ADONIRAM, ADORAM . The latter name occurs 2Sa 20:24 , 1 Kings 12:18 , and is probably a corruption of Adoniram. Adoniram superintended the levies employed in the public works during the reigns of David, Solomon, and Rehoboam. He was stoned to death by the rebellious Israelites when sent to them by Rehoboam ( 1 Kings 12:18 ).
