From: Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary

 Hushai
    quick, "the Archite," "the king's friend" (1 Chr. 27:33). When
    David fled from Jerusalem, on account of the rebellion of
    Absalom, and had reached the summit of Olivet, he there met
    Hushai, whom he sent back to Jerusalem for the purpose of
    counteracting the influence of Ahithophel, who had joined the
    ranks of Absalom (2 Sam. 15:32, 37; 16:16-18). It was by his
    advice that Absalom refrained from immediately pursuing after
    David. By this delay the cause of Absalom was ruined, for it
    gave David time to muster his forces.

From: Hitchcock's Bible Names Dictionary (late 1800's)
