AH, AHI ā, ā’ hī (אָח֮, H278, אֲחִי׃֙, brother, my brother). 1. These words are used in the forming of names, as Joah (Jehovah is brother), Ahab (father’s brother), and Ahimelech (king’s brother).
2. An Ahi was a member of the tribe of Gad (1 Chron 5:15), and another was a member of the tribe of Asher (1 Chron 7:34), although the RSV takes the Ahi of the second passage as a common noun, “his brother.”
