Bible Names H-M: Memucan


Memucan in Easton's Bible Dictionary dignified, one of the royal counsellors at the court of Ahasuerus, by whose suggestion Vashti was divorced (Esther 1:14, 16, 21).

Memucan in Fausset's Bible Dictionary One of the seven princes who "saw the king's face and sat first in the kingdom" (Esther 1:13-14); "wise men who knew the times and law and judgment." Ahasuerus accordingly consulted them, "what shall we do unto Vashti according to law?" Memucan as president of the council owing to his wisdom and age, or else as an obsequious courtier knowing his master's mind, gave his opinion first, that Vashti should be disgraced; and his counsel the king followed.

Memucan in the Bible Encyclopedia - ISBE me-mu'-kan (memukhan; derivation unknown but probably of Persian origin (Est 1:14,16,21)): One of "the seven princes of Persia and Media, who saw the king's face, and sat first in the kingdom." Ahasuerus consults these men, as those "that knew law and judgment," as to the proper treatment of the rebellious Vashti. Memucan is the spokesman of the reply. He recommends Vashti's deposition so that "all the wives will give to their husbands honor, both to great and small." This advice is adopted and incorporated into a royal decree--with what success is not said.

Memucan in Wikipedia According to the biblical book of Esther (Esther 1:14, 1:16- 21), Memucan was one of the seven vice-regents of the Persian King Ahasuerus. It is not stated in the text explicitly, but it is the generally accepted belief that Memucan and Haman were the same person. When Queen Vashti, Ahasuerus' consort, refused his order to display herself at the king's banquet, Memucan advised the king to depose her and replace her with a more worthy wife. Memucan further advised the king to issue a decree throughout his domain declaring his action, so that all women would learn a lesson and honor and respect their husbands. The decree was translated and transcribed into each language and script of the empire, so that each man would be "master in his own house." [1]
