Bedan is evidently recognized here as one of the most important judges, yet his name is nowhere mentioned in the book of Judges. There was a judge named Abdon, however (Judges 12:13-15), for which "Bedan" might be a variant spelling. Also, it is possible that a copyist error might have inadvertently written "Bedan" for "Barak," since the Hebrew characters for the two names are quite similar. Another possibility is that Samson, of the tribe of Dan, might be called "Bedan" (or "Ben-Dan," "Son of Dan").
