Smith's Bible Dictionary
Hadad

(mighty), originally the indigenous appellation of the sun among the Syrians, and thence transferred to the king as the highest of earthly authorities. The title appears to have been an official one, like Pharaoh. It is found occasionally in the altered form Hadar. (Genesis 25:15; 36:39) compared with 1Chr 1:30,50

  1. Son of Ishmael. (Genesis 25:15; 1 Chronicles 1:30)
  2. A king of Edom who gained an important victory over the Midianites on the field of Moab. (Genesis 36:35; 1 Chronicles 1:46)
  3. Also a king of Edom, with Pau for his capital. (1 Chronicles 1:50)
  4. A member of the royal house Or Edom. (1 Kings 11:14) ff. In his childhood he escaped the massacre under Joab, and fled with a band of followers into Egypt. Pharaoh, the predecessor of Solomon's father-in-law, treated him kindly, and gave him his sister-in-law in marriage. After David's death Hadad resolved to attempt the recovery of his dominion. He left Egypt and returned to his own country.
ATS Bible Dictionary
Hadad

1. An Idumean prince, who defeated the Midianites in the plains of Moab, Genesis 36:35 1 Chronicles 1:16.

2. A second prince of Edom, mentioned in 1 Chronicles 1:51.

3. Another Edomite of the royal family, who fled to Egypt while young, upon David's conquest of Edom, 2 Samuel 8:14; was well received, and married the queen's sister. After the death of David and Joab, he returned to Edom and made an ineffectual effort to throw off the yoke of Solomon, 1 Kings 11:14-22 2 Chronicles 8:17.

International Standard Bible Encyclopedia
HADAD

ha'-dad:

(1) (chadhadh, "sharpness"): One of the twelve sons of Ishmael (Genesis 25:15, where the King James Version, following a mistake in Hebrew text, has "Hadar"; but "Hadad" is found in parallel passage 1 Chronicles 1:30; the Revised Version (British and American) reads "Hadad" in both places).

(2) (hadhadh): A king of Edom, son of Bedad (Genesis 36:35, 36 parallel 1 Chronicles 1:46, 47), "who smote Midian in the field of Moab," and whose "city was Avith."

(3) Another king of Edom, written "Hadar" in Genesis 36:39 by a copyist's mistake, but "Hadad" in the parallel passage 1 Chronicles 1:50, 51. His city was Pau or Palestine.

(4) A member of the royal family of Edom in David's time, who as a child escaped Joab's slaughter of the Edomites, and fled to Egypt. On David's death he returned to Edom, where he made trouble for Solomon by stirring up the Edomites against the rule of Israel (1 Kings 11:14-22, 25).

(5) The supreme god of Syria, whose name is found in Scripture in the names of Syrian kings, Benhadad, Hadadezer. The god Hadad (= perhaps, "maker of loud noise") is mentioned in Assyrian inscriptions, and called on the monolith of Shalmaneser "the god of Aleppo." In the Assyrian inscriptions he is identified with the air-god Rammon or Rimmon. The union of the two names in Zechariah 12:11 suggests this identity, though the reference is uncertain, some regarding Hadadrimmon as the name of a place, others as the name of the god-"Hadad (is) Rimmon." The name "Hadad" is found in various other forms: Adad, Dadu, and Dadda. See A. H. Sayce in HDB under the word "Hadad."
