Nathan (2)

Additional Links

(1) A prophet (2 Samuel 7; Psalm 51 , title). See preceding article.

(2) A son of King David (2 Samuel 5:14; 1 Chronicles 3:5; 1 Chronicles 14:4 ).

(3) Father of Igal, one of David's heroes (2 Samuel 23:36 ). In 1 Chronicles 11:38 , we have "Joel the brother of Nathan"; the Septuagint's Codex Vaticanus has "son" in this verse, but it is impossible to say whether Igal or Joel is the correct name.

(4) A J erahmeelite (1 Chronicles 2:36 ), whose son is called Zabad, whom some suppose to be the same as Zabud (1 Kings 4:5 ). On this view this Nathan is the same as the prophet (see 1, above).

(5) A companion of Ezra from Babylon (Ezra 8:16 and 1 Esdras 8:44).

(6) Nathanias (1 Esdras 9:34), one of those who had married foreign wives (Ezra 10:39 ).

(7) Name of a family (Zechariah 12:12 ).
