(jeh zuh ni' uh) Personal name meaning, “Yahweh gave ear.” 1. Army captain loyal to Gedaliah, the governor Babylon appointed over Judah immediately after Babylon destroyed Jerusalem and took the Jewish leaders into Exile about 586 B.C. (Jeremiah 40:8 ). Jezaniah was one of the captains who refused to believe Jeremiah's prophecy calling the people to remain in Judah. Rather, he helped carry Jeremiah into Egypt (Jeremiah 42-43 ). In Jeremiah 43:2 the name is Azariah, which may be the correct reading in Jeremiah 4:1 rather than Jezaniah. See Azariah .
