Fausset's Bible Dictionary

Adino

("his pleasure in the spear".) The Ezmte, the Tachmonite; who slew with his spear 800 at once (2 Samuel 23:8). (See JASHOBEAM.) But Luther reads, to accord with 1 Chronicles 11:11, arer for Adino; and, for ha ezni, eth hanitho, i.e., not a proper name but "Jashobeam swung his spear"; compare 1 Chronicles 11:18. Gesenius reads ye'adno ha' ezno, "he shook it, even his spear."
