Amasa [Ăm'asă]—burden-bearer.

  1. The son of David’s half-sister Abigail whom Absalom made captain of his rebel army (2 Sam. 17:25; 19:13; 20). Amasa was completely defeated by his cousin Joab in the forest of Ephraim (2 Sam. 18:6-8). David not only forgave Amasa but gave him Joab’s place (2 Sam. 19:13). Joab treacherously slew him (2 Sam. 20:9-12).
  2. The name of an Ephraimite who with others resisted the bringing into Samaria the Jews Ahaz had made prisoners (2 Chron. 28:12).
