also known as: Ahiah, Achiyah and Achiyyah
This is the name of 7 biblical men—including a prophet.
1 Kings 11:29; 14:2
Ahijah also wrote a book with information about King Solomon’s reign that is described as "The Prophecy of Ahijah the Shilonite” (2 Chronicles 9:29).
We have on record two of his remarkable prophecies, 1 Kings 11:31-39, announcing the rending of the ten tribes (Kingdom of Israel) from Solomon; and 1 Kings 14:6-16, delivered to Jeroboam’s wife, foretelling the death of Abijah the king’s son, the destruction of Jeroboam’s house, and the captivity of Israel “beyond the river.”
In the King James Bible he is called “Ahiah.”
Ahijah, a son of Ahitub (1 Samuel 14:3, 18), Ichabod’s brother; the same probably as Ahimelech, who was high priest at Nob in the reign of Saul (1 Samuel 22:11). Some, however, suppose that Ahimelech was the brother of Ahijah, and that they both officiated as high priests, Ahijah at Gibeah or Kirjath-jearim, and Ahimelech at Nob.
