Abdon

Additional Links

Abdon (ăb'dŏn), servile. 1. A Levitical city in Asher. Joshua 21:30; 1 Chronicles 6:74. 2. The tenth judge of Israel, Judges 12:13; Judges 12:15, probably the same as Bedan, 1 Samuel 12:11, son of Hillel, of the tribe of Ephraim. He succeeded Elon, and judged Israel eight years. His rule was a peaceful one, as no oppression of Israel during his time is mentioned. The record that he bad 40 sons and 80 nephews (or rather grandsons) who rode on young asses, implies their high dignity and consequence: comp. Judges 5:9; Judges 10:3. Also two Benjamites. 1 Chronicles 8:23; 1 Chronicles 8:30; 1 Chronicles 9:36. 4. A son of Micah. 2 Chronicles 34:20. See Achbor.
