1. 1 Kings 4:14.

2. 1 Chronicles 6:21. ADAIAH in 1 Chronicles 6:41; Ezra 10:39.

3. 1 Chronicles 27:21.

4. Yedoi or Yedo. A "seer" whose "visions against Jeroboam the son of Nebat" contained notices of Solomon's life (2 Chronicles 9:29). His work "concerning genealogies" recorded "acts of Rehoboam" (2 Chronicles 12:15). His "story" or commentary recorded the "acts, ways, and sayings of Abijah" (2 Chronicles 13:22). His writings doubtless are embodied in Chronicles, so far as the Spirit of God saw them suited to form part of the inspired word. Tradition identifies him with the "man of God" who denounced Jeroboam's calf altar at Bethel (1 Kings 13), which 2 Chronicles 9:29 favors; also with Oded which resembles his name (2 Chronicles 15:1).

5. Grandfather of Zechariah (Zechariah 1:1; Zechariah 1:7; Ezra 5:1; Ezra 6:14, "son" here means grandson). Returned from Babylon with Zerubbabel (Nehemiah 12:4; Nehemiah 12:12; Nehemiah 12:16).

6. Chief of those who met at Casiphia to join in the second caravan returning under Ezra (Ezra 8:17; Ezra 8:20) in the reign of Artaxerxes Longimanus, 458 B.C. Iddo was one of the 220 Nethinims who joined in the return.
