AMMIEL

am'-i-el (`ammi'el, "my kinsman is God"; Ameiel)): A name borne by four men in the Old Testament.
(1) One of the twelve spies sent into Canaan by Moses; son of Gemalli, of the tribe of Dan (Nu 13:12).
(2) A Benjamite, the father of Machir, a friend of David, living at Lodebar in Gilead (2 Sam 9:4,5; 17:27).
(3) Father of Bathshua (or Bathsheba), one of David's wives, who was mother of Solomon (1 Ch 3:5). In the parallel passage, 2 Sam 11:3, by transposition of the two parts of the name, he is called Eliam, meaning "my God is a kinsman."
(4) The sixth son of Obed-edom, a Levite, one of the doorkeepers of the tabernacle of God in David's life-time (1 Ch 26:5).
