A son of David (1 Chronicles 14:7), who in 2 Samuel 5:16 and 1 Chronicles 3:8 is called "Eliada." This is due to an intentional change by the scribe, to whom the name "Baal" was hateful, and who therefore substituted "El" in its place. For other instances of disguising the name "Baal," see BOSHETH.
