Hozai (Heb. Chozay', חוֹזִי, seer; Sept. οἱ ὁρῶντες, Vulg. Hozai, Auth. Vers. the seers," marg. "Hosai"), a prophet or seer, the historiographer of Manasseh, king of Judah (2Ch 33; 2Ch 19). B.C. p. 642. The Jews are of opinion that Hosai and Isaiah are the same person; the Sept. takes Hosai in a general sense for prophets and seers: the Syriac calls him Hanan, the Arabic Sapcha. — Calmet, s.v. Bertheau (Chronik. Einleit. p. 35) conjectures that חוזי is here a corrupt rendering for חוזים, as in ver. 18; but for this there is only the authority of a single Codex and the Sept. (Davidson, Revision of Heb. Text, p. 221, b). SEE CHRONICLES.
