🔼The name Hephzibah in the Bible
The extraordinarily beautiful name Hephzibah is assigned twice in the Bible:
🔼Etymology of the name Hephzibah
The name Hephzibah consists of two elements that are separated by a maqqep( a Hebrew hyphen):
The first part comes from the verb חפץ (hapes), meaning to take delight in:
The central yod in the name Hephzibah denotes possession of what precedes: my delight.
The second part of the name is the very common and ubiquitous particle ב (be), meaning in at or by (it's the first letter of the Bible: in the beginning):
The final he, denotes the feminine pronominal suffix: her.
Isaiah renders Jerusalem this wonderful name, and explains it right away by saying:
...which means: Because YHWH delights in you.
For a meaning of the name Hephzibah, BDB Theological Dictionary, NOBSE Study Bible Name List and Jones' Dictionary of Old Testament Proper Names agree: My Delight Is In Her.
