Etymology of the name ZACHARIAH.
Meaning of the baby name ZACHARIAH.


ZACHARIAH.  Biblical.  Hebrew name meaning "whom Jehovah remembers."

ZACHARIAH.  [Zechariah, "whom Jehovah remembers"].
    (1) Zechariah (2 Kings xv. 8, 11A.V.).
    (2) Zechariah (2 Kings xviii. 2A.V.).
    (3) A son of Barachias.  He was a righteous man, slain by the Jews "between the sanctuary and the altar" (Matt. xxiii. 35R.V.).  The prophet Zechariah, who wrote one of the Old Testament canonical books, was a son of Berechiah, and may have thus perished.  But it is more probable that the reference is to Zechariah the son of Jehoiada, whose fate is described in 2 Chron. xxiv. 20-22, 2 Chronicles being the last book in the Hebrew Bible, as Genesis, which records the murder of Abel, is the first.  Luke (xi. 51) does not say who was the father of the Zachariah slain.  It is therefore probable, or at least possible, that some reader wrote "son of Berachiah" on the margin, and that a copyist by mistake inserted it in the text. (The Sunday School Teacher's Bible Manual, Hunter, 1894)
