[many Genu'bath] (Heb. Genubath', גְּנֻבֵת Sept. Γανηβάθ ), the son of Hadad, of the Edomitish royal family, by the sister of Tahepenes, the queen of Egypt (in the time of David), reared in Pharaoh's household ( 1 Kings 11:20), to save him from the extermination by Joab ( 1 Kings 11:16). He was born (B.C. cir. 1036) in the palace of Pharaoh, and weaned by the queen herself; safer which he became a member of the royal establishment, on the same footing as one of the sons of Pharaoh. Some connect the name with the Heb. root גָּנִב , To steal, and suppose an allusion either to his being the product of a Furtive amour (Clericus), or to his existence being owing to his father's having stolen away from the destructive fury of the Israelites (Thenius); others, with greater probability, find in it an allusion to the Egyptian deity Kneph or Cnuphis. (See Hadad).

International Standard Bible Encyclopedia [7]

gē̇ - nū´bath ( גּנבת , genubhath , "theft"): Son of Hadad, the fugitive Edomite prince, born and brought up at the court of Egypt, whither Hadad had fled when David conquered Edom (  1 Kings 11:20 ). His mother was a sister of Tahpenes, queen of the Pharaoh who ruled Egypt at that time, and who belonged to the notoriously weak and uninfluential 21st dynasty.
