Sar'sechim (Heb. Sarsekim', שִׂרסכַים, probably prince of the eunuchs; Sept. [with great confusion] Ναβουάχαρ v.r. Ναβουσαρσαχίμ, etc.; Vulg. Sarsachien), one of the generals of Nebuchadnezzar's army at the taking of Jerusalem (Jer 39:3), B.C. 588. He appears to have held the office of chief eunuch, for Rabsaris (q.v.) is probably a title and not a proper name. In Jer 39:13, Nebushasban is called Rab-saris, "chief eunuch," and the question arises whether Nebushasban and Sarsechim may not be names of the same person. Gesenius conjectures (Thesaur. s.v.) that Sarsechim and Rab-saris may be identical, and both titles of the same office. SEE SAMGAR-NEBO.
