Samgar-nebo in the Bible Encyclopedia - ISBE
sam-gar-ne'-bo (camgar nebho, a Babylonian name): An officer
of Nebuchadnezzar, king of Babylon, who, according to the
Massoretic Text of Jer 39:3, took his seat with other nobles
in the middle gate of Jerusalem after the Chaldean army had
taken the city. Schrader (COT, ii, 109) holds that the name is
a Hebraized form of the Assyrian Sumgirnabu ("be gracious,
Nebo"), but Giesebrecht (Comm., 211) conjectures for Samgar a
corruption of Sar-mag (Sar-magh), equivalent to Rab-mag (rab-
magh), which implies virtual dittography. The number of
variant readings exhibited by the Septuagint seems to confirm
the belief that the text is corrupt. Nebo (nabu) is there
joined with the following Sarsechim to agree with Nebushazban
of Jer 39:13. If the name Samgar-nebo is correct, the first
Nergal-sharezer "should perhaps be dropped; we would then
read: "Samgar-nebo the Sarsechim, Nebushazban the Rab-saris
(compare 39:13) and Nergal-sharezer the Rab-mag" (Sayce).
See RAB-MAG; RAB-SARIS.
