Achbor

Achbor (Ak´bohr; Heb., “mouse”)

1 The father of the Edomite king Baal-hanan (Gen 36:38). 2 The son of Micaiah; he was one of those sent by Josiah to inquire of Hulda the prophetess concerning the significance of the book of the law discovered in the Temple (2Kgs 22:12-14). He is possibly the same person mentioned by Jeremiah (Jer 26:22); (Jer 36:12) as the father of Elnathan, a courtier of Jehoiakim.
