Hushai

Hu'shai (Heb. Chushay ', חוּשִׁי, quick; Sept. and Josephus [Ant.7, 9, 2] Χουσί), called "the Archite" (q.v.) (comp. Jos 16:2) and "the king's companion," i.e. vizier or intimate adviser (1Ch 27:33), a post which he doubtless attained by his eminent services to David in defeating (B.C. cir. 1023) the plots of Ahithophel, in league with the rebellious Absalom (2Sa 15:32,37; 2Sa 16:16-18; 2Sa 17:5-15). SEE DAVID. Baanah, Solomon's vicegerent in Asher, was doubtless the son of the same (1Ki 4:16).
