 Hanun
    graciously given. (1.) The son and successor of Nahash, king of
    Moab. David's messengers, sent on an embassy of condolence to

    of Joab, forthwith crossed the Jordan, and gained a complete
    victory over the Moabites and their allies (2 Sam. 10:1-14) at
    Medeba (q.v.).
      (2.) Neh. 3:13. (3.) 3:30.
