Old Testament Hebrew Lexical Dictionary
Strong's #5719 - עָדִין
Jeff Benner, Ancient Hebrew Research Center Used by permission of the author.
עָדִין adj. soft, delicate, Isaiah 47:8. The words are very difficult, and perhaps corrupted in 2 Samuel 23:8, הוּא עֲדִינוֹ הָעֶצְנוֹ (כתיב) for which the author of the Chronicles, 1 Chronicles 11:11, has given, הוּא עוֹרֵר אֶת חֲנִיתוֹ “he lifted up his spear.” Vulg. renders them ipse est quasi tenerrimus ligni vermiculus. Jo. Simonis, percussio ejus hastâ suâ (fuit) in octigentos etc.; comparing عدن Conj. II. to smite with a pointed weapon, see below עֵצֶן. I prefer rendering עָדִין by vibration (das Schwingen, Schwenken der Lanze); from the root עָדַן to be soft, pliant (fchwank).
(2) [Adin] pr.n. m. Ezra 2:15; Nehemiah 7:20.
