Hadad:

Adod, brave(?), the name of a Syrian god. (1.) An Edomite king who defeated the Midianites (Gen 36:35; 1Ch 1:46).

(2.) Another Edomite king (1Ch 1:50,51), called also Hadar (Gen 36:39; 1Ch 1:51).

(3.) One of "the king's seed in Edom." He fled into Egypt, where he married the sister of Pharaoh's wife (1Ki 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 (1Ch 1:30). Called also Hadar (Gen 25:15).

Hadad:

joy; noise; clamor

International Standard Bible Encyclopaedia

Hadad:

ha'-dad:

(1) (chadhadh, "sharpness"): One of the twelve sons of Ishmael (Ge 25:15, where the King James Version, following a mistake in Hebrew text, has "Hadar"; but "Hadad" is found in parallel passage 1Ch 1:30; the Revised Version (British and American) reads "Hadad" in both places).

(2) (hadhadh): A king of Edom, son of Bedad (Ge 36:35,36 parallel 1Ch 1:46,47), "who smote Midian in the field of Moab," and whose "city was Avith."

(3) Another king of Edom, written "Hadar" in Ge 36:39 by a copyist's mistake, but "Hadad" in the parallel passage 1Ch 1:50,51. His city was Pau or Palestine.

(4) A member of the royal family of Edom in David's time, who as a child escaped Joab's slaughter of the Edomites, and fled to Egypt. On David's death he returned to Edom, where he made trouble for Solomon by stirring up the Edomites against the rule of Israel (1Ki 11:14-22,25).

(5) The supreme god of Syria, whose name is found in Scripture in the names of Syrian kings, Benhadad, Hadadezer. The god Hadad (= perhaps, "maker of loud noise") is mentioned in Assyrian inscriptions, and called on the monolith of Shalmaneser "the god of Aleppo." In the Assyrian inscriptions he is identified with the air-god Rammon or Rimmon. The union of the two names in Zec 12:11 suggests this identity, though the reference is uncertain, some regarding Hadadrimmon as the name of a place, others as the name of the god-"Hadad (is) Rimmon." The name "Hadad" is found in various other forms: Adad, Dadu, and Dadda. See A. H. Sayce in HDB under the word "Hadad."

Written by George Rice Hovey

Smith's Bible Dictionary

Hadad:

(mighty) originally the indigenous appellation of the sun among the Syrians, and thence transferred to the king as the highest of earthly authorities. The title appears to have been an official one, like Pharaoh. It is found occasionally in the altered form Hadar (Genesis 25:15; 36:39 compared with 1 Chronicles 1:30, 50).

(1.) Son of Ishmael (Genesis 25:15; 1 Chronicles 1:30).

(2.) A king of Edom who gained an important victory over the Midianites on the field of Moab (Genesis 36:35; 1 Chronicles 1:46).

(3.) Also a king of Edom, with Pau for his capital (1 Chronicles 1:50).

(4.) A member of the royal house Or Edom (1 Kings 11:14) ff. In his childhood he escaped the massacre under Joab, and fled with a band of followers into Egypt. Pharaoh, the predecessor of Solomon's father‐in‐law, treated him kindly, and gave him his sister‐in‐law in marriage. After David's death Hadad resolved to attempt the recovery of his dominion. He left Egypt and returned to his own country.
