Easton's Bible Dictionary - Adino
The Eznite, one of David's mighty men (2 Samuel 23:8 ). (See JASHOBEAM )
Fausset's Bible Dictionary - Adino
("his pleasure in the spear".) The Ezmte, the Tachmonite; who slew with his spear 800 at once (2 Samuel 23:8). (See JASHOBEAM.) But Luther reads, to accord with 1 Chronicles 11:11, arer for Αdino ; and, for ha ezni , eth hanitho , i.e., not a proper name but "Jashobeam swung his spear"; compare 1 Chronicles 11:18. Gesenius reads ye'adno ha' ezno , "he shook it, even his spear."

Hastings' Dictionary of the Bible - Adino
ADINO

The present Heb. text of 2 Samuel 23:8 is corrupt, the true reading being preserved in the parallel passage 1 Chronicles 11:11 ‘Jashobeam, the son of a Hachmonite, he lifted up his spear.’ The last clause, hû ‘ôrçr eth-hanîthô , was corrupted into hû ‘adînô ha‘etsnî , and then taken erroneously as a proper name, being treated as an alternative to the preceding ‘Josheb-basshebeth, a Tahche-monite’ (see Jashobeam).

Holman Bible Dictionary - Adino
(uh di' noh) Personal name meaning, “loving luxury.” Chief of David's captains who slew 800 men at one time (2 Samuel 23:8 ). Name does not appear in Septuagint, earliest Greek translation of this passage, nor in the Hebrew text of the parallel passage in 1 Chronicles 11:11 . Some modern translators omit it from 2 Samuel 23:8 (NIV, RSV, TEV).



Morrish Bible Dictionary - Adino
"The Tachmonite that sat in the seat, chief among the captains; the same was Adino the Eznite." 2 Samuel 23:8 . In 1 Chronicles 11:11 the chief of the captains is Jashobeam an Hachmonite, or son of Hachmoni, margin. The passage in Samuel reads in the margin "Joshebbassebet the Tachmonite, head of the three." It is difficult to reconcile the two passages. Some think that Jashobeam and Joshebbassebet are the same name — one being varied by the copyist. Those who take the passage in Samuel to be incorrect, make "Adino the Eznite" not a proper name, but 'he swung his spear.' Fürst takes Adino to be a proper name, and so do the LXX. The two passages may refer to different persons. It will be noted that Jashobeam is said to have killed three hundred men, and Adino killed eight hundred. The former also is named in connection with David's coming into power, and the latter in connection with 'the last words of David.' Jashobeam may therefore have died and Adino become chief in his place. That the two passages are not meant for lists of the 'first three' at the same period seems evident by Shammah, one of the three, being named in Samuel only.
