Chamberlain. 2 Kings 23:11. An officer who had charge of the royal chambers, or the king's lodgings, wardrobes, etc. Esther 1:10; Esther 1:12; Esther 1:15 A. V. The R. V. reads "chamberlains," but has "or eunuchs" in the margin. The word occurs twice in A. V. of N. T., but entirely different offices are meant in the Greek. Blastus, "the king's chamberlain," mentioned in Acts 12:20. "held a post of honor which involved great intimacy and influence with the king." Erastus, "the chamberlain of the city of Corinth," Romans 16:23, was the treasurer of the city; the R. V. reads "treasurer."
