Hebrew: Ammiy Nadiyb. (compare: “Amminadab”)

This may have been the name of an Israelite. The name “Amminadib” is used only once in the King James Bible (Song of Songs 6:12). It appears in no other translation. There is disagreement among scholars as to how to properly translate Ammiy Nadiyb in context.


  • KJV: “My soul made me like the chariots of Amminadib.”
  • NKJV: “My soul had made me As the chariots of my noble people.”
  • NIV: “My desire set me among the royal chariots of my people.”
  • NRSV: “My fancy set me in a chariot beside my prince.”
