Jehonadab

Easton’s Bible Dictionary

Jehonadab : Jehovah is liberal; or, whom Jehovah impels.

  1. A son of Shimeah, and nephew of David. It was he who gave the fatal wicked advice to Amnon, the heir to the throne (2 Samuel 13:3-6). He was very "subtil," but unprincipled.
  2. A son of Rechab, the founder of a tribe who bound themselves by a vow to abstain from wine (Jeremiah 35:6-19). There were different settlements of Rechabites (Judges 1:16; 4:11; 1 Chronicles 2:55). (See RECHABITE.) His interview and alliance with Jehu are mentioned in 2 Kings 10:15-23. He went with Jehu in his chariot to Samaria.
