Bible Names A-G: Abiasaph
Abiasaph in Easton's Bible Dictionary
father of gathering; the gatherer, the youngest of the three
sons of Korah the Levite, head of a family of Korhites
6:24); called Ebisaph (1 Chr. 6:37).
Abiasaph in Fausset's Bible Dictionary
("whose father God took away," namely, Korah: Numbers
16. Or else, "the father of gathering, the gatherer".)
Head of a family of Korhites (a house of the Kohathites):
Exodus 6:24; 1 Chronicles 6:37. Possibly Abiasaph may be a
distinct person from Ebiasaph; in genealogies generations are
often passed over between two persons of the same name. The
descendants of Abiasaph, of whom Shallum was chief, were
"keepers of the gates of the tabernacle" (1 Chronicles 9:19; 1
Chronicles 9:31), and "had the set office over the things made
in the pans," in David's time. Compare Nehemiah 12:25.

Abiasaph in Naves Topical Bible
Son of Korah
Abiasaph in Smiths Bible Dictionary
(father of gathering, i.e. gathered), Ex 6:24 otherwise
written Ebi/asaph. 1Ch 6:23,37; 9:19 one of the descendants of
Korah, and head of the Korhites. Among the remarkable
descendants of Abiasaph were Samuel the prophet, 1Sa 1:11 and
Heman the singer.
Abiasaph in the Bible Encyclopedia - ISBE
a-bi'-a-saf, ab-i-a'-saf ('abhi-'acaph, "my father has
gathered"): A descendant of Kohath the son of Levi (Ex 6:24; 1
Ch 6:23,37 (8,22); 9:19). In Chronicles the name is 'ebh-
yacaph, which seems to be a mere variant spelling. The
Samaritan version has the same form in Exodus. The list in
Exodus terminates with Abiasaph, who is to be regarded as the
contemporary of Phinehas, the grandson of Aaron. The two lists
in 1 Ch 6 lead up to the prophet Samuel and the singing
companies which David is said to have organized. The list in 1
Ch 9 leads up to the Korahite porters of the time of Nehemiah.
Apparently all the lists intentionally omit names, just names
enough being given in each to indicate the line.
