Bible Names N-Z: Shebna


Shebna in Easton's Bible Dictionary tender youth, "treasurer" over the house in the reign of Hezekiah, i.e., comptroller or governor of the palace. On account of his pride he was ejected from his office, and Eliakim was promoted to it (Isa. 22:15-25). He appears to have been the leader of the party who favoured an alliance with Egypt against Assyria. It is conjectured that "Shebna the scribe," who was one of those whom the king sent to confer with the Assyrian ambassador (2 Kings 18:18, 26, 37; 19:2; Isa. 36:3, 11, 22; 37:2), was a different person.

Shebna in Fausset's Bible Dictionary Hezekiah, whose treasurer or prefect, of the palace Shebna was (Isaiah 22:15); also see Eliakim. (See HEZEKIAH; ELIAKIM.) For pride (Isaiah 22:16), luxury (Isaiah 22:18), oppression (in contrast to Eliakim a "father" to the inhabitants of Jerusalem, Isaiah 22:21), and alienation from God (contrasted with "God's servant," Isaiah 22:20), he was doomed to be "tossed" away as a ball. Repenting, he was only degraded to the lower post of scribe (Isaiah 36:3). Whether the threat was finally fulfilled on himself, he apostatizing, or on his posterity, is uncertain. frontTOMB.)

Shebna in Hitchcock's Bible Names who rests himself; who is now captive

Shebna in Naves Topical Bible -1. A scribe of Hezekiah 2Ki 18:18,26,37; 19:2; Isa 36:3,11,22; 37:2 -2. An official of the king Isa 22:15-19
http://www.bible-history.com/naves/S/SHEBNA+(SHEBNAH)/


Shebna in Smiths Bible Dictionary (vigor), a person of high position in Hezekiah's court, holding at one time the office of prefect of the palace, Isa 22:15 but subsequently the subordinate office of secretary. Isa 36:3; 2Ki 19:2 (B.C. 713.)
http://www.bible-history.com/smiths/S/Shebna/


Shebna in the Bible Encyclopedia - ISBE sheb'-na (shebhna'; Somnas; but shebhnah, in 2 Ki 18:18,26; meaning uncertain (2 Ki 18:18,26,37 and 19:2 = Isa 36:3,11,22 and 37:2; lsa 22:15)): 1. Position in Isaiah 22: In Isa 22:15 Shebna is referred to as he "who is over the house," or household, apparently that of the king. The phrase is translated "steward of the house" in the Revised Version (British and American) of Gen 43:16,19; 44:1, and occurs also in 39:4, "overseer"; 44:4. It is used of an officer of the Northern Kingdom in 1 Ki 16:9; 18:3; 2 Ki 10:5. This officer is distinguished from him "that was over the city" in 2 Ki 10:5, and it is said in 2 Ki 15:5 that after his father Azariah was stricken with leprosy, "Jotham, the king's son, was over the household, judging all the people of the land." Again Isa 22:15 speaks of "this cokhen," a phrase that must apply to Shebna if the prophecy refers to him. This word is the participle of a verb meaning "to be of use or service," so "to benefit" in Job 15:3; 22:2; 34:9. The feminine participle is employed of Abishag in 1 Ki 1:2,4, where King James Version, margin translates "cherisher"; BDB renders it "servitor" or "steward" in Isa 22:15. It occurs also as a Canaanite gloss in the Tell el- Amarna Letters (Winckler, number 237,9). The cokhen was evidently a high officer: Shebna had splendid chariots (22:18), but what the office exactly was is not certain. The other reference to Shebna in the title of the prophecy would lead one to conclude that it denoted him "who was over the household," i.e. governor of the palace, probably, or major- domo. The word cokhen is thus a general title; others deny this, maintaining that it would then occur more frequently...

Shebna in Wikipedia Shebna (Hebrew: שֶׁבְנָא, Modern Shevna Tiberian Šeḇnā ; "tender youth") was "treasurer over the house" (meaning comptroller or governor of the palace) in the reign of king Hezekiah of Judah. Because of his pride he was ejected from his office, and replaced by Eliakim the son of Hilkiah as recorded in (Isaiah 22:15-25). Shebna also appears to have been the leader of the party who favored an alliance with Egypt against Assyria. Shebna may or may not have been "Shebna the scribe", who was sent by the king to confer with the Assyrian ambassador recorded in the (2 Kings 18:18, 26, 37; 19:2; Isa. 36:3, 11, 22; 37:2)...
