ADONIRAM (also ADORAM, HADORAM; "The Lord is Exalted"):

(Redirected from ADORAM.)

Superintendent of the collection of taxes in the reigns of David, Solomon, and Rehoboam ("Adoram," II Sam. xx. 24; "Hadoram," II Chron. x. 18). In both cases, the Septuagint gives "Adoniram." He was stoned to death by the seceding Israelites in the reign of Rehoboam, by whom he had been sent to collect the tax in the north (I Kings, iv. 6; v. 14; xii. 18).
