a person mentioned in Cant 6:12 , whose chariots were famed for their swiftness. It is rendered in the margin "my willing people," and in the Revised Version "my princely people."
Probably another form of Amminadab. He was noted for the swiftness of his chariot. ( Solomon 6:12 ) It is uncertain whether we ought to read here AMMINADIB, with the Authorized Version, or my willing people , as in the margin. Ammishadda-i (people of the Almighty ), the father of Ahiezer, prince of the tribe of Dan at the time of the Exodus. ( Numbers 1:12 ; 2:25 ; Numbers 7:66 Numbers 7:71 ; 10:25 ) (B.C. 1491.)
The name occurs in the King James Version and the Revised Version, margin only in one passage (Song of Solomon 6:12, "the chariots of Amminadib"). In King James Version margin and the Revised Version (British and American) text, however, it is not regarded as a proper name, and the clause is rendered, "among the chariots of my princely people." Interpretations widely vary (see COMMENTARIES).
