Darda

Additional Links

One of the wise men surpassed in wisdom by King Solomon (1 Kings 4:31). He is mentioned, with Ethan, Heman, and Chalcol, as a son of Mahol. In 1 Chronicles 2:6 he is called "Dara," the son of Zerah. Rabbinic fancy has identified Darda with "the generation of knowledge" ("dor de'") of the wilderness. "Kol Adam" refers to Adam; "Ethan" is Abraham; "Heman" is Moses; and "Chalcol" is Joseph (see Rashi on 1 Kings 5:11).
