Who is Ahimelech?
Ahimelech, the son of Ahitub and father of Abiathar, described in 2 Sam. 8:17 as the son of Abiathar and in four places in 1 Chronicles. He descended from Aaron's son Ithamar and the high priest Eli. In 1 Chr. 18:16 his name is Abimelech according to the Masoretic Text, and is probably the same as Ahiah. He was the twelfth High Priest, and officiated at Nob, where he was visited by David when David fled from Saul. He was summoned into Saul's presence, and accused, on the information of Doeg the Edomite, of disloyalty because of his kindness to David; whereupon the king commanded that he, with the other priests who stood beside him, 86 in all, should be slain with his family. This sentence was carried into execution by Doeg in the most cruel manner. Possibly Abiathar had a son also called Ahimelech, or the two names, as some think, may have been accidentally transposed in 2 Sam. 8:17; 1 Chr. 18:16, marg.; 24:3, 6, 31.
