"Free and critical minds can emerge only by a return to the source-the primary sources. A free and critical mind takes nothing for granted and is not intimidated by "authorities" who frequently may be more confused than the general public. Free and critical minds seek truth without chauvinism or shame." - Dr. Asa G. Hilliard III (1)



“One single bit of information, if missing, incomplete, out of order or just plain wrong, has the potential to significantly alter thought processes, conclusions, decisions and behaviors, even when that one single logic entry exists in a sea of accuracy.”

Until She Comes: Shiloh, Shilonites, Shelah, Shelanites
Unity Consciousness #493

.

Where Is Shiloh

“...and they brought them unto the camp to Shiloh, which is in the land of Canaan.”

“Then they said, Behold, there is a feast of the Lord in Shiloh yearly in a place which is on the north side of Bethel, on the east side of the highway that goeth up from Bethel to Shechem, and on the south of Lebonah.” (Judges 21:12. 19)

Both Bethel and Shechem are in the mountains of Mount Ephraim. (Judges 4, Joshua 21)

Shiloh was one of the locations where the ark of the covenant resided in the house of God. (Judges 18; 1 Samuel 4)

First Use of Shiloh In KJV

Genesis 49:10 (KJV), “The sceptre shall not depart from Judah, nor a lawgiver from between his feet, until Shiloh come; and unto him shall the gathering of the people be.”
Genesis 49:10 (CJB), “The scepter will not pass from Y’hudah, nor the ruler’s staff from between his legs, until he comes to whom [obedience] belongs; and it is he whom the peoples will obey.”
Genesis 49:10 (DRV), “The sceptre shall not be taken away from Juda, nor a ruler from his thigh, till he come that is to be sent, and he shall be the expectation of nations.”

First Use of Shiloh In CJB

In Joshua 16:6 (CJB), the word “Ta’anat-Shiloh” is used.
In Joshua 16:6 (KJV), the word “Taanathshiloh' is used.
In Joshua 16:6 (DRV), the word “Thanath-selo” is used.

First Use of “Shiloh” In DRV

Translations: Shiloh is not used in this version. “Selo” and “Silo” are used instead.

Ezra 8:10 (DRV), “Of the sons of Selomith, the son of Josphia...”
Ezra 8:10 (KJV), “10 And of the sons of Shelomith; the son of Josiphiah...” Leviticus 24:11 (KJV), “...and his mother's name was Shelomith...”
Leviticus 24:11 (CJB), “... His mother’s name was Shlomit...”

People Specifically Called Shilonites

Translations: H:Shiloni and D:Siloni become KJV:Shilonites.
1. From tribe of Levi: Lineage: Asaiah of Merari of Aaron of Levi (1 Chronicles 9, 15)

2. Prophet Ahijah, a Shilonite (1 King 11:29)
From tribe of Isaachar Lineage: Hoshea (King) of Elah (King) of Baasha (King) of Ahijah (Prophet) of Isaachar of Jacob Israel (& Leah) (1 Kings 16:6, 14 and 2 Kings 15:27-33; 17:1) (Genesis 35)

3. Nehemiah 11:5 (KJV), “...the son of Zechariah, the son of Shiloni.

Translations: H:Shelah and D: Silonite become Shiloni in the above verse; however, in all other instances, H:Shelah becomes Shelah; therefore:
a. either, Zechariah is the son of Shelah
b. or, everyone called a Shelanite is actually a Shilonite.

Shelah & Shelanites

Lineage: Shelah of Judah (& Bat-Shuah, a Canaanite) (Genesis 38) (1 Chronicles 2)
From tribe of Judah “And the sons of Judah after their families were; of Shelah, the family of the Shelanites...” (Numbers 26:20)

Shelanites Long Before Judah

From tribe of Shem Lineage: Shelah of Arphaxad of Shem
Translations: H:Shelach inconsistently becomes Shelah; therefore,
a. either Shelah should be Salah to match all other translations of Shelach
b. or, all appearances of Salah or Sala as single words in the KJV should be Shelah. Shelah more closely matches the Hebrew spelling of Shelach

Shelomith & Shelomites

Based on what has been discovered above, standard process requires searching all words used for the same person in the same verse in different versions, including partial words.
Translations: H:Shlomit and D:Salumith become Shelomith
From tribe of Dan Lineage: Shelomith of Dibri...of Dan (Leviticus 24:10-11)

Translation: H:Shlomi and D:Salomi become Shelomi
From tribe of Asher Lineage: Prince Ahihud of Shelomi...of Asher (Numbers 34:27)

Translations: H:Shlomit and D:Salomith become Shelomith
From tribe of Judah Lineage: Shelomith (female) of Zerubbabel of Pedaiah of Jeconiah/Coniah of Jehoiakim of Josiah of Amon of Manasseh (& Meshullemeth of Haruz of Jotbah) of Hezekiah of Ahaz of Jotham of Azariah of Amaziah of Joash of Ahaziah of Joram of Jehoshaphat of Asa of Abia/Abijam of Rehoboam & Maachah) of Solomon (& Naamah an Ammonitess of Lot's lineage) of of David (& Bathsheba/Bathshua of Ammiel/Eliam) of Jesse of Obed of Boaz (& Ruth) of Salmon (& Rachab) of Nahshon of Amminadab of Ram of Hezron of Pharez of Judah (& Tamar) (1 Chronicles 3) (1 Kings 14) (2 Chronicles 11)

From tribe of Judah Lineage: Shelomith of Rehoboam (& Maachah, Absalom's daughter) of Solomon (& Naamah an Ammonitess)...of Judah

From tribe of Levi Lineage: Shelomith of Shimei of Gershon of Levi of Jacob Israel (& Leah) (1 Chronicles 23:9) (not the same Shimei as 1 Chronicles 3)

Translations: H:Salomit and D:Salomit become Shelomith
From tribe of Levi Lineage: Shelomith of Izhar of Kohath of Levi (1 Chronicles 23)

Translations: H:Shlomit and D:Selemith become Shelomith
From tribe of Levi Lineage: Shelomith of Eliezer of Moses of Levi (1 Chronicles 26)

Translations: H:Shlomit and D:Selomith become Shelomith in Ezra 8:10

Translations: H:Shlomit and D:Salome become Salome in Mark 15:40; 16:1

Who Is Shiloh?

Shelah of Arphaxad or
Shelah of Judah or
Any number of Selo's, Shelomith's and other variations above.

It seems more likely Shiloh refers to a broader group of people than just part of the tribe of Judah. This indication is not only due to the likelihood of many tribes living in Shiloh and were called Shilonites; but also due to another, more reasonable meaning of Shiloh:
”...until she comes to whom [obedience] belongs; and it is she whom the peoples will obey.”
