Bible Names A-G: Ahitub


Ahitub in Easton's Bible Dictionary brother of goodness = good. (1.) The son of Phinehas. On the death of his grandfather Eli he succeeded to the office of high priest, and was himself succeeded by his son Ahijah (1 Sam. 14:3; 22:9, 11, 12, 20). (2.) The father of Zadok, who was made high priest by Saul after the extermination of the family of Ahimelech (1 Chr. 6:7, 8; 2 Sam. 8:17).

Ahitub in Fausset's Bible Dictionary 1. Ahimelech or Ahijah, whose father he was. (See AHIMELECH; AHIJAH.) 2. Amariah's son, and Zadok the high priest's father, or rather grandfather (1 Chronicles 6:7-8; 2 Samuel 8:17). Called "ruler of the house of God," i.e. high priest, 1 Chronicles 9:11. In Nehemiah 11:11 Ahitub appears as grandfather of Zadok and father of Meraioth, of the house of Eleazar. Thus there would seem to have been in the same age Ahitub of the house of Eli, sprung from Ithamar, and also Ahitub of the house of Eleazar. 3. The mention of a third Ahitub, son of another Amariah, and father of another Zadok (1 Chronicles 6:11-12), may be a copyist's error.

Ahitub in Naves Topical Bible 1. High priest, father of Ahiah 1Sa 14:3; 22:9,11,12,20 -2. Father of Zadok 2Sa 8:17; 1Ch 18:16 -3. Ruler of the house of God 1Ch 9:11; Ne 11:11 -4. The Ahitub mentioned in 1Ch 6:8,11,12 Is probably identical with the last described above, or else he is confused with Azariah 2Ch 31:10

Ahitub in the Bible Encyclopedia - ISBE a-hi'-tub ('achiTubh, "brother of goodness," i.e. "good brother," or, "my brother is goodness"): (1) The brother of Ichabod and son of Phinehas the son of Eli (1 Sam 14:3; 22:9,11,12,20), According to 1 Ch 24 he and his line were descended from Aaron through Ithamar. The record implies that he was born while his father and grandfather were priests at Shiloh, and it says that he was the father and grandfather of priests; but it is silent as to his own exercise of the priestly office. We have no information concerning the office from the time when the Philistines captured the ark till Saul became king. See AHIJAH; AHIMELECH; ABIATHAR. (2) A descendant of Aaron through Eleazar: by this fact distinguished from Ahitub, the descendant of Ithamar, though nearly contemporaneous with him. Especially known as the father of Zadok who, at Solomon's accession, became sole high priest (2 Sam 8:17; 1 Ch 6:8; 18:16). His genealogical line, from Levi to the Exile, is given in 1 Ch 6:1-15 (5:27- 41). The three successive names, Ahitub and Zadok and Ahimaaz, appear in 2 Sam (8:17; 15:27, etc.). The line is paralleled by selected names in Ezr 7:1-5, and relatively late parts of it are paralleled in 1 Ch 9:11 and Neh 11:11. The best explanation of certain phenomena in Chronicles is that the record was copied from originals that were more or less fragmentary. In some cases, also, a writer gives only such parts of a genealogy as are needed for his purpose. It is due to these causes that there are many omissions in the genealogical lists, and that they supplement one another. Allowing for these facts there is no reason why we should not regard the genealogies of Ahitub as having distract historical value. (3) In the genealogies, in the seventh generation from Ahitub, the descendant of Eleazar, appears another Ahitub, the son of another Amariah and the father (or grandfather) of another Zadok (1 Ch 6:11 (5:37); 9:11; Neh 11:11). The list in Ezr 7 omits a block of names, and the Ahitub there named may be either 2 or 3. He is mentioned in 1 Esdras 8:2 and 2 Esdras 1:1, and the name occurs in Judith 8:1. In these places it appears in the English versions in the various forms: Ahitub, Ahitob, Achitob, Acitho.

Ahitub in Wikipedia brother of goodness = good. A few people in the Bible have this name: (1.) The son of Phinehas, grandson of Eli, and brother of Ichabod. On the death of his grandfather Eli he most likely succeeded to the office of high priest, and would have been succeeded by his son Ahijah (references to Ahitub as the father of are in 1 Sam. 14:3; 22:9, 11, 12, 20). Ahijah (also spelled Ahiah), who is listed as his son in 1 Samuel 14:2-3, 18-19 , may have been the same person as Ahimelech (1 Samuel 22:9-20 ), or he may have been another son of Ahitub (probably an elder son if this was the case). Preceded by Eli High Priest of Israel Succeeded by Ahijah (2.) The father of Zadok (2 Sam. 8:15-17 ). This Ahitub was the son of Amariah, who was the son of Meraioth, who was the son of Zerahiah, who was the son of Uzzi, who was the son of Bukki, who was the son of Abishua, who was the son of Phinehas, who was the son of Eleazar, who was the son of Aaron (1 Chronicles 6:3-8 ). There is a faint possibility that this Ahitub was made high priest by Saul after the extermination of the family of Ahimelech, but it is very unlikely as there are apparently no references supporting this. It is much more likely that Saul had no official high priest after this incident until the end of his reign (see Josephus's Antiquities of the Jews, Book VI, Chapter XII, Paragraph 7 . (3.) A priestly descendant through the priestly line of the first Zadok. This Ahitub is mentioned in 1 Chronicles 6:11- 12 . To make matters a bit more confusing, this Ahitub also had a son (or probably grandson) by the name of Zadok. This Ahitub may have been high priest in the later time of the kings, but he also may not have been a high priest. He did become the ancestor of later high priests, which served during the fall of Jerusalem and post-exile. (4.) An ancestor of a person mentioned in Nehemiah 11:11 . This person might be one of the three prementioned persons, but probably is not.
