Ahilud [N] [H]

(a brother of one born, i.e. before him).

  1. Father of Jehoshaphat, the recorder or chronicler of the kingdom in the reigns of David and Solomon. ( 2 Samuel 8:16 ; 20:24 ; 1 Kings 4:3 ; 1 Chronicles 18:15 ) (B.C. before 1015.)
  2. The father of Baana, one of Solomons twelve commissariat officers. ( 1 Kings 4:12 ) It is uncertain whether he is the same with the foregoing.

AHILUD

a-hi'-lud ('achiludh, "child's brother," perhaps):

The father of Jehoshaphat, who is mentioned as "recorder" in both the earlier and the later lists under David, and in the list under Solomon (2 Samuel 8:16; 1 Chronicles 18:15; 2 Samuel 20:24; 1 Kings 4:3). In the absence of proof we may assume that the father of Baana, one of Solomon's district superintendents, was the same Ahilud (1 Kings 4:12).
