1913 Hadowram had-o-rawm'

or Hadoram {had-o-rawm'}; probably of foreign derivation;
Hadoram, a son of Joktan, and the tribe descended from him:-
Hadoram.

Hadoram [EBD]

is exalted. (1.) The son of Tou, king of Hamath, sent by his father to congratulate David on his victory over Hadarezer, king of Syria (1 Chr. 18:10; called Joram 2 Sam. 8:10).

(2.) The fifth son of Joktan, the founder of an Arab tribe (Gen. 10:27; 1 Chr. 1:21).

(3.) One who was "over the tribute;" i.e., "over the levy." He was stoned by the Israelites after they had revolted from Rehoboam (2 Chr. 10:18). Called also Adoram (2 Sam. 20:24) and Adoniram (1 Kings 4:6).

Hadoram [NAVE]

HADORAM
1. Descendant of Shem, Gen. 10:27; 1 Chr. 1:21.
2. Son of Ton, or Toi, 1 Chr. 18:10.
Called Joram, 2 Sam. 8:10.
3. Chief officer of the tribute under Rehoboam, 2 Chr. 10:18.
Probably identical with Adoniram of 1 Kin. 4:6; 5:14; and Adoram of 2 Sam. 20:24.

HADORAM [SMITH]

(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.

HADORAM [ISBE]

HADORAM - ha-do'-ram (hadhoram):

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

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

(3) Rehoboam's superintendent of the forced labor department (2 Ch 10:18), called Adoram 1 Ki 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.
