    1.

    Small Aramean kingdom east of the Sea of Galilee (1Chronicles 19:6 ). Its territory was in the region assigned to the half-tribe of Manasseh east of the Jordan. Maacah, its king, became a mercenary of the Ammonites in their war against David (2Samuel 10:6 ). It is probable that the city Abel of Beth-maachah in Naphtali (ib. 20:15) derived its name from its relation to this kingdom and people.


    2. A wife of David, and daughter of Talmai, King of Geshur (ib. 3:3), a near neighbor of the Maachathites.
    3. King of Gath, to whose son, Achish, Shimei's servants fled early in Solomon's reign (IKings 2:39). About a half-century earlier than this event, David with 600 men had fled to Achish, son of Maoch, King of Gath (1Samuel 27:2 ) but the identification of Maoch is doubtful, though kinship is exceedingly probable.
    4. Wife of Rehoboam, King of Judah, and mother of Abijah in 1 Kings 15:2 she is called the daughter of "Abishalom," but of "Absalom" in 2Chronicles 11:20,21 . She was removed from her position as queen mother by her grandson Asa (ib. 15:16).

    Other persons of this name are mentioned in Genesis 22:24 1Chronicles 2:48 , 7:15 , 8:29 , 11:43 , 27:16 .
