Elihoreph

ELIHOREPH (ĕl'ĭ-hō'rĕf). One of King Solomon’s scribes (1Kgs.4.3).


ELIHOREPH ĕl ə hôr ĭf (אֱלִיחֹ֧רֶף, autumn God?) One of the high officials during Solomon’s reign (1 Kings 4:3). He is further identified as a son of Shisha and one of two scribes in the reign of Solomon. His brother Ahijah was the other scribe or secretary. The suggestion that this was a title and not a personal name has no textual warrant. He undoubtedly was held in high regard by Solomon to have had such an important position and to have been regarded as a שַׂר, H8569, (prince or high officer).
