Adod, brave(?), the name of a Syrian god. (1.) An Edomite king who defeated the Midianites (Gen. 36:35; 1 Chr. 1:46). (2.) Another Edomite king (1 Chr. 1:50, 51), called also Hadar (Gen. 36:39; 1 Chr. 1:51). (3.) One of "the king's seed in Edom." He fled into Egypt, where he married the sister of Pharaoh's wife (1 Kings 11:14-22). He became one of Solomon's adversaries. Hadad, sharp, (a different name in Hebrew from the preceding), one of the sons of Ishmael (1 Chr. 1:30). Called also Hadar (Gen. 25:15).
There can be little doubt that the partnership of hadad with Anu was a late one.
And this was the calamity which the Hebrews suffered by hadad.
T was my purpose, returning, to have drawn upon hadad's beast the notice of the Queen.
I cried aloud to hadad, who was urging his animal to its utmost speed.
There one of the first objects that greeted me, was hadad and the mother of my Ishmael.
I then looked around for hadad and the woman, but they were no where to be seen.
hadad (or Adad) was a relation of the Iduman king whom David had conquered.
While here, hadad related what befel him after our separation.
We would here pay a tribute to our countryman Hillhouse, whose hadad, read at a very early age, we remember with much delight.
I at first went without hadad, that I might observe with the more leisure.
