Meaning of the baby name MICAIAH.


MICAIAH (מִיכָיְהוּ).  BiblicalUnisex.  Hebrew name meaning "who is like Jehovah."

    Micaiah, Michaiah  [Heb. Mikhayah, Mikhayahu, Mikhayehu = "who (is) like Jehovah?"  [MICAH.]  Nos. 1 and 3 are of the second form, Nos. 4, 6, and 7 of the first form, No. 5 of the third form, and No. 2 of the third and fourth forms].
    (1)  The daughter of Uriah of Gibeah.  She was the wife of Rehoboam, and the mother of king Abijah (2 Chron. xiii. 2).  Called in xi. 20 Maalah the daughter of Absalom.
    (2)  A prophet, the son of Imlah.  Being desired by Ahab to concur in the favourable prediction given by the prophets of Baal regarding Ahab's expedition against Ramoth-gilead, he did what was required of him, but with such transparent insincerity that he was adjured to speak the truth, on which, in the name of Jehovah, he predicted the death of Ahab in the coming fight.  The order was given to make him a prisoner till the event should prove his unfavourable vaticination untrue.  When it was found correct, he was probably released (1 Kings xxii. 8-28; 2 Chron. xviii. 6-27).
    (3)  One of Jehoshaphat's princes sent by him to teach in the cities of Judah (2 Chron. xvii. 7).

    (7)  A priest, one of those who blew trumpets when the wall of Jerusalem was dedicated by Nehemiah (Neh. xii. 41).
      The A.V. calls the prophet (see No. 2) Micaiah and the other six men Michaiah.  The R.V. names all the seven people Micaiah. (The Sunday School Teacher's Bible Manual, Hunter, 1894)
