2. A great-grandson of Jerahmeel (1Chr.2.26, 1Chr.2.28, 1Chr.2.30).

4. A son of Jeroboam I and king of Israel for two years (1Kgs.14.20; 1Kgs.15.25-1Kgs.15.31). His evil reign was ended by his assassination at the hands of Baasha of Issachar, ending the dynasty of Jeroboam and fulfilling Ahijah’s prophecy (1Kgs.14.1-1Kgs.14.20).

(nadhabh, "noble"; Nadab):

(2) A descendant of Jerahmeel (1Ch 2:28,30).

(3) A Gibeonite (1Ch 8:30).

(4) Son of Jeroboam I and after him for two years king of Israel (1Ki 14:20; 15:25). While Nadab was investing Gibbethon, a Philistine stronghold, Baasha, who probably was an officer in the army, as throne-robbers usually were, conspired against him, slew him and seized the throne (1Ki 15:27-31). With the assassination of Nadab the dynasty of Jeroboam was extirpated, as foretold by the prophet Ahijah (1Ki 14). This event is typical of the entire history of the Northern Kingdom, characterized by revolutions and counter-revolutions.
