Meaning and etymology of the name Mehujael

Mehujael Mehujael

Mehujael is the great-grandson of Cain, the first born son of Adam and Eve. He is the son of Irad and the father of Methushael (Genesis 4:18).

The name Mehujael seems to be a compilation of two elements. The first part comes from the root group maha (maha I & II) meaning to wipe, wipe out(root I), and strike (root II). This same verb is used in Genesis 6:7, where God plans to blot out mankind as it is at that time.

The second part of the name is el, the common abbreviation of Elohim, the genus God.

The name Mehujael means Destroyed Of God (Jones' Dictionary of Old Testament Proper Names), or Smitten Of God (NOBS Study Bible Name List).
