ZABAD

za'-bad (zabhadh, perhaps a contraction for (1) zebhadhyah, "Yahweh has given," i.e. Zebadiah; or (2) zabhdi'el, "El (God) is my gift" (HPN, 222 f); Zabed(t), with many variants):
(1) A Jerahmeelite (1 Ch 2:36,37), son of Nathan (see NATHAN, IV).
(2) An Ephraimite, son of Tahath (1 Ch 7:21).
(3) Son of Ahlai (1 Ch 11:41) and one of David's mighty men (the name is wanting in 2 Sam 23:24-29).
(4) Son of Shimeath the Ammonitess (2 Ch 26); he was one of the murderers of King Joash of Judah; called "Jozacar" in 2 Ki 12:21 (Hebrew verse 22). Perhaps the name in Chronicles should be Zacar (zakhar),
(5) Name of three men who had married foreign wives: (a) son of Zattu (Ezr 10:27)= "Sabathus" of 1 Esdras 9:28; (b) son of Hashum (Ezr 10:33) = "Sabanneus" of 1 Esdras 9:33; (c) son of Nebo (Ezr 10:43) = "Zabadeas" of 1 Esdras 9:35.
