From Nebo, the idol; zar, "prince"; and adan or 'adown, "lord" (Gesenius); but Furst, from dana (Sanskrit), "cut off." "Captain of the guard," literally, "chief of the slaughterers"; next to the royal person (2Ki 25:8-18; Jer 39:9-13). Assumed the chief command on arriving after the siege of Jerusalem. Directed what was to be done with the plunder and captives. (See CAPTIVITY.) Took the chief Jews for judgment to Nebuchadnezzar at Riblah. Visited Jerusalem four years later, and took away more captives (Jer 52:30). By Nebuchadnezzar's direction, Nebuzaradan "looked well to Jeremiah," gave him his choice of going to Babylon or staying, then sent him with victuals and a present, to be protected by Gedaliah the governor left over Judah, after having first told the Jews "Jehovah hath done according as He hath said, because ye have sinned against Jehovah" (Jer 39:11-14; 40:2-5). The pagan knew, through Jeremiah, it was Jehovah's doing; compare the prophecy, De 29:24-25. How humiliating to the Jews to be admonished of their sin by a Gentile ruler!
