Fausset's Bible Dictionary
Jeremiah 39:3; Jeremiah 39:13. (See SHAREZER.) Probably Magis not Magus or Magusu ("the Magi") of the Behistun inscription; the Magi had no standing in Neriglissar's time at Babylon. Εmga means "priest," so Rabmag is "chief priest." The office was one of high dignity, and gave opportunities for gaining possession of the throne.
