Rabsaris

Rabsaris

Rabsaris (possibly "Chief of officers") is the name or title of two individuals mentioned in the Bible:

  • One of the three officers whom the King of Assyria (Sennacherib) sent from Lachish with a threatening message to Jerusalem (2 Kings 18:17)
  • A prince of Nebuchadnezzar (Jeremiah 39:3,13). While originally translated to be the name of the persons it referred to, Rabsaris is now thought to be the name of an office or rank, not an individual.
