Ahiram, Ahiramites

See also Ahiram

AHIRAM, AHIRAMITES ə hī’ rəm, ə hī’ rə mīts (אֲחִירָ֕ם, exalted brother, אֲחִירָמִֽי, of the family of Ahiram). Ahiram was the third of the five sons of Benjamin (Num 26:38). In 1 Chronicles 8:1, where the sons of Benjamin are explicitly numbered, the third name, Aharah, is prob. a corrupt form of Ahiram. Ahiram should prob. also be read for “Aher” in 1 Chronicles 7:12. In the Benjamite genealogy found in Genesis 46:21, “Ehi” may be an abbreviated form of Ahiram. In this genealogy ten sons of Benjamin are mentioned, but some of them are referred to as more remote descendants in other lists.
