        liberal, generous. (1.) The eldest of Aaron's four sons (Ex.
        6:23; Num. 3:2). He with his brothers and their father were
        consecrated as priests of Jehovah (Ex. 28:1). He afterwards
        perished with Abihu for the sin of offering strange fire on the
        altar of burnt-offering (Lev. 10:1,2; Num. 3:4; 26:60).
        (2.) The son and successor of Jeroboam, the king of Israel (1
        Kings 14:20). While engaged with all Israel in laying siege to
        Gibbethon, a town of southern Dan (Josh. 19:44), a conspiracy
        broke out in his army, and he was slain by Baasha (1 Kings
        15:25-28), after a reign of two years (B.C. 955-953). The
        assassination of Nadab was followed by that of his whole house,
        and thus this great Ephraimite family became extinct (1 Kings
        (3.) One of the sons of Shammai in the tribe of Judah (1 Chr.
        2:28, 30).
