Maachah (Micaiah) BAT ABISHALOM

Abijah BEN REHOV'AM ha-David, King of Judah (915/913-913/911BC)

  • Died: Abt 911 B.C.

   General Notes:

He began his three years' reign (2 Chr. 12:16; 13:1,2) with a strenuous but unsuccessful effort to bring back the ten tribes to their allegiance. His address to "Jeroboam and all Israel," before encountering them in battle, is worthy of especial notice (2 Chr. 13:5-12). It was a very bloody battle, no fewer than 500,000 of the army of Israel having perished on the field. He is described as having walked "in all the sins of his father" (1 Kings 15:3; 2 Chr. 11:20-22).

A more complete biography than that of the Hebrew Bible of Abijah was written by Iddo the Seer, but it is no longer extant. Abijah had fourteen wives who bore him thirty-six children. He was buried beside his ancestors in Jerusalem. He was succeeded by Asa.

   Marriage Information:

Abijah married Maachah (Micaiah) BAT ABISHALOM, daughter of Absalom (Abishalom) BEN DA'UD of Jerusalem and Unknown.
