🔼The name Hizki in the Bible

The name Hizki (or, as some translations have it: Hezeki) occurs only once in the Bible. He is mentioned as a son of Elpaal in a genealogy of Benjamin, the twelfth son (and thirteenth child) of Jacob and the second son of Rachel (1 Chronicles 8:17).

🔼Etymology of the name Hizki

The name Hizki comes from the verb חזק (hazaq), meaning to be strong:

The letter י (yod) upon which our name ends, may either create an adjective (such-and-such-like), a possessive form (my such and such), or may be a remnant of יה (Yah) = יהו (Yahu) = יו (Yu), which in turn are abbreviated forms of the Tetragrammaton יהוה, YHWH, or Yahweh.

🔼Hizki meaning

For a meaning of the name Hizki, NOBSE Study Bible Name List sees the final י (yod) as a possessive form maker, and reads My Strength. Jones' Dictionary of Old Testament Proper Names sees in the yod "the sign of the Divine name" and reads Strength "of the Lord". BDB Theological Dictionary doesn't interpret our name but does list it under the root חזק (hazaq).
