Hen'dan (Heb. Chemdan', חֶמדָּן, pleasant; Sept. Α᾿μαδά, Vulgate Hemdam), the first named of the foul "children" of Dishon, which latter was a son of Seir and one of the Horite "dukes" antecedent to the supremacy of the Edomites in Mt. Seir (Ge 36:26). B.C. cir. 1964. In 1Ch 1:41, the name is, by an error of transcribers, written Hamran (Heb. Chamrani, חִמרָן, Sept. correctly Α᾿μαδί, Vulg. Hanran, Eng.Vers. "'Amram"). "The name Hemdan is by Knobel (Genesis, p. 256) compared with those of Humeidy and Hamady, two of the five families of the tribe of Omriln r Amran, who are located to the E. and S.E. of Akaba (Robinson, Researches, 1, 268); also with the Bene-Hanzyde, who are found a short distance S. of Kerek (S.E. comer of the Dead Sea); and from thence to El- Busaireh, probably the ancient Bozrah, on the road to Petra. (See Burckhardt, Syria, etc., p. 695, 407.)
