Bible Names A-G: Eliashib


Eliashib in Easton's Bible Dictionary whom God will restore. (1.) A priest, head of one of the courses of the priests of the time of David (1 Chr. 24:12). (2.) A high priest in the time of Ezra and Nehemiah (Neh. 12:22, 23). He rebuilt the eastern city wall (3:1), his own mansion being in that quarter, on the ridge Ophel (3:20, 21). His indulgence of Tobiah the Ammonite provoked the indignation of Nehemiah (13:4, 7).

Eliashib in Fausset's Bible Dictionary 1. 1 Chronicles 24:12. 2. 1 Chronicles 3:24. 3. High priest when Nehemiah rebuilt the walls (Nehemiah 3:1-20-21). Energetic in building the sheepgate, sanctifying and setting up its doors; but relationship to Tobiah the Ammonite outweighed regard for the sanctity of the temple. Nehemiah was angry with him for preparing a room therein for his pagan connection (Nehemiah 13:4-7), in opposition to God's prohibition (Deuteronomy 23:3-4). His grandson too had married the pagan Horonite Sanballat's daughter (Nehemiah 13:28). Ungodly alliances are a snare to religious professors (2 Corinthians 6:14-18; Matthew 10:37). "Therefore (says Nehemiah) I chased him from me. Remember them, O my God, because they have defiled the priesthood and the covenant of the priesthood." His genealogy is given (Nehemiah 12:10; Nehemiah 12:22), see Ezra 10:6. 4. Ezra 10:24. 5. Ezra 10:27.

Eliashib in the Bible Encyclopedia - ISBE e-li'-a-shib ('elyashibh, "God restores"): (1) A descendant of David (1 Ch 3:24). (2) Head of the eleventh course of priests (1 Ch 24:12). (3) The high priest in the time of Nehemiah. He, with his brethren the priests, helped in the rebuilding of the wall (Neh 3:1). But later he was "allied unto Tobiah" the Ammonite (Neh 13:4) and allowed that enemy of Nehemiah the use of a great chamber in the temple (Neh 13:5); and one of his grandsons, a son of Joiada, married a daughter of Sanballat the Horonite and was for this expelled from the community by Nehemiah (Neh 13:28). See SANBALLAT. (4, 5, 6) Three Israelites, one a "singer," who had married foreign wives (Ezr 10:24,27,36). (7) Father of Jehohanan (Ezr 10:6); probably identical with (3) above. Called Eliasib in 1 Esdras 9:1. F. K. Farr

Eliashib in Wikipedia the High Priest is mentioned in Nehemiah 12:10,22 and 3:1, 20-21,13:28 and possibly the Book of Ezra 10:6 of the Hebrew Bible. Some also place him in different parts of Nehemiah including 12:23 and 13:4,7, but this is disputed. Nehemiah 3:20-21 places his home between the area of two working groups constructing the walls of Jerusalem on the north side of the city. He helped with the refortification of this wall (Neh 3:1). The size of his house indicated his wealth and high socio-economic status (Neh 3:23-21). His grandson was married to the daughter of Sanballat the Horonite (Neh 13:28). This places him as someone who lived during the time of Nehemiah, and as a result, probably Ezra also. In the year 445 B.C.E., Eliashib was the high priest when Nehemiah returned to Jerusalem in the 20th year of Artaxerxes I (Nehemiah 1:1, 2:1).[1] Josephus puts Eliashib as a contemporary of Ezra during the reign of Xerxes, in Ant. 11.5,6-8. He also dates his reign as high priest through the reign of Cyrus, also called by the Greeks, Artaxerxes. This is the Artaxerxes depicted in the Book of Esther. Josephus outlines this story in Antiq.11:185- Antiq 11:297. The last quotation of this story states, "When Eliasib the high priest was dead, his son Judas succeeded in the high priesthood."(Antiq 11:297)
