OBED-EDOM . 1. A Philistine, a native of Gath, who lived in or near Jerusalem. In his house David deposited the ark after the death of Uzzah, and here it remained three months, bringing a blessing by its presence ( 2 Samuel 6:10 f., 1 Chronicles 13:14 ). It is in all probability the same O. that appears as 2. The eponym of a family of door-keepers in the Temple ( 1 Chronicles 15:18 ; 1 Chronicles 15:24 ; 1 Chronicles 16:38 ; 1Ch 26:4 ; 1 Chronicles 26:8 ; 1 Chronicles 26:15 , 2 Chronicles 25:24 ). 3. The eponym of a post-exilic family of singers ( 1 Chronicles 15:21 ; 1 Chronicles 16:5 ).
