Ahi´jah (same name as Ahiah), a prophet residing in Shiloh in the times of Solomon and Jeroboam. He appears to have put on record some of the transactions of the former reign (2 Chronicles 9:29). It devolved on him to announce and sanction the separation of the ten tribes from the house of David, as well as the foundation (1 Kings 11:29-39), and, after many years, the subversion of the dynasty of Jeroboam (1 Kings 14:7-11) [JEROBOAM].
