Magor-Missabib

MAGOR-MISSABIB. A nickname given ( Jeremiah 20:8 ) by Jeremiah to Pashhur, chief officer in the Temple, who had caused Jeremiah to be beaten and put in the stocks as a false prophet. The name is an etymological play on the word Pashhur , and denotes ‘fear-roundabout’; but whether Pashhur (wh. see) was to be that to his surroundings, or vice versa, does not appear.
