je-hi'-el, je-hi'-e-li (yechi'el, "may God live!"):
(1) A Levite, one of the musicians appointed to play upon instruments at the bringing up of the ark by David (1 Ch 15:18,20; 16:5); (yechi'eli): A patronymic of this name (1 Ch 26:21,22), but Curtis (Chronicles, 286-87) reads "Jehiel (1 Ch 26:21) and he is brethren Zetham and Joel" (1 Ch 26:22); compare 1 Ch 23:8, where the three seem to be brothers. See (2) above.
(2) A Gershonite, head of a Levitical house (1 Ch 23:8; 29:8).
(3) Son of a Hachmonite; he was "with the king's (David's) sons," i.e. their tutor (1 Ch 27:32).
(4) A son of King Jehoshaphat (2 Ch 21:2).
(5) In 2 Ch 29:14 the King James Version, where Qere is yechu'el, the Revised Version (British and American) "Jehuel," a Hermanite Levite who took part in cleansing the temple in Hezekiah's reign.
(6) An overseer in Hezekiah's reign (2 Ch 31:13).
(7) One of the three "rulers" of the temple in Hezekiah's reign (2 Ch 35:8).
(8) Father of Obadiah, a returned exile (Ezr 8:9) = "Jezelus" of 1 Esdras 8:35.
(9) Father of Shecaniah (Ezr 10:2) = "Jeelus" of 1 Esdras 8:92. He was a "son" of Elam, and so probably the same as "Jehiel" in Ezr 10:26, one of those who had married foreign wives = "Jezrielus" of 1 Esdras 9:27.
(10) A "son" of Harim, and one of those who had married foreign wives (Ezr 10:21) = "Hiereel" of 1 Esdras 9:21.
(11) The King James Version in 1 Ch 9:35 = JEIEL (q.v. (2)).
(12) The King James Version in 1 Ch 11:44 = JEIEL (q.v. (3)).
