Word search: Names of people mentioned most often in the Bible

A bit of Bible trivia

What person's name is the most-mentioned in the Bible? Here are the 16 most frequently used names. Can you find all of them in the word search puzzle grid? The names may run forward, backward, diagonally, vertically, or horizontally.

Note: The number of times a specific name appears can vary from translation to translation. The number of occurrences given in parenthesis is the count reported by BibleGateway.com for the New International Version.

For example, BibleGateway.com reports that the name Joab is used 128 times in the New King James Version. while it appears 129 times in the New International Version.

This difference in the number of occurrences is not due to material that is missing or has been added. It is simply due to how sentences are constructed and the number of times pronouns are used instead of the person's actual name.
