  • A prophet in the reigns of David and Solomon (2 Chronicles 9:29). He is first spoken of in connection with the arrangements David made for the building of the temple (2 Samuel 7:2,3,17), and next appears as the reprover of David on account of his sin with Bathsheba (12:1-14). He was charged with the education of (Solomon 12:25), at whose inauguration to the throne he took a prominent part (1 Kings 1:8,10,11,22-45). His two sons, Zabad (1 Chronicles 2:36) and Azariah (1 Kings 4:5) occupied places of honour at the king's court. He last appears in assisting David in reorganizing the public worship (2 Chronicles 29:25). He seems to have written a life of David, and also a life of Solomon (1 Chronicles 29:29; 2Chr 9:29).

  • A son of David, by Bathsheba (2 Samuel 5:14), whose name appears in the genealogy of Mary, the mother of our Lord (Luke 3:31).

  • Ezra 8:16.
