1. A Hebrew prophet, Zechariah 12:12; a friend and counselor of David. He approved the king’s purpose of building a temple to the lord, but by divine direction transferred this accomplishment to Solomon, 2 Samuel 7:1-17. By a fine parable, pointedly applied, he convicted David of his guilt in respect to Uriah and Bathsheba, 2 Samuel 12:1-31 Psalms 51:1-19; and his bold fidelity here seems to have been appreciated by David, see NATHAN 2, and is worthy of everlasting remembrance. Solomon was probably educated under his care, 2 Samuel 12:25; and was effectually aided by him in his peaceful succession to the throne, 1 Kings 1.1-53. He wrote some memorials, long since lost, of both David and Solomon, 1 Chronicles 29:29 2 Chronicles 9:29. How long he lived under the reign of Solomon is unknown; but two of his sons were high officers at court, 1 Kings 4:5.

2. A son of David, by Bathsheba, 1 Chronicles 3:5 14:4; an ancestor of Christ, Luke 3:21. See GENEALOGY.
