JAHZEIAH . One of four men who are mentioned as opposing (so RV [Note: Revised Version.] ) Ezra in the matter of the foreign wives ( Ezra 10:15 ). The AV [Note: Authorized Version.] regarded Jahzeiah and his companions as supporters of Ezra, rendering ‘were employed about this matter.’ This view is supported by LXX [Note: Septuagint.] , 1E Esther 9:14 RVm [Note: Revised Version margin.]; but the Heb. phrase here found elsewhere (cf. 1 Chronicles 21:1 , 2 Chronicles 20:23 , Daniel 11:14 ) expresses opposition .
