Bible Names N-Z: Zaphnath-paaneah


Zaphnath-paaneah in Easton's Bible Dictionary the name which Pharaoh gave to Joseph when he raised him to the rank of prime minister or grand vizier of the kingdom (Gen. 41:45). This is a pure Egyptian word, and has been variously explained. Some think it means "creator," or "preserver of life." Brugsch interprets it as "governor of the district of the place of life", i.e., of Goshen, the chief city of which was Pithom, "the place of life." Others explain it as meaning "a revealer of secrets," or "the man to whom secrets are revealed."

Zaphnath-paaneah in Fausset's Bible Dictionary Egyptian title of Joseph, Zfntanch; from zaf "corn food," nt "of," anch "life" (Genesis 41:45). Cook, in Speaker's Commentary, Harkavy, from zaf "food," net "saviour," paaneh "life." So a scholium on Septuagint; "saviour of the world." Not as Hebrew interpreters (Josephus Ant. 2:6, Section 1) "revealer of secrets."

Zaphnath-paaneah in Naves Topical Bible -A name given to Joseph by Pharaoh Ge 41:45
http://www.bible-history.com/naves/Z/ZAPHNATH-PAANEAH/


Zaphnath-paaneah in Smiths Bible Dictionary a name given by Pharaoh to Joseph. Ge 41:45 The rabbins interpreted Zaphnath-paaneah as Hebrew in the sense revealer of a secret. As the name must have been Egyptian, it has been explained from the Coptic as meaning the preserver of the age.

Zaphnath-paaneah in the Bible Encyclopedia - ISBE zaf-e'-nath-pa-ne'-a, zaf'-nath-pa-a-ne'a (tsaphenath pa`aneach; Egyptian Zoph-ent-pa-ankh; Septuagint D, Psonthomphantch, "the one who furnishes the nourishment of life," i.e. the chief steward of the realm): The name given Joseph by the Egyptian king by whom he was promoted, probably the Hyksos king Aphophis (Gen 41:45). See JOSEPH.

Zaphnath-Paaneah in Wikipedia Zaphnath-Paaneah is the name stated by the Bible (Genesis, 41:45) as given by Pharaoh to Joseph. It seems to be an Egyptian name, but its etymology is in doubt. Targum Onkelos gives the meaning of the name as "the man to whom mysteries are revealed"; pseudo-Jonathan, "one who reveals mysteries"; Josephus ("Ant." ii. 6, § 1), "a finder of mysteries." The Authorised Version has in the margin: "Which in the Coptic signifies, 'A revealer of secrets,' or 'The man to whom secrets are revealed.'" There is, however, no Egyptian etymology by which these guesses can be supported. Jerome claims that his suggestion, "savior of the world," rests on the Egyptian. This interpretation is also accepted by Jablonski. Modern Egyptologists have tried a great many etymologies for the element "Zaphnath," but have mostly agreed that "paaneah" contains the Egyptian "p-ônḫ," meaning "the life". Steindorff's explanation,[1] differs somewhat; it is "ṣe(d)- p-nute(r)-ef-onḫ" = "the god speaks, [and] he lives." This has become popular, and is philologically possible; however, it does not convey the allusion to Joseph's office or merits which we should expect. The Septuagint (Ψον[or Ψομ]θομφανήχ) and the Hexaplaric versions, however, differ so widely from the Hebrew in the first half of the name that it may have been disfigured by copyists.
