Treasury of Scripture

Hepher the Mecherathite, Ahijah the Pelonite,









(36) Hepher the Mecherathite.--Wanting in the present text of Samuel. Mecherah is unknown as a place, and a comparison with Samuel (1Chronicles 11:34) suggests "Hepher the Maachathite," i.e., of Abelbeth-Maachah, or perhaps the Syrian state of Maachah (2Samuel 10:8).

Ahijah the Pelonite.--Instead of this Samuel has "Eliam son of Ahithophel the Gilonite." For Ahithophel, see 2Samuel 15:31.

The Pelonite--i.e., so-and-so, may indicate either that Ahithophel's name had become obscure in the chronicler's MS., or that he was unwilling to mention the traitor. Ahijah (Jah is a brother) and Eliam (God is a kinsman) might be names of one person.

Verse 36. - Hepher the Mecherathite. Although this name is not found in the parallel passage, it is tolerably plain that the niche for it is left before the words (ver. 34), "the son of the Maachathite," which last word answers to our Mecherathite. Ahijah the Pelonite. This name cannot be identified with the "Eliam the son of Ahithophel the Gilonite," which answers to it in the parallel.
