a-bi'-dan ('abhidhan, "father is judge"):

Abidan, son of Gideoni, was a "prince" of the children of Benjamin (Numbers 2:22; 10:24). He was chosen to represent his tribe at the census in the wilderness of Sinai (Numbers 1:11). When, on the erection, anointing and sanctification of the Tabernacle, the heads of Israel offered, Abidan offered on the ninth day (Numbers 7:60,65).
