Fausset's Bible Dictionary - Jeezer
Numbers 26:30. According to some identical with Abiezer in the parallel list (1 Chronicles 7:18; Joshua 17:2). (See ABIEZER.) Keil distinguishes them, for the family sprung from Jeezer holds the first place among Manassite families, but Abiezer the son of Mathit's sister held no such eminence; from him came Gideon (Judges 6:15) who says "my family is poor (margin my thousand is meanest) in Manasseh."
