Smith's Bible Dictionary
Pel'onite, The. Two of David's men, Helez and Ahijah, are called Pelonites. 1 Chronicles 11:27; 1 Chronicles 11:36. (B.C. about 1015). From 1 Chronicles 27:10, it appears that, the former was of the tribe of Ephraim, and "Pelonite" would, therefore, be an appellation derived from his place of birth or residence. "Ahijah, the Pelonite" appears in 2 Samuel 23:34, as "Eliam, the son of Ahithophel, the Gilonite," of which the former is a corruption.
