ELNATHAN

el-na'-than ('elnathan, "God has given"):
(1) The grandfather of Jehoiachin (2 Ki 24:8).
(2) A courtier of Jehoiakim; he was one of those sent to Egypt to bring back the prophet Uriah (Jer 26:22), and one of those who heard the reading of Jeremiah's roll and entreated Jehoiakim not to burn the roll (Jer 36:12,25)--possibly the same person as (1) above.
(3, 4, 5) The name of two "chief men"--unless textual corruption has introduced the name at its second occurrence--and of one "teacher" sent for by Ezra from the camp at the river Ahava (Ezr 8:16).
