Bible Names H-M: Meshach




Meshach in Easton's Bible Dictionary the title given to Mishael, one of the three Hebrew youths who were under training at the Babylonian court for the rank of Magi (Dan. 1:7; 2:49; 3:12-30). This was probably the name of some Chaldean god.

Meshach in Hitchcock's Bible Names that draws with force

Meshach in Naves Topical Bible -A name given by the chief eunuch to Mishael, one of the three Hebrew young men Da 1:7; 2:49; 3:12-30

Meshach in Smiths Bible Dictionary (guest of a king), the name given to Mishael, one of the companions of Daniel, who with three others was taught, Da 1:4 and qualified to "stand before" King Nebuchadnezzar, Da 1:5 as his personal attendants and advisers. Da 1:20 But notwithstanding their Chaldeans education, these three young Hebrews were strongly attached to the religion of their fathers; and their refusal to join in the worship of the image on the plain of Dura gave a handle of accusation to the Chaldeans. The rage of the king, the swift sentence of condemnation passed upon the three offenders, their miraculous preservation from the fiery furnace heated seven times hotter than usual, the king's acknowledgement of the God of Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego, with their restoration to office, are written in the third chapter of Daniel, and there the history leaves them.

Meshach in the Bible Encyclopedia - ISBE me'-shak (meshakh): Possibly the Sumerian form of the Babylonian Cil-Asharidu, "the shadow of the prince," just as Shadrach probably means "the servant of Sin," and Abednego the "servant of Ishtar." Meshach was one of the three Hebrew companions of Daniel, whose history is given in the first chapters of the Book of Daniel. See, further, under SHADRACH.

Meshach in Wikipedia In the Biblical book of Daniel, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego (sometimes referred to collectively as The Three Young Men[citation needed]) were three young men from Judah brought into the court of King Nebuchadnezzar II during the first deportation of the Israelites[1]. Their Hebraic names were Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah (respectively). Along with Daniel (His Chaldean name was Belteshazzar) these young men were said to be from the royal family or nobility of Judah[2] and were brought into King Nebuchadnezzar's court by Chief Official Asphenaz. These three are most noted for their part in the Biblical narrative of the fiery furnace...

Meshach Scripture - Daniel 2:49 Then Daniel requested of the king, and he set Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, over the affairs of the province of Babylon: but Daniel [sat] in the gate of the king.

Meshach Scripture - Daniel 3:12 There are certain Jews whom thou hast set over the affairs of the province of Babylon, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego; these men, O king, have not regarded thee: they serve not thy gods, nor worship the golden image which thou hast set up.

Meshach Scripture - Daniel 3:28 [Then] Nebuchadnezzar spake, and said, Blessed [be] the God of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, who hath sent his angel, and delivered his servants that trusted in him, and have changed the king's word, and yielded their bodies, that they might not serve nor worship any god, except their own God.
