Meaning: given

  1. A prophet in the reigns of David and Solomon (2Chr 9:29). He is first spoken of in connection with the arrangements David made for the building of the temple (2 Sam 7:2, 3, 17), and next appears as the reprover of David on account of his sin with Bathsheba (12:1-14). He was charged with the education of Solomon (12:25), at whose inauguration to the throne he took a prominent part (1 Kg 1:8, 10, 11, 22-45). His two sons, Zabad (1Chr 2:36) and Azariah (1 Kg 4:5) occupied places of honour at the king's court. He last appears in assisting David in reorganizing the public worship (2Chr 29:25). He seems to have written a life of David, and also a life of Solomon (1Chr 29:29; 2Chr 9:29).
  2. A son of David, by Bathsheba (2 Sam 5:14), whose name appears in the genealogy of Mary, the mother of Jesus (Lk 3:31).
  3. Ez 8:16.
