Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

אֲחִימֶלֶךְ (“brother of the king”), [Ahimelech], pr.n.

(1) a priest living ar Nob, the father of Abiathar, the intimate friend of David (1 Samuel 21:2, 20:9 Psalms 52:2), and therefore slain by Saul. Different from this apparently may be

(2)  Ahimelech, the son of Abiathar, one of the two high priests in the time of David, 2 Samuel 8:17; 1 Chronicles 24:3, 1 Chronicles 24:6, 31 1 Chronicles 24:31. Korb, however (Winer Theol.
