ZABAD (‘he hath given’ or ‘a gift’). Many names are derived from this root, both in OT and in Palmyrene and Nabatæan inscriptions. About 36 are reckoned in OT 23 in Chron., and nearly all in post-exilic books. In Genesis 30:20 a it is the first explanation of ‘Zebulun.’ The fuller form is Zabdiel or Zebadiah (‘my gift is J″ [Note: Jahweh.] ’). 1. 1 Chronicles 2:36-37 , a descendant of Judah, perhaps the same as the Zabud of 1 Kings 4:6 . 1 Kings 4:2 . 1 Chronicles 7:21 , an Ephraimite; if the text is correct, this passage and 1 Indicate that there was some uncertainty as to the reckoning of the clan probably intended by the name. 3. 1 Chronicles 11:41 , one of David’s valiant men, perhaps = 1. 4. 2 Chronicles 24:26 , one of the murderers of Joash = Jozacar ( 2 Kings 12:21 ); we should perhaps read Zacar here. 5 . 6 . 7 . Laymen who married ‘strange’ wives, Ezra 10:27; Ezra 10:33; Ezra 10:43 (cf. Esther 9:28 Esther 9:28 [ Sabathus ], 33 [ Sabanneus ], 35 [ Zabadeas ]).
