The KJV term for a mediator, arbitrator, or umpire (Job 9:33 ). In the Near East such mediators placed their hands on the heads of the parties in a dispute. The mediator may have attempted to bring both parties together in reconciliation or may have had authority to impose a settlement on both parties. Job's point is that no human is capable of standing in judgment of God. The New Testament points to “the man Christ Jesus” as the “one mediator between God and men” (1 Timothy 2:5 ).
