1. Symbolical name of Jerusalem, signifying 'Lion of God,' probably in reference to the lion being the emblem of Judah. Isaiah 29:1,2,7 . In the margin of Ezekiel 43:15 , the altar is called the 'lion of God;' but the word is slightly different and is translated by some the 'hearth of God,' the place for offering all sacrifices to God.

2. One whom Ezra sent to Iddo at Casiphia. Ezra 8:16 .

3. In 2 Samuel 23:20 ; 1 Chronicles 11:22 , we read that Benaiah slow two 'lion-like men,' which some prefer to translate 'two [sons] of Ariel.' The Hebrew is literally 'two lions of God.'
