  From  Easton's  1897  Bible  Dictionary  [easton]: 
 
  Ahimaaz 
  brother  of  anger  =  irascible.  (1.)  The  father  Ahinoam,  the  wife 
  of  Saul  (1  Sam.  14:50). 
 
  (2.)  The  son  and  successor  of  Zadok  in  the  office  of  high 
  priest  (1  Chr.  6:8,  53).  On  the  occasion  of  the  revolt  of 
  Absalom  he  remained  faithful  to  David,  and  was  of  service  to  him 
  in  conveying  to  him  tidings  of  the  proceedings  of  Absalom  in 
  Jerusalem  (2  Sam.  15:24-37;  17:15-21).  He  was  swift  of  foot,  and 
  was  the  first  to  carry  to  David  tidings  of  the  defeat  of 
  Absalom,  although  he  refrained,  from  delicacy  of  feeling,  from 
  telling  him  of  his  death  (2  Sam.  18:19-33).
