Ahiman in the Bible Encyclopedia - ISBE
a-hi'-man ('achiman, perhaps, "brother of fortune," or, "my
brother is fortune"):
(1) One of the names given as those of the three "children
of the Anak" (Nu 13:22; Josh 15:14; of Nu 13:28; 2 Sam
21:16,18), or the three "sons of the Anak" (Josh 15:14; Jdg
1:20). The three names (Ahiman, Sheshai, Talmai) also occur
together in Jdg 1:10. The word Anak in the Hebrew Bible has
the definite article except in Nu 13:33 and Dt 9:2. Its use
is that of a common noun denoting a certain type of man,
rather than as the proper name of a person or a clan, though
this need not prevent our thinking of the Anakim as a clan
or group of clans, who regarded Arba as their founder. The
question is raised whether Ahiman and Sheshai and Talmai are
to be thought of as persons or as clans. The most natural
understanding of the Bible statements is certainly to the
effect that they were personal leaders among the Anakim of
Kiriath-arba (Hebron). They were smitten and dispossessed by
the tribe of Judah, with Caleb for leader.
(2) A Levite, one of the gatekeepers of the latest Bible
times (1 Ch 9:17). He is associated with Akkub and Talmon
and their brethren: compare Neh 11:19.
