What are the…
Ashurites

Hebrew: אֲשׁוּרִי —transliteration: Ashuwriy —meaning: Asshurim, descendants of Asshur

also known as: Ash'urites

These people are briefly mentioned by this name in Scripture among those over whom Prince Ish-bosheth was made king (2 Samuel 2:9).

This is most logically assumed to refer to the Asherites, that is, the tribe of Asher.
