Dodo (Doh´doh; Heb., “his beloved”)

1 A member of the tribe of Issachar and the grandfather of Tola, one of the judges of Israel (Judg 10:1). 2 An Ahohite, father of Eleazer, one of the three chief leaders of David’s fighting men (2Sam 23:9). He is probably the same person referred to as Dodai the Ahohite (1Chr 27:4), although it is probable that, due to an inadvertent omission in the text, it was his son Eleazer who commanded the division of twenty-four thousand men under David and not Dodai himself. 3 A man from Bethlehem, the father of Elhanan, one of David’s warriors (2Sam 23:9).
