Abdon (Hebrew: עבדון, ʻAḇdōn; "Name means::servitude") (fl. Flourit::Abib 2875 AMDied::Abib 2883 AM),[1] or Abdon Ben Hillel (Hebrew: עבדון בן הלל, ʻAḇdōn Ben Hillēl) was the thirteenth Judge of Israel. He was an Ephraimite and was evidently very wealthy. He had forty sons and thirty grandsons, and each man owned a donkey. (Judges 12:13-15 ).

His career lasted for eight years, and then he died. One year before he died, the ark of the covenant was captured in battle by Philistines.
