Morrish Bible Dictionary [2]

Father of Jeroboam, first king of Israel. He is mentioned in scripture only to distinguish his son, there being two kings named Jeroboam.  1 Kings 11:26;  2 Kings 3:3;  2 Chronicles 9:29 , etc.

Hastings' Dictionary of the Bible [3]

Nebat Father of Jeroboam i. (  1 Kings 11:26 and onwards). The constant designation of Jeroboam i. as ‘ben-Nebat’ is probably the usage of a writer later than Jeroboam ben-Joash. It is intended, doubtless, to distinguish the two kings.

Fausset's Bible Dictionary [4]

(Heb. iebat', נְבָט ; Gesenius, Sight; Furst, Cultivation; Sept. Ναβάτ ), the father of Jeroboam (q.v.), king of Israel, in connection with whom he is always mentioned as a descendant of Ephraim, living in Zereda, a city of Manasseh ( 1 Kings 11:26, etc.;  2 Chronicles 9:29, etc.).

International Standard Bible Encyclopedia [9]

nē´bat ( נבט , nebhāṭ ): Father of Jeroboam I (  1 Kings 11:26 , and frequently elsewhere). The name occurs only in the phrase "Jeroboam the son of Nebat," and is evidently intended to distinguish Jeroboam I from the later son of Joash. See Jeroboam .
