Ammiel (Hebrew: עַמִּיאֵל‎‎ ‘Ammî’êl) means "my kinsman is El." It may refer to several people in the Hebrew Bible:

  • Ammiel, son of Gemalli, one of the twelve spies sent by Moses to search the land of Canaan (Numbers 13:12). He was one of the ten who perished by the plague for their unfavourable report (Numbers 14:37).
  • The father of Machir of Lo-debar, in whose house Mephibosheth the son of Jonathan resided (2 Samuel 9:4, 5; 17:27).
  • The father of Bathsheba, the wife of Uriah, and afterwards of David (1 Chronicles 3:5). He is called Eliam in 2 Samuel 11:3.
  • One of the sons of Obed-edom the Levite (1 Chronicles 26:5).
