AHIMELECH . 1 . Son of Ahitub, and grandson of Phinehas. He either succeeded his brother Ahijah in the priesthood, or more probably was the same person under another name ( 1 Samuel 14:3 ; 1 Samuel 14:18 ). For his fate see Doeo. In 2 Samuel 8:17 and 1 Chronicles 18:16 ; 1 Chronicles 24:6 the names of Abiathar and Ahimelech have been transposed. 2 . A Hittite, who joined David when a fugitive ( 1 Samuel 26:6 ).
