son of Ahitub, high priest of the Jews, of the race of Eleazar. At the death of Ahimelech, or Abiathar, he came to the pontificate, A.M. 2944. For some time there were two high priests in Israel, 2 Samuel 8:17; 2 Samuel 15:24 , &c; 2 Samuel 19:11-12; 1 Kings 1:8 , &c. After the death of David, 1 Kings 2:35 , Solomon excluded Abiathar from the high priesthood, because he espoused the party of Adonijah, and made Zadok high priest alone.
