Gad (Hebrew: גָּד, Modern: Gad, Tiberian: Gāḏ, "luck", /ɡæd/) was a seer or prophet mentioned in the Hebrew Bible and the writings of Jewish historian Josephus. He was one of the personal prophets of King David of Israel and, according to the Talmudic tradition, some of his writings are believed to be included in the Books of Samuel. He is first mentioned in 1 Samuel 22:5 telling David to return from refuge in Moab to the forest of Hereth in the land of Judah. 1 Chronicles 21:18–19 tells of an encounter Gad had with the angel of the Lord. A tomb attributed to Gad is located at Halhul.
