Eliam the son of Ahithophel the Gilonite; David's counsellor, that went off to Absalom, 2 Samuel 15:12; Eliam his son is supposed, by the Jews, to be the father of Bathsheba, the wife of Uriah, 2 Samuel 11:3; according to HillerusF17Onomastic. Sacr. p. 906. , he is the same with Ahijah the Pelonite, 1 Chronicles 11:36.

Commentary Critical and Explanatory on the Whole Bible - Unabridged

Eliphelet the son of Ahasbai, the son of the Maachathite, Eliam the son of Ahithophel the Gilonite,

Eliphelet the son of Ahasbai, [ 'EliypeleT (Hebrew #467), God is his deliverance] - or Eliphal (1 Chronicles 11:35). "Ahasbai" (I take refuge in God, Gesenius) the Maachathite, from Maachah; probably the modern Lejah. [The Septuagint has: Alifaleth huios tou Machachi.]

Eliam the son of Ahithophel the Gilonite, [ 'Eliy`aam (Hebrew #463)] - omitted in the parallel list of 1 Chronicles 11:1-47; traditionally believed to be the same as the person mentioned, 2 Samuel 11:23 (Jerome, 'Quaest. Hebraicae,' in loco), the father of Bath-sheba. [The Septuagint calls him "Eliab".]

Ellicott's Commentary for English Readers

(34) Eliphelet the son of Ahasbai.—The reading in Chronicles is quite different: “Eliphal the son of Ur, Hepher the Mecherathite,” thus making two heroes instead of the one given here. So, also, instead of “Eliam the son of Ahithophel the Gilonite,” Chronicles has Ahijah the Pelonite. In the latter case it seems likely that different persons are intended, one being mentioned in one list and the other in the other. It is interesting to know that a son of David’s astute but treacherous counsellor was among his thirty heroes.
