ab´dı̄ עבדּי , (‛abhdı̄ , probably by abbreviation "servant of Yahweh"): (1) A L evite, father of Kishi and grandfather of King David's singer Ethan (1 Chronicles 6:44 ; compare 1 Chronicles 15:17 ). This makes Abdi a contemporary of Saul the king. (2) A L evite, father of the Kish who was in service at the beginning of the reign of Hezekiah (2 Chronicles 29:12 ). Some mistakenly identify this Abdi with the former. (3) A man who in Ezra's time had married a foreign wife (Ezra 10:26 ). Not a Levite, but "of the sons of Elam.»
