Reference: Shebna


A major-domo or palace-governor of king Hezekiah, against whom is directed one of the recorded utterances of Isaiah (Isa 22:15-25). The prophetic denunciation appears to have found its fulfilment in Shebna's degradation to the office of 'scribe' or secretary, and the elevation of Eliakim (wh. see) to the post of palace-governor (2Ki 18:18,26-27; 19:2 = Isa 36:3,11; 37:2). Shebna was in all probability a foreigner.
