ABIJAH, the second King of Judah, son of Rehoboam, and Solomon's grandson; reigned three years, beginning 956 B. C. He attempted to reunite the divided kingdoms of Israel and Judah. The attempt failed, though he defeated Jeroboam and a superior force, and wrested from the King of Israel several cities.
