HASHABIAH

(hassh uh bi' uh) Personal name meaning, “Yahweh has reckoned or imputed,” appearing in longer and shorter Hebrew spellings. 1. Ancestor of Merari among the Levite leaders (1 Chronicles 6:45). 2. Another member of the Merari priesthood (1 Chronicles 9:14; Nehemiah 11:15). 3. Temple musician and Levite under David (1 Chronicles 25:3) and leader of course of Levites (1 Chronicles 25:19). 4. Family of Levites from Hebron given authority to carry out God's business in the service of the king west of the Jordan (1 Chronicles 26:30). This shows the close connection between Temple and palace, religious and political activity in Israel. 5. Leader of the tribe of Levi possibly connected with taking the ill-fated census under David (1 Chronicles 27:17). He may be identical with 4. above. 6. Levite leader under Josiah who provided animals for the Levites to celebrate Passover (2 Chronicles 35:9). 7. Levite leader Ezra conscripted to return to Jerusalem with him from Babylonian Exile about 458 B.C. (Ezra 8:19). He shared responsibility for transporting Temple treasures on the journey (Ezra 8:24-30). Compare Nehemiah 12:24. 8. Israelite called to divorce his foreign wife to protect the people from temptation to false worship according to Greek manuscripts of Ezra 10:25 (NRSV). 9. Levite with administrative duties over city of Keilah who joined Nehemiah in repairing wall of Jerusalem (Nehemiah 3:17). He is probably the same one as the signer of Nehemiah's covenant to obey God's law (Nehemiah 10:11) and could be the same as both 7. and 8. above. 10. Ancestor of chief Levite in Jerusalem in Nehemiah's day (Nehemiah 11:22). 11. Priest one generation after the return from Exile (Nehemiah 12:21).
