JAHDAI (ja'dā-ī). Either a concubine or, more likely, a male descendant of Caleb (1Chr.2.46-1Chr.2.47).

JAHDAI jä’ dā ī, jä’ dī (יָהְדָּ֑י, Yah leads [?]). In 1 Chronicles 2:47, a concubine (cf. vv. 46, 48) or, more prob., a male descendant of Caleb.

International Standard Bible Encyclopedia (1915)

ja’-da-i, ja’-di (yahday, "Yah leads" (?); Baer reads yehday): In 1Ch 2:47, where six sons of Jahdai are mentioned. "The name has been taken as that of another wife or concubine of Caleb; more probably Jahdai is a descendant of Caleb, whose name, in the original connection, has fallen from the text" (Curtis, Chronicles, 96).
