Although the name Abdon is only used eight times in the Bible, it is used as the name of four men and one city.
- The twelfth judge of Israel ruling for eight years after Elon the Zebulonite and before Samson (Judges 12:13-15). He is identified as the son of Hillel and from the city of Pirathon of the tribe of Ephraim. He had forty sons and thirty nephews who rode on seventy asses as a sign of their significance. He is probably the Bedan mentioned as one of the judges in 1Samuel 12:11. Since no problems are mentioned, it is likely that his rule was a peaceful one. It is likely that he was chosen as an elderly but wealthy man to rule over Israel; a position he took until his death.
- One of the sons of Shashak of the tribe of Benjamin who was a chief ruler in Jerusalem (1Chronicles 8:22-25).
- The firstborn son of Jehiel and his wife Maachah of the tribe of Benjamin (1Chronicles 9:35-36; 8:28-30). He lived in Jerusalem.
- One of the men sent by King Josiah to inquire of the prophetess Huldah the meaning of the recently discovered book of the law (2Chronicles 34:20-22). He is the son of Micah and is identified in the parallel passage of 2Kings 22:12-14 as Achbor the son of Michaiah.
