Hosen SEE HOSE. Hoshai'ah (Heb. Hoshayah', הוּשֵׁעיָה, whom Jehovah delivers; Sept, ᾿Ωσαϊvα, but identifies those named in Jer 42:1; Jer 43; Jer 2, yet changes in both passages to Maaaaian'; Vulg. Oscjas), the name of two men.
1. The father of Jehazaniah, which latter besought Jeremiah to favor the flight of the remnant of the Jews into Egypt (Jer 42:1). He is apparently the same with the father of Azariah, which latter is mentioned as rejecting the advice of Jeremiah after he had thus solicited it (Jer 43:2). B.C. 587.
2. One who headed the procession of the chief men of Judah along the southern section of the newly rebuilt walls of Jerusalem (Ne 12:32). B.C. 446.
