same as Zabad

zab'-di (zabhdi>, perhaps "(a) gift of Yahweh" or "my gift" = New Testament "Zebedee"):
(1) An ancestor of Achan (Joshua 7:1,17,18). Some Septuagint manuscripts and 1 Chronicles 2:6 have "Zimri" (zimri); "the confusion of the Hebrew letter beth (b) and the Hebrew letter mem (m) is phonetic; the confusion of the Hebrew letter daleth (d) and the Hebrew letter resh (r) is graphic" (Curtis, Chronicles, 86).
See ZIMRI, (3).
(2) A Benjamite, son of Shimei (1 Chronicles 8:19), and possibly a descendant of Ehud (Curtis).
(3) "The Shiphmite," one of David's officers who had charge of the wine-cellars (1 Chronicles 27:27). The Septuagint's Codex Vaticanus has Zachrei (probably Zichri).
See ZICHRI, I, 2.
