HADADEZER . The name of a king of Zobah (wh. see) in the time of David, 2 Samuel 8:3 ff., 1 Kings 11:23 . In 1 Chronicles 18:3 ff. the same king is called less correctly Hadarezer . He was at the head of the combination of the Aramæans of Northern Palestine against David, was repeatedly defeated, and finally made tributary. The word means ‘Adad is (my) helper’ (cf. Heb. Eliezer, Ebenezer, Azariah , etc.). It is found on the Black Obelisk of the Assyrian Shalmaneser ii. under the more Aramaic form Adadidri , as the equivalent of Benhadad of Damascus, who led the great combination, including Ahab of Israel, against the Assyrians in b.c. 854.
