Hadoram

Additional Links
(huh doh' ram) Personal and tribal name perhaps meaning, “Hadad (god) is exalted.”

1. Arabic tribe descended from Shem through Eber and thus distantly related to Hebrews according to the Table of Nations (Genesis 10:27 ). They lived in southern Arabia. 2. Son of Tou, city-state ruler in Hamath of Syria. Hadoram brought tribute to David after David had defeated Hadad-ezer of Zobah (1 Chronicles 18:10 ). See Hadad-ezer .

3. “Taskmaster over the forced labor” (2 Chronicles 10:18 NRSV) under Rehoboam, Solomon's son and successor as king of Judah. Rehoboam sent Hadoram to collect tribute from the Northern Kingdom immediately after they rebelled and refused to acknowledge Rehoboam as king. The children of Israel killed Hadoram. Thus they showed their contempt for Rehoboam's forced labor policies and made final the division between Israel and Judah, beginning the period of the divided monarchy.
