(2.) A descendant of Tahath (7:21).

(3.) The son of Shemath. He conspired against Joash, king of Judah, and slew him (2 Chr. 24:25, 26). He is called also Jozachar (2 Kings 12:21).

Zabad [NAVE]

1. Son of Nathan, 1 Chr. 2:36, 37.
2. An Ephraimite, 1 Chr. 7:21.
3. One of David's valiant men, 1 Chr. 11:41.
4. An assassin of King Joash, 2 Chr. 24:26; 25:3, 4.
Called Jozachar in 2 Kin. 12:21.
5. Three Israelites who divorced their Gentile wives, Ezra 10:27, 33, 43.


  1. Son of Nathan son of Attai, son of Ahlai Sheshan?s daughter, (1 Chronicles 2:31-37) and hence called son of Ahlai. (1 Chronicles 11:41) (B.C. 1046.) He was one of David?s mighty men but none of his deeds have been recorded. The chief interest connected with him is in his genealogy, which is of considerable importance in a chronological point of view.
  2. An Ephraimite, if the text of (1 Chronicles 7:21) Isa correct.
  3. Son of Shimeath, an Ammonitess; an assassin who, with Jehozabad, slew King Joash, according to (2 Chronicles 24:26) (B.C. 840); but in (2 Kings 12:21) his name is written, probably more correctly, JOZACHAR.
  4. A layman of Israel, of the sons of Zattu, who put away his foreign wife at Ezra?s command. (Ezra 10:27) (B.C. 458.)
  5. One of the descendants of Hashum who had married a foreign wife after the captivity. (Ezra 10:33) (B.C. 458.)
  6. One of the sons of Nebo whose name is mentioned under the same circumstances as the two preceding. (Ezra 10:43)


ZABAD - za'-bad (zabhadh, perhaps a contraction for (1) zebhadhyah, "Yahweh has given," i.e. Zebadiah; or (2) zabhdi'el, "El (God) is my gift" (HPN, 222 f); Zabed(t), with many variants):

(1) A Jerahmeelite (1 Ch 2:36,37), son of Nathan (see NATHAN, IV).

(2) An Ephraimite, son of Tahath (1 Ch 7:21).

(3) Son of Ahlai (1 Ch 11:41) and one of David's mighty men (the name is wanting in 2 Sam 23:24-29).

(4) Son of Shimeath the Ammonitess (2 Ch 26); he was one of the murderers of King Joash of Judah; called "Jozacar" in 2 Ki 12:21 (Hebrew verse 22). Perhaps the name in Chronicles should be Zacar (zakhar),

(5) Name of three men who had married foreign wives: (a) son of Zattu (Ezr 10:27)= "Sabathus" of 1 Esdras 9:28; (b) son of Hashum (Ezr 10:33) = "Sabanneus" of 1 Esdras 9:33; (c) son of Nebo (Ezr 10:43) = "Zabadeas" of 1 Esdras 9:35.
