Hawker's Poor Man's Concordance And Dictionary
MEDAD and ELDAD
â€”we read of these men on whom the Spirit of the Lord came, Numbers 11:26-27. If the former name be derived from Madad, it means he that measures; but more probably it is a compound word of Me, watersâ€”and Duad, love. Eldad is a compound also of El, God; and Dod, love. A reference to the Scripture will give their history, which is but short.
