Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

יְחֶזְקֵאל (for יְחַזְּקְאֵל, יְחַזֵּק אֵל, “whom God will strengthen,” Pathach in the shortened syllable being changed into Segol, see Heb. Gramm. ed. 10, § 25, note 1, like, אֲכֶלְךָ Exodus 33:3, for אֲכַלְּךָ), [Ezekiel, Jehezekel], pr.n. of a very celebrated prophet, whose writings stand third in order; he was the son of Buzi the priest. After he was carried away captive together with king Jechoniah, he lived in the Jewish colony on the river Chebar, and there prophesied until the sixteenth year after the destruction of Jerusalem by Nebuchadnezzar (see Ezekiel 29:17); Ezekiel 1:3, 24:24. The LXX. write this name Ἰεζεκιήλ and so Sir_49:8 (10). Vulg. Ezechiel [which has been adopted in the English version] (compare חִזְקִיָּה, יְחִזְקִיָּה Ἐζεχίας, Ezechias), Luther has imitated the Greek, Hefekiel.
