    AMMIHUD

    a-mi'-hud (`ammihudh, "my kinsman is glorious"; variously in the Septuagint, Emioud or Semioud or Amioud):

    The name of several Old Testament persons.

    (1) Father of Elishama, who in the wilderness was head of the tribe of Ephraim (Numbers 1:10; 2:18; 7:48,53; 10:22; 1 Chronicles 7:26).

    (2) Father of Shemuel, who was appointed by Moses from the tribe of Simeon to divide the land among the tribes after they should have entered Canaan (Numbers 34:20).

    (3) Father of Pedahel, who was appointed from the tribe of Naphtali for the same purpose as the Ammihud of (2) (Numbers 34:28).

    (4) In the King James Version and the Revised Version, margin for the Ammihur (`ammichur,"my kinsman is noble"), who was father of Talmai of Geshur, a little Aramaic kingdom East of the Lebanon mountains, to whom Absalom fled after the murder of his brother Amnon. The weight of evidence seems to favor the reading Ammichur (2 Samuel 13:37).

    (5) A descendant of Judah through the line of Perez (1 Chronicles 9:4).
