1. The mother of Absalom; also called Maachah. 2 Samuel 3:3.

2. Maacah, or (in 1 Chronicles 19:6-7), Maachah, a small kingdom in close proximity to Palestine which appears to have lain outside Argob, Deuteronomy 3:14, and Bashun. Joshua 12:5.

The Ammonite war was the only occasion on which the Maacathites came into contact with Israel when their king assisted the Ammonites against Joab with a force which he led himself. 2 Samuel 10:6; 2 Samuel 10:8; 1 Chronicles 19:7.
