For the son of Jesse, see Shimeah.

In the Bible, Shammah (Hebrew: שַׁמָּה‎) was the son of Agee, a Haratite, and one of King David's three legendary "mighty men".

His greatest deed was the defeat of a troop of Philistines. After the Israelites fled from the troop of Philistines, Shammah stood alone and defeated them himself.

He is referenced in only a few verses of the second book of Samuel in the Hebrew Bible 23:11-12.

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.
