jad'-us (Codex Vaticanus, Iaddous; Codex Alexandrinus, Ioddous):
the King James Version has "Addus" = Barzillai (Ezra 2:61; Nehemiah 7:63). Jaddus was removed from the office of the priesthood because he could not prove his right to it after the return to Jerusalem under Zerubbabel (1 Esdras 5:38). He is called Barzillai in the. Old Testament, because he married Augia, the daughter of Zorzelleus (Barzillai the Gileadite, in the Old Testament). Compare BARZILLAI.
