Bible Names A-G: Abihail


Abihail in Easton's Bible Dictionary father of might. (1.) Num. 3:35. (2.) 1 Chr. 2:29. (3.) 1 Chr. 5:14. (4.) The second wife of King Rehoboam (2 Chr. 11:18), a descendant of Eliab, David's eldest brother. (5.) The father of Esther and uncle of Mordecai (Esther 2:15).

Abihail in Fausset's Bible Dictionary (("father of splendor".) 1. Wife of Rehoboam, king of Judah, daughter, i.e. descendant of Eliab, David's oldest brother. But Keil argues that 2 Chronicles 11:19-20 shows that in 2 Chronicles 11:18 only one wife is named; therefore the sense is "Mahalath the daughter of Jerimoth son of David and of Abihail" (the daughter of Eliab, etc.) 2. Numbers 3:35. 3. 1 Chronicles 2:23. 4. 1 Chronicles 5:14. 5. Father of Queen Esther, and uncle of Mordecai (Esther 2:15).

Abihail in the Bible Encyclopedia - ISBE ab'-i-hal ('abhichayil; in some manuscripts 'abhihayil, when feminine, but best reading is the former: "father, or cause, of strength"): Five persons in the Old Testament are called by this name: (1) A Levite and the father of Zuriel, who in the Wilderness was head of the house of Merari, Levi's youngest son (Nu 3:35); (2) The wife of Abishur, a man of the tribe of Judah, in the line of Hazron and Jerahmeel (1 Ch 2:29); (3) One of the heads of the tribe of Gad, who dwelt in Gilead of Bashan (1 Ch 5:14); (4) Either a wife of Rehoboam, king of Judah, or mother of his wife Mahalath, according to the interpretation of the text (2 Ch 11:18); probably the latter view is correct, since there is no conjunction in the text, and since (2 Ch 11:19) contemplates only one wife as already mentioned. This being true, she was the wife of Jerimath, a son of David, and daughter of Eliab, David's eldest brother. It is interesting to note this frequent intermarriage in the Davidic house; (5) Father of Queen Esther, who became wife of Xerxes (Biblical Ahasuerus) king of Persia, after the removal of the former queen, Vashti, (Est 2:15; 9:29). He was uncle of Mordecai. Edward Mack

Abihail in Wikipedia may refer to one of five different people mentioned in the Bible: Abihail the Levite lived during the time of the wandering of the Israelites in the wilderness. He was the head of the house of Merari and Levi's youngest son. (Numbers 3:35) Abihail was the wife of Abishur of the tribe of Judah. (I Chronicles 2:29) Abihail, from Gilead of Bashan, was head of the tribe of Gad. (I Chronicles 5:14) Abihail was the daughter of David's brother Eliab. She was married to David's son Jerimoth and became mother of Rehoboam's wife Mahalath. (II Chronicles 11:18) Abihail was the father of Queen Esther and uncle of Mordecai. (Esther 2:15; Esther 9:29)
