  • The eldest of Aaron's four sons (Exodus 6:23 ; Numbers 3:2 ). He with his brothers and their father were consecrated as priests of Jehovah (Exodus 28:1 ). He afterwards perished with Abihu for the sin of offering strange fire on the altar of burnt-offering (Leviticus 10:1,2 ; Numbers 3:4 ; 26:60 ).

  • The son and successor of Jeroboam, the king of Israel (1 Kings 14:20 ). While engaged with all Israel in laying siege to Gibbethon, a town of southern Dan (Joshua 19:44 ), a conspiracy broke out in his army, and he was slain by Baasha (1 Kings 15:25-28 ), after a reign of two years (B.C. 955-953). The assassination of Nadab was followed by that of his whole house, and thus this great Ephraimite family became extinct (1 Kings 15:29 ).

  • One of the sons of Shammai in the tribe of Judah (1 Chronicles 2:28,30 ).
