Bible Names A-G: Archite


Archite in Easton's Bible Dictionary the usual designation of Hushai (2 Sam. 15:32; 17:5, 14; 1 Chr. 27:33), who was a native of Archi. He was "the king's friend", i.e., he held office under David similar to that of our modern privy councillor.

Archite in Fausset's Bible Dictionary (2 Samuel 15:32.) Archi was near Bethel (Joshua 16:2).

Archite Scripture - 1 Chronicles 27:33 And Ahithophel [was] the king's counsellor: and Hushai the Archite [was] the king's companion:

Archite Scripture - 2 Samuel 16:16 And it came to pass, when Hushai the Archite, David's friend, was come unto Absalom, that Hushai said unto Absalom, God save the king, God save the king.

Archite Scripture - 2 Samuel 17:14 And Absalom and all the men of Israel said, The counsel of Hushai the Archite [is] better than the counsel of Ahithophel. For the LORD had appointed to defeat the good counsel of Ahithophel, to the intent that the LORD might bring evil upon Absalom.

Archites in the Bible Encyclopedia - ISBE ar'-kits (ha-'arki; the King James Version Archi): A clan mentioned in connection with the marking of the southern boundary of Joseph (Josh 16:2). The phrase (gebhul ha-'arki `aTaroth) offers difficulties, and it has been suggested that the order of the last two words be changed to read "the border of Ataroth-of-the-Archites." See ATAROTH. G. A. Smith identifies Ataroth with the present Atara on the high road from Jerusalem to Bethel, three and one-half miles South of Bethel and six East of th e upper Beth-horon. Hushai, the "friend" of David, was an Arcbite (2 Sam 16:16).

The Archite in Smiths Bible Dictionary (as if from a place named Erech, on the frontiers of Ephraim), the usual designation of David's friend Hushai. 2Sa 15:32; 17:5,14; 1Ch 27:33
