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;
