IRA [smith](watchful of a city).

- One of the heroes of David?s guard. (2Â Samuel 23:38; 1Â Chronicles 11:40)

IRA [isbe]IRA - i'-ra (`ira'; Eiras):
(1) A person referred to in 2 Sam 20:26 as "priest" (so the Revised Version (British and American) correctly; the King James Version "a chief ruler," the American Standard Revised Version "chief minister") unto David. The translation of the Revised Version (British and American) is the only possible one; but, according to the text, Ira was "a Jairite," and thus of the tribe of Manasseh (Nu 32:41) and not eligible to the priesthood. On the basis of the Peshitta some would correct "Jairite" of 2 Sam 20:26 into "Jattirite," referring to Jattir, a priestly city within the territory of Judah (Josh 21:14). Others point to 2 Sam 8:18 margin, "David's sons were priests," as an indication that in David's time some non-Levites were permitted to serve--in some sense--as priests.
(2) An "Ithrite," or (with a different pointing of the text) a "Jattirite," one of David's "thirty" (2 Sam 23:38 parallel 1 Ch 11:40); possibly identical with (1).
(3) Another of David's "thirty," son of Ikkesh of Tekoa (2 Sam 23:26; 1 Ch 11:28) and a captain of the temple guard (1 Ch 27:9).
