Treasury of Scripture

Hadoram

1 Kings 5:14

Adoniram

(18) Hadoram.--Kings, "Adoram." LXX. (Vat.), Adoniram. (Comp. 1Kings 4:6.)

The tribute.--The levy (ha-mas).

The children of Israel.--Kings, "all Israel."

Made speed.--Had made speed.

His chariot.--The (royal) chariot.

Verse 18. - Hadoram that was over the tribute ... stoned him... Rehoboam made speed... to flee. Hadoram was perhaps the same as Adoniram, son of Abda (1 Kings 4:6; 1 Kings 5:14), but on the arbitrament of age this is less likely, and certainly it is very unlikely that he was one with Hadoram of 2 Samuel 20:24. Rehoboam must be supposed to have sent Hadoram either to make some "tribute" summons, or try some arrangement respecting it, or respecting conciliatory steps. The reception he met warns Rehoboam to make the quickest escape possible, and no doubt opens his eyes fully to what he has done. It was the remanet of his delusive self-confidence to send this collector of taxes to those who had begged some remission of taxation.
