Abdi in the Bible Encyclopedia - ISBE
ab'-di (`abhdi, probably by abbreviation "servant of Yahweh"):
(1) A Levite, father of Kishi and grandfather of King David's
singer Ethan (1 Ch 6:44; compare 15:17). This makes Abdi a
contemporary of Saul the king. (2) A Levite, father of the
Kish who was in service at the beginning of the reign of
Hezekiah (2 Ch 29:12). Some mistakenly identify this Abdi with
the former. (3) A man who in Ezra's time had married a foreign
wife (Ezr 10:26). Not a Levite, but "of the sons of Elam."
