Bible Names H-M: Hanani


Hanani in Easton's Bible Dictionary God has gratified me, or is gracious. (1.) One of the sons of Heman (1 Chr. 25:4, 25). (2.) A prophet who was sent to rebuke king Asa for entering into a league with Benhadad I., king of Syria, against Judah (2 Chr. 16:1-10). He was probably the father of the prophet Jehu (1 Kings 16:7). (3.) Probably a brother of Nehemiah (Neh. 1:2; 7:2), who reported to him the melancholy condition of Jerusalem. Nehemiah afterwards appointed him to have charge of the city gates.

Hanani in Fausset's Bible Dictionary 1. 1 Chronicles 25:4; 1 Chronicles 25:25. 2. The seer who rebuked Asa king of Judah, 941 B.C., for buying the alliance of Benhadad I. of Syria, to help him against Baasha of Israel, instead of "relying on the Lord his God," "whose eyes run to and fro throughout the whole earth to show Himself strong in behalf of those whose heart is perfect toward Him" (Jeremiah 17:5). (See ASA.) So Asa lost the victory over Syria itself which faith would have secured to him. Hanani was imprisoned for his faithfulness (2 Chronicles 16:1-4; 2 Chronicles 16:7-10; compare Jeremiah 20:2; Matthew 14:3). But Asa only thereby sealed his own punishment; by compromising principle to escape war he brought on himself perpetual wars (1 Kings 15:32). Jehu his son was equally faithful in reproving Baasha and Asa's son Jehoshaphat (1 Kings 16:1; 1 Kings 16:7; 2 Chronicles 19:2; 2 Chronicles 20:34). 3. Ezra 10:19-20. 4. Nehemiah's brother, who returned from Jerusalem to Susa and informed him as to Jerusalem, 446 B.C.; afterward made governor of Jerusalem under Nehemiah (Nehemiah 1:2; Nehemiah 7:2). 5. Nehemiah 12:31; Nehemiah 12:36.
