1 Chronicles 18:
He sent Hadoram his son to king David, to inquire of his welfare, and to congratulate him, because he had fought against Hadarezer, and smitten him; (for Hadarezer had war with Tou;) and with him
all manner of vessels of gold and silver and brass.
2 Chronicles 10:
Then king Rehoboam sent Hadoram that was
over the tribute; and the children of Israel stoned him with stones, that he died. But king Rehoboam made speed to get him up to his
chariot, to flee to Jerusalem.
Holman Bible Dictionary
(huh doh' ram) Personal and tribal name perhaps meaning, “Hadad (god) is exalted.”
1. Arabic tribe descended from Shem through Eber and thus distantly related to Hebrews according to the Table of Nations (Genesis 10:27 ). They lived in southern Arabia. 2. Son of Tou, city-state ruler in Hamath of Syria. Hadoram brought tribute to David after David had defeated Hadad-ezer of Zobah (1 Chronicles 18:10 ). See Hadad-ezer .
3. “Taskmaster over the forced labor” (2 Chronicles 10:18 NRSV) under Rehoboam, Solomon's son and successor as king of Judah. Rehoboam sent Hadoram to collect tribute from the Northern Kingdom immediately after they rebelled and refused to acknowledge Rehoboam as king. The children of Israel killed Hadoram. Thus they showed their contempt for Rehoboam's forced labor policies and made final the division between Israel and Judah, beginning the period of the divided monarchy.

Easton's Bible Dictionary
The son of Tou, king of Hamath, sent by his father to congratulate David on his victory over Hadarezer, king of Syria (1 Chronicles 18:10 ; called Joram 2 Samuel 8:10 ).
The fifth son of Joktan, the founder of an Arab tribe (Genesis 10:27 ; 1 Chronicles 1:21 ).
One who was "over the tribute;" i.e., "over the levy." He was stoned by the Israelites after they had revolted from Rehoboam (2 Chronicles 10:18 ). Called also Adoram (2 Samuel 20:24 ) and Adoniram (1 Kings 4:6 ).
Fausset's Bible Dictionary
1. Son of Tou or Toi, king of Hamath; sent to congratulate David on his victory over Hadarezer (1 Chronicles 28:10), bearing costly presents in gold, silver, and brass (antiques according to Josephus). More likely to be the true name than "Jeram," which contains the name of Jehovah (2 Samuel 8:10).
2. The contracted form of Adoniram (2 Samuel 20:24; 1 Kings 4:6; 1 Kings 12:18). Over the tribute, under David, Solomon, and Rehoboam. Stoned to death when sent as one of the old or moderate party, to appease the sedition; the choice of the superintendent of taxes for the purpose was consistent with the general lack of tact in Rehoboam.
Hastings' Dictionary of the Bible
HADORAM. 1. The fifth son of Joktan ( Genesis 10:27 , 1 Chronicles 1:21 ). 2. The son of Tou, king of Hamath ( 1 Chronicles 18:10 ). In the parallel passage, 2 Samuel 8:9 f., Hadoram wrongly appears as Joram . 3. 2 Chronicles 10:18 . The parallel passage, 1 Kings 12:18 , has preserved the more correct form Adoram .
Morrish Bible Dictionary
