NAHASH

(nay hassh) Personal name meaning, “serpent” or perhaps “magnificence.” 1. Ammonite ruler whose assault of Jabesh-Gilead set the stage for Saul's consolidation of power as king (1 Samuel 11:1-11). Saul's opponent was likely the Nahash who befriended David (2 Samuel 10:1-2). His son Hanun provoked David's anger (2 Samuel 10:3-5). Another son, Shobi, served as David's ally (2 Samuel 17:27). 2. Parent of Abigal (2 Samuel 17:25). Various harmonizations of 2 Samuel 17:25 and 1 Chronicles 2:16 have been offered. Nahash was a woman. Nahash is an alternate name for Jesse. The Amorite ruler Nahash and Jesse were at different times the husband of the same woman.
