ZEPHANIAH

(zehf uh ni' uh) Personal name meaning, “Yahweh sheltered or stored up” or “Zaphon (god) is Yahweh.” 1. A prophet in the Old Testament whose preaching produced the thirty-sixth book of the Old Testament.

2. Priest whom King Zedekiah sent asking Jeremiah to pray for the nation threatened by Nebuchadrezzar of Babylon (Jeremiah 21:1-7; Jeremiah 37:3). He reported false prophecy from Babylon to Jeremiah (Jeremiah 29:24-32). When Jerusalem fell, the priest was executed (Jeremiah 52:24-27).

3. Father of Josiah and Hen (Zechariah 6:10,Zechariah 6:14), possibly identical with 2. above. 4. A Levite (1 Chronicles 6:36), perhaps the same as Uriel (1 Chronicles 6:24).
