dweller among the people; or to whom the people turn, the Hachmonite (1Ch 11:11), one of David's chief heroes who joined him at Ziklag (1Ch 12:6). He was the first of the three who broke through the host of the Philistines to fetch water to David from the well of Bethlehem (2Sa 23:13-17). He is also called Adino the Eznite (8).
David's follower, a "Hachmonite", or rather "son of Hachmoni," i.e. of the family of Hachmon (1Ch 11:11), son of Zabdiel (1Ch 27:2): head of the first monthly course of officers and men (24,000) who waited by turns on the king ((1Ch 27:32).(See HACHMONITE.) He may be the "Korhite" who joined David at Ziklag (1Ch 12:6). In 2Sa 23:8 he is called the" Tachmonite that sat in the seat," Josheb basshebeth, a corruption of text for Jashobeam. Also he is here called "chief of the captains" or "the three" (shallishiy), in Chronicles "chief of the thirty" (Hebrew shalishim): 2Sa 23:11,15,39; 1Ch 12:4. "The thirty" formed the whole body of David's adjutants, "the three" were the king's aides de camp. He slays 300 in Chronicles, where the number may have crept in from 2Sa 23:18 in the case of Abishai; 800 is the correct number in Samuel; not all at one blow, but with successive throws of his spear.
2. A Korhite who resorted to David at Ziklag. 1Ch 12:6.
