Hastings' Dictionary of the Bible - Abiezer
ABIEZER (‘father is help’). 1 . The name occurs also in the abbreviated form Jezer . He is called the son of Hammolecheth, sister of Machir, the son of Manasseh ( 1 Chronicles 7:18 ). His descendants formed one of the smallest clans belonging to the Gileadite branch of the tribe of Manasseh, the best known member of which was Gideon. According to Judges 6:24 ; Judges 8:32 , the Abiezrites were settled at Ophrah; they were the first to obey the summons of Joshua to fight against the Midianites. 2 . An Anathothite, one of David’s thirty-seven chief heroes, who had command of the army during the ninth month ( 2 Samuel 23:27 , 1 Chronicles 27:12 ).

American Tract Society Bible Dictionary - Abiezer
Great-grandson of Manasseh, Numbers 26:29,30 , and founder of the family to which Gideon belonged, Joshua 17.2 ; Judges 6.34 ; 8.2 .

("father of help".)

1. Oldest son of Gilead, descendant of Manasseh; head of a leading family, of which were Joash and Gideon (Judges 6:11-24; Judges 6:34; Judges 8:2). Gideon soothed the wounded vanity of Ephraim when upbraiding him for not having called in their aid against Midian, saying "Is not the grape of Ephraim better than the vintage of Abiezer?" (Joshua 17:2.) The form is Jeezer in Numbers 26:30, but (See JEEZER. Originally Abiezer's family must have been E. of Jordan. In 1 Chronicles 7:18 Abiezer is made son of Gilead's sister. The family must have afterward passed to the W. of Jordan; for Joash the Abiezrite lived in Ophrah, which seems to have been on a hill, facing from the S. the Esdraelon plain, the scene of so many contests.

2. 2 Samuel 23:27.
