The Ahihud of I Chronicles 8:7 was of the tribe of Benjamin, and was one of the heads of the family of Ehud. This name is different in the Hebrew from the other Ahihud. It means brother of mystery; brother of a riddle, i. e., mysterious. This Ahihud symbolizes the working of faith (Benjamin), which is a mystery to the consciousness that has not been awakened spiritually.
