Abishu´a (father of safety), the son of Phinehas, and fourth high-priest of the Jews (1 Chronicles 6:50). The commencement and duration of his pontificate are uncertain, but the latter is inferred, from circumstances, to have included the period in which Ehud was judge, and probably the preceding period of servitude to Eglon of Moab. He is called Abiezer by Josephus (Antiq. v. 11, 5).
