Jaare-Oregim:

forests of the weavers, a Bethlehemite (2Sa 21:19), and the father of Elhanan, who slew Goliath. In 1Ch 20:5 called JAIR.

International Standard Bible Encyclopaedia

Jaare-Oregim:

ja'-a-re-or'-e-jim, -or'e-gim (ya‘are'oreghim): In 2Sa 21:19, given as the name of a Bethlehemite, father of Elhanan, who is said to have slain Goliath the Gittite (compare 1Sa 17). The name is not likely to be a man's name; the second part means "weavers" and occurs also as the last word of the verse in the Massoretic Text, so it is probably a scribal error here due to repetition. The first part is taken to be

(1) an error for ya‘ir (see JAIR), which is to be read in the parallel section in 1Ch 20:5;

(2) in 2Sa 23:24 Elhanan is the son of Dodo, also a Bethlehemite, and Klostermann would read here Dodai as the name of Elhanan's father.
