Hebrew - Malchijah

(mal ki' juh) Personal name with long and short spelling meaning, “My King is Yahweh.” 1. Ancestor of the musician Asaph (1 Chronicles 6:40). 2. Priest in David's time (1 Chronicles 24:9; compare 1 Chronicles 9:12; Nehemiah 11:12). 3. Prince of Judah in Jeremiah's time, probably the father of Pashur (Jeremiah 21:1; Jeremiah 38:1,Jeremiah 38:6); 4.-6. Three of Ezra's contemporaries with foreign wives (Ezra 10:25,Ezra 10:31); some modern translations replace the second Malchijah in the Hebrew text of Ezra 10:25 with Hashabiah, the early Greek reading. 7. One standing with Ezra at the reading of the law (Nehemiah 8:4). 8. Priest signing Ezra's covenant (Nehemiah 10:3); 9.-12. Four contemporaries of Nehemiah involved in the rebuilding (Nehemiah 3:11,Nehemiah 3:14,Nehemiah 3:31) or dedication of the walls (Nehemiah 12:42). Several of the references in Ezra and Nehemiah may refer to the same person(s).
