Abihail, 1

Abiha´il (Father of light or splendor), the wife of Rehoboam, king of Judah. She is called the daughter of Eliab, David's elder brother (2 Chronicles 11:18); but was doubtless only his descendant.

Abihail, 2

Abihail (Father of might, i.e. mighty). This name should be written Abichail. It was borne by several persons:

Abichail, the son of Huri, one of the family-chiefs of the tribe of Gad, who settled in Bashan (1 Chronicles 5:14).

Abichail, the father of Zuriel, who was the father of the Levitical tribes of Merari (Numbers 3:35).

Abichail, the father of Queen Esther, and brother of Mordecai (Esther 2:15).
