(nay' dab) Personal name meaning, “spontaneous.” 1. Aaron's eldest son; one of the first priests in Israel (Exodus 28:1 ) along with his brother Abihu. He participated in the covenant ceremony when the agreement was presented to the people (Exodus 24:1 ). He and Abihu were consumed by a fire from the Lord because they offered “strange fire” to God. The exact nature of their sin is unknown. Possibly they did not use fire from the recognized altar, perhaps offering to foreign gods (Numbers 3:4 ).

2. King of Israel about 903-902 B.C. Nadab succeeded his father Jeroboam I, founder and first king of northern Israel (1 Kings 14:20-15:31 ). He was assassinated by Baasha in a bloody coup. 3. A son of Shanamai (1Chronicles 2:28,1 Chronicles 2:30 ). 4 . son of Jeiel and Maacah (1 Chronicles 8:30 ; 1 Chronicles 9:35-36 NIV).
