jesh'-u-a, je-shu'-a (yeshua`, "Yahweh is deliverance" or "opulence"; compare JOSHUA):
(1) the King James Version "Jeshuah," head of the 9th course of priests, and possibly of "the house of Jeshua" (1 Ch 24:11; Ezr 2:36; Neh 7:39).
(2) A Levite of Hezekiah's time (2 Ch 31:15).
(3) Son of Jozadak = Joshua the high priest (Ezr 2:2; 3:2,8; 4:3; 5:2; 10:18; Neh 7:7; 12:1,7,10,26); see JOSHUA (4) = "Jesus" (1 Esdras 5:48 and Sirach 49:12).
(4) A man of Pahath-moab, some of whose descendants returned from Babylon to Jerusalem with Zerubbabel (Ezr 2:6; Neh 7:11) = "Jesus" (1 Esdras 58).
(5) Head of a Levitical house which had oversight of the workmen in the temple (Ezr 2:40; 3:9; Neh 7:43). He is mentioned again in Neh 8:7 as taking part in explaining the Torah to the people, in Neh 9:4 f (compare 12:8) as leading in the worship, and in 10:9 (Hebrew 10) as sealing the covenant; this Jeshua is called son of Azaniah (Neh 10:9). To these references should be added probably Neh 12:24, where commentators read, "Jeshua, Binnui, Kadmiel" for "Jeshua the son of Kadmiel." Perhaps Jozabad (Ezr 8:33) is a "son" of this same Jeshua; compare Ezr 8:33 = 1 Esdras 8:63, where the King James Version is "Jesu," the Revised Version (British and American) "Jesus." He is the same as Jessue (the King James Version), Jesus (Revised Version) (1 Esdras 5:26).
(6) Father of Ezer, a repairer of the wall (Neh 3:19).
(7) JOSHUA, son of Nun (Neh 8:17) (which see).
