And after he took Maacah the daughter of Absalom
Thought by some to be Absalom the son of David, his father's brother, and his uncle, and so married his cousin; but Absalom seems to have had but one daughter, whose name was Tamar, ( 2 Samuel 14:27 ) , and the name of this man is different from his; he is called Abishalom, ( 1 Kings 15:2 )
and Uriel of Gibeah;
( 2 Chronicles 13:2 ) , of the tribe of Benjamin, whereas Absalom was of the tribe of Judah:
which bare him Abijah, and Attai, and Ziza, and Shelomith:
Abijah the firstborn, and who was successor in the kingdom, is the same with Abijam, ( 1 Kings 14:31 ) of the rest we nowhere else read.
