  • The son of Hillel, a Pirathonite, the tenth judge of Israel (Judges 12:13-15 ). He is probably the Bedan of 1Samuel 12:11.
  • The first-born of Gibeon of the tribe of Benjamin (1Chronicles 8:30; 9:36).
  • The son of Micah, one of those whom Josiah sent to the prophetess Huldah to ascertain from her the meaning of the recently discovered book of the law (2Chronicles 34:20). He is called Achbor in 2Kings 22:12.
  • One of the "sons" of Shashak (1Chronicles 8:23).
This is the name also of a Levitical town of the Gershonites, in the tribe of Asher ( Joshua 21:30 ; 1Chronicles 6:74). The ruins of Abdeh, some 8 miles (14 kilometers) north-east of Accho, probably mark its site.
