Eznite

Additional Links

Designation of Adino, one of David's chief captains (2 Samuel 23:8). But in 1 Chronicles 11:11 "Jashobeam an Hachmonite," for which 2 Samuel has Josheb-bas-shebeth, "that sat in the seat." (See JASHOBEAM.) Doubtless the words "the same (was) Adino the Eznite" are a corruption for the Hebrew "he lifted up his spear," which words appear in the parallel 1 Chronicles but not in 2 Samuel; compare verse 18. (2 Samuel 23:18.)
