Ahio in the Bible Encyclopedia - ISBE
a-hi'-o ('achyo, variously explained as "his brother,"
"brotherly," "brother of Yahweh," "my brother is Yah"):
Proper names containing a similar form of the name of Yahweh
are found on the ostraca recently exhumed at Samaria. The
word is always treated as a common noun in the ordinary
Greek copies, being rendered either "brother" or "brothers,"
or "his brother" or "his brothers"; but this is probably to
be taken as an instance of the relative inferiority of the
Greek text as compared with the Massoretic Text.
(1) One of the sons of Beriah, the son of Elpaal, the son of
Shaharaim and Hushim, reckoned among the families of
Benjamin (1 Ch 8:14). Beriah and Shema are described as
`ancestral heads' "of the inhabitants of Aijalon, who put to
flight the inhabitants of Gath."
(2) A descendant of Jeiel ("the father of Gibeon") and his
wife Maacah (1 Ch 8:31; 9:37). King Saul apparently came
from the same family (1 Ch 8:30,33; 9:39).
(3) One of the men who drove the new cart when David first
attempted to bring the ark from the house of Abinadab to
Jerusalem (2 Sam 6:3,4; 1 Ch 13:7). In Samuel Uzza and Ahio
are called sons of Abinadab. By the most natural
understanding of the Biblical data about 100 years had
elapsed since the ark was brought to the house; they were
sons of that Abinadab in the sense of being his descendants.
Whether he had a successor of the same name living in
David's time is a matter of conjecture.
