(Heb. Abishu'a, אֲבַישׁוּעִ , father of welfare, i.e. fortunate; Sept. Ἀβισού or Ἀβισοῦ, but in 1 Chronicles 8:4 [v. r. Ἀβεσσουέ ] and Ezra 7:5, Ἀβισουέ), the name of two men.

1. A son of Bela, and grandson of Benjamin (1 Chronicles 8:4); possibly the same as JERIMOTH (See JERIMOTH) (1 Chronicles 7:7). B.C. post 1856. (See JACOB).

2. The son of Phinehas (grandson of Aaron) and father of Bukki, being the fourth high-priest of the Hebrews (1 Chronicles 6:4-5; 1 Chronicles 6:50; Ezra 7:5). Josephus calls him Abiezer (Ἀβιεζέρης , Ant. 5. 11, 4), but elsewhere Josephus (Ι᾿ώσηπις, Ant. 8:1, 3, ed. Havercamp). He appears from the Chronicon of Alexandria to have been nearly contemporary with Ehud, B.C. cir. 1523-1466. (See HIGH-PRIEST).
