Zabud in Smiths Bible Dictionary
(given), son of Nathan, 1Ki 4:5 is described as a priest
(Authorized Version "principal officer"), and as holding at
the court of Solomon the confidential post of "king's friend,"
which had been occupied by Hushai the Archite during the reign

Zabud in the Bible Encyclopedia - ISBE
za'-bud (zabhudh, "bestowed"):
(1) A son of Nathan (the prophet, probably) said in Kings to
be chief minister to Solomon and also the king's friend (1 Ki
4:5; 1 Ch 2:36). The American Revised Version margin has
"priest" for "chief minister." Benzinger (Kurz. Hand-
Commentary, 18) holds that "this expression is a marginal
gloss here," while Kittel (Handkomm., 31) holds it to be
genuine, though it is wanting in the Septuagint. Some suggest
cokhen (see SHEBNA) for kohen. The expression "king's friend"
(compare 2 Sam 15:37; 16:16) is, says Kittel, an old Canaanite
title, found also in the Tell el-Amarna Letters.
