    Oded in Easton's Bible Dictionary restoring, or setting up. (1.) Father of the prophet Azariah (2 Chr. 15:1, 8). (2.) A prophet in the time of Ahaz and Pekah (2 Chr. 28:9-15).

    Oded in Fausset's Bible Dictionary 1. Father of Azariah the prophet under Asa (2 Chronicles 15:1); in 2 Chronicles 15:8 "of Oded the prophet" must be an interpolation, for "the prophecy" in the Hebrew is absolute, not in the construct state as it would necessarily be if the words were genuine; besides not Oded but Azariah was "the prophet," the Alexandrinus manuscript and Vulgate read in 2 Chronicles 15:8 "Azariah son of Oded." 2. A prophet of Samaria under Pekah. When the Israelites led away 200,000 Jews captive to Samaria, "Oded went out before the host and said, Because Jehovah was angry with Judah, He hath delivered them into your hands, and ye have slain them in a rage that reacheth up into heaven (calling for divine vengeance on yourselves); and now ye purpose to keep the children of Judah bondmen ... but are there not with you, even with you, sins against Jehovah? (compare Matthew 7:1-5; James 2:13). Now ... deliver the captives again," etc. It was a bold venture so to reprove to the face men flushed with triumph. But God often blesses an effort more than one durst expect. Certain chiefs of Ephraim, touched by his appeal, said, "ye shall not bring in the captives here," etc. Then they took and clothed the naked, and shod them, and gave them to eat and drink, and anointed them (oil is refreshing and herding in the sultry East), and carried all the feeble upon donkeys(compare Luke 10:34) and brought them to Jericho (Romans 12:20)

    Oded in Smiths Bible Dictionary (restoring). 1. The father of Azariah the prophet, in the reign of Asa. 2Ch 15:1 (B.C. before 953.) 2. A prophet of Jehovah in Samaria, at the time of Pekah's invasion of Judah. 2Ch 28:9 (B.C. 739.)

    Oded in the Bible Encyclopedia - ISBE o'-ded (`owdhedh (2 Ch 15), `odhedh (elsewhere), `odhedh, "restorer"): (1) According to 2 Ch 15:1, he was the father of Azariah who prophesied in the reign of Asa of Judah (c 918-877), but 15:8 makes Oded himself the prophet. The two verses should agree, so we should probably read in 15:8, "the prophecy of Azariah, the son of Oded, the prophet," or else "the prophecy of Azariah the prophet." See AZARIAH. (2) A prophet of Samaria (2 Ch 28:9) who lived in the reigns of Pekah, king of the Northern Kingdom, and Ahaz, king of Judah. According to 2 Ch 28, Oded protested against the enslavement of the captives which Pekah had brought from Judah and Jerusalem on his return from the Syro-Ephraimitic attack on the Southern Kingdom (735 BC). In this protest he was joined by some of the chiefs of Ephraim, and the captives were well treated. After those who were naked (i.e. those who had scanty clothing; compare the meaning of the word "naked" in Mk 14:51) had been supplied with clothing from the spoil, and the bruised anointed with oil, the prisoners were escorted to Jericho. The narrative of 2 Ch 28 as a whole does not agree with that of 2 Ki 15:37; 16:5 f, where the allied armies of Rezin of Damascus and Pekah besieged Jerusalem, but failed to capture it (compare Isa 7:1-17; 8:5-8a). As Curtis points out (Chronicles, 459, where he compares Ex 21:2 ff; Lev 25:29- 43; Dt 15:12-18), wholesale enslavement of their fellow- countrymen was not allowed to the Hebrews, and this fact the passage illustrates. It seems to be a fulfillment in spirit of Isa 61:1-2, a portion which our Lord read in the synagogue at Nazareth (Lk 4:16-20). David Francis Roberts
