Ahilud

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).
