Jo'ram (Heb.,יוֹרָ; Sept. Ι᾿ωράμ), prop. a shortened form of the name JEHORAM (q.v.), for which it is indifferently used in the Heb., and arbitrarily in the A.V., as the following classification shows:

a. The son of the king of Zobah (2Sa 8:10; Sept. Ι᾿εδδουράμ; elsewhere called HADORAM).

b. The king of Judah (2Ki 8:21,23-24; 2Ki 11:2; 1Ch 3:11; elsewhere Jehoram).

c. The king of Israel (2Ki 8:16,25,28 [twice], 29 [twice]; 9:14 [twice], 15, 16 [twice], 29; incorrectly for Jehoram, 2Ki 9:17,21 [twice], 22, 23; elsewhere correctly so).

d. The Levite (1Ch 26:25,יֹרָ). i.e. By error for JOZABAD (1 Esdr. 1:9).
