Fausset's Bible Dictionary [1]

1. Seth in  1 Chronicles 1:1.

2.  Numbers 24:17 translated "destroy all the children of tumult," i.e. Moab's fierce warriors ( Exodus 15:15;  Isaiah 15:4;  Isaiah 16:6). Sheth is related to Shaon in the parallel "tumultuous ones," Hebrew "children of tumult" ( Jeremiah 48:45); others make Sheth a Moabite king.

    Sheth. (Compensation).

    1. The patriarch, Seth.  1 Chronicles 1:1. In the Authorized Version of  Numbers 24:17, not a proper name, but there is reason to regard it as an appellative. Read instead of "the sons of Sheth," "The Suns Of Tumult". Compare  Jeremiah 48:45.

    Hastings' Dictionary of the Bible [4]

    SHETH . In   Numbers 24:17 (only) AV [Note: Authorized Version.] and RVm [Note: Revised Version margin.] tr. [Note: translate or translation.] bÄ•nç shçth ‘children (sons) of Sheth,’ but there can be little doubt that the correct tr. [Note: translate or translation.] is that of RV [Note: Revised Version.] , ‘sons of tumult.’

    Morrish Bible Dictionary [5]

    Son of Adam.  1 Chronicles 1:1 . See SETH.The word occurs also in  Numbers 24:17 , where, instead of 'children of Sheth,' it is better to read 'sons of tumult;' that is, 'tumultuous war will be destroyed:' cf.  Jeremiah 48:45 .

    (Heb. id. שֵׁת ), the form of two names, one more accurate that that elsewhere, the other doubtful.

    1. The patriarch Seth ( 1 Chronicles 1:1).

    2. In the A.V. of  Numbers 24:17, שֵׁת is rendered as a proper name, but there is reason to regard it as an appellative, and to translate, instead of "the Sons of Sheth," "the sons of tumult," the wild warriors of Moab, for in the parallel passage ( Jeremiah 48:45) שָׁאוֹ , Shaon, "tumult, " occupies the place of Sheth שֵׁת , Sheth, is thus equivalent to שֵׁאת , Sheth, as in  Lamentations 3:47. Ewald proposes, very unnecessarily, to read שֵׁת , seth= שְׂאֵת , and to translate "the sons of haughtiness" ( Hochmuthsssohne ) . Rashi takes the word as a proper name, and refers it to Seth the son of Adam; and this seems to have been the view taken by Onkelos, who renders "he shall rule all the souls of men." The Jerusalem Targum gives "all the sons of the East;" the Targum of Jonathan ben-Uzziel retains the Hebrew word Sheth, and explains it "of the armies of Gog who were to set themselves in battle array against Israel."
