Do'do (Hebrews Dodo', דּוֹדוֹ, amatory; but, according to Fürst, an abbreviation of Dodavah), the name of three men.
1. (Sept. πατράδελφος αὐτοῦ v.r. πατὴρ ἀδελφοῦ αὐτοῦ; Vulg. patruus Ahimelech, both apparently as a rendering of "Ahohite" inserted.) A descendant of Issachar, father of Phuah, and grandfather of the judge Tola (Jg 10:1). B.C. considerably ante 1319.
2. (Sept. Δουδί, Δωδαϊv; Vulg. patruus ejus.) An Ahohite (q.v.), father of Eleazar, who was one of David's three special heroes (2Sa 23:9, margin; 1Ch 11:12). B.C. ante 1046. He seems to be the same with the DODAI mentioned in 1Ch 27:4, as commander of the fourth monthly division of the royal troops under David. This latter form of the name occurs in the Hebrew text of 2Sa 23:9 (דֹּדֹי), and is favored by the Sept. as well as by Josephus (Ant. 7:12, 4, Δώδειος); and is believed by Kennicott (Dissertation, page 134), who has examined these lists with great minuteness, to be the correct one. The Jewish tradition (Jerome, Qu. Hebr. on 1Ch 11:12) was that Dodo was the brother of Jesse.
3. (Sept. Δουσὶ πατράδελφος αὐτοῦ, and Δωδωαί v.r. Δωδωέ; Vulg. patruus jus.) A Bethlehemite, and father of the Elhanan who was one of David's thirty heroes (2Sa 23:24; 1Ch 11:26). B.C. ante 1046.
