Ahimaaz (Hebrew: אחימעץ ʾAḥimaʿats "My Brother Is Counselor") was son of the high priest Zadok.
He first appears in the reign of King David (reigned c. 1000-962 BCE). During Absalom's revolt he remained faithful to David, and assisted him by giving him news about the proceedings of Absalom in Jerusalem (2 Samuel 15:24-37; 17:15-21). He was a swift runner, and was the first to bring David news of the defeat of Absalom, although he refrained from mentioning his death (2 Samuel 18:19-33).
