ha-do'-ram (hadhoram):

(1) Son of Joktan and apparently 6th in descent from Noah (Ge 10:27 parallel 1Ch 1:21).

(2) Son of Tou, king of Hamath, sent by his father with presents to King David (1Ch 18:10). In 2Sa 8:9,10, written probably incorrectly "Joram," "son of Toi."

(3) Rehoboam's superintendent of the forced labor department (2Ch 10:18), called Adoram 1Ki 12:18, a contraction of ADONIRAM (which see). He was sent by Rehoboam as messenger to Israel at the time of the revolt of the ten tribes and was stoned to death by them.

(noble honor).

(1.) The fifth son of Joktan (Genesis 10:27; 1 Chronicles 1:21). His settlements, unlike those of many of Joktan's sons, have not been identified.

(2.) Son of Tou or Toi king of Hamath; his father's ambassador to congratulate David on his victory over Hadarezer king of Zobah (1 Chronicles 18:10). (B.C. 1035)

(3.) The form assumed in Chronicles by the name of the intendant of taxes under David, Solomon and Rehoboam (2 Chronicles 10:18). In Kings the name is given in the longer form of ADONIRAM, but in Samuel (2 Samuel 20:24) as ADORAM. SEE [ADONIRAM], [HADORAM].
