Easton's Bible Dictionary

Jashen:

sleeping, called also Hashem (1Ch 11:34); a person, several of whose sons were in David's body-guard (2Sa 23:32).

International Standard Bible Encyclopaedia

Jashen:

ja'-shen, jash'-en (yashen, "asleep"(?)): Seemingly the father of some of David s thirty valiant men (2Sa 23:32 f). The Massoretic Text reads "Eliahba the Shaalbonite, the sons of Jashen, Jonathan, Shammah the Hararite,.... "1Ch 11:33 f has Eliahba the Shaalbonite, the sons of Hashem the Gizonite, Jonathan the son of Shagee the Hararite.... " It is clear that "sons of" are a dittography of the last three consonants of the previous word. Septuagint, Lucian in 2 Samuel and 1 Chronicles has ho Gouni, "the Gunite," for "the Gizonite," perhaps correctly (compare Ge 46:24; Nu 26:48 for "Guni," "Gunite"). So 2Sa 23:32 may be corrected thus: "Eliahba the Shaalbonite, Jashen the Gunite, Jonathan the son of Shammah the Hararite." Jashen then becomes one of the thirty =" Hashem" of 1Ch 11:34.

Written by David Francis Roberts

Smith's Bible Dictionary

Jashen:

(sleeping.) Bene‐Jashen-"sons of Jashen"- are named in the catalogue of the heroes of David's guard in 2 Samuel 23:32 (B.C. 1046)
