according to the parallel list in Ne 7:20 (B.C. 536.) They
joined with Nehemiah in a covenant to separate themselves from

Adin in the Bible Encyclopedia - ISBE
a'-din (`adhin, "adorned"): The name of a family, "the sons
of Adin" (Ezr 2:15; 8:6; Neh 7:20; 10:16; 1 Esdras 5:14;
8:32), mentioned among the returning exiles. The list in Ezr
2 is placed in the midst of the narrative concerning
Zerubbabel, but its title and Its contents show that it also
includes the later Jewish immigrants into Israel. The list
in Neh 7 is a duplicate of that in Ezr, but with variations;
most of the variations are naturally accounted for by
supposing that one copy was made later than the other and
was brought up to date. In Ezr and 1 Esdras the number of
the sons of Adin is said to be 454; in Neh it is 655. The 50
males, led by Ebed the son of Jonathan, who came with Ezr,
may or may not have been included in the numbers just
mentioned. Among the names of those who sealed the covenant
along with Neh are 44 that are placed under the caption "the
chiefs of the people" (Neh 10:14-26), and nearly half of
these are the family names of the list in Ezr 2 and Neh 7.
It is natural to infer that in these cases a family sealed
the covenant collectively through some representative. In
that case the Adin here mentioned is the same that is
mentioned in the other places.
