Jabez was of the tribe of Judah and nestled down in the list of genealogy in 1 Chronicles 4:9 & 10, there is Jabez. He’s not found in any other location in the Bible. There is a town called Jabez and that is the only other time that name is mentioned.
But Jabez stands out as a person who did not hesitate to make a bold prayer to the God of Israel. Jabez made four requests to God: “Oh, that You would bless me indeed, and enlarge my territory, that Your hand would be with me, and that You would keep me from evil.” The author says of the word “indeed,” it’s like Jabez is asking for God’s blessings with 3 or 4 exclamation marks. The emphasis was, God please bless me!!!
