RECORDER

re-kor'-der (mazkir; the Revised Version margin "chronicler"): A high functionary in the court of the Jewish kings, part of whose duty seems to have been to chronicle the events of the reign, but who also occupied a position corresponding with that of the modern vizier (2 Sam 8:16; 20:24; 1 Ch 18:15, etc.). His high rank is shown by the facts that, with other officers, he represented Hezekiah in speaking with Rabshakeh (2 Ki 18:18), and, in the reign of Josiah, superintended the repairs of the temple (2 Ch 34:8).
