Hastings' Dictionary of the Bible
DEDAN . A north Arabian people, according to Genesis 10:7 descended from Cush, and according to Genesis 25:3 from Abraham through Keturah. The combination is not difficult to understand when we remember the Arabian affiliations of the Cushites (cf. Isaiah 21:13 ). In Ezekiel 25:13 Dedan is placed almost within the Edomite territory, which it must have bordered on the southeast (cf. Jeremiah 25:23; Jeremiah 49:8 ). The Dedanites were among the Arabian peoples who sent their native wares to the markets of Tyre ( Ezekiel 27:20 ). In Ezekiel 27:15 read ‘Rodan’ (Rhodians) for ‘Dedan.’
