The name of two men in the Bible, both of whom are only mentioned one time. The name means the servant and implies the servant of God.

  1. The father of Adoniram who served as the officer over the tribute during the reign of Solomon (1Kings 4:6).
  2. The son of Shammua and a Levite of the family of Jeduthun (Nehemiah 11:17). Abda was one of the Levites chosen to abide in the city of Jerusalem in order to strengthen the population after the rebuilding of the wall under the leadership of Nehemiah (Nehemiah 11:1-2). Abda is evidently the same as “Obadiah the son of Shemaiah” in 1Chronicles 9:16.
