Adoniram

Chief over the tribute in the days of Solomon. 1 Kings 4:6; 1 Kings 5:14 . In David's time ADORAM was over the tribute, 2 Samuel 20:24 , and in the days of Rehoboam also a person of this name was over the tribute, 1 Kings 12:18 , which Gesenius and others take to be a contracted form of Adoniram, and to refer to the same person. Apparently the Adoram mentioned in 1 Kings 12:18 is called HADORAM in 2 Chronicles 10:18 . All Israel stoned him to death at the revolt of the ten tribes. If Adoniram held office from David to Rehoboam it would embrace a long period; still it may be the same throughout, or father and son.
