Jeze'lus (Ι᾿έζηλος), the Graecized form (in the Apocrypha) of the name of two Jews whose sons are said to have returned from Babylon with Ezra; but a comparison with the Hebrew text seems to indicate an identity or else confusion.

1. (Vulgate Zecheleus.) The father of Sechenias, of "the sons of Zathoe" (1 Esdr. 8:32); evidently the JAHAZIEL of Ezr 8:5.

2. (Vulg. Jehelus.) The father of Abadias, of "the sons of Joab" (1 Esdr. 8:35); evidently the JEHIEL of Ezr 8:9.
