Son of Ginath. After Zimri had burned himself to death half the people followed Tibni, half Omri. The contest lasted four years (1Ki_16:18; 1Ki_16:21-22), and issued in the death of Tibni and in Omri's accession. The men of Tirzah which Omri besieged probably promoted the cause of Tibni. The Septuagint say Joram his brother helped his cause.
