ja-az-a-ni'-a (ya'azanyahu, in 2 Ki 25:23; Ezek 8:11;
ya'azanyah, in Jer 35:3; Ezek 11:1, "Yah hears"):
(1) In 2 Ki 25:23, "son of the Maacathite," and one of the
Judean "captains of the forces" who joined Gedaliah, the
Babylonian governor appointed by Nebuchadrezzar over Judah,
at Mizpah. He is the "Jezaniah" of Jer 40:8; 42:1. Though
not mentioned by name, he was presumably one of those
captains who joined Johnnan in his attack on Ishmael after
the latter had slain Gedaliah (Jer 41:11-18). He is also the
same as Azariah of Jer 43:2, a name read by the Septuagint's
Codex Vaticanus in 42:1 also. Jer 43:5 relates how Johnnan
and his allies, Jaazaniah (= Azariah) among them, left Judah
with the remnant, and took up their abode in Egypt.
(2) In Jer 35:3, son of Jeremiah (not the prophet), and a
chief of the Rechabite clansmen from whose "staunch
adherence to the precepts of their ancestor" Jeremiah
"points a lesson for his own countrymen" (Driver, Jeremiah,
(3) In Ezek 8:11, son of Shaphan, and one of the seventy men
of the ciders of Israel whom Ezekiel saw in a vision of
Jerusalem offering incense to idols.
(4) In Ezek 11:1, son of Azzur, and one of the 25 men whom
Ezekiel saw in his vision of Jerusalem, at the East door of
the Lord's house, and against whose iniquity he was
commanded to prophesy (11:1-13).
