Etymology of the name ABIJAH.
Meaning of the baby name ABIJAH.


ABIJAH.  [Heb. Abhiyahu = "to whom Jehovah is a father"].  This name is used once (2 Chron. xxix. 1) as an alternate spelling for feminine Abi
    Abijah Gilbert (d. 1881), was a U.S. Senator from Florida. (Wiki)

     (1) A son of Jeroboam.  While yet a child he fell dangerously sick, and Jeroboam sent his queen in disguise to the prophet Abijah, the same who had predicted that he should obtain the kingdom, to inquire what the issue of the sickness would be.  The prophet recognised the queen, notwithstanding her disguise, denounced judgment against Jeroboam for his apostacy from Jehovah, and added that the child would die, and obtain honorable burial, because in him alone of all that household was found some good thing towards the Lord God of Israel.  All happened as the seer had foretold (1 Kings 14:1-18).
     (2) The name given in Chronicles to the son and successor of Rehoboam, called in Kings Abijam (q.v.) "a person of maritime tendencies." (The Sunday School Teacher's Bible Manual, Hunter, 1894)
