Dictionary

American Tract Society Bible Dictionary - Adoniram
A receiver of tributes under David and Solomon, and director of the thirty thousand men sent to Lebanon to cut timber, 1 Kings 5:14 . The same person is also called Adoram, by contraction, 2 Samuel 20:21 1 Kings 12:8 ; and also Hadoram, 2 Chronicles 10:18 . He was stoned to death by the revolted ten tribes, having been sent to them by Rehoboam, either to induce them to return, or to test by gathering the taxes.
Easton's Bible Dictionary - Adoniram
(Adoram, 1 Kings 12:18 ), the son of Abda, was "over the tribute," i.e., the levy or forced labour. He was stoned to death by the people of Israel (1 Kings 4:6 ; 5:14 )
Hitchcock's Bible Names - Adoniram
My Lord is most high; Lord of might and elevation
Fausset's Bible Dictionary - Adoniram
Son of Abda; over the tribute for about 47 years under David, Solomon, and Rehoboam; also over Solomon's levy of 30,000 sent by ten thousands monthly to cut timber in Lebanon (1 Kings 4:6). Contracted into ADORAM (2 Samuel 20:24) and HADORAM. Stoned by the people of Israel when sent by Rehoboam to collect the tribute which had been their chief ground of complaint against the king (1 Kings 12:18; 2 Chronicles 10:18).
Hastings' Dictionary of the Bible - Adoniram, Adoram
ADONIRAM, ADORAM . The latter name occurs 2Sa 20:24 , 1 Kings 12:18 , and is probably a corruption of Adoniram. Adoniram superintended the levies employed in the public works during the reigns of David, Solomon, and Rehoboam. He was stoned to death by the rebellious Israelites when sent to them by Rehoboam ( 1 Kings 12:18 ).
Holman Bible Dictionary - Adoniram
(ad oh ni' ruhm) Personal name meaning, “the Lord is exalted.” Officer in charge of the work gangs Solomon conscripted from Israel (1 Kings 4:6 ; 1 Kings 5:14 ). The king forced Israel's citizens to work for the state to secure materials to build the Temple and the other projects of Solomon. Apparently the same person continued administering the work force for Rehoboam, though his name is abbreviated to Adoram in 1 Kings 12:18 . At that time, Israel rebelled against making free citizens work. They stoned Adoniram to death. The name is spelled Hadoram in 2 Chronicles 10:18 . Recently archaeologists uncovered a seal which probably dates to the seventh century, long after Adoniram. The seal talks of a person over the labor force.
People's Dictionary of the Bible - Adoniram
Adoniram (ăd'o-nî'ram). See Adoram.
Morrish Bible Dictionary - Adoniram
Chief over the tribute in the days of Solomon. 1 Kings 4:6 ; 1 Kings 5:14 . In David's time ADORAM was over the tribute, 2 Samuel 20:24 , and in the days of Rehoboam also a person of this name was over the tribute, 1 Kings 12:18 , which Gesenius and others take to be a contracted form of Adoniram, and to refer to the same person. Apparently the Adoram mentioned in 1 Kings 12:18 is called HADORAM in 2 Chronicles 10:18 . All Israel stoned him to death at the revolt of the ten tribes. If Adoniram held office from David to Rehoboam it would embrace a long period; still it may be the same throughout, or father and son.
