(Heb. id., אֲבַיעֶזֶר, father of help, i.e. helpful; Sept. ‘Αβιέζερ ), the name of two men.

1. The second of the three sons of Hammoleketh, sister of Gilead, grandson of Manasseh (1 Chronicles 7:18). B.C. cir. 1618. He became the founder of a family that settled beyond the Jordan [ (See OPHRAH) ], from which Gideon sprang (Joshua 7:2), and which bore this name as a patronymic (Judges 6:34), a circumstance that is beautifully alluded to in Gideon's delicate reply to the jealous Ephraimites (Judges 8:2). (See ABIEZRITE). He is elsewhere called JEEZER (See JEEZER) , and his descendants Jeezerites (Numbers 26:30). 2. A native of Anathoth, one of David's thirty chief warriors (2 Samuel 23:27; 1 Chronicles 11:28), B.C. 1053. He was afterward appointed captain of the ninth contingent of troops from the Benjamites (1 Chronicles 27:12), B.C. 1014. (See DAVID).
