What is Rabsaris?
        (chief eunuch), the title of a high Assyrian or Babylonian officer. 2 Kgs 18:17; Jer 39:3, 2 Kgs 11:13. RAB'SHAKEH seems to be the name, not of a person, but of an officer - the chief butler or cupbearer - who was sent with Rab-saris, the chief of the eunuchs, and Tartan, messengers of the king of Assyria, to Hezekiah, summoning him, in the most indecent and blasphemous manner, to surrender his capital. 2 Kgs 18:17-37.
