Jadon is a Hebrew name meaning "thankful" (according to Strong's Concordance) or "he will judge".[1] It appears in the Hebrew Bible or Old Testament as the name of Jadon the Meronothite, one of the builders of the wall of Jerusalem in the Book of Nehemiah (Nehemiah 3:7).

The prophet Jadon[edit]

According to Flavius Josephus, Jadon is the name of a minor prophet in his Antiquities of the Jews VIII,8,5. In the Hebrew Bible it is referred to as the man of God (1 Kings 13:1). In the Lives of the Prophets he is called Joad. A Rabbinic tradition identifies him with Iddo.
