Ebi'asaph (Hebrews Ebyasaph', אֶביָסָŠ prob. a contraction for אֲבַיאָסָŠ, Abiasaph; Sept. Α᾿βιασάφ and Α᾿βισάφ, Vulg. Abiasaph), the son of Elkanah and father of Assir, in the genealogy of the Kohathite Levites (1Ch 6:23). B.C. cir. 1660. In verse 37 he is called the son of Korah, from a comparison of which circumstance with Ex 6:24, most interpreters have identified him with the Abiasaph (q.v.) of the latter passage; but (unless we there understand not three sons of Korah to be meant, but only three in regular descent), the pedigrees of the two cannot be made to tally without violence. SEE ASSIR. From 1Ch 9:19, it appears that he had a son named Kore. In 1Ch 26:1, his name is abbreviated to ASAPH SEE ASAPH .
