Ozem (Hebrew: אצם, ʼŌẓem; "Name means::strong") (b. ca. Born::2918 AM) was an elder brother of King David.
Date of Birth
Floyd Nolen Jones infers that David was born in 2919 AM and fought and killed Goliath of Gath when he was eighteen years old (2937 AM). David was the youngest of eight brothers and was not of military age. Ozem and Raddai might have been twin brothers, and also under age, so they were nineteen years old and were born in 2918 AM.
The Bible mentions Ozem once by name, when listing the descendants of Judah. (1_Chronicles 2:15 )
