Pashhur

Pashhur (Pash´huhr)

1 A priest, son of Immer, and chief officer in the Temple; he opposed Jeremiah’s prophecy, beat him, and put him in stocks. Jeremiah renamed him “Terror-all-around,” reaffirmed his own word of destruction, and prophesied personal exile to Babylon for Pashhur and his family (Jer 20). 2 The son of Malchiah, who apparently was King Zedekiah’s son. Zedekiah sent Pashhur to inquire of the Lord through Jeremiah (Jer 21) while Nebuchadnezzar was making war against Judah. Jeremiah repeated God’s word of destruction. The same Pashhur, a high official, accused Jeremiah of treason and recommended his death (Jer 38). Later, among the priests who returned from exile was Gedaliah, a descendant of Pashhur, son of Malchiah (1Chr 9:12; Neh 11:12; though of different generations). The descendants of Pashhur, distinct from the descendants of Immer, made up one of the important priestly families who returned from the exile (Ezra 2:38; Ezra 10:22; Neh 7:41). 3 The father of the Gedaliah who joined Pashhur, son of Malchiah, in the action against Jeremiah (Jer 38:1); he was perhaps the same Pashhur as 1 above. 4 A high official who was contemporary with Nehemiah (Neh 10:3).
