Jeiel

Jeiel (Ji-i´uhl; Heb., “God takes away”)

1 A clan chieftain in the tribe of Reuben (1Chr 5:7). 2 A Benjaminite, the father of Gibeon and great-grandfather of Saul (1Chr 8:29; 1Chr 9:35). 3 The son of Hotham the Aroerite; one of David’s fighting men (1Chr 11:44). 4 A levitical musician of the Merarite clan who helped celebrate the transfer of the Ark of the Covenant to Jerusalem (1Chr 15:18; 1Chr 15:21). A second Jeiel is also listed among the group of musicians (1Chr 16:5), but he is elsewhere called Jaaziel (1Chr 15:18) or Aziel (1Chr 15:20). It is possible that Jeuel, a variant spelling of Jeiel, refers to the same person (2Chr 29:13), although he is from the clan of Elizaphan. 5 A Levite associated with the musical clan of Asaph; an ancestor of Jehaziel, the prophesier of deliverance for King Jehoshaphat (2Chr 20:14), he is possibly the same as 4. 6 A scribe during the reign of Uzziah (Azariah) in Judah (2Chr 26:11). 7 A leader of the Levites who contributed animals for the celebration of the Passover reinstated by Josiah (2Chr 35:9). 8 A member of the clan of Nebo who took a foreign wife (Ezra 10:43).
