Aliah

ALIAH. Alternate form of Alvah.

International Standard Bible Encyclopedia (1915)

One of the dukes, or heads of thousands of Edom (1Ch 1:51). In Ge 36:40 the name is Alvah (`alwah), the only difference being the change of the weaker w, of Ge to the somewhat stronger, y, of the later Chronicles, a change which is not infrequent in Hebrew. He is not to be confused, as in HDB, with the Alian of the same chapter.
