Quartermaster

Additional Links
Officer charged with receipt and distribution of rations and supplies (Jeremiah 51:59 NASB, NRSV, REB). Quartermaster reflects the Hebrew “tribute-prince.” The KJV reading “quiet prince” reflects a different vocalization of the Masoretic text. The NIV reading “staff-officer” likely reflects a slight change in the consonantal text to read “prince of the camp.” See Prince .
