a priest in the reign of David, (1 Chronicles 24:11) the same as JESHUA, No. 2. (B.C. 1014.)

International Standard Bible Encyclopedia

jesh'-u-a, je-shu'-a (yeshua`, "Yahweh is deliverance" or "opulence"; compare JOSHUA):

(1) the King James Version "Jeshuah," head of the 9th course of priests, and possibly of "the house of Jeshua" (1 Chronicles 24:11 Ezra 2:36 Nehemiah 7:39).

(2) A Levite of Hezekiah's time (2 Chronicles 31:15).

(3) Son of Jozadak = Joshua the high priest (Ezra 2:2; Ezra 3:2, 8; 4:03; 5:02; 10:18 Nehemiah 7:7; Nehemiah 12:1, 7, 10, 26); see JOSHUA (4) = "Jesus" (1 Esdras 5:48 and Sirach 49:12).

(4) A man of Pahath-moab, some of whose descendants returned from Babylon to Jerusalem with Zerubbabel (Ezra 2:6 Nehemiah 7:11) = "Jesus" (1 Esdras 58).

(5) Head of a Levitical house which had oversight of the workmen in the temple (Ezra 2:40; Ezra 3:9 Nehemiah 7:43). He is mentioned again in Nehemiah 8:7 as taking part in explaining the Torah to the people, in Nehemiah 9:4 (compare 12:8) as leading in the worship, and in 10:9 (Hebrew 10) as sealing the covenant; this Jeshua is called son of Azaniah (Nehemiah 10:9). To these references should be added probably Nehemiah 12:24, where commentators read, "Jeshua, Binnui, Kadmiel" for "Jeshua the son of Kadmiel." Perhaps Jozabad (Ezra 8:33) is a "son" of this same Jeshua; compare Ezra 8:33 = 1 Esdras 8:63, where the King James Version is "Jesu," the Revised Version (British and American) "Jesus." He is the same as Jessue (the King James Version), Jesus (Revised Version) (1 Esdras 5:26).

(6) Father of Ezer, a repairer of the wall (Nehemiah 3:19).

(7) JOSHUA, son of Nun (Nehemiah 8:17) (which see).
