Kitto's Popular Cyclopedia of Biblial Literature
Recorder, the title of a high officer in the court of the kings of Judah (;; ). 'Remembrancer' would perhaps be a more exact translation of the title. The officer thus designated seems to have been not only the grand custodier of the public records, but to have kept the responsible registry of the current transactions of the government. This was an employment of the very first rank and dignity in the courts of the ancient East.
