Abiezer

Great-grandson of Manasseh, Numbers 26:29,30, and founder of the family to which Gideon belonged, Joshua 17...2; Jud 6...34; 8.2. In this last verse, "the vintage of Abiezer" means the first rout of the Midianites by the 300, mostly Abiezrites; and "the gleaning of the grapes of Ephraim," means the capture of Oreb and Zeeb, and other fruits of the victory, gathered by the Ephraimites.

ABIEZER

ab-i-e'-zer, a-bi-e'-zer ('abhi`ezer, "father of help," or "my father is help." Iezer, Iezerite (in the King James Version Jeezer, Jeezerite), is Abiezer with the letter beth omitted):

(1) A descendant of Joseph the son of Jacob, and head of one of the families of Manasseh that settled West of the Jordan (Numbers 26:30 Joshua 17:1-6 1 Chronicles 7:14-19). As he was great uncle to Zelophehad's daughters, who brought a case before Moses (Numbers 36), he must have been an old man at the time of the conquest. He was the son of Gilead the son of Machir, in the sense of being a more remote descendant, for Machir had sons before the death of Joseph (Genesis 50:23). The Machir that possessed Gilead and Bashan because he was "a man of war" was the Manassite family of Machir, with Jair as its great general (Joshua 17:1; Joshua 13:30, 31, Numbers 32:39-41, Deuteronomy 3:12-15). To Abiezer and other sons of Gilead territory was assigned West of the Jordan.

In later generations the name survived as that of the family to which Gideon belonged, and perhaps also of the region which they occupied (Judges 6:34; Judges 8:2). They are also called Abiezrites (Judges 6:11, 24, 8:32). The region was West of Shechem, with Ophrah for its principal city.

(2) One of David's mighty men, "the Anathothite" (2 Samuel 23:27 1 Chronicles 11:28), who was also one of David s month-by-month captains, his month being the ninth (1 Chronicles 27:12).
