Pelonite, The

Pelonite, The.

Two of Davids men, Helez and Ahijah, are called Pelonites. ( 1 Chronicles 11:27 1 Chronicles 11:36 ) (B.C. about 1015.) From ( 1 Chronicles 27:10 ) it appears that the former was of the tribe of Ephraim, and "Pelonite" would therefore be an appellation derived from his place of birth or residence. "Ahijah the Pelonite" appears in ( 2 Samuel 23:34 ) as "Eliam the son of Ahithophel the Gilonite," of which the former is a corruption.
