O´bed-E´dom (serving Edom), a Levite in whose premises, and under whose care, the ark was deposited, when the death of Uzzah caused David to apprehend danger in taking it farther. It remained here three months, during which the family of Obed-edom so signally prospered, that the king was encouraged to resume his first intention, which he then happily carried into effect (). We learn from , that Obed-Edom's connection with the ark did not then terminate, he and his brethren having charge of the doors of the sanctuary (; ).
