1. Bible Names Revealed

a) The Bible is an historic record of real people and places. Learn who's who, their relationships, and the meaning of their names.

2. Ahlai

a) Meaning: “Oh that!; O would that!; Would to God; Jehovah is staying.”

b) Ahlai was a descendant of Judah. Her name appears only twice once in Scripture (1 Chronicles 2:31 and 11:41). Her father was Sheshan who had no sons, but several daughters. She was a descendant of Perez, Judah’s older son by Tamar. (Matthew 1:3). The fact that she was listed in the genealogy of Jerahmeel indicates that she may have been a woman of significance. Her son Zabad was one of David's mighty men (11:41).

c) Some scholars assume that two different Ahlai’s are mentioned in 1 Chronicles 2:31 and 11:41, one female and one male. But this does not seem clear from the context.

The End ...
