International Standard Bible Encyclopedia

(1) be-thu'-el (bethu'el; "dweller in God"):

A son of Nahor and Milcah, Abraham's nephew, father of Laban and Rebekah (Genesis 22:23 ; 24:15 , 24 , 47 , 50 ; 25:20 ; 28:2 , 5). In the last-named passage, he is surnamed "the Syrian." The only place where he appears as a leading character in the narrative is in connection with Rebekah's betrothal to Isaac; and even here, his son Laban stands out more prominently than he--a fact explainable on the ground of the custom which recognized the right of the brother to take a special interest in the welfare of the sister (compare Genesis 34:5 , 21 , 25 ; 2 Samuel 13:20 , 22). Ant, I, xvi, 2 states that Bethuel was dead at this time.

Frank E. Hirsch

(2) be-thu'-el, beth'-u-el (bethu'el, "destroyed of God"):

A town of Simeon (1 Chronicles 4:30), the same as Bethul (Joshua 19:4), and, probably, as the Beth-el of 1 Samuel 30:27.
