zā´bud ( זבוּד , zābhūdh , "bestowed"):

(1) A son of Nathan (the prophet, probably) said in Kings to be chief minister to Solomon and also the king's friend (1 Kings 4:5; 1 Chronicles 2:36 ). The American Revised Version margin has "priest" for "chief minister." Benzinger (Kurz. Hand-Commentary , 18) holds that "this expression is a marginal gloss here," while Kittel (Handkomm ., 31) holds it to be genuine, though it is wanting in the Septuagint. Some suggest סכן , ṣōkhēn (see SHEBNA ) for כּהן , kōhēn . The expression "king's friend" (compare 2 Samuel 15:37; 2 Samuel 16:16 ) is, says Kittel, an old Canaanite title, found also in the Tell el -Amarna Letters .

(2) See ZACCUR , (4); PRIESTS AND LEVITES .
