    Zabad [N] [E] [H]

    (gift ).

    1. Son of Nathan son of Attai, son of Ahlai Sheshans daughter, ( 1 Chronicles 2:31-37 ) and hence called son of Ahlai. ( 1 Chronicles 11:41 ) (B.C. 1046.) He was one of Davids mighty men but none of his deeds have been recorded. The chief interest connected with him is in his genealogy, which is of considerable importance in a chronological point of view.
    2. An Ephraimite, if the text of ( 1 Chronicles 7:21 ) Isa correct.
    3. Son of Shimeath, an Ammonitess; an assassin who, with Jehozabad, slew King Joash, according to ( 2 Chronicles 24:26 ) (B.C. 840); but in ( 2 Kings 12:21 ) his name is written, probably more correctly, JOZACHAR.
    4. A layman of Israel, of the sons of Zattu, who put away his foreign wife at Ezras command. ( Ezra 10:27 ) (B.C. 458.)
    5. One of the descendants of Hashum who had married a foreign wife after the captivity. ( Ezra 10:33 ) (B.C. 458.)
    6. One of the sons of Nebo whose name is mentioned under the same circumstances as the two preceding. ( Ezra 10:43 )

    ZABAD

    za'-bad (zabhadh, perhaps a contraction for (1) zebhadhyah, "Yahweh has given," i.e. Zebadiah; or (2) zabhdi'el, "El (God) is my gift" (HPN, 222 f); Zabed(t), with many variants):

    (1) A Jerahmeelite (1 Chronicles 2:36,37), son of Nathan (see NATHAN, IV).

    (2) An Ephraimite, son of Tahath (1 Chronicles 7:21).

    (3) Son of Ahlai (1 Chronicles 11:41) and one of David's mighty men (the name is wanting in 2 Samuel 23:24-29).

    (4) Son of Shimeath the Ammonitess (2 Chronicles 26); he was one of the murderers of King Joash of Judah; called "Jozacar" in 2 Kings 12:21 (Hebrew verse 22). Perhaps the name in Chronicles should be Zacar (zakhar),

    (5) Name of three men who had married foreign wives:

    (a) son of Zattu (Ezra 10:27)= "Sabathus" of 1 Esdras 9:28;

    (b) son of Hashum (Ezra 10:33) = "Sabanneus" of 1 Esdras 9:33;

    (c) son of Nebo (Ezra 10:43) = "Zabadeas" of 1 Esdras 9:35.
