamite (1Ch 8:17).

(5.) A Gadite (5:13). (See EBER.)

Hitchcock's Bible Names Dictionary

Heber:

one that passes; anger

International Standard Bible Encyclopaedia

Heber:

he'-ber (chebher, "associate" or, possibly, "enchanter"; Eber): A name occurring several times in the Old Testament as the name of an individual or of a clan.

(1) A member of the tribe of Asher and son of Beraiah (Ge 46:17; Nu 26:45; 1Ch 7:31 f).

(2) A Kenite, husband of Jael, who deceptively slew Sisera, captain of the army of Jabin, a Canaanite king (Jud 4:17; 5:24). He had separated himself from the main body of the Kenites, which accounts for his tent being near Kedesh, the place of Sisera's disastrous battle (Jud 4:11).

(3) Head of a clan of Judah, and son of Mered by his Jewish, as distinguished from an Egyptian wife. He was father, or founder, of Soco (1Ch 4:18).

(4) A Benjamite, or clan or family of Elpaal belonging to Benjamin (1Ch 8:17).

(5) Heber, of our Lord's genealogy (Lu 3:35 the King James Version), better, Eber.

So, the name "Eber," ‘ebher, in 1Ch 5:13; 8:22, is not to be confused with Heber, chebher, as in the foregoing passages.
