  From  Easton's  1897  Bible  Dictionary  [easton]: 
 
  Hobab 
  beloved,  the  Kenite,  has  been  usually  identified  with  Jethro 
  (q.v.),  Ex  18:5,  27;  comp.  Num.  10:29,  30.  In  Judg.  4:11,  the 
  word  rendered  "father-in-law"  means  properly  any  male  relative 
  by  marriage  (comp.  Gen.  19:14,  "son-in-law,"  A.V.),  and  should 
  be  rendered  "brother-in-law,"  as  in  the  R.V.  His  descendants 
  followed  Israel  to  Canaan  (Num.  10:29),  and  at  first  pitched 
  their  tents  near  Jericho,  but  afterwards  settled  in  the  south  in 
  the  borders  of  Arad  (Judg.  1:8-11,  16).
