Bar-Hadad III (Aram.) or Ben-Hadad III (Heb.) was the son of Hazael, and succeeded him after his death as king of Aram Damascus. His succession is mentioned in II Kings 13:3, 24. He is thought to have ruled from 796 BC to 792 BC, although there are many conflicting opinions among Biblical archaeologists as to the length of his reign.

The archaeological Stele of Zakkur mentions him as "Bar Hadad, son of Hazael".
