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.)
