Bible Names A-G: Eliakim


Eliakim in Easton's Bible Dictionary whom God will raise up. (1.) The son of Melea (Luke 3:30), and probably grandson of Nathan. (2.) The son of Abiud, of the posterity of Zerubbabel (Matt. 1:13). (3.) The son of Hilkiah, who was sent to receive the message of the invading Assyrians and report it to Isaiah (2 Kings 18:18; 19:2; Isa. 36:3; 37:2). In his office as governor of the palace of Hezekiah he succeeded Shebna (Isa. 22:15- 25). He was a good man (Isa. 22:20; 2 Kings 18:37), and had a splendid and honourable career. (4.) The original name of Jehoiakim, king of Judah (2 Kings 23:34). He was the son of Josiah.

Eliakim in Fausset's Bible Dictionary 1. Hilkiah's son, over Hezekiah's household (Isaiah 36:3). As Joseph over Pharaoh's palace, Azrikam "governor of Ahaz' house" (2 Chronicles 28:7); chamberlain, treasurer, prefect of the palace (Genesis 41:40), chief minister. Successor of Shebna, whose deposition for his pride was foretold (Isaiah 22:15-20). Elevated at the time of the Assyrian invasion as the one most adapted to meet such a crisis. Same as Azariah son of Hilkiah (1 Chronicles 6:13); the same man often bearing two names (Kimchi). God calls him "My servant": a pious patriot (compare 2 Kings 18:37; 2 Kings 19:1-5). A "father to (counseling, befriending, and defending) the inhabitants of Jerusalem and to the inhabitants of Judah." Type of Messiah: "the key of the house of David will I lay upon his shoulder (the key hung from the kerchief on the shoulder as emblem of his office, or figuratively for sustaining the government on his shoulder); so he shall open and none shall shut:, and he shall shut and none shall open;" i.e., all access to the royal house shall be through him. Antitypically, "the government shall be upon Messiah's shoulder" (Isaiah 9:6; Isaiah 22:22); He shuts or opens at will the access to the heavenly mansion (Revelation 3:7), He has the keys also of hell (the grave) and death (Revelation 1:18). As Eliakim supplanted Shebna, so Christ the Heir of David's throne shall supplant all the stewards who abuse their trust in God's spiritual house, the church and the world (hereafter to become coextensive with the church): Hebrews 3:2-6. For the rest of Isaiah's imagery as to Eliakim, (See NAIL; SHEBNA, when degraded, was "scribe" (i.e. secretary, remembrancer, keeping the king informed on important facts, historiographer) under Eliakim (2 Kings 18:37), who became "treasurer," or as Hebrew coken (Isaiah 22:15) from caakan, "to dwell" means, intimate friend of the king, dwelling on familiar terms, and "steward of the provisions" (compare 1 Chronicles 27:33). 2. King JEHOIAKIM'S original name. 3. Nehemiah 12:41. 4. Luke 3:26; Matthew 1:13. 5. Luke 3:30-31.

Eliakim in the Bible Encyclopedia - ISBE e-li'-a-kim ('elyaqim; Eliakeim, "God sets up"): (1) The son of Hilkiah who succeeded Shebna as gorvernor of the palace and "grand vizier" under Hezekiah (Isa 22:20). The functions of his office are seen from the oracle of Isaiah in which Shebna is deposed and Eliakim set in his place (Isa 22:15 ff). He is the "treasurer" (the Revised Version, margin "steward"), and is "over the house" (Isa 22:15). At his installation he is clothed with a robe and girdle, the insignia of his office, and, having the government committed into his hand, is the "father to the inhabitants of Jerusalem, and to the house of Judah" (Isa 22:21). The key of the house of David is laid on his shoulder, and he alone has power to open and shut, this being symbolic of his absolute authority as the king's representative (Isa 22:22). One of Solomon's officials is the first mentioned as occupying this position (1 Ki 4:6), and this office was continued in both the Northern and Southern Kingdom (1 Ki 16:9; 18:3; 2 Ki 10:5; 15:5). Its importance is seen from the fact that after Azariah was smitten with leprosy, Jotham his heir "was over the household, judging the people of the land" (2 Ki 15:5). When Sennacherib sent an army against Jerusalem in 701, Eliskim was one of these Jewish princes who held on behalf of Hezekiah a parley with the Assyrian officers (2 Ki 18:18,26,37; Isa 36:3,11,22). As a result of the invader's threats, he was sent by Hezekiah in sackcloth to Isaiah, entreating his prayers to Yahweh on behalf of Jerusalem (2 Ki 19:2; Isa 37:2). (2) The original name of Jehoiakim, the son of Josiah, whom Pharaoh-necoh made king of Judah (2 Ki 23:34; 2 Ch 36:4). (3) A priest who assisted at the dedication of the wall of Jerusalem, rebuilt after his return from Babylon (Neh 12:41). (4) A grandson of Zerubbabel and ancestor of Jesus (Mt 1:13). (5) An ancestor of Jesus (Lk 3:30).
