Morrish Bible Dictionary
Father of Maachah, wife of Rehoboam and mother of Abijam, king of Judah. 1 Kings 15:1,2,10 . But in 2 Chronicles 11:20 we read that Maachah was the daughter of Absalom; therefore Abishalom appears to be a fuller way of writing Absalom, and refers to the son of David. See ABSALOM.
