Rezon: Prince, son of Eliadah. Abandoning the service of Hadadezer, the king
of Zobah, on the occasion of his being defeated by David, he became
the "captain over a band" of marauders, and took Damascus, and became
king of Syria
(1 Kings 11:23-25; 2 Samuel 8:3-8) For centuries after this the
Syrians were the foes of Israel. He "became an adversary to Israel
all the days of Solomon."
