How did Abihail help Abishur ?


2 Chronicles 11:13 - 23

ESV - 13 And the priests and the Levites who were in all Israel presented themselves to him from all places where they lived. 14 For the Levites left their common lands and their holdings and came to Judah and Jerusalem, because Jeroboam and his sons cast them out from serving as priests of the Lord.

As far as I am aware, there was only one individual mentioned in the Bible named Abishur (1 Chronicles 2:28-29). He was of the tribe of Judah (the same tribe into which David and, later, Jesus were born), but he was not an ancestor of either David or Jesus (Matthew 1:2-16; Luke 3:23-38). His wife's name was Abihail. Their sons were Ahban and Molid. To my knowledge, nothing more is said of either of them.

There were multiple individuals in the Bible (both men and women) named Abihail, including the woman who was (as noted in the passage cited in the question) the mother of Mahalath, a woman whom Rehoboam (the son of Solomon, who succeeded him as king) took as one of his eighteen wives. However, to my knowledge, none of them were connected in any way with Abihail, the wife of Abishur, or with Abishur himself.
