    AMMIEL

    am'-i-el (`ammi'el, "my kinsman is God"; (Ameiel)):

    A name borne by four men in the Old Testament.

    (1) One of the twelve spies sent into Canaan by Moses; son of Gemalli, of the tribe of Da (Numbers 13:12).

    (2) A Benjamite, the father of Machir, a friend of David, living at Lodebar in Gilead (2 Samuel 9:4,5; 17:27).

    (3) Father of Bathshua (or Bathsheba), one of David's wives, who was mother of Solomon (1 Chronicles 3:5). In the parallel passage, 2 Samuel 11:3, by transposition of the two parts of the name, he is called Eliam, meaning "my God is a kinsman."
