Ahuzzath

AHUZZATH

a-huz'-ath ('achuzzath, "possession"):

A "friend" perhaps a minister, of Abimelech, king of Gerar. He together with Phicol, commander of the army, accompanied their sovereign to Beersheba to make a covenant with Isaac (Genesis 26:26). The termination "-ath" reminds us of Philistine proper names, such as Gath, Goliath, etc. Compare \Genubath\ (1 Kings 11:20).
