(Hebrews Meydad', מֵידָד, low; Sept. Μωδάδ), a person mentioned in connection with Eidad, as two of the seventy elders who were nominated to assist Moses in the government of the people, but who remained in the camp, probably as modestly deeming themselves unfit for the office, when the others presented themselves at the tabernacle. The divine Spirit, however, rested on them even there, "and they prophesied in the camp" (Numbers 11:24-29). The Targum of Jonathan alleges that these two men were brothers of Moses and Aaron by the mother's side, being sons of Jochebed and Elizaphan. BC. 1657. (See ELDAD).
