Jezaniah [N] [H]

(whom Jehovah hears ), the son of Hoshaiah the Maachathite, and one of the captains of the forces who had escaped from Jerusalem during the final attack of the beleaguering army of the Chaldeans. (B.C. 588.) When the Babylonians had departed, Jezaniah, with the men under his command, was one of the first who returned to Gedaliah at Mizpah. In the events which followed the assassination of that officer Jezaniah took a prominent part. ( 2 Kings 25:23 ; Jeremiah 40:8 ; 42:1 ; 43:2 )
