given. (1.) A prophet in the reigns of David and Solomon (2Ch 9:29). He is first spoken of in connection with the arrangements David made for the building of the temple (2Sa 7:2,3,17), and next appears as the reprover of David on account of his sin with Bathsheba (12:1-14). He was charged with the education of Solomon (12:25), at whose inauguration to the throne he took a prominent part (1Ki 1:8,10,11,22-45). His two sons, Zabad (1Ch 2:36) and Azariah (1Ki 4:5) occupied places of honour at the king's court. He last appears in assisting David in reorganizing the public worship (2Ch 29:25). He seems to have written a life of David, and also a life of Solomon (1Ch 29:29; 2Ch 9:29).

(2.) A son of David, by Bathsheba (2Sa 5:14), whose name appears in the genealogy of Mary, the mother of our Lord (Luk 3:31).

(3.) Ezr 8:16.
