Who was Arah in the Bible?

The name of two Old Testament Israelites

Hebrew name: אָרַח (‘arach)

Name meaning: “to wander; journey”

a. Son of Ulla (1 Chronicles 7:39) – Arah is listed as the son of Ulla of the tribe of Asher.

b. Ancestor of a post-exile clan (Ezra 2:5, Nehemiah 7:10, 6:18) – Jews who returned from exile were identified and sorted according to clans, defined by a common ancestor. The descendants of Arah returned from exile with Zerubbabel (6th century B.C.). These may have been the ancestors of Arah, son of Ulla (above), but this is not certain.
