One of the wise men surpassed in wisdom by King Solomon (IKings 4:31). He is mentioned, with Ethan, Heman, and Chalcol, as a son of Mahol. In 1Chronicles 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 ).
