Easton's Bible Dictionary

Jadon:

judge, a Meronothite who assisted in rebuilding the walls of Jerusalem (Neh 3:7).

International Standard Bible Encyclopaedia

Jadon:

ja'-don (yadhon, perhaps "he will judge" or "plead"): One who helped to rebuild the wall of Jerusalem in company with the men of Gibeon and of Mizpah (Ne 3:7). He is called the "Meronothite," and another Meronothite is referred to in 1Ch 27:30, but there is no mention of a place Meronoth. Jadon is the name given by Josephus (Ant., VIII, viii, 5; ix, 1) to "the man of God" from Judah who confronted Jeroboam as he burned incense at the altar in Bethel, and who was afterward deceived by the lie of the old prophet (1Ki 13). Josephus may probably have meant Iddo the seer, whose visions concerning Jeroboam (2Ch 9:29) led to his being identified in Jewish tradition with "the man of God", from Judah.

Written by James Crichton

Smith's Bible Dictionary

Jadon:

(judge) the Meronothite, who assisted to repair the wall of Jerusalem (Nehemiah 3:7). (B.C. 446)
