The first-named of the four chief officers sent by Nebuzar-adan to take Jeremiah out of the court of the guard (Jeremiah 39:13) and to deliver him into safe hands. The position of this official is not known. The equivalent of the name in Babylonian-Assyrian is probably "Nabu-shuzibanni" = "Nabu, save me." This same name is found as belonging to one of the sons of Necho I., who paid tribute to Assurbanipal (Brugsch, "Gesch. Aegyptens," pp. 720, 724). It occurs occasionally in the Babylonian-Assyrian inscriptions in lists of names, and is thus found to be given in correct form in the Old Testament.
