Mahath in the Bible Encyclopedia - ISBE
ma'-hath (machath, "snatching"; Meth):
(1) One of the Kohathites having charge of the "service of
song" in David's time, son of Amasai (1 Ch 6:35). Possibly the
same as Ahimoth (1 Ch 6:25). He seems also to be the same as
the person named in 2 Ch 29:12 during Hezekiah's time, though
it is probable there is some confusion in the narrative. He is
there represented as taking part in the new covenant of
Hezekiah and the cleansing of the Lord's house.
(2) One of the overseers of the temple under Conaniah and
Shimei (2 Ch 31:13); three passages of Scripture give the
name, but it is difficult to individuate these because the
genealogy identifies the two first named (1 Ch 6:35; 2 Ch
29:12), while the chronology seems to divide them--one in
David's day, the other in Hezekiah's. It is not, however,
impossible to identify the man of 2 Ch 29:12 with him of 2 Ch
31:13. Possibly the genealogy has been mistakenly repeated in
2 Ch 29:12.
