Lunette in the Sistine Chapel of Abihud with Zerubbabel and Eliakim.

There are two biblical characters named Abihud.

The name may also occasionally be romanized as Abioud (Greek) or 'Abiyhuwd (Hebrew).


The name "Abihud" means "the (divine) father is glory", according to Cheyne and Black (1899);[1] the name "Ehud" is probably a shorter form of "Abihud."[2]


In the genealogy of Jesus, Abihud's male-line descendants are depicted:

  • Generation 1: Eliakim
  • Generation 2: Azor
  • Generation 3: Zadok
  • Generation 4: Achim
  • Generation 5: Eliud
  • Generation 6: Eleazar
  • Generation 7: Matthan
  • Generation 8: Jacob
  • Generation 9: Joseph
  • Generation 10: Jesus
