There are other people named Shammah in the Bible who are mentioned only in passing.
Shammah is best noted as David's Mighty Man who, single handedly, defeated an entire army of 300-800 men over a lentil patch.
It is also possible Shammah is mentioned in Judges as Shamgar, who defeated 600 men of the Philistines with an ox goad. This may have been the same battle of the lentil field mentioned in The Book of Samuel.
Jehovah-Shammah - 'The Lord is Present' is one of the Hebrew names for God.
