Zidon'ian (Heb. sing. Tsidoni', צַדֹנַי, Eze 32:30; plur. Tsidonim, צַידוֹנַים צַידֹנַים [the full form], or צַדֹנַים [Ezr 3:7, they of Zidon], and [1Ki 11:5,33] Tsidongs צַידֹנַין, Sept. Σιδώνιοι Eze 32:30, (στρατηγὶ Α᾿σσούρ]; Vulg. Sidonmi [except ver. 30, venatores]; A.V. "Sidonians," 2Ki 16:20) the inhabitants of Zidon. They were among the nations of Canaan left to practice the Israelites in the art of war (Jg 3:3), and colonies of them appear to have spread up into the hill country from Lebanon to Misrephoth-maim, (Jos 13:4,6), whence in later times they hewed cedar-trees for David and Solomon (1Ch 22:4). They oppressed the Israelites on their first entrance into, the country (Jg 10:12), and appear to have lived a luxurious, reckless life Jg 15:7); they were skilful in hewing timber (in 5, 6), and were employed for this purpose by Solomon. They were idolaters and worshipped Ashtoreth as their tutelary goddess (Jg 11:5,33; 2Ki 23:13), as well as the sun-god Baal, from whom their king was named (1Ki 16:31). The term Zidonian among the Hebrews appears to have been extended in meaning as that of Phoenician among the Greeks. Zidonian worm en (Tsedeniyoth', צֵדנַיּוֹת; Sept. Σύραι, Vulg. Sidoniae) were in Solomon's harem (11, 1), SEE ZIDON.
