🔼The name Jekuthiel in the Bible
🔼Etymology of the name Jekuthiel
The origin of the first part of the name Jekuthiel is somewhat obscure. Alfred Jones (Dictionary of Old Testament Proper Names) derives it from a possible noun from the verb יקה (yakeh):
The post-fixed yod might indicate possession. Hence Jones reads The Fear Of God.
BDB Theological Dictionary reluctantly agrees with Jones' deduction, and reads a slightly more accurate Preservation Of God. NOBSE Study Bible Name List proposes God Will Support.
