Smith's Bible Dictionary
Dedan

(low country).

  1. The name of a son of Raamah, son of Cush. (Genesis 10:7; 1 Chronicles 1:9)
  2. A son of Jokshan, son of Keturah. (Genesis 25:3; 1 Chronicles 1:32) (B.C. after 1988.)
ATS Bible Dictionary
Dedan

1. The grandson of Cush, Genesis 10:7; and

2. The son of Jokshan, Abraham's son by Keturah, Genesis 25:3. Both were founders of tribes frequently named in Scripture. The descendants of the Cushite Dedan are supposed to have settled in southern Arabia, near the Persian gulf, in which there is an island called by the Arabs Dedan lived in the neighborhood of Idumaea, Jeremiah 49:8. It is not clear, in all cases where the name occurs, which of the tribes is intended. It was probably the Cushite tribe, which was employed in trade. The "travelling companies" of Dedan are mentioned by Isaiah 21:13. They are also named with the merchants of Tarshish by Ezekiel 38:13, and were celebrated on account of their trade with the Phoenicians.

Easton's Bible Dictionary
Low ground.

(1.) A son of Raamah (Genesis 10:7). His descendants are mentioned in Isaiah 21:13, and Ezek. 27:15. They probably settled among the sons of Cush, on the north-west coast of the Persian Gulf.

(2.) A son of Jokshan, Abraham's son by Keturah (1 Chronicles 1:32). His descendants settled on the Syrian borders about the territory of Edom. They probably led a pastoral life.

International Standard Bible Encyclopedia
DEDAN; DEDANITES

de'-dan, de'dan-its (the King James Version Dedanim, ded'-a-nim; dedhan, "low," dedhanim): An Arabian people named in Genesis 10:7 as descended from Cush; in Genesis 25:3 as descended from Keturah. Evidently, they were, like the related Sheba (Sabaeans), of mixed race (compare Genesis 10:7, 28). In Isaiah 21:13 allusion is made to the "caravans of Dedanites" in the wilds of Arabia, and Ezekiel mentions them as supplying Tyre with precious things (Ezekiel 27:20; in verse 15, "Dedan" should probably be read as in Septuagint, "Rodan," i.e. Rhodians). The name seems still to linger in the island of Dadan, on the border of the Persian Gulf. It is found also in Min. and Sab. inscriptions (Glazer, II, 392).
