🔼The name Asaiah in the Bible

The name Asaiah is assigned to five different men in the Bible:

  • The first Asaiah we meet is a family leader of the tribe of Simeon (1 Chronicles 4:36).
  • The second is a son of Haggiah, descendants of Merari of Levi (1 Chronicles 6:30).
  • This last Asaiah is possibly the same as the one(s) mentioned in 1 Chronicles 15:6 and 15:11, but not the same as the next one:
  • The Asaiah mentioned in 1 Chronicles 9:5.
  • Finally, there is Asaiah the servant of king Josiah, who is part of the contingent that is to establish the value of a scroll found in the temple. The group ends up in the house of Huldah the prophetess (2 Kings 22:12).

🔼Etymology of the name Asaiah

The name Asaiah comes from the root-verb עשה ('asa), meaning to do or make:

The inserted letter י (yod) ostensibly creates the familiar יה, which would immediately be recognized as a truncated form of יהוה (YHWH), the Name of the Lord. This appellation may be regarded as being superimposed on the verb, swallowing up the second ה.

🔼Asaiah meaning
