Hebrew - Seraiah
Seraiah -

1. 2 Samuel 8:17.

2. The high priest under king Zedekiah; taken by Nebuzaradan, captain of the Babylonian guard, and slain at Riblah (2 Kings 25:18; 1 Chronicles 6:14; Jeremiah 52:24).

3. Son of Tanhumeth the Netophathite; came to the Babylonian viceroy Gedaliah to Mizpah, who promised security to the Jews who should dwell in the land, serving the king of Babylon (2 Kings 25:23; Jeremiah 40:8).

4. 1 Chronicles 4:13-14.

5. 1 Chronicles 4:35.

6. Ezra 2:2; Nehemiah 7:7 Azariah.

7. Ezra 7:1.

8. Nehemiah 10:2.

9. Nehemiah 11:11.

10. Nehemiah 12:1; Nehemiah 12:12.

11. Neriah's son, Baruch's brother (Jeremiah 51:59; Jeremiah 51:61). Went with Zedekiah to Babylon in the fourth year of his reign. Jeremiah gave a special copy of the prophecy to Seraiah where with to console the Jews in their Babylonian exile. Though Seraiah was to cast it into the Euphrates, a symbol of Babylon's fate, he retained the substance in memory, to communicate orally to his countrymen. Calvin translated "when he went in behalf of Zedekiah," being sent to appease Nebuchadnezzar's anger at his revolt. "This Seraiah was a quiet prince," menuchah, from nuwach "to be quiet" (compare 1 Chronicles 22:9, "a man of rest"). Seraiah was not one of the courtiers hostile to God's prophets, but quiet and docile, ready to execute Jeremiah's commission, notwithstanding the risk. Glassius translated "prince of Menuchah" (on the borders of Judah and Dan, called also Menahath), margin 1 Chronicles 2:52. Maurer translated "commander of the royal caravan," on whom it devolved to appoint the resting places for the night.
