1. (Sept. Ε᾿ψιβά,Vulg. Hacphsiba.) The mother of king Manasseh, and consequently queen dowager of king Hezekiah (2Ki 21:1). Notwithstanding the piety of her husband, and her own amiable name, her irreligion may be inferred from the character of her son. — B.C. 709-696.

2. (Sept. Θέλημα ἐμὀν,Vulg. Voluntas mea in ea.) A figurative title ascribed to Zion in token of Jehovah's favor (in the return from the Captivity, and especially in the Messiah's advent), in contrast with her predicted desolation (Isa 62:4).
