Meshez'abeel (Hebrews Mesheyzabel', משַׁיזִבאֵל, whose deliverer is God; Sept. Μαζαβήλ, Μεσωζεβήλ, and Βασηζά v.r. Μασεζειήλ; Vulg. Mesezebel
and Mesizebel), one of the chief Israelites that subscribed the sacred covenant after the captivity, BC. cir. 410 (Ne 10:21); apparently the same with the father of Pethahiah the Zerahite of Judah, which latter had previously (BC. cir. 440) assisted in the administration of civil affairs (Ne 11:24); and perhaps the same with the father of Berechiah and grandfather of Meshullam, which last had (BC. 446) assisted in repairing the walls of Jerusalem (Ne 3:4).
