    Joab

    (1) Eldest son of Zeruiah, David’s sister, and captain of David’s army. He was closely associated with all the chief events of David’s reign and was generally faithful to his master. After David’s death he was in favor of Adonijah’s succession (1 Kgs. 2:28) and for that reason was put to death by Solomon (2:29–34).

    (2) Two others (1 Chr. 4:14; Ezra 2:6).
