AHIHUD ə hī’ hŭd (אֲחִיה֖וּד, brother is majesty. 1. A leader of the tribe of Asher; son of Shelomi (Num 34:27). He was appointed by Moses to help divide the land W of the Jordan after the Israelites settled there. 2. A son of Ehud of the tribe of Benjamin (1 Chron 8:6, 7). The text is difficult and prob. corrupt, so Ahihud may be identified as the son of either Gera or Heglam. International Standard Bible Encyclopedia (1915) (’achihudh, "brother is majesty"): (1) One of the chief men of the tribe of Asher. He was selected by Moses to help divide the land west of the Jordan (Nu 34:27). (2) A son of Ehud of the tribe of Benjamin (1Ch 8:6,7). The text here is obscure and probably corrupt.
