Adoniram (//; Hebrew, אדונירם, 'my Lord has exalted'; alternate form Adoram, אדורם 'adoram 'the Lord has exalted'), the son of Abda, was the tax collector In the United Kingdom of Israel for over forty years, from the late years of King David's reign until the reign of Rehoboam. In the language of the Tanakh, he was "over the tribute," i.e., the levy or forced labor. He was stoned to death by the people of Israel when Rehoboam sent him in an attempt to collect taxes.
