ETHEM. A wicked king of the later Jaredites, living, most probably, in the eighth century before Christ. He was the son and successor of Ahah. In Ethem's days, many prophets came and prophesied that unless the Jaredites repented the Lord would utterly destroy them from the earth. But the people hardened their hearts and repented not; and the prophets mourned over their depravity and withdrew from among them. Ethem was as his people, and did wickedly all his days; and when he died he was succeeded by his son Moron, who was like unto his father.
