Hebrew - Jaazaniah
JAAZANIAH

(jay az uh ni' uh) Personal name meaning, “Yahweh hears.” 1. Member of party led by Ishmael who opposed Gedaliah after the Babylonians made him governor over Judah following their destruction of Jerusalem in 587 B.C. Jaazaniah may also have been in Ishmael's party that assassinated Gedaliah (2 Kings 25:23-25). His name has a slightly different spelling in Jeremiah 40:8. See Jezaniah. A signet seal found at tell en-Nasbeh dates from the same period and contains a depiction of a fighting cock. The seal inscription shows the seal belonged to Jaazaniah, the servant of the king. This is probably the same person and indicates he was on the king's staff, probably as an army captain. 2. One of the elders of Israel Ezekiel found worshiping idols in the Temple (Ezekiel 8:11). His father Shaphan may have been the counselor of Josiah (2 Kings 22:1).

If so, the son did not imitate the faithful father. 3. A government official whom Ezekiel accused with his associates of giving wicked advice. His name in Hebrew is an abbreviated form of Jaazaniah. 4. The same abbreviated Hebrew name belonged to a Rechabite whom Jeremiah used as an example of faithful obedience to God (Jeremiah 35:3). See Rechabite.
