    Hadoram in Easton's Bible Dictionary is exalted. (1.) The son of Tou, king of Hamath, sent by his father to congratulate David on his victory over Hadarezer, king of Syria (1 Chr. 18:10; called Joram 2 Sam. 8:10). (2.) The fifth son of Joktan, the founder of an Arab tribe (Gen. 10:27; 1 Chr. 1:21). (3.) One who was "over the tribute;" i.e., "over the levy." He was stoned by the Israelites after they had revolted from Rehoboam (2 Chr. 10:18). Called also Adoram (2 Sam. 20:24) and Adoniram (1 Kings 4:6).

    Hadoram in Fausset's Bible Dictionary 1. Son of Tou or Toi, king of Hamath; sent to congratulate David on his victory over Hadarezer (1 Chronicles 28:10), bearing costly presents in gold, silver, and brass (antiques according to Josephus). More likely to be the true name than "Jeram," which contains the name of Jehovah (2 Samuel 8:10). 2. The contracted form of Adoniram (2 Samuel 20:24; 1 Kings 4:6; 1 Kings 12:18). Over the tribute, under David, Solomon, and Rehoboam. Stoned to death when sent as one of the old or moderate party, to appease the sedition; the choice of the superintendent of taxes for the purpose was consistent with the general lack of tact in Rehoboam.

    Hadoram in Smiths Bible Dictionary (noble honor). 1. The fifth son of Joktan. Ge 10:27; 1Ch 1:21 His settlements, unlike those of many of Joktan's sons, have not been identified. 2. Son of Tou or Toi king of Hamath; his father's ambassador to congratulate David on his victory over Hadarezer king of Zobah. 1Ch 18:10 (B.C. 1035.) 3. The form assumed in Chronicles by the name of the intendant of taxes under David, Solomon and Rehoboam. 2Ch 10:18 In Kings the name is given in the longer form of ADONIRAM, but in Samuel, 2Sa 20:24 as ADORAM.

    Hadoram in the Bible Encyclopedia - ISBE ha-do'-ram (hadhoram): (1) Son of Joktan and apparently 6th in descent from Noah (Gen 10:27 parallel 1 Ch 1:21). (2) Son of Tou, king of Hamath, sent by his father with presents to King David (1 Ch 18:10). In 2 Sam 8:9,10, written probably incorrectly "Joram," "son of Toi." (3) Rehoboam's superintendent of the forced labor department (2 Ch 10:18), called Adoram 1 Ki 12:18, a contraction of ADONIRAM (which see). He was sent by Rehoboam as messenger to Israel at the time of the revolt of the ten tribes and was stoned to death by them. George Rice Hovey

    Hadoram in Wikipedia is the son of Joktan mentioned in the Book of Genesis of the Hebrew Bible. Noah had three sons: Shem, Ham, and Japheth. One of Shem's sons was Arpachshad. One of Arpachshad's sons was Eber. Eber had two sons: Peleg and Joktan. Joktan had many sons including Hadoram as the Book of Genesis (10:26-30) states: Yoktan (Joktan) was the father of Almodad, Shelef, Chatzarmaveth, Yerach, Hadoram, Uzal, Diklah, Obhal, Abhimael, Sh'bha, Ophir, Havilah, and Yovav. All these were the sons of Yoktan. Their settlements extended from Meshah toward Sepher, the eastern mountain. [1] Accodirng to Rabbi Aryeh Kaplan's footnotes: "Hadarom: Some interpret this as denoting 'the south.' This was a fortress to the south of (Yemen's) Sanaa (Kesseth HaSofer). See 1 Chronicles 18:10; Zechariah 12:11."

    Hadoram Scripture - 1 Chronicles 18:10 He sent Hadoram his son to king David, to enquire of his welfare, and to congratulate him, because he had fought against Hadarezer, and smitten him; (for Hadarezer had war with Tou;) and [with him] all manner of vessels of gold and silver and brass.

    Hadoram Scripture - 2 Chronicles 10:18 Then king Rehoboam sent Hadoram that [was] over the tribute; and the children of Israel stoned him with stones, that he died. But king Rehoboam made speed to get him up to [his] chariot, to flee to Jerusalem.
