(hay' dahr) Apparently a copyist's change of the name Hadad, a Syrian god, in Genesis 36:39 and in some manuscripts of Genesis 25:15 . Translations differ on their readings, KJV reading Hadar in both cases. NIV, TEV read Hadad in both cases, while NAS, REB, NRSV retain Hadar in Genesis 36:39 but Hadad in Genesis 25:15 . See 1 Chronicles 1:30 , 1 Chronicles 1:50-51 ). A reverent copyist may not have wanted to introduce the name of the pagan god into Genesis.
