Abihail
       Abihail [father of strength].

       In the Hebrew text the h is a different letter in the name of the men and in that of the women. The difference is commonly attributed to an early misreading of the text.

       1. A Levite of the family of Merari (Num. 3:35).

       2. Wife of Abishur (1 Chron. 2:29).

       3. A Gadite (1 Chron. 5:14).

       4. Wife of king Rehoboam and a descendant of Eliab, David's brother (2 Chron. 11:18).

       5. Father of queen Esther (Esth. 2:15).
