(1 Chronicles 27:32; 1 Chronicles 11:11). The former is the correct rendering; the Hebrew in both passages is the same.

Hastings' Dictionary of the Bible - Hachmoni, Hachmonite
HACHMONI, HACHMONITE . Both represent one and the same Heb. word, but in 1 Chronicles 27:32 the latter is translated as a prop. name, ‘Jehiel the son of Hachmoni,’ whereas in 1 Chronicles 11:11 Jashobeam is called ‘a Hachmonite.’ We should probably render it in both cases as a gentilic name. In 2 Samuel 23:8 , which is parallel to 1 Chronicles 11:11 , we have ‘the Tahchemonite ,’ which is probably a textual error (see Adino, Josheb-basshebeth).

Morrish Bible Dictionary - Hachmoni
Father of Jehiel, a companion of David's sons. 1 Chronicles 27:32 . In 1 Chronicles 11:11 the same Hebrew word is translated 'Hachmonite.'
