JADDUS jăd’ əs (B, ̓Ιαδδούς, A, ̓Ιοδδούς). A priest whose descendants could not prove their right to the priesthood, since their genealogy was lost, and therefore could not serve as priests (1 Esd 5:38; KJV Addus). He himself married Agia, a daughter of Barzillai (KJV Berzelus, ASV Zorzelleus). He took the name of his father-in-law (Ezra 2:61; Neh 7:63).

International Standard Bible Encyclopedia (1915)

the King James Version has "Addus" = Barzillai (Ezr 2:61; Ne 7:63). Jaddus was removed from the office of the priesthood because he could not prove his right to it after the return to Jerusalem under Zerubbabel (1 Esdras 5:38). He is called Barzillai in the. Old Testament, because he married Augia, the daughter of Zorzelleus (Barzillai the Gileadite, in the Old Testament). Compare BARZILLAI.
