Easton's Bible Dictionary


gnawing = mouse. (1.) An Edomitish king (Gen 36:38; 1Ch 1:49).

(2.) One of Josiah's officers sent to the prophetess Huldah to inquire regarding the newly-discovered book of the law (2Ki 22:12,14). He is also called Abdon (2Ch 34:20).

Hitchcock's Bible Names Dictionary


a rat; bruising

International Standard Bible Encyclopaedia


ak'-bor (‘akhbor, "mouse"):

(1) The father of Baal-hanan, who was the seventh of the eight kings who reigned in Edom before there were kings in Israel (Ge 36:38,39; 1Ch 1:49).

(2) The son of Micaiah (called in Chronicles Abdon the son of Micah) who went with Hilkiah the priest and other high officials, at the command of King Josiah, to consult Huldah the prophetess concerning the book that had been found (2Ki 22:12,14; 2Ch 34:20).

It may be presumed that this Achbor is also the man mentioned in Jer 26:22; 36:12, as the father of Elnathan, who went to Egypt for King Jehoiakim in order to procure the extradition of Uriah the prophet, and who protested against the burning of Baruch's roll.
