  1. brother ( i.e., " friend") of Jehovah. One of the five sons of Jerahmeel, who was great-grandson of Judah ( 1 Chronicles 2:25 ).
  2. brother ( i.e., " friend") of Jehovah. Son of Ahitub ( 1 Samuel 14:3 1 Samuel 14:18 ), Ichabod's brother; the same probably as Ahimelech, who was high priest at Nob in the reign of Saul ( 1 Samuel 22:11 ). Some, however, suppose that Ahimelech was the brother of Ahijah, and that they both officiated as high priests, Ahijah at Gibeah or Kirjath-jearim, and Ahimelech at Nob.

  6. brother ( i.e., " friend") of Jehovah. A prophet of Shiloh ( 1 Kings 11:29 ; 14:2 ), called the " Shilonite," in the days of Rehoboam. We have on record two of his remarkable prophecies, 1 Kings 11:31-39 , announcing the rending of the ten tribes from Solomon; and 1 Kings 14:6-16 , delivered to Jeroboam's wife, foretelling the death of Abijah the king's son, the destruction of Jeroboam's house, and the captivity of Israel " beyond the river." Jeroboam bears testimony to the high esteem in which he was held as a prophet of God ( 1 Kings 14:2 1 Kings 14:3 ). These dictionary topics are fromM.G.
