1 Kings 4:21 Parallel
Commentary
Keil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament

Ahimaaz, possibly Zadok's son (2 Samuel 15:27; 2 Samuel 17:17.), in Naphtali. This does not denote generally "the most northern portion of the land, say from the northern end of the lake of Gennesaret into Coele-Syria," as Thenius supposes; for the tribe-territory of Asher, which had a prefect of its own, was not situated to the south-west of Naphtali, but ran along the west of Naphtali to the northern boundary of Canaan (see at Joshua 19:24-31). He also (like Ben-Abinadab, 1 Kings 4:11) had a daughter of Solomon, Basmath, as his wife.
