Zabad

Additional Links

Za'bad. (gift).

1. Son of Nathan, son of Attai, son of Ahlai, Sheshan's daughter, 1 Chronicles 2:31-37, and hence, called son of Ahlai. 1 Chronicles 11:41. (B.C. 1046). He was one of David's mighty men, but none of his deeds have been recorded. The chief interest connected with him is in his genealogy, which is of considerable importance, in a chronological point of view.

2. An Ephraimite, if the text of 1 Chronicles 7:21 is correct.

3. Son of Shimeath, an Ammonitess; an assassin who, with Jehozabad, slew King Joash, according to 2 Chronicles 24:26. (B.C. 840); but in 2 Kings 12:21, his name is written, probably more correctly, as Jozachar.

4. A layman of Israel, of the sons of Zattu, who put away his foreign wife at Ezra's command. Ezra 10:27. (B.C. 458).

5. One of the descendants of Hashum who had married a foreign wife after the captivity. Ezra 10:33. (B.C. 458).

6. One of the sons of Nebo, whose name is mentioned under the same circumstances as Zabad, 4 and Zabad, 5. Ezra 10:43.
