Easton's Bible Dictionary - Exile
Of the kingdom of Israel. In the time of Pekah, Tiglath-pileser II. carried away captive into Assyria (2 Kings 15:29 ; Compare Isaiah 10:5,6 ) a part of the inhabitants of Galilee and of Gilead (B.C. 741). After the destruction of Samaria (B.C. 720) by Shalmaneser and Sargon (q.v.), there was a general deportation of the Israelites into Mesopotamia and Media (2 Kings 17:6 ; 18:9 ; 1 Chronicles 5:26 ). (See ISRAEL, KINGDOM OF .)
Of the kingdom of the two tribes, the kingdom of Judah. Nebuchadnezzar, in the fourth year of Jehoiakim (Jeremiah 25:1 ), invaded Judah, and carried away some royal youths, including Daniel and his companions (B.C. 606), together with the sacred vessels of the temple (2 Chronicles 36:7 ; Daniel 1:2 ). In B.C. 598 (Jeremiah 52:28 ; 2 Kings 24:12 ), in the beginning of Jehoiachin's reign (2 Kings 24:8 ), Nebuchadnezzar carried away captive 3,023 eminent Jews, including the king (2 Chronicles 36:10 ), with his family and officers (2 Kings 24:12 ), and a large number of warriors (16), with very many persons of note (14), and artisans (16), leaving behind only those who were poor and helpless. This was the first general deportation to Babylon. In B.C. 588, after the revolt of Zedekiah (q.v.), there was a second general deportation of Jews by Nebuchadnezzar (Jeremiah 52:29 ; 2 Kings 25:8 ), including 832 more of the principal men of the kingdom. He carried away also the rest of the sacred vessels (2 Chronicles 36:18 ). From this period, when the temple was destroyed (2 Kings 25:9 ), to the complete restoration, B.C. 517 (Ezra 6:15 ), is the period of the "seventy years."
In B.C. 582 occurred the last and final deportation. The entire number Nebuchadnezzar carried captive was 4,600 heads of families with their wives and children and dependants (Jeremiah 52:30 ; 43:5-7 ; 2 Chronicles 36:20 , etc.). Thus the exiles formed a very considerable community in Babylon.
When Cyrus granted permission to the Jews to return to their own land (Ezra 1:5 ; 7:13 ), only a comparatively small number at first availed themselves of the privilege. It cannot be questioned that many belonging to the kingdom of Israel ultimately joined the Jews under Ezra, Zerubbabel, and Nehemiah, and returned along with them to Jerusalem (Jeremiah 50:4,5,17-20,33-35 ).
Large numbers had, however, settled in the land of Babylon, and formed numerous colonies in different parts of the kingdom. Their descendants very probably have spread far into Eastern lands and become absorbed in the general population. (See JUDAH, KINGDOM OF; CAPTIVITY .)
Holman Bible Dictionary - Exile
(ex' ile) The events in which the northern tribes of Israel were taken into captivity by the Assyrians and the events in which the southern tribes of Judah were taken into captivity by the Babylonians. Sometimes the terms “captivity,” and “carried into captivity” refer to the exiles of Israel and Judah. History of the Exile of Israel The United Monarchy divided in 922 B.C., with the tribes located in the north known as Israel and the tribes located to the south known as Judah. Internal strife prevailed in Israel from 922 to 842 B.C.
In Old Testament times the Assyrians and Babylonians introduced the practice of deporting captives into foreign lands. Deportation was generally considered the harsher measure only when other means had failed. Rather than impose deportation, Assyria demanded tribute from nations it threatened to capture. As early as 842 B.C., Jehu, king of Israel, was paying tribute to Shalmaneser, king of Assyria. Not until the reign of Tiglath-pileser (745-727 B.C.) did the Assyrians began deporting people from the various tribes of Israel.
In 734 B.C., Tiglath-pileser captured the cities of Naphtali (2 Kings 15:29 ) and carried away as captives the inhabitants of the tribes of Naphtali, Reuben, Gad, and the half-tribe of Manasseh (1 Chronicles 5:26 ). In 732, Tiglath-pileser took control of Damascus, the capital city of Syria. At that time he appointed Israel (the Northern Kingdom) her last king—Hoshea (732-723 B.C.). Hoshea rebelled about 724 B.C. and was taken captive by the Assyrians (2 Kings 17:1-6 ).
Samaria, the capital city of Israel, held out until early 721 B.C. Shalmaneser V (727-722 B.C.) laid siege to the city. The eventual fall of Samaria occurred at the hands of Sargon II (722-705 B.C.). These events marked the end of the ten northern tribes (2 Kings 17:18 ).
The Assyrians exiled the Israelites into Halah, Gozan, and Media (2 Kings 17:6 ; 2 Kings 18:11 ; Obadiah 1:20 ). The Assyrians brought into Samaria people from Babylon, Cuthah, Ava, Hamath, and Sepharvaim (2 Kings 17:24 ; Ezra 4:10 ). Sargon II recorded that 27,290 Israelites were deported.
The prophets Hosea and Amos had prophesied the fall of Israel. These two prophets proclaimed that Israel's fall was due to moral and spiritual degeneration rather than to the superior military might of the Assyrian nation. Assyria was only the “rod of mine anger”' (Isaiah 10:5 ).
History of the Exile of Judah More than a hundred years before the Babylon Exile, Isaiah, the prophet, had predicted Judah's fall (Isaiah 6:11-12 ; Isaiah 8:14 ; Isaiah 10:11 ). In addition, the prophets Micah, Zephaniah, Jeremiah, Habakkuk, and Ezekiel agreed that Judah would fall.
Assyria's last king, Ashurbanipal, died in 630 B.C. His death marked the end of Assyrian dominance of Judah. Both Judah and Egypt sought to take advantage of Assyria's diminishing power. Judah's hopes were dashed when King Josiah (640-609) was killed at the battle of Megiddo (2 Kings 23:29 ). King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon dashed Egypt's hopes when he defeated the Egyptians at the battle of Carchemish in 605 B.C. Jehoahaz, one of Josiah's sons, ruled Judah for three months in 609 B.C. before he was deported to Egypt where he died (2 Kings 23:31-34 ; 2 Chronicles 36:4-8 ).
After defeating the Egyptians, Nebuchadnezzar laid siege to Jerusalem, the capital city of Judah, in 598 B.C. Jehoiakim, a second son of Josiah, served as king of Judah for eleven years (609-597 B.C.) before Nebuchadnezzar destroyed the city of Jerusalem (2 Kings 23:34-24:6 ; 2 Chronicles 36:4-8 ). Jehoiakim died in the battle at Jerusalem. His son, Jehoiachin, reigned for three months before he was exiled to Babylon (2 Kings 24:6-16 ; 2 Chronicles 36:9-10 ; Esther 2:6 ; Jeremiah 22:24-30 ;).
Nebuchadnezzar appointed Zedekiah, a third son of Joshua to rule the vassal state of Judah for eleven years (597-586 B.C.) until the fall of Jerusalem when he was blinded and taken into Exile into Babylon (2 Kings 24:17-25:7 ; 2 Chronicles 36:10-21 ; Jeremiah 39:1-7 ; Jeremiah 52:1-11 ; Ezekiel 12:12-13 ; Ezekiel 17:5-21 ).
There were three deportations of Jews to Babylon. The first occurred in 598 B.C. (2 Kings 24:12-16 ). The second deportation took place in 587 B.C. (2 Kings 25:8-21 ; Jeremiah 39:8-10 ; Jeremiah 40:7 ; Jeremiah 52:12-34 ). After the second deporation, Gedeliah was appointed governor of Judah by the Babylonians but was assassinated (2 Kings 24:25 ). A third deportation, a punishment for Gedaliah's assassination, occurred in 582 B.C. (Jeremiah 52:30 ).
Life in the Exile meant life in five different geographical areas: Israel, Judah, Assyria, Babylon, and Egypt. We possess little information about events in any of these areas between 587 B.C. and 538 B.C.
1. Israel Assyria took the educated, leading people from the Northern Kingdom and replaced them with populations from other countries they had conquered (2 Kings 17:24 ). They had to send some priests back to the area to teach the people the religious traditions of the God of the land (2 Kings 17:27-28 ). Such priests probably served a population which contained poor Jewish farmers dominated by foreign leaders. When Babylon took over the area, they established a provincial capital in Samaria. Leaders there joined with other provincial leaders to stop Zerubbabel and his people from rebuilding the Temple (Ezra 4:1-24 ). Gradually, a mixed population emerged (Isaiah 45:9-10 ). Still, a faithful remnant attempted to maintain worship of Yahweh near Shechem, producing eventually the Samaritan community. See Samaritans.
2. Assyria Exiles from the Northern Kingdom were scattered through the Assyrian holdings (2 Kings 17:6 ). Apparently, their small communities, isolated from other Jews, did not allow them to maintain much national identity. We do not know what happened to these people, thus the popular title—the lost tribes of Israel. Some may have eventually returned to their original homeland. Others may have established the basis of Jewish communities which appear in later historical records.
3. Judah The Babylonians did not completely demolish Judah. They left farmers, in particular, to care for the land (Jeremiah 52:16 ). Some citizens who had fled the country before the Babylonian invasion returned to the land after Jerusalem was destroyed (Jeremiah 40:12 ). The Babylonians set up a government which may or may not have been dependent on the provincial government in Samaria. Jews loyal to the Davidic tradition assassinated Gedaliah, the governor (2 Kings 25:25 ). Then many of the people fled to Egypt (2 Kings 25:26 ; Jeremiah 43:1 ). People remaining in the land continued to worship in the Temple ruins and seek God's word of hope (Lamentations). Many were probably not overjoyed to see Jews return from Babylon claiming land and leadership.
4. Babylon The center of Jewish life shifted to Babylon under such leaders as Ezekiel. Babylon even recognized the royal family of Judah as seen in 2 Kings 25:27 and in recovered Babylonian records. Exiled Jews based their calendar on the exile of King Jehoichin in 597 ( Ezekiel 1:2 ; Ezekiel 33:21 ; Ezekiel 40:1 ). Jehoiachin's grandson, Zerubbabel, led the first exiles back from Babylon in 538 (Ezra 2:2 ; Haggai 1:1 ). Most of the exiles in Babylon probably followed normal Near Eastern practice and became farmers on land owned by the government. Babylonian documents show that eventually some Jews became successful merchants in Babylon. Apparently religious leaders like Ezekiel were able to lead religious meetings (Ezekiel 8:1 ; compare Ezra 8:15-23 ). Correspondence continued between those in Judah and those in Exile (Jeremiah 29:1 ), and Jewish elders gave leadership to the exiles (Jeremiah 29:1 ; Ezekiel 8:1 ; Ezekiel 14:1 ; Ezekiel 20:1 ). 1 Chronicles 1-9 , Ezra, and Nehemiah show that genealogies and family records became very important points of identity for the exiles. People were economically self-sufficient, some even owning slaves (Ezra 2:65 ) and having resources to fund the return to Jerusalem (Ezra 1:6 ; Ezra 2:69 ). Still, many longed for Jerusalem and would not sing the Lord's song in Babylon (Psalm 137:1 ). They joined prophets like Ezekiel in looking for a rebuilt Temple and a restored Jewish people. They laughed at Babylonian gods as sticks of wood left over from the fire (Isaiah 44:9-17 ; Ezra 10:1 ; Isaiah 46:1-2 ,Isaiah 46:1-2,46:6-7 ; Jeremiah 1:16 ; Ezekiel 20:29-32 ). A Babylonian Jewish community was thus established and would exercise strong influence long after Cyrus of Persia permitted Jews to return to Judah. These Jews established their own worship, collected Scriptures, and began interpreting them in the Aramaic paraphrase and explanations which eventually became the Babylonian Talmud, but continued to support Jews in Jerusalem.
5. Egypt Jews fled Jerusalem for Egypt (2 Kings 25:26 ) despite God's directions not to (Jeremiah 42:13-44:30 ). Many Jews apparently became part of the Egyptian army stationed in northern border fortresses to protect against Babylonian invasion. As such, they may have joined Jews who had come to Egypt earlier. Archaeologists have discovered inscriptions at Elephantine in southern Egypt showing a large Jewish army contingent there also. They apparently built a temple there and worshiped Yahweh along with other gods. These military communities eventually disappeared, but Jewish influence in Egypt remained. Finally, a large community in Alexandria established itself and produced the Septuagint, the earliest translation of the Hebrew Bible into Greek.
The Edict of Cyrus in 538 B.C. (2 Chronicles 36:22-23 ; Ezra 1:1-4 ) released the Jews in Babylon to return to their homeland. Though conditions in the homeland were dismal, many Jews did return. The preaching of Haggai and Zechariah (520-519 B.C.) urged these returning captives to rebuild their Temple in Jerusalem. The Temple was completed in 515 B.C., the date which traditionally marks the end of the Babylonian Exile.

Bridgeway Bible Dictionary - Exile
In the Old Testament ‘the exile’, or ‘the captivity’, refers to the period of approximately seventy years that followed Babylon’s conquest of Jerusalem and deportation of the people into captivity in Babylon (2 Kings 24; 2 Kings 25:1-21; Jeremiah 25:11-12; Jeremiah 29:10; Daniel 1:1-4; Ezekiel 1:1-3). (For details of the successive stages of this conquest and deportation see JUDAH, TRIBE AND KINGDOM. For details of life in captivity in Babylon see DANIEL; EZEKIEL.) The exile came to an end after Persia’s conquest of Babylon in 539 BC, when the new ruler gave permission to the captive Jews to return to their homeland (2 Chronicles 36:22-23; Ezra 1:1-4; Isaiah 48:20; see CHRONICLES, BOOKS OF; EZRA).
In the New Testament ‘the exile’ refers to the life of Christians in the present world. Since Christians are considered to be a citizen of heaven, their present life is like that of foreigners or pilgrims in an alien country (Philippians 3:20; Hebrews 13:14; 1 Peter 1:1; 1 Peter 1:17; 1 Peter 2:11; see FOREIGNER).

Life in the Exile meant life in five different geographical areas: Israel, Judah, Assyria, Babylon, and Egypt.

The remnant that survives the Babylonian Exile will ultimately give birth to the new age (4:9-11); those who appeared defeated will become victorious (4:11-13). 9-12), the Lord will bring on it all the curses of the covenant: sickness, sword, and Exile (vv.

Would the success of the Babylonians against Judah not undergird the claim that Marduk, the god of the Babylonians, is really God? Would it not suggest that the Lord, the God of the Judeans, had been defeated by Marduk, the god of the Babylonians? The prophets' response to this crisis was: the tragedy of the Exile was not the result of the power of Marduk against the power of the Lord, a result that would establish Marduk as God. To the contrary, the tragedy of the Exile was the result of Israel's own God using the Babylonians as an instrument of punishment against the Lord's own people since they had violated the terms of the covenant that bound them together. That theological justification for the Exile (see 1619109431_7 ) opened the door for a theological, philosophical position that asserted the existence of only one God who is Lord not only of Israel but also of all the rest of the world
Ezra - A Jewish Exile in Babylon in the reign of Artaxerxes I. He doubtless stood at the head or, at any rate, was a leading figure of a new order which had grown up in the Exile among the Jews of the ‘Golah’ or captivity in Babylonia. Among these Exiles great literary activity apparently prevailed during the later years of the Exile and onwards. The so-called ‘Priestly Code’ which must be regarded as the work of a whole school of writers was formed, or at least the principal part of it, probably between the closing years of the Exile and the arrival of Ezra in Jerusalem (b. ’ Moved by religious zeal, and also, it would seem, with the statesman-like view of making Jerusalem once more the real spiritual metropolis of Judaism, Ezra conceived the idea of Infusing new life and new ideals into the Judæan community, by leading a fresh hand of zealously religious Exiles from Babylonia back to Judæa on a mission of reform
Masona, Bishop of Merida - Eulalia, his persecution at the hands of Leovigild, who sent two Arian bishops, Sunna and Nepopis, at different times, to undermine Masona's influence and oust him from his church, his intercourse with Leovigild at Toledo, where his resistance to the king's demand led to his Exile, and his final restoration to his see after Leovigild's various supernatural warnings. Reccared decided that Sunna should either recant his Arianism or go into Exile. Isidore expressly mentions the Exile of bishops among Leovigild's measures of persecution ( Hist. 491), and it is most likely that Masona was Exiled c
Nathan - One who returned from Exile
Idumaea - In the early part of the Jewish Exile many of the Edomites overran the south of Judaea, and when the Nabataeans, at some time during the Persian period, conquered their own land, many more joined the earlier settlers in South Judaea, and that district became known as Idumaea

Calf Worship - Jeroboam's calves, which his Exile in Egypt familiarized him with, and which he subsequently set up at Dan and Bethel similarly, were not set up to oppose Jehovah's worship, but to oppose His worship by Jeroboam's subjects at Jerusalem, lest they should thereby be alienated from him (1 Kings 12:26-29). In Hosea 14:2 we read "calves of our lips": instead of calves which we can no longer offer in our Exile, we present praises of our lips; so Hebrews 13:15
Reproach - The destruction of Jerusalem and the Exile brought Judah to the state of “reproach”: “O Lord, according to all thy righteousness, I beseech thee, let thine anger and thy fury be turned away from thy city Jerusalem, thy holy mountain: because for our sins, and for the iniquities of our fathers, Jerusalem and thy people are become a reproach to all that are about us” ( Exile, or enmity, the psalmist prayed for deliverance from the “reproach”: “Remove from me reproach and contempt; for I have kept thy testimonies” ( Idolatry - It was their great national sin, which was only effectually rebuked by the Babylonian Exile. That Exile finally purified the Jews of all idolatrous tendencies
Rachel - Besides the reference to the Babylonian Exile of Rachel's sons, the Holy Spirit foreshadowed Messiah's Exile to Egypt, and the accompanying desolation caused near Rachel's tomb by Herod's massacre, to the grief of Benjamite mothers who had "sons of sorrow," as Rachel's son proved to her. were dead (Genesis 42:13), does not apply so strictly to the Babylonian Exiles as it does to Messiah and His people, past, present, and future. The singular too suits Messiah going to Exile in Egypt, Rachel's chief object of lamentation

These provinces, which thou threatenest, but which the arm of the Lord protects; this country, which thou fillest with refugees, but fugitives animated with love; those walls, which contain a thousand martyrs of thy making, but whom religion renders victorious, all these yet resound benedictions in thy favour
Gregorius Baeticus, Saint, Bishop of Eliberi - Our authority for this is a letter to Gregorius by Eusebius of Vercellae from his Exile in the Thebaid (printed among the works of St. 25, he considers that Gregorius, after Lucifer's return from Exile in 362, visited him in Sardinia; and he identifies with Gregorius the bishop mentioned in c

63-400 A. Thus, Jehoiachin was taken into Exile in 597 when Nebuchadrezzar conquered Jerusalem. Thus the kingdom of Judah was ended, and the Babylonian Exile (597/587-539/538) initiated. ...
The Babylonian Exile (Ezekiel, Isaiah 40–55 ) The Babylonian Exile was initiated in 597 by the initial deportation of Jerusalemites to Babylon, with additional deportations in 587,582 (Jeremiah 52:15 ). ...
The Babylonian Exile, in spite of its relative brevity, was the benchmark in the religious development of the people. Most importantly, during and just following the Exile the Torah was drawn essentially into its present form. ...
The prophecies of Isaiah 40-55 spoke to conditions near the end of the Babylonian Exile (about 540), preparing the people for a second Exodus ( Isaiah 40:1 ) and impressing upon them their role as the servant people of Yahweh (Isaiah 42:1-4 ; Isaiah 49:1-6 ; Isaiah 50:4-9 ; Isaiah 52:13-53:12 ). ...
During the Exile an institution arose which was to have crucial influence on the future of Judaism, the synagogue. In early 538 Cyrus issued a decree (Ezra 1:2-4 ; Ezra 6:3-5 ) permitting the Exiles to return home. Obadiah's brief message was a hymn of hate against the Edomites, who had assumed Judah's lands and homes when the people were taken into Exile
Zacharias - Only four of these courses or "families" of the priests returned from the Exile (Ezra 2:36-39 ); but they were then re-distributed under the old designations
Geba - At some period Geba's inhabitants were forced to move to Manahath (1 Chronicles 8:6 ), perhaps when the tribe of Benjamin first settled there or during the Exile. Exiles returned to Geba under Zerubbabel (Ezra 2:26 )
Mordecai - One who returned from Exile
Sepharvaim - Sepharvaim? have they (the gods of Hamath and Sepharvaim) delivered Samaria out of my hand?" How just the retribution in kind, that Israel having chosen the gods of Hamath and Sepharvaim should be sent to Hamath and Sepharvaim as their place of Exile, and that the people of Hamath and Sepharvaim should be sent to the land of Israel to replace the Israelites! (Proverbs 1:31; Jeremiah 2:19)
Jerahmeel - of Palestine, with which David cultivated friendly relations during his Exile ( 1 Samuel 27:10 ; 1 Samuel 30:29 )
Joppa - , but never before the Exile in Israelite hands, being in Philistine territory
Lots, Casting - The people resorted to it for various purposes on the return from Exile
Synagogue - Synagogues were instituted after the Exile by Ezra and Nehemiah
Jeiel - One of early members of tribe of Judah to return from Babylonian Exile (1 Chronicles 9:6 )
Phinehas - After the Exile a clan of priests, ‘the sons of Phinehas,’ claimed descent from him ( Ezra 8:2 [3])
Adullam - It was rebuilt or fortified by Rehoboam, 2 Chronicles 11:7 ; and was dwelt in by some who returned from Exile
Porphyrius, Patriarch of Antioch - Flavian's death having occurred almost contemporaneously with Chrysostom's Exile, it became vitally important to the anti-Flavian cabal to have the vacant throne of Antioch filled with a man who would carry out their designs for the complete crushing of Flavian's adherents. His efforts to obtain the recognition of the Antiochenes proving fruitless, while Chrysostom's spiritual power in Exile became the greater for all his efforts to crush it, Porphyry's exasperation drove him to take vengeance on Chrysostom
Kings, 1 And 2 - in an attempt to explain to the Jews of the Exile why their nation had been overthrown by foreign powers even though they were the people of God. The most serious of those consequences would be that they would no longer be as numerous as the stars of the heavens (Deuteronomy 28:62-63 ; see Genesis 13:14-18 ; Genesis 15:1-6 ), and they would be lead into Exile retracing the route of the Exodus (Deuteronomy 28:32 ,Deuteronomy 28:32,28:36-46 ,Deuteronomy 28:1:63-68 ). When the people of Israel departed from God's commandment, they suffered defeat, reduction of their population, severe suffering, and Exile. The Northern Kingdom of Israel suffered defeat and Exile at the hands of the Assyrians in 722 B. The prophet went on to speak of the defeat and Exile that would eventually come because of the sin of Manasseh (2 Kings 21:13-15 ; see 2 Kings 23:26-27 ; 2 Kings 24:1-7 ; compare 2 Kings 17:19-20 ). ...
Hope for the Future The very fact that the Books of Kings were written indicates that the writer saw that Israel, even though suffering in the Exile, could learn from their past and begin to live in a way more pleasing to God. Perhaps the writer was encouraging the Exiles with the possibility that God would bless them again and raise Israel above all peoples ( Deuteronomy 28:1 ) just as Jehoiachin was given preference above other prisoners in captivity (2 Kings 25:28 )
Joel - ...
Two approximate dates generally are given as the possible times of the authorship of the book, either before the Exile around the time of the boy-king Joash (about 836-796 B. ) or after the return from Exile (about 500-400 B. The returning Exiles, comprising a small group in Jerusalem, centered their worship in the Temple. After the Exile, there would be no need for announcing the coming destruction of Assyria and Babylon. In addition, the style and language reflects the period after the Exile when the prophetic emphasis was beginning to give way to the apocalyptic
Zechariah, Book of - ...
When the book was written In 538, Cyrus the Great, emperor of the Persian Empire, issued an edict (Ezra 1:2-4 ; Ezra 6:3-5 ) allowing the Jews in Exile in Babylon to return to Jerusalem. Over the next two decades, many Exiles took advantage of Persian leniency, returned home, and began to reestablish life in Jerusalem or Judah. Apparently, an effort was made to begin rebuilding the Temple under an official named Sheshbazzar (Ezra 5:14-16 ) and perhaps Zerubabel (Ezra 3:1-13 ; Zechariah 4:9 ), but the work stopped due to opposition from persons who had not been in Exile and local officials. They had brought the Exile upon themselves. The visions conclude with a call to Exiles to return home from Babylon. (Was theft an especially acute problem in the poor, reduced state of Judah after the Exile?) In the seventh vision (Zechariah 5:5-11 ), Zechariah saw an ephah, in this case a container with a heavy, lead cover. Matthew 9:1 through 11 depict God's deliverance of His people in terms of the victory of God and His Messiah over the neighboring peoples, including the Greeks ( Zechariah 9:1-10:7 ), the return of the Exiles (Zechariah 10:6-12 ), and the punishment of the wicked leaders of Judah (Zechariah 11:4-17 )
Captivity - Used in Scripture for compulsory Exile. Jeremiah had recommended the Jews to settle quietly in the land of their Exile. Jeremiah, Ezekiel (who died after 27 years' Exile at least, Ezekiel 29:17), and Daniel, and some of the Psalms (e. 137) give a general view of the state of the whole people in their Exile. All we know is, some blended with the Jews, as Anna of Asher (Luke 2:36), Saul or Paul of Benjamin (Philippians 3:5); some with the Samaritans (Ezra 6:21; John 4:12); many, staying in their land of Exile, founded colonies in the E. The prayer, the 10th of the Shemoneh Esre, is still offered by the Jews: "Sound the great trumpet for our deliverance, lift up a banner for the gathering of our Exiles, and unite us all together from the four ends of the earth!" evidently alluding to Isaiah 11:12; Isaiah 27:13; Psalms 106:47

Apocalypse - It was written either during the persecution of Nero (54-68) or of Domitian (90-94), during Saint John's Exile at Patmos, to encourage the persecuted Christians by foretelling the fall of Rome as an anti-Christian power and the trials but complete victory of the Church

Patroclus, Bishop of Arles - In 425 Patroclus was ordered by Theodosius to assemble for discussion the Gallic bishops who professed the Pelagian and Celestian heresies, the emperor decreeing Exile for such as should not recant within 20 days
Scribes - Now, after the Exile, the task being to hold together the parts of a nation widely scattered and lacking the unifying power of a common and sacred fatherland, the Mosaic Torah, the Divine Law for Israel, became, in course of time, the moral and spiritual constitution of Israel, its code of duty, the fabric of its right. As we have seen, the situation of the Jews in the centuries after the Exile called for a new type of man
Kohath, Kohathites - These genealogies must have been in the making before the Exile, but were afterwards stereotyped and reduced to system by the priestly school. The importance of these families after the Exile was small, with the exception of the priests who traced their descent from Aaron
Patmos - John was Exiled to Patmos under Domitian in a. The meaning of the phrase is much disputed, some holding that it expresses the human cause, others the over-ruling Divine purpose, of his Exile. ’ The story of his Exile is outlined in two phrases: ‘I was in the isle … I was in the Spirit’ (Revelation 1:9-10)
Valerianus, Emperor - Under his influence Valerian ordered those who did not belong to the religion of Rome at least to render outward signs of conformity to it under pain of Exile.

Joshua the Son of Jehozadak - ...
Joint leadership...
Under the leadership of Zerubbabel and Joshua, the returned Exiles set up the altar soon after they arrived in Jerusalem (Ezra 3:1-2). Standing beside Joshua was Satan, ready to make the accusation that the people were unclean because of their long Exile in idolatrous Babylon
Paulus Edessenus - Paul refused, and took sanctuary in his baptistery; whence he was dragged by Patricius and sentenced to be Exiled to Seleucia. ...
Paul translated, no doubt in his days of Exile, the Greek hymns of Severus and other Monophysite writers, and arranged them so as to form a Syriac hymnal
Jews, Judaism - Isaiah referred to "both houses of Israel" (8:14), and Jeremiah, in prophetic speech intended for those in Exile, referred to Judah as the "Virgin Israel" (31:21). Ezekiel also refers to the Exiled community in Babylonia as "the house of Israel" (3:1) and as the "people of Israel" (4:13). Other postexilic writers also employed the expression "Israel" in reference to the nonpolitical, cultic community of the Exiled people of Judah (Ezra 2:70 ; Nehemiah 7:73 ). In Babylonia, those Exiled from the kingdom of Judah adapted the Israelite religion, which had been bound to territory and temple, transforming Yahwehism into a universalistic early Judaism. The first Jews to return from the Babylonian Exile to Jerusalem rebuilt the temple; however, the religious practices of the next generation did not conform to the vision of Judaism that the Babylonian Jewish community held. The demise of the kingdom and the deportation into Exile of its leaders and much of its population was the direct result of ill-conceived international politics, domestic inequities and injustice, and religious deviation (2 Chronicles 36:13-20 ). Yet among the deportees was the remnant of the faithful who saved the precious scrolls that comprise the bulk of Bible and carried them into Exile with them. And in Exile the people of Judah became the Jews, the people of the Book, transforming the territorial temple-centered religion of their forefathers into a uNIVersal religion devoted to the worship of the one true God. Prophetic promises and messianic hope based on the study of God's Word among those in Exile made possible the remnant that returned to rebuild temple and town, as God had promised through the prophet Jeremiah (25:11; 29:10-14)
Shemaiah - False prophet among Babylonian Exiles who opposed Jeremiah's word (Jeremiah 29:24-32 ). Head of a family that returned with Ezra from Babylonian Exile about 458 B

Morning - There was no exact division of the day into parts among the Jews until after the Exile
Groaning - Not creation’s physical sufferings under the bondage of corruption, but her ‘earnest expectation’ of deliverance from it, creates the sense of almost intolerable strain; the ‘firstfruits of the Spirit’ for the moment intensify the burden of the flesh; the deepest groanings of the saint arise from his sense of Exile, from his ‘longing to be clothed upon with his habitation from heaven’ (2 Corinthians 5:2)
Azariah - One who returned from Exile, Nehemiah 7:7 : supposed, as in the margin , to be the same as SERAIAHin Ezra 2:2

Ear - After the Exile, the people of God were to experience a spiritual awakening and new sensitivity to God’s Word which, in the words of Isaiah, is to be compared to the opening of the “ears” ( Elder - During the Exile the ‘elders’ are the centre of the people’s life ( Jeremiah 29:1 , Ezekiel 8:1 ; Ezekiel 14:1 ; Ezekiel 20:1 , Ezra 5:9 ff; Ezra 6:7 ff
Nehemiah - This voluntary Exile of a number of discontented priests may have given occasion to the building of the temple on Mount Gerizim, and the establishment of the Samaritan worship

Tribes - After the return from the Exile many members of other tribes probably came to Jerusalem along with Jews strictly so called, i. Most of these returned Exiles came to be regarded as members of the tribes of Judah or Benjamin, although some may have been able to trace their descent from a distinguished member of another tribe, and others determined their tribe from the locality which they left at the Exile
Domitianus, the Emperor - 27) how Paula visited Pontia on her way to Jerusalem, as already an object of reverence, and saw the three cells in which Domitilla and her two eunuchs Achilleus and Nereus had lived during their Exile. 5) of Domitian's conduct towards the church, describes him as only attempting a persecution, and then, thinking better of it, recalling those whom he had condemned to Exile
Hilarius (7) Pictaviensis, Saint - Many even of those who had leant towards Arianism now threw in their lot with Hilary, who received them on condition that they should be approved by the confessors then suffering Exile. During this Exile of somewhat more than three years Hilary had a good deal of liberty and much enforced leisure. ...
The fourth year (359) of Hilary's Exile witnessed the council of Rimini in the West and that of Seleucia in the East. —This address, probably Hilary's earliest extant composition, is a petition to the emperor—evidently written before Hilary's Exile, at the close of 355 or early in 356—for toleration for the orthodox in Gaul against the persecution of Arian bishops and laymen. —This second address is subsequent to Hilary's Exile, having been presented to the emperor in 360. He would gladly meet the man whom he regards as the author of his Exile, Saturninus, bp. It is a letter from Hilary, an Exile in Phrygia, to his brother-bishops in Gaul, who had asked for an explanation of the numerous professions of faith which the Orientals seemed to be putting forth. Here comes in that remarkable statement, that he had never, before his Exile, heard the Nicene Creed, but had made it out for himself from the Gospels and other books of N. Matthew, his confessorship as shewn in his Exile, did not save Hilary from suspicion. —Hilary, during his Exile, learnt that there was some prospect of his daughter Abra, though only in her 13th year, being sought in marriage

David with characteristic generosity said to Ittai: "Wherefore goest thou also with me? return to thy place, and abide with the king (not that David recognizes Absalom as king, but he means 'with whoever shall prove king,' with the king de facto; whether he be rightful king you as a recent settler here are not called on to decide), for thou art a stranger (not an Israelite) and also an Exile (not yet having a fixed fatherland)

Galilee - ...
After the return of the Jews from the Exile, the population was concentrated for the greater part in Judæa, and the northern parts of Palestine were left to the descendants of the settlers established by Assyria. There was the native Jewish element, grafted no doubt on a substratum of the Assyrian settlers and other immigrants, whose intrusion dated from the Israelite Exile with probably yet a lower stratum, stretching back to the days of the Canaanites

Proterius, Saint, Patriarch of Alexandria - Four or five bishops and a few monks appear to have actively supported them, and to have been included in their condemnation and in the imperial sentence of Exile which followed ( Ep. ) Even after Dioscorus died in Exile Proterius was ignored and disclaimed, and knew that he was the object of a hatred that was biding its time, and "during the greater part of his pontificate," as Liberatus tells us, depended for safety on a military guard
Athanasius, Archbishop of Alexandria - The life of Athanasius divides itself naturally into seven sections, respectively terminated by (1) his consecration; (2) his first Exile; (3) his second Exile; (4) his second return; (5) his third Exile; (6) his fourth Exile; (7) his death. ...
(2) From his Consecration (326) to his First Exile (336). After the Nicene council, Constantine had become a zealot for orthodoxy, and Eusebius of Nicomedia had been Exiled. The emperor cut short Athanasius's defence with a show of indignation; and, perhaps not from real belief in the charge, but by way of getting rid of the case and silencing the archbishop's enemies in his own interest, banished him to the distant city of Trier or Trèves, the seat of government of his eldest son Constantine, who received the Exile with much kindness, in Feb. ...
(3) From his First Exile (336) to his Second (340). ...
(4) From his Second Exile (340) to his Second Return (346). ( a ) The Latin church, which became his "scholar" as well as his "loyal partisan," was confirmed by the spell of his master-mind "in its adhesion to orthodoxy, although it did not imbibe from him the theological spirit"; and (b ) when Gibbon says that "Athanasius introduced into Rome the knowledge and practice of the monastic life," he records the origination of a vast European movement, and represents the great Alexandrian Exile as the spiritual ancestor of Benedict, of Bernard, and of the countless founders and reformers of "religious" communities in the West. Orthodox bishops were scourged and imprisoned; Potammon never recovered from his stripes; Sarapammon, another confessor-bishop, was Exiled (Hist. 22), and employed six "counts" to write encouragingly to the Exile; and Athanasius, after receiving these letters at Aquileia, made up his mind, at last, to act on those assurances; but not until Constantius could tell Constans that he had been "expecting Athanasius for a year
Eusebius (60), Bishop of Nicomedia - " Sozomen apparently makes this refusal to sign on the part of Eusebius and Theognis to have been the reason or occasion of their own Exile and of the filling up by Constantine of their respective sees with Amphion and Chrestus. He adds according to his editor that they did this under the direction of Constantina the sister of Constantine; and further he relates that "Secundus when sent into Exile reproached Eusebius for having signed saying that he did so in order to avoid going into Exile and that Secundus expressed a confident hope that Eusebius would shortly be Exiled an event which took place three months after the council. This pertinacity is suggested by Constantine as the actuating cause and occasion of his Exile. So far from opposing any of the decrees enacted in your holy synod, we assent to all of them—not because we are wearied of Exile, but because we wish to avert all suspicion of heresy. The accused having justified himself and having been recalled from Exile, . Are we to believe these writers against the testimony of Sozomen and Socrates, who expressly give a consistent representation undoubtedly more favourable to Eusebius?...
The most powerful argument of De Broglie and others against the genuineness of the letter, as being written from the Exile of Eusebius, is the silence of Athanasius, who never uses it to shew the identity of the position and sentiments of Arius and Eusebius. The upshot was that through this, and other vamped-up charges of disrespect to the emperor's mother, Eustathius was deposed and Exiled by the Eusebians. While Athanasius was in Exile Eusebius and his party impeached Marcellus of Ancyra for refusing to appear at the council of Dedication at Jerusalem, a. ...
The cruel injustice to which Athanasius was subjected by long Exile is freely attributed to Eusebius, as its mainspring and constant instigator
Jeremiah, Theology of - A trio of disasters—sword, famine, and plague—to which is added Exile, surfaces frequently, in whole or in part (14:12,16, 18; 15:2; 16:4; 44:12-13,27).

What pros- pects has the remnant that becomes, as in the Exile, the carrier of God's promise? The prospect was for the Exiles to be gathered together and to return to the homeland (Jeremiah 23:3 ; 31:7-9 ; Micah 2:12-13 ; 4:6-7 ). The exodus from the Exile, like the exodus from Egypt, was accompanied with miracles (Isaiah 11:11-16 )

The “people of the land” are also portrayed as “the poor of the land” who remained in Jerusalem during the Babylonian Exile (2 Kings 24:14 ; 2 Kings 25:12 ).

Targum - It was made professedly because the Jews who returned from Exile knew that language well
Eusebius, Bishop of Rome - It would seem that, on the cessation of Diocletian's persecution, the church there was rent into two parties on the subject of the terms of readmission of the lapsed to communion: that one Heraclius headed a party who were for readmission without the penitential discipline insisted on by Eusebius; that the consequent tumults and bloodshed caused "the tyrant" Maxentius to interpose and banish the leaders of both factions; and that Eusebius, dying during his Exile in Sicily, thus obtained the name of martyr

Euphemius, Patriarch of Constantinople - ...
Meanwhile Euphemius, fearing for his life, retired to the baptistery, and refused to go out until Macedonius had promised on the word of the emperor that no violence should be done him when they conducted him to Exile. After some conversation, Macedonius (himself to follow Euphemius to the very same place of Exile under the same emperor) handed to him the proceeds of a loan he had raised for his expenses. Elias, metropolitan of Jerusalem, himself afterwards expelled from his see by Anastasius, stood stoutly by Euphemius at the time of his Exile, declaring against the legality of his sentence (Cyrillus, Vita S
Wages - This "Mesopotamian Exile" is a prelude to Israel's oppressive sojourn in Egypt, where a tyrannical Pharaoh pays her the "wages" of a slave (Exodus 1-3 ).

Genseric, King of the Vandals - The bishops and noble laity were stripped of their possessions and offered the alternative of slavery or Exile. Genseric ordered funeral processions of the Catholics to be conducted in silence and sent the remainder of the clergy into Exile.

Dindorf), and, at Leo's entreaty, allowed the churches of Carthage to be reopened and the Exiled bishops and clergy to return
New Covenant - Jeremiah 31:31-34 falls into the context of the promise of the future regathering of Israel and its restoration to the land, which Jeremiah 31:31-3469 says will take place after seventy years of Exile. In the same work (3:5-7) it is implied that this new possibility of obedience was given to the Exiles even before the restoration. Because of their disobedience, the members of the covenant of the forefathers came under the wrath of God, which culminated in the Exile; in contrast God made a covenant forever with the remnant who held fast to the commandments, revealing to them the hidden things in which Israel went astray (3:10-14). It is not so much that there exists in God's purposes two different covenants, but rather one covenant with two different phases: a preliminary phase ending in failure and an eschatological phase ending in God's final victory over all wickedness, beginning at some point after the Exile
Command, Commandment - Disobedience would result in terror, illness, oppression, infertility, Exile, curses, and rebuke (Leviticus 26:14-20 ; Deuteronomy 28:15-68 ; Psalm 119:21 )

Blasphemy - A contempt of God was shown by the Babylonians during the Exile, as they continually ridiculed God (Isaiah 52:5 )
Beer-Sheba - (bee' uhr-sshee' baw) Beer-sheba and its surrounding area factors significantly in the Old Testament from the earliest sojourns of the patriarchs (Genesis 21:1 ; Genesis 22:1 ; Genesis 26:1 ) to the return of the Hebrew Exiles with Nehemiah (Nehemiah 11:27 ,Nehemiah 11:27,11:30 ). After the punitive Exile of Judah, the people returned to Beer-sheba and its surrounding satellite towns with Nehemiah in the fifth century (Nehemiah 11:27 ,Nehemiah 11:27,11:30 )

Liberius, Bishop of Rome - The pope's three legates were among the few who refused and were condemned to Exile (see Sulp. ) to all the Exiled confessors, encouraging them, and expressing his expectation of soon suffering like them. From the former authorities we learn that immediately after the Exile of Liberius all the clergy, including the deacon FELIX (archdeacon according to Marcellinus and Faustus), swore before the people to accept no other bishop while Liberius lived. Two years after the Exile of Liberius (a. (Once more, and a third time, anathema to thee, prevaricator Liberius! ) Seeing that you now perceive me to be in agreement with you in all things, I have thought it right to beseech your holinesses to deign by your common counsel and efforts to labour for my release from Exile and my restoration to the see divinely entrusted to me. certain great bishops] not only supported me with arguments, but also endured Exile; among them being Liberius of Rome. For, if he did not endure the affliction of his Exile to the end, nevertheless he remained in banishment for two years, knowing the conspiracy against me" ( Apol
Advent (2) - ...
During the period of the Exile, with the fall of the monarchy and the collapse of the expectations based upon it, the figure of the victorious and righteous king was thrown into the background; yet the prospect of a future glorious manifestation of Divine mercy, rescuing the people from their iniquities and miseries, kept its hold on susceptible minds (Isaiah 55:5; Isaiah 60:1-8). In those prophecies of the Exile, Jehovah Himself is set forth as the true and ever-living King of Israel; and collective Israel, the nation regarded poetic ally as an individual, is conceived as the Anointed Servant of Jehovah, who, amid manifold afflictions, is to bear witness for Jehovah, and be the medium of accomplishing His saving purpose for mankind. On the return from the Exile the hope of salvation through a Davidic kingship revived, as is evident from the prophetic utterances of Haggai (Haggai 2:22-23) and Zechariah (Zechariah 3:8; Zechariah 6:12); but in Malachi’s day it had again disappeared. ; and Cheyne, Jewish Religious Life after the Exile
Hosea, Theology of - Judgment and Exile would come but restoration and future hope were always in sight. Just as an adulteress was stripped naked and expelled from her house (2:3,10) so too the land would be denuded of God's blessings (2:9-12; 9:2) and its people sent into Exile (5:14; 9:15-17). Gomer's adulterous affairs provided penetrating images of Israel's apostasy and revealed the hurt and disaster associated with idolatryhurt suffered by God and disaster suffered by the people since the eventual outcome led to Exile and destruction
Proselyte - Up to the time of the Exile and for some time after, the attitude of the Hebrews towards ‘strangers’ was passive: they did not invite their presence into their community, and did not encourage them to be sharers of their faith. It does not appear that the Hebrews have ever been so powerfully moved towards the peoples lying in darkness as in this time subsequent to the Exile (Harnack, op. ...
This spiritual enthusiasm for God’s honour and man’s salvation continued till about the time of the Maccabees, when the tenderer springs of the Jewish spirit were dried up, and the sword became the instrument of national idealism, and whole cities and tribes were given the option of circumcision or Exile, if not slaughter ( 1Ma 2:46 ; 1Ma 13:48 ; 1Ma 14:14 ; 1Ma 14:36 ; Jos

Exile and Restoration . , and Judah's history dips into a hiatus called the Exile with the fall of Jerusalem in 586 b. In these national crises, God is seen as a God of judgment and wrath, but in the return from Exile and the restoration, the Old Testament presents him as the God of compassion and salvation. The sins of Israel had earned God's just punishment, which came ultimately in the form of conquest and the Exile of Israel (722 b. God's actions to restore Judah after the Exile to Babylonia would be as mighty and compassionate as his deliverance of their ancestors from Egypt; that is, he would perform a second exodus (Isaiah 35 ; 45 )

Constantius ii, Son of Constantius - Other Exiled bishops were likewise restored. He sent a conciliatory mission to Africa, but his bounty was rudely refused by that Donatus who was now at the head of the sect—himself a secret Arian as well as a violent schismatic—with the famous phrase, "Quid est imperatori cum ecclesiâ?" The turbulence of the Circumcellions provoked the so-called "Macarian Persecution"; some of the schismatics were put to death, others committed suicide, others were Exiled, and so for a time union seemed to be produced. Soon after followed the Exile of Liberius, and in 355 that of Hosius. ...
In the church worse things were yet to come: the fall of Hosius, who accepted the creed of the second council of Sirmium, then that of Liberius, the first after torture and severe imprisonment, the second after two years of melancholy Exile, both in 357. In 357 the emperor confirmed all the privileges granted to the church of Rome, at that time under the emperor's nominee, Felix, whilst Liberius was in Exile
Isaiah - The setting of these chapters is incontestably that of the later years of the Babylonian Exile when Cyrus (Isaiah 44:28 ; Isaiah 45:1 ) was beginning his conquests which would ultimately overthrow the Babylonian power (550 B. , and a considerable segment of the upper classes had been forcibly Exiled to Babylon. The writer hailed Cyrus as the shepherd of Yahweh who would build Jerusalem and set the Exiles free (Isaiah 44:26-45:1 ). ) and his decree of liberation for the Jewish Exiles were events too joyous to recount. But what of the long, arduous journey through the desert with its multiplied dangers? The prophetic voice assured the Exiles that God would prepare a level highway for their journey, provide for their sustenance, and lead them back to their homeland (Isaiah 40:1 ). The Exiles were assured of divine pardon, comforted in every major problem area, and promised the restoration of Zion and its Temple. The prophetic voice of Isaiah 40-55 affirmed the purpose of God in the dark days of the Babylonian Exile. Against the gloom of Exile, the prophet portrayed the One Sovereign God, Creator, incomparable, unfailing, the Lord of history. ...
The prophetic announcement disclosed the movement of God in history—the Exile was over. The Persians were about to take over the Babylonian power; they would be trustworthy and friendly to the Exiles. The difficulties of the journey would be provided for by the God who programmed the Exodus and would once more duplicate that performance in the release of the Exiles from Babylonian tyranny. Assured of divine forgiveness and comforted in their grief, the Exiles were exhorted to identify with their ancient role in the blessing of the earth's population through the dissemination of the religion through which the world would be blessed (Genesis 12:3 )

Within the context of predicting comfort for Israelthe return to the land of those in Exile in BabylonIsaiah unfolds a scene of redemption that will only be fully realized at the end of time. To speak of restoration, redemption, and salvation in the sight of all the nations and all the ends of the earth points us beyond the return from Exile to full salvation at the end of time (52:10). It is possible to view the messenger's message and mission as dealing only with the external, physical, socioeconomic condition of the Exile and the emotional trauma it has caused. When God acts to save and restore Israel he will relieve physical oppression by release from Exile and an establishment of justice in Messiah's reign (11:4; 29:18-19; 49:13)
Isaiah, Book of - (1) Much of the literary process just referred to lies after the Exile. 40 55 were not written till the last years of the Exile; chs. 1 39 and 40 66 cannot therefore fall before the close of the Exile, and, as shown above, it need not, so far as the external evidence is concerned, fall much before b. 1 39, by the inclusion of the appendix 36 39, cannot be placed earlier than the Exile, and should probably be placed later
Synagogue - The synagogue is a new creation for which the Exile alone offered the conditions (see Wellhausen, Isr. In place of the priesthood, whose exclusive domain was the Temple with its sacrificial cult, a new class of men in the Exile voiced the needs of the people, accentuating the significance of prayer and song as the more spiritual elements of the Divine service, and at the same time appealed to the people, like the prophets of old, by words of warning and consolation, offering public instruction through the Word of God, whether spoken or read. Septuagint to Isaiah 60:7) indicates the existence of places for devotional assemblies of the people in the Exile. King Solomon’s dedication prayer, which was composed in the Exile (1 Kings 8:46 ff. ), also shows that the Exiled Jews prayed ‘in the land of the enemy’ with their faces turned towards Jerusalem, exactly as did Daniel (Daniel 6:10). Deuteronomy 6:4-94 Daniel 8:2), the Sabbath, which assumed a higher meaning in the Exile (see Wellhausen, loc
Cain (1) - ...
Exile from the original seat of the human family and the scene of God's manifestations was the sentence, a mild one, in consonance with the mild administration of the divine government before the flood. In Nod ("exile") he built a city and named it from his son Enoch (high dedication); the first step in the founding of the spiritual world city upon which the carnal fix their affections as their lasting home, instead of seeking the heavenly city and continuing pilgrims on earth (Psalms 49:11; Hebrews 11:10-16), To make up for his loss of unity in the fellowship of God and His people, Cain creates for himself and his an earthly center of unity
Aetius, Arian Sect Founder And Head - The influence of Ursacius and Valens procured his recall; but he was soon driven again into Exile. 361, put an end to Aetius's Exile
Callistus, Pope - Döllinger supposes that, while claiming his debts at the hands of members of the Jewish synagogue, his zeal for religion impelled him to bear witness for Christ, and that thus his Exile to Sardinia was a species of martyrdom for Christianity (Döllinger, Hippolytus u. The date of his Exile is proximately fixed, since Fuscianus served the office of praefectus urbi between a
Salvation, Saviour - External blessings, deliverance from enemies, return from Exile, are still hoped for, but the main stress is laid on a changed heart, forgiveness, restoration to God’s favour, righteousness
Altar - ) ...
In the temple built after the Exile the altar was restored
Jonah - ...
Some have regarded the book as an allegory: Jonah then stands for Israel swallowed in Exile by the Babylonian sea monster (compare Jeremiah 51:34 , Jeremiah 51:44 )
Persecution in the Bible - The Bible gives special attention to Israel's fate in Egypt (Exodus 1-3 ) and in the Exile (Psalm 137:1 )

Humble (Self) - Ultimately the Exile came, and the people were humbled by the Babylonians
am ha'Arez - At the Exile we are told ‘none were left save the very poor of the people of the land’ (רַלַח עַם חָאָרָץ 2 Kings 24:14). Hence at the Return both Ezra and Nehemiah demanded a complete separation (Ezra 9:1; Ezra 9:12, Nehemiah 10:28-31) between the returned Exiles who observed the Law strictly, and those settlers who constituted ‘the people of the land
Caesarius, Bishop of Chrysostom - The intelligence caused great grief to Chrysostom, then in Exile at Cucusus, who sent him this letter to refute the Apollinarian heresy
Power - Those who returned from the Exile gave willingly out of their riches (kôach) to the building fund of the temple (Ezra 2:69)
Redemption - But, as Grotius has fully shown, by reference to the use of the words both in sacred and profane writers, redemption signifies not merely "the liberation of captives," but deliverance from Exile, death, and every other evil from which we may be freed; and λυτρον signifies every thing which satisfies another, so as to effect this deliverance
Joannes Talaia, Bishop of Nola - The Monophysites elected Peter Mongus, then in Exile (Liberat. On hearing of his arrival Anastasius at once ordered him to be Exiled, and John made his escape and returned to Rome (Theophan
Macedonius, Bishop of Constantinople. - Philip the prefect executed the fresh orders of the emperor in hurrying Paul into Exile to Thessalonica, and in reinstating Macedonius, but not without bloodshed (Socr. 350) placed the East under the sole control of Constantius, and Paul was at once Exiled
Persecution - -It is universally admitted that the Exile introduced a new epoch in the history of the Jew. The religious leaders of the new age believed that the Exile was the judgment announced by their pre-Exilic predecessors. It was during the Exile in Babylon that the Jew thoroughly mastered the prophetic doctrine of the uniqueness of Jahweh and of His religion. In Exile the Jew learnt how to resist the pressure of a hostile environment, and the lesson stood him in good stead throughout the post-Exilic period, for the position of Judah in the Semitic world was precisely the position of the Exiles in Babylon. The Book of Daniel, which purports to describe the situation of the Jew in Exile, could not be otherwise than a powerful appeal to Judah in the 2nd cent. to imitate the heroes of the Exile and remain loyal to her ancestral faith and religion
Isaiah - He is no longer the godly politician taking part in public life in vindication of the truth, but is far away in the spirit amidst the Babylonian Exiles whom he cheers. The contemporary Micah (Micah 4:8-10) foretells the same Exile in Babylon and the return from it, so that it is no objection to the genuineness of Isaiah 40-66, that herein Isaiah passes from Assyria to the restoration from Babylon much more than a century later. ...
Moses' general prophecy (Leviticus 26:33; Deuteronomy 28:64) had assumed more definiteness in Ahijah's specification of the direction of the Exile, "beyond the river," in Jeroboam's time 1 Kings 14:15), and Amos 5:27, "beyond Damascus"; and now the place is defined, Babylon. The former part ends with the Babylonian Exile (Isaiah 39:6); the latter part begins with the deliverance from it, to remove the deep gloom which the prophecy of the captivity caused to all who looked for redemption in Israel. On the other hand Isaiah announces the captivity in Babylon when as yet it was but a secondrate power and moreover in alliance with Judah, and further the return of the Exiles. Israel in the Babylonian Exile, suffering as God's representative amidst pagan conquerors, is viewed as "the servant of Jehovah"; but as the mass of Jews were suffering for their sins the idea of "servant of Jehovah" limited itself to the elect, the holy seed of Israel's future
Kings, First And Second, Theology of - ...
Theological Emphasis The structure of Kings is somewhat similar to that of Judges in that it discusses the cyclical rise and fall of states and leaders (from the accession of Solomon to the Exile). ...
The Judgment of God One of the immediate purposes of Kings is to explain how the Exile came about and to express the idea that God had compelling reasons for judgment. Ackroyd, Exile and Restoration: A Survey of Hebrew Thought of the Sixth Century b
Apocrypha - It tells how Zerubbabel was allowed to lead the Exiles back to Palestine. The story is of a family carried into Exile in Assyria when Israel was destroyed. In this book Nebuchadnezzar, the king of the Assyrians, reigned at the time the Jews returned from Exile. This shows it is not historically accurate, for Cyrus of Persia was king when the Jews returned from Exile (538 B. As the basis for his work, the author evidently used Jeremiah 29:1-23 , in which Jeremiah did write a letter to the Exiles
Flavianus (4) i, Bishop of Antioch - A council at Alexandria, early in 362, wisely advised that Paulinus and his flock should unite with Meletius, who had now returned from Exile; but the precipitancy of Lucifer of Cagliari perpetuated the schism by ordaining Paulinus bishop. The Exiles were recalled, and Meletius resumed charge of his flock. Flavian lived long enough to see the deposition and Exile of Chrysostom, against which he protested with his last breath

Catharine, Martyr of Alexandria - For in Eusebius the emperor's exasperation is provoked, not, as in the legend, by a refusal to abjure Christianity and to sacrifice to his gods, but by a refusal to gratify his guilty passion; and the punishment inflicted is merely Exile, not torture and death
Joseph - Priest 'of Shebaniah' who returned from Exile
Pen'Tateuch, the, - Some detached portions would appear to be of later origin; and when we remember how entirely, during some periods of Jewish history, the law seems to have been forgotten, and again how necessary it would be after the seventy years of Exile to explain some of its archaisms, and to add here and there short notes to make it more intelligible to the people, nothing can be more natural than to suppose that such later additions were made by Ezra and Nehemiah
Isaiah - The most notable passages are two in which our Lord applies to Himself the terms used by the prophet of the Exile with regard to the Servant of Jehovah, viz
Luciferus i, Bishop of Calaris - The proceedings were irregular and disorderly, and after some personal altercations the emperor sent Lucifer into Exile His banishment lasted from 355 to 361, and was mostly spent at Eleutheropolis in Palestine, subject to the persecutions of the Arian bp. 361, Julian permitted the Exiled bishops to return to their sees
Obadiah, Book of - Obadiah is one of the commonest of Hebrew names, and occurs both before and after the Exile: see preceding article. The prophecy predicts as imminent: ( a ) a universal judgment ( Obadiah 1:15 a, Obadiah 1:15 , in which the annihilation of Edom by the Jews (not [2] nations as in Obadiah 1:1 ; Obadiah 1:5 ; Obadiah 1:7 ) and Israelites forms an episode which is specially described ( Obadiah 1:18 ), and ( b ) the restoration of the Exiles alike of the Northern and of the Southern Kingdom ( Obadiah 1:18 , cf. The theory of the origin and interpretation of the book just described is substantially that of Wellhausen; it has been adopted in the main by Nowack and Marti; and, so far as the separation of Obadiah 1:15-21 (with Obadiah 1:15 b) from the rest of the chapter is concerned, and the assignment of the whole to a date after the Exile, by Cheyne ( EBi Hunneric, King of the Vandals. - Soon after he ascended the throne he ordered diligent search to be made for Manicheans, of whom he burnt many and Exiled more across the sea, being commended for this by Victor. ...
To secure the succession to his son, Hunneric sent his brother Theodoric into Exile and put to death his wife and children. Hunneric next deprived Catholics who held posts at the court or belonged to the army of their offices and pay; many of the former were forced to work in the fields near Utica and the latter were deprived of their property and Exiled to Sicily or Sardinia.

Wealth - ...
God's promises and threats are repeatedly fulfilled from the time of Joshua through the monarchy to the Exile and return. Ezra-Nehemiah describes the rebuilding of the temple after Exile, but this time the needs of the poor are given greater priority (Nehemiah 5:1-13 ). In expectation of just such obedience, the prophets look beyond the coming Exile to the restoration of a remnant in the land, whose prosperity will once again be great (Isaiah 54-55,60-66 ), including much to eat (Joel 2:23-27 ) and the shared wealth of all the nations (Zechariah 14:14 )

Government - Jehoiada relies on his personal influence and acts in concert with the chiefs of the army ( 2 Kings 11:1-21 ; 2 Kings 12:1-21 ), and even after the Exile Joshua is only the fellow of Zerubbabel.

Bible - The OT was nearly all written in the Holy Land; the only exceptions being in the case of books composed in the valley of the Euphrates during the Exile (Ezekiel, possibly Lamentations, Deutero-Isaiah, or part of it, perhaps some of the Psalms, a revision of the Law). This may have been done by the Euphrates during the Exile, so that the Law-book brought up to Jerusalem would be the Pentateuch (or the Hexateuch), or it may have been after the Return, in which case the Law-book would be only P Jeremiah - However disappointing in its immediate spiritual effects, the work of Josiah and his band of reformers gave the people a written law-book and a definitely organized religious system, which they carried with them into the Exile to form the nucleus of the OT Scriptures and the basis of the later Judaism. Its leaders the prophet Hananiah amongst them ( Jeremiah 28:1-17 ) preached out of season Isaiah’s old doctrine of the inviolability of Zion; even after the capture of Jerusalem in 597 and the first Exile, ‘the prophets’ promised in Jehovah’s name a speedy re-instatement. The same false hopes were exciting the Exiles in Babylon (ch. Jerusalem was razed to the ground; the survivors of the siege, and of the executions that followed, were carried into Exile. Jewish tradition relates that he died at the hands of his incensed fellow-exiles. This inner community of heart-believers survived the Exile; it gave birth to the Bible and the synagogue
Job - Two Rabbis placed Job in the period of the return from the Exile ( ib. ‘The prophet Jeremiah in his persecutions, Job who is called by Jahweh “my servant Job” ( Job 42:7 ), and the suffering Servant of Jahweh in the exilic prophet are figures which seem to stand in the connexion of a definite period’ (Baudissin, Einleitung , 768), and so point at the earliest to the Exile and the decades immediately preceding it. These and other considerations have led most recent critics to date the main poem near, or during, or after the Exile. ]'>[1] ), and Driver favour the period of the Exile; Cheyne (in EBi Jerusalem - Jerusalem did not change and the doom of Exile was the result. ...
The Babylonian Exile provided the environment for the transformation of Jerusalem, which lay desolate in ruins, into a spiritual symbol for the Jews. Upon the return of the Jews from the Exile to the ruins of Jerusalem, they rebuilt the temple but not the palace. Sheshbazzar, a prince of Davidic descent, led the first group of Exiles back in 538 b
Zechariah, the Book of - The mention of myrtles (representing the then depressed Jewish church, Zechariah 1:11) accords with the fact of their non mention before the Babylonian Exile (Nehemiah 8:15); contrast the original command as to the trees at the feast of tabernacles, "palms, and willows of the brook" Esther's name Hadassah means "myrtle". The Jewish Exiles in affliction in Egypt, Greece, etc. ...
The same phrases recur in both: as "passeth by and returneth" (meobeer 'umishab ) in Zechariah 7:14, also in Zechariah 9:8; "to remove" (hebir ), Zechariah 3:4, and Zechariah 13:2; "the eye of God," Zechariah 3:9; Zechariah 4:10; Zechariah 9:1; Zechariah 9:8; Israel's return from Exile and ruling the foes, by the law of righteous retribution (Zechariah 2:10; Zechariah 9:12; also compare Zechariah 2:10 with Zechariah 9:9; Zechariah 14:4); Jehovah's coming to Zion and dwelling there. Zechariah, even in his later chapters, shows his familiarity with the prophets of the Exile, Jeremiah and Ezekiel; Zechariah 9:2 alludes to Ezekiel 28:3; Zechariah 10:3 alludes to Ezekiel 34:17; Zechariah 11:4 alludes to Ezekiel 34:4; Zechariah 11:3 alludes to Jeremiah 12:5; Zechariah 13:8-9 alludes to Ezekiel 5:12; Zechariah 14:8 alludes to Ezekiel 47:1-12; Zechariah 14:10-11 alludes to Jeremiah 31:38-40; Zechariah 14:20-21 alludes to Ezekiel 43:12; Ezekiel 44:9
Zechariah, Book of - There follows a song that calls upon the Exiles to return, pictures the discomfiture of those that have plundered them, and the future glory of Zion as Jehovah’s dwelling-place. Jehovah’s curse has fallen upon the sinners, and sin itself is now removed to the land of Exile. The visions centre in the hope of a glorious future for Jerusalem, with its Temple restored, its enemies stilled, its Exiles returned, its sin forgiven, its wickedness removed, and with Jehovah’s spirit flowing in through priest and prince of Davidic line. 7, 8), Zechariah is led by a question concerning fasting to teach that the fasts which have been kept in the years of Exile are to be changed into joyous feasts
Daniel, the Book of - The theocracy, in the strict sense of the manifested kingdom of God on earth, has ceased since the Babylonian Exile, and shall only be resumed with a glory vastly exceeding the former at the millennium (Revelation 11:15; Revelation 11:20). He represents the covenant nation in Exile, and in subjection to the world power externally
Jacob - Esau also appears to have possessed himself of his father's property during Jacob's long Exile. Rebekah, also, was deprived of the society of her darling son, whom "she sent away for one year," as she fondly imagined, "until his brother's fury should turn away," 1619109431_7 ; but whom she saw no more; for she died during his long Exile of twenty years, though Isaac survived, Genesis 35:27

Providence - and during the long period of Exile, confidence in God's providence sustained the children of Israel through all of their doubts and disappointments (compare Isaiah 40:21-31 ; Isaiah 42:1-6 )
Water - The prophet of the Revelation (recalling Ezekiel 1:24; Ezekiel 43:2) once compares the voice of Christ (Revelation 1:15), and twice that of the great multitude of the redeemed (Revelation 14:2, Revelation 19:6), to the voice of many waters, in the one case thinking perhaps of the music of waves quietly breaking, in the other of the thunder of great billows crashing, around the aegean island which was his place of Exile
Land, Ground - Amos threatened Israel with Exile to a polluted land ( Amos 7:17 )
Absalom - ...
Joab perceiving how the king took to heart Absalom's Exile suborned a woman of Tekoa, by an imaginary case, to extort from the king (whose justice would not allow his love for Absalom to let him escape some penalty for Amnon's murder) the admission of the general principle that, in special cases where the life taken could not be recalled, means for restoring the loved and living banished one should be devised; just as God, considering the brevity of man's life, weak and irrecoverable when gone, "as water spilt on the ground, does not take a (sinner's) soul away" (so the Hebrew text of 2 Samuel 14:14 for "neither doth God respect any person"), but deviseth means that His banished be not (for ever) expelled from Him
Faustus (11), Sometimes Called the Breton - ...
Faustus was of unimpeachably good character; of an earnest, active, ascetic life; orthodox on the central doctrine of the Christian faith and suffering Exile for it as a confessor; but stigmatized as a semi-Pelagian, and consequently by many authorities, both ancient and modern, denied the title of saint

Timotheus, Called Aelurus - Collecting a band of turbulent men, he took possession, in the latter part of Lent, of the great "Caesarean" church, and was there lawlessly consecrated by only two bishops, whom Proterius and the Egyptian synod had deposed, and who, like himself, had been sentenced to Exile. 10), and all condemned Timotheus in more or less energetic terms, although some with "a salvo, if the statements of the Exiles were true" (Mansi, vii. Accordingly Timotheus was a second time Exiled with his brother Anatolius—first to Gangra and then, on his causing fresh disturbances, to a village on the shore of the Chersonesus which Eutychius calls Marsuphia (cf
Destroy, Destruction - From these specific examples of God's grace Jeremiah built a theology of repentance that gave hope to those facing Exile (Jeremiah 18:7-10 ). ...
Israel was told that continued disobedience would result in destruction and Exile. Exiled Israelites are the Lord's lost sheep. The prophet Isaiah foresaw that lost Exiles would return and worship on the holy mountain (27:13)
Ezekiel - prophet during the Babylonian Exile, son of Buzi (Ezekiel 1:3 ), and priest as well as prophet. However, it has been argued that since most of the messages were addressed to the people of Jerusalem (Ezekiel 16:2 ; Ezekiel 21:2 ; Ezekiel 22:2 ), it would have been meaningless to deliver them to the Exiles. ...
After Ezekiel returned to the Exiles in Tel-Abib, God spoke to him again, addressing him as “watchman” (Ezekiel 3:17 ) as a reminder of his responsibility to His people. These chapters are interpreted by some to be a literal description of the Temple to be rebuilt after the Exile, by some as an allegorical picture of the church, by others as a literal temple to be rebuilt as part of the fulfillment of the dispensational premillennial interpretation of Daniel's seventieth week (Daniel 9:2-27 ), and by others as an example of apocalyptic language to describe God's coming kingdom in understandable terms of the destruction of wickedness and the establishment of a sanctified people in whose midst God would dwell
Nation (2) - The first steps in this movement were taken by Ezra and Nehemiah, who put an end to mixed marriages among those who had returned from the Exile. Religiously, however, the nation was undivided after the Exile, feeling itself to be the special property and instrument of God (Matthew 2:6; Matthew 3:9, Luke 1:68, John 8:41)

Solomon - He also executed the commander-in-chief of the army, Joab (1 Kings 2:28-34), and sent the priest Abiathar into Exile (1 Kings 2:26-27)
Monotheism - The bitter experiences of Exile and suffering on the one hand, and on the other the lofty teachings of prophets and men of God, had eradicated all tendencies to polytheism, and had fixed immovably in the conscience and conviction of the entire nation the faith that Jehovah was the one God of the whole earth
Purity-Purification - This was probably the background of the need for purification when the people returned from Exile in Babylon
Levite - While 4,289 priests (approximately one-tenth of the entire returning number of Exiles) returned from captivity with Zerubbabel, only 341Levites, singers, and gatekeepers are recorded as returning (Ezra 2:36-58 ). They did not always value their function and inheritance, as evidenced after the Exile
Restore, Renew - Josephus talks about the rebirth of the nation of Israel after the Exile (Antiq
High Priest (2) - The priestly writings then adopted as authoritative assign its origin to the time of Moses, but the earlier writings contain no suggestion of the existence of the office, and cultural conditions before the Exile preclude an early date for its establishment
Art And Aesthetics - ...
The Intertestamental Era The days which followed the Babylonian Exile proved difficult for the Jewish remnant
Ammon, Ammonites - ’ When the Jews, just before the Exile, to avert national disaster, performed child-sacrifice to Jawheh as Melek or ‘king,’ the prophets stamped this ritual as of foreign or Ammonite origin on account of the similarity of the name, though perhaps it was introduced from Phœnicia (cf
Habakkuk - 1 and 2 towards the close of the Exile, near the end of the Chaldæan period
Aaron - But at the Exile the priests who were in Jerusalem were carried off, leaving room in the city for many country (Aaronite) priests, who would establish themselves firmly in official prestige with the meagre remnant of the population
Mount Mountain - Perhaps he had seen such phenomena in his lonely life of Exile amid the islands of the aegean! The allusion in Revelation 17:9 is likewise figurative, ‘The seven heads are seven mountains
Language - It flourished in its purest form in Palestine, among the Phoenicians and Hebrews, until the period of the Babylonish Exile; soon after which it declined, and finally was succeeded by a kind of Hebraeo-Aramaean dialect, such as was spoken in the time of our Savior among the Jews
Mount Mountain - Perhaps he had seen such phenomena in his lonely life of Exile amid the islands of the aegean! The allusion in Revelation 17:9 is likewise figurative, ‘The seven heads are seven mountains
Olympias, the Younger - Our only trustworthy information is from Chrysostom's 17 letters to her, some of which are long religious tracts, the composition of which relieved the tedium of his Exile and made him almost forget his miseries
Siricius, Bishop of Rome - The pope was zealous against the Manicheans at Rome, where "he found Manicheans, whom he sent into Exile, and provided that they should not communicate with the faithful, since it was not lawful to vex the Lord's body with a polluted mouth" (Lib
Amos, Theology of - Leviticus 26:17,25 , 30-33 ; Lamentations 4:21-22-57 ), and Exile (4:2-3; 5:5,27; 6:7; 7:11,17; 9:4; cf. The foremost in Israelite society, complacent and secure, will be among the first to go into Exile (6:1,7). Those who worship the gods of the nations will be Exiled to such nations (5:26-27). The perspective seems to be that of an Exile from Judah; there are references to returning from captivity (v. Returning Exiles will be securely reestablished in the land as they rebuild its ruins and enjoy its lavish bounty. It becomes clear that, just as impending manifestations of Yahweh's wrath are seen to be related to his final day of judgment, so also the imminent restoration of the Exiles represents the first stage in the establishment of his eternal kingdom
Herod - The one faithful (humanly speaking) act of her life was her preferring to share Herod's Exile rather than stay at home in her own country; surely sinners "eat of the fruit of their own ways, and are filled with their own devices" (Proverbs 1:31; Jeremiah 2:19). But "vaulting ambition o'erleaps itself and falls on the other side"; and seeking the name of "king" besides the reality which her paramour had, she and he ended their days in shame and Exile. Galilee and Peraea were added to his dominions on the Exile of Herod ANTIPAS (see above), whom, notwithstanding the kindnesses he formerly when in difficulties received from him, Agrippa supplanted by intrigues at Rome
Sabbath - But after the Exile greater prominence is given to it (Isaiah 56:2; Isaiah 56:4; Isaiah 56:6; Isaiah 58:13 f. These utterances indicate that rehabilitation of the Sabbath which increasingly characterized Judaism as it emerged purified and refined from the fires of the Exile
Apocrypha - It recites the overthrow of Jerusalem, the Babylonian Exile, the return under Zerubbabel, and Ezra’s part in the reorganization of the Jewish State. Its purpose seems to have been (1) to quiet the souls of the Jews in Exile by telling them that they would soon return to their native land; and (2) to admonish them to flee the idolatry that was everywhere prevalent in Babylonia. Bar 6:1-73 is called the ‘ Epistle of Jeremy ,’ and is nominally a letter of that prophet, warning the Exiles against worshipping idols
Sabbath - But after the Exile greater prominence is given to it (Isaiah 56:2; Isaiah 56:4; Isaiah 56:6; Isaiah 58:13 f. These utterances indicate that rehabilitation of the Sabbath which increasingly characterized Judaism as it emerged purified and refined from the fires of the Exile
Jews - (Hebrew: Yehudi) ...
A name which at first was restricted to the subjects of the Kingdom of Juda, but which after the Babylonian Exile became the common name for the race descended from Jacob and for the followers of the Mosaic religion. ...
After a period of approximately 70 years, Cyrus, King of Persia, gave the Exiles permission to return, and about 50,000 Jews followed Zorobabel to Palestine in 538 BC. In the course of the 13th century the Jews were Exiled from France and England, and in the 14th, severe laws were passed against them and bloody assaults made on them in France (where they had been readmitted), in Spain, Germany, and Bohemia
Mining And Metals - As a medium of currency it was reckoned by weight, in shekels and talents, coinage being unknown among the Jews before the Exile
Cloud, Cloud of the Lord - ...
The pillar of cloud motif-set forth in the exodus account and expanded in the prophetic announcements of a new exodus after the Babylonian Exile-encompasses a rich complex of theological meanings and functions: guidance/leading (of Israel out of Egypt and through the wilderness to Canaan, Exodus 13:21 ; Numbers 14:14 ; Nehemiah 9:12 ; Psalm 78:14 ); a signal for movement (breaking and setting up camp, Psalm 36:5 ; Numbers 9:17-23 ); protection from danger (as a barrier of darkness between Israel and the Egyptians, Exodus 14:19-20 ); the sustained, immediate, personal presence of Yahweh/the angel of the Lord (Exodus 13:22 ; 14:19,24 ; 40:38 ; Numbers 9:15-16 ); an agency of summons (to battle, Numbers 10:34-35 ; and to worship, Exodus 33:10 ); both a concealment and manifestation of divine glory (Exodus 16:10 ; 19:9,16 ; 20:21 ; 24:15-18 ; 34:5 ; Deuteronomy 4:11 ; 5:22 ); the place of propositional revelation (as an oracular cloud, Exodus 33:9 ; Psalm 99:7 ); the dwelling place/throne of divinity (over the tabernacle, Numbers 9:18,22 ; 10:11 ; and in particular, over the mercy seat, Leviticus 16:2 ); the locus of cultic theophany (for the investiture of the seventy elders and Joshua, Numbers 11:25 ; Deuteronomy 31:15 ; for the inauguration of the tabernacle, Exodus 40:34-35 ); shade/protection from the sun or storm (Numbers 10:34 ; Psalm 105:39 ; Isaiah 4:5 ); illumination (as a pillar of fire by night, Exodus 14:20 ; Numbers 9:15 ); and an agency of legal investigation and/or executive judgment (against Israel's enemies, Exodus 14:24 ; and against rebels within Israel, Numbers 12:5,10 ; 16:42 )
Jehoiakim - ...
Ammon had seized on Gad's territory, upon Israel's Exile, and acted as Nebuchadnezzar's agent to scourge Judah (Jeremiah 49:1-2; Ezekiel 25:3)
Praise - God's actions, such as Israel's restoration from the Exile, are to result in God's "righteousness and praise spring [2] up before all nations" (Isaiah 61:11 )
Hallel - ‡ Betrothal - ...
After the Exile the custom of the earlier period seems to have continued, although with certain modifications
Dionysius of Alexandria - 257, he was banished, but continued to direct and animate the Alexandrian church from the successive places of his Exile
Patience - After that he had been seven times in bonds, had been driven into Exile, had been stoned, had preached in the East and in the West, he won the noble renown which was the reward of his faith, having taught righteousness unto the whole world and having reached the farthest bounds of the West; and when he had borne his testimony before the rulers, so he departed from the world and went into the holy place, having been found a notable pattern of patience
Pharisees - The answer to the question How came the Pharisees into the place of power and prestige they held in the time of our Lord? involves a clear understanding of the task of Israel after the Exile
Palladius, Bishop of Helenopolis - Tillemont considers that on the death of Theophilus in 412 Palladius was permitted to leave his place of Exile, but not to return to his see
Patience - After that he had been seven times in bonds, had been driven into Exile, had been stoned, had preached in the East and in the West, he won the noble renown which was the reward of his faith, having taught righteousness unto the whole world and having reached the farthest bounds of the West; and when he had borne his testimony before the rulers, so he departed from the world and went into the holy place, having been found a notable pattern of patience
Music, Instruments, Dancing - ...
During the Babylonian Exile the question, “How shall we sing the Lord's song in a strange land?” (Psalm 137:4 ), arose. The return from Exile and reestablishment of the Temple saw the descendants of the original Levitical musicians (compare...
Ezra 2:40-41 ) reassume responsibility for liturgical music
Ibas, Bishop of Edessa - 18 ; all the old charges were reproduced by the same accusers, amid wild yells of "Ibas to the gallows, to the mines, to the circus, to Exile" drowning every attempt at explanation or defence. At the beginning of 451 the deposed and banished bishops were allowed to return from Exile, but the question of their restoration was reserved for the fourth general council which met at Chalcedon a
Prayer - Being appropriate for times of solicitude and sorrow, fasting naturally became associated with prayer ( Psalms 72:12 ), especially after the Exile ( Nehemiah 1:4 , Daniel 9:3 ; cf. ) Exile and Return
Herod - Within a short time Herod had executed Hyrcanus II, the son of Alexandra Salome who had returned from Exile, Hyrcanus' daughter Alexandra, and her daughter Mariamne I, who was also Herod's favorite wife, the one whom he deeply and passionately loved
Death - By the time of the Babylonian Exile, this pattern of passive acceptance began to change
Thessalonica - Cicero, who spent seven months of Exile in it, was struck by its central position, the Thessalonians seeming to him ‘positi in gremio imperii nostri’ (de Prov
Joshua, the Book of - Other Bible students think the Book of Joshua only reached its present form when the Former Prophets were collected together during the Exile
Malachi, Theology of - After the return from the Babylonian Exile in 538 b
Servant of the Lord - In 42:5,49:8 the servant functions as "a covenant for the people" and is involved in the restoration of the land after the Babylonian Exile
Lamentations, Theology of - ), and of a people in Exile, is faced head on (1:3; 2:8-9). The belief in God as compassionate gives an intimation of hope to this suffering city, its inhabitants, and its Exiles (3:21)
Nahum, Theology of - He had also turned against his people in righteous judgment at the time of Samuel's youth and the Exile of the northern kingdom
Learning - From the restoration following the epoch of the Exile there was a class of men who are known to us as ‘scribes’ (sôphěrîm)
Fulness of the Time - —Centuries of chequered discipline had fixed in the Jewish mind the belief in one true and perfectly righteous God, and subsequently to the return from the Exile there had been no relapse into idolatry
Proselytes - ...
But Jewish fanaticism sought proselytes also by force and fraud, as John Hyrcanus offered the Idumeans the alternative of death, Exile, or circumcision (Josephus, Ant
Arians - Soon after which, Eusebius of Nicomedia, and Theognis of Nice, being found to continue their countenance and protection to the Arian cause, to communicate with those whom they had anathematized, and to concur in those sentiments which they had condemned by their subscriptions; they were both subjected to the same penalty of Exile by the emperor, and were actually deposed, (as we learn from Athanasius,) and had successors ordained to their sees, though history is silent as to the council by which this was done
Judah, Kingdom of - The covenant has six historical stages:...
(1) the family;...
(2) expanded into a nation...
(3) royalty;...
(4) the Exile and return;...
(5) Messiah's advent and the church in troublous times:...
(6) His second advent and the church's and Israel's glory
Petrus ii., Archbaptist of Alexandria - Peter tells us that the pagans esteemed Lucius as the favourite of Serapis, because he denied the divinity of the Son; and dwells on the brave confessorship (1) of 19 priests and deacons whom Magnus, after vain attempts to make them Arianize, transported to the pagan city of Heliopolis in Phoenicia, sending also into penal servitude 23 monks and others who expressed their sympathy; (2) of 7 Egyptian bishops Exiled to Diocaesarea, a city inhabited by Jews, while some other prelates were "handed over to the curia," their official immunity from onerous curial obligations being annulled in requital of their steadfastness in the faith. 10); and Facundus of Hermiane, in his Defence of the Three Articles, quotes part of a letter addressed by Peter to the Exiled Egyptian confessors at Diocaesarea. Peter had heard of it, but not from Basil; and had remonstrated with his Exiled subordinates. " Dorotheus, angered in his turn, said something which offended Peter's dignity and Peter wrote to Basil, complaining of this and of his silence in regard to the Exile's conduct. " ...
Peter's Exile ended in the spring of 378
Poverty of Spirit - The foreign influences which began to operate in the period succeeding the Exile had chiefly affected the richer classes, while the poor still clung to the ancient traditions
Purification (2) - —From the time of the Exile onwards, the interest of the Jew had largely centred around ritual observance, conditioned, to begin with, by the necessity of maintaining the separateness of the Remnant that remained
Severus, Patriarch of Antioch - A vehement dispute arose between Severus and his fellow-exile Julian of Halicarnassus as to the corruptibility of our Lord's human body before His resurrection
Simplicius, Bishop of Rome - ...
Meanwhile Basiliscus at Constantinople, issuing an encyclic letter, repudiated and condemned the council of Chalcedon; required all, under pain of deposition, Exile, and other punishments, to agree to this condemnation; and ordered the copies of pope Leo's letters and of the Acts of Chalcedon, wherever found, to be burnt
Trade And Commerce - In Jeremiah 37:15 there is an allusion to a place in Jerusalem called ‘the booths,’ but references to shop-keeping are rare before the Exile. There is no evidence that Israelitish commerce was conducted on any other principle before the Exile, after which isolated individuals doubtless endeavoured to earn their livelihood by trade ventures. The prophets appear to have anticipated that the Exiles would carry on in their new home the same agricultural pursuits as had occupied them in Palestine ( Jeremiah 29:5 ); and it would appear that till the taking of Jerusalem by Titus, and perhaps even later, agriculture remained the normal occupation of the Israelites, whereas in modern times this pursuit has passed entirely out of their hands
Ethics - But it took the Exile to make Judah listen. Though "the law" had come from Moses, from Joshua to the eve of the Exile (Jeremiah, and the historian of 1-2Kings) no prophet appealed to its authority
Kings, Books of - The date of the Book of Kings in its present form cannot be earlier than the Babylonian Exile. About fifty years later an author living in the Exile, and who sympathized with the main purpose of the book, completed it in substantially its present form
Leadership - ...
During the Exile there were still elders in Judah (Ezekiel 8:11-12 ). In Exile also there were elders heading up the community (Jeremiah 29:1 ; Ezekiel 8:1 ; 14:1 ; 20:1,3 ). Elisha took God's message to Syria (2 Kings 8 ), Jonah to Nineveh, and Ezekiel preached among the Exiles in Babylon
Messiah - ...
It is not surprising, amid the rapid changes of rulers and the disasters wrought by foreign invasion, that Hosea should have prophesied the discipline of Exile for his faithless countrymen, and as its final issue that they should return and seek Jahweh their God and ‘David their king. The ‘sure mercies of David’ to which the Jews still clung, though with feeble hope, in the dark days of Exile (Isaiah 55:3), began in the age of Isaiah to take root in the national imagination
Sabbath - This conception of the Sabbath underwent a radical modification in the age of the Exile
Tomb, Grave, Sepulchre - Among the Hebrews, while the conception of a personal resurrection arose only after the return from the Exile, the belief in Sheol as a place where the soul after death remained in some sort of connexion with the body did much to determine the disposal of the corpse and the nature of the tomb
Chronology of the Old Testament - It is probable also that a similar term was counted from the building of the Temple to its rebuilding under Darius or to the end of the Exile, while it is not without significance that the duration of the Northern Kingdom was calculated to be 240 years
Criticism - Graf (1866), following hints of Reuss, dropped in the lecture-room, but never published by that cautious scholar, put forth the hypothesis which became the basis of the subsequently developed theory of the early history of Israel, and thus gave rise to the phrase ‘the Grafian hypothesis,’ according to which the Priestly legislation of the Pentateuch came later than Deuteronomy, and was only incorporated with the earlier work of the Deuteronomist after the Exile
Inheritance - The Exile spelt disinheritance; and disinheritance meant a great deal more than the loss of a little strip of territory; it meant the forfeiture of spiritual blessings as a consequence of national sin
Number Systems And Number Symbolism - Seventy years is specified as the length of the Exile (Jeremiah 25:12 , Jeremiah 29:10 ; Daniel 9:1 : 2 )
Prophets, the - Those given after a portion of Judah had returned from Exile, when they were helped by the prophecies of Haggai, Zechariah, and Malachi, which present the time of the Messiah on earth, and go even beyond to future blessing
Temple of Jerusalem - Ezekiel's vision of the new Jerusalem Temple after the Exile (Ezekiel 40-43 ) is idealistic and was perhaps never realized in Zerubbabel's rebuilding of the Temple, but many of its details would have reflected Solomon's Temple in which Ezekiel probably ministered as a priest before being deported to Babylon in 597 B. permitted the Jews to return from the Babylonian Exile with the Temple vessels which had been taken
John the Baptist - John's Exile in Patmos; the first, to the Ephesian church; the others to individuals; and that they were sent alone with the Gospel, which the Apostle is supposed also to have written in Patmos. But as for the author, his residence was in none of the Ionian or Asiatic cities, where the want of writing materials is not conceivable: he was still therefore in the place of his Exile
Hosea - The unfaithful will reap Exile in a foreign land (Hosea 9:1-4 )
Samuel, Books of - ; and finally the books were given their present form by a Deuteronomic editor who revised the existing materials and added materials of his own some time in the Exile
Egypt - The Exile of Joseph and the migration of Jacob to "the land of Goshen" occurred about 200 years later
Daniel - ...
The pair Daniel 4 and Daniel 5 shows God's power to humble the world power in the height of its impious arrogance; first Nebuchadnezzar, whose coming hypochondriacal Exile among the beasts Daniel foretells with fidelity and tenderness; then Belshazzar, whose blasphemy he more sternly reproves
Elder - The office of elder survived the Babylonian Exile, but not without change
Sadducees (2) - ), whose posterity officiated in the Temple down to the time of the Exile, and even formed the chief element of the post-exilic priesthood; but Kuenen says this conjecture is burdened with insurmountable difficulties’ (Religion of Israel, iii
Nehemiah - , was to repair the walls; they were in a state of disrepair almost a century after the first arrival from Exile in 538 B
Covenant - The Exile is sometimes thought of as marking the dissolution of the Old Covenant ( Jeremiah 31:31 ff
New Creation - The punishment of the Exile was replaced by the promise of renewal of the covenant and the establishment of God's kingdom on earth
Freedom - Now their Exile in Babylon, as well as their subsequent submission to various powers, including Rome, became a reminder of their sin and fueled their longing for God's final deliverance
Promise - This messianic utterance still prevailed when, over the centuries, the Israelites became disobedient to God's covenant and ultimately were punished by Exile
Stephen - ...
(3) That God nevertheless by ways seeming most unlikely to man ultimately exalted the Exile Abraham, the outcast slave Joseph, and the despised Moses to honour and chiefship; so it will be in Messiah's case in spite of the humiliation which makes the Jews reject Him
Diodorus, Presbyter of Antioch - Once at least when driven from Antioch he joined his spiritual father Meletius in Exile at Getasa in Armenia, where, in 372, he met Basil the Great (Basil, Ep
Jeremiah - We read of no prophecy that Jeremiah actually delivered in this king's reign; but the fate of Jeconiah, his being carried into captivity, and continuing an Exile till the time of his death, were foretold early in his father's reign, as may be particularly seen in the twenty-second chapter
Education - ...
Of schools and schoolmasters, however, there is no evidence till after the Exile, for the expression ‘schools of the prophets’ has no Scripture warrant
Passover And Feast of Unleavened Bread - It is likely that the feast was observed during the Exile, and that its commemorative significance was then made more emphatic
Hebrews - After seventy years of Exile, a few small colonies of Hebrews returned, and built another temple at Jerusalem, and attempted to reestablished their nation; but they had to struggle first, under the Maccabees, against the kings of the Seleucian race, (see JERUSALEM ,) and then against the Romans; by whom at length, under Titus, Jerusalem was taken and utterly destroyed, A
Maxentius, Joannes, Presbyter And Archimandrite - Exiled by the Arians, wrote to Hormisdas, requesting his opinion as to the orthodoxy of the writings of Faustus and urging that Vitalian and Justinian were equally anxious to hear from Hormisdas on the subject (Possess. ...
The deputation at Rome, finding the Roman legates at Constantinople too strong for them, and therefore having little hope of success with Hormisdas, resolved to appeal to the African bishops then in Exile in Sardinia, some of whom, as Fulgentius of Ruspe, enjoyed a high reputation for ability as well as orthodoxy. of Ruspe, in his well-known de Incarnatione et Gratis Domini nostri Jesu Christi , in which the Exiled bishops express their hearty approval of the confession of faith which the appeal contained (Fulgent. ...
Maxentius and his friends, having returned to Constantinople, sent a copy of the writings of Faustus of Riez to Fulgentius and the other Exiles in Sardinia, requesting him and his brethren to send their opinion of these (ib. The encyclic of Hormisdas had now reached the Exiled bishops in Sardinia, though there is no reason to believe that they had also seen the Responsio of Maxentius, and they had had ample leisure for consideration of the second appeal addressed to them from Constantinople
Purity (2) - Since the return from the Exile, and especially since the reconstruction under Ezra and Nehemiah, there had been a strenuous and sustained endeavour to secure the purity of both the national and the individual life by means of the jealous exclusion of all that could cause impurity
Hosius (1), a Confessor Under Maximian - of Rome, was summoned to Milan, where Constantius was residing, and allowed three days to choose between signing the condemnation of Athanasius or going into Exile. This is the more remarkable as he had never heard of the Nicene Creed until he went into Exile (Hilar. 533) that the majority of those with whom he was then living in Exile had no true acquaintance with God—in other words, held Arian opinions—"Ex majori pane Asianae decem provinciae intra quas consisto, vere Deum nesciunt
Synagogue (2) - During the Exile in Babylon, worship at the Temple necessarily ceased, and the conditions of the Captivity have consequently been regarded as a favourite soil for the germs of the institution (Wellhausen, IJG Ten Commandments - (3) Exodus 20:1-26 , revised after the Exile at or after the time that the Priestly Code was published, bases the observance on the Sabbatical rest of God after the Creation ( Genesis 2:1-3 P Sol'Omon - At the age of ten or eleven he must have passed through the revolt of Absalom, and shared his father's Exile
Chronicles, i - As the first part of this large work dealt with a period which was already covered by Samuel and Kings, it was omitted, to begin with, in the formation of the Canon; while the latter part of the book, dealing with the ecclesiastical life of Jerusalem after the Exile, was granted a place
Genesis - God brings reconciliation even in Exile in an enemy land (1619109431_6:26 )
Genealogy - After the return from Babylon, it was more important to be able to trace descent from the Exiles than to be a native of Judah (Ezra 9:1-15 ). In 1 Chronicles 6:4 there are, including Aaron, 23 priests from the Exodus to the Captivity an evidently artificial reconstruction; forty years is a generation, and 40×12 = 480 years to the building of the Temple ( 1 Kings 6:1 ), the other 11 priests filling up the period till the Exile, which took place in the eleventh generation after Solomon
Amen - It was not till after the Exile that it assumed its far commoner place as the answer, or almost the refrain in chorus, to the words of a previous speaker, and as such took its natural position at the close of the five divisions of the Psalms
Jeremiah - ...
Prophecies of captivity and return (Chapters 26-36) include a warning to the Jerusalemites to submit to Babylon or be destroyed (26:1-28:17); an assurance to those already in Exile that there is no hope for an immediate return to Jerusalem (29:1-32); the promise of a new age after the nation’s restoration (30:1-33:26); and guarantees that though treachery and rebellion will be punished, fidelity will be rewarded (34:1-36:32)
Isidorus Pelusiota, an Eminent Ascetic - He also felt the full influence of that great development of Egyptian monasticism which was encouraged by the seclusion of Athanasius during his third Exile and by the persecution of the "holy solitaries" after his death, and which made so deep an impression on the as yet unconverted Augustine ( Confess. Theophilus of Alexandria had practically procured his deposition and Exile; the West had supported Chrysostom while he lived and afterwards had suspended communion with churches which would not insert his name in their diptychs
Government - The elders still had a role after the Exile in administering Ezra's reforms (Ezra 10:8 )
Apocrypha - Tobit, purportedly from the time of the Assyrian Exile, combines the themes of quest, romance, and overcoming the demonic in a story of God's healing of his faithful servant Tobit and deliverance of the unfortunate widow Sarah
Joshua, Theology of - The later failures of Israel's leadership and of the people brought divine judgment, which revoked these blessings by uprooting the people from that land and sending them into Exile
Sabbath - During and after the Babylonian Exile, worship became a more prominent part of Sabbath observance
Excommunication - The State has power to send into Exile, to deprive of civil rights, and even claims and exercises the power to inflict a death-sentence
Jacobus Baradaeus, Bishop of Edessa - Justinian had resolved to enforce the Chalcedonian decrees universally, and the bishops and clergy who refused them were punished with imprisonment, deprivation, and Exile
Moses - His Egyptian rearing and life occupy 40 years, his Exile in the Arabian desert 40, and his leadership of Israel from Egypt to Moab 40 (Acts 7:23; Acts 7:30; Acts 7:36). Zipporah bore him Gershom and Eliezer whose names ("stranger," "God is my help") intimate how keenly he felt his Exile (Exodus 18:3-4)
Sacrifice - With the great prophet of the Exile there rises also the commanding figure of the Suffering Servant of the Lord. This resulted from the deepened sense of sin which had developed during the Exile
God - In the period from the Exile to Christ, a certain deterioration in the spiritual conception of God is visible. This tendency began even at the Exile, and accounts for the discontinuance of anthropomorphic language
Arius, Followers of - His sister Constantia is credited with having prevailed upon him to allow Eusebius of Nicomedia and Arius to return from Exile. The intriguers no doubt imagined that, as the supporters of the Nicene formula were in Exile, they could give no further trouble, and that the line of least resistance would be to come to an arrangement with the Arian (Anomoean) party. Among those who were present at this council were men so diverse as the hated tyrant George of Alexandria, and Hilary of Poictiers, still Exiled from his diocese. The edict of Julian (361) permitting the return of the Exiles left the way open to Athanasius to rejoin his people. When the semi-Arians, with the permission of Valentinian, held a council at Lampsacus in 364, its decisions were set aside by Valens, whose hand had already been heavy on the Homoousians, and who now Exiled the semi-Arian bishops
Julius (5), Bishop of Rome - When Julius became pope, Athanasius was in Exile at Trèves after his first deposition by the council of Tyre, having been banished by Constantine the Great in 336. He regards the return at last of their beloved bishop after such prolonged affliction as a reward granted to their unwavering affection for him, shewn by their continual prayers and their letters of sympathy that had consoled his Exile, as well as to his own faithfulness
David - In the South, by contrast, a single dynasty ruled until the Babylonian Exile
John - ...
The Acts of John is a third-century apocryphal writing which records miraculous events, John's journey to Rome, his Exile on Patmos, accounts of several journeys, and a detailed account of John's death
Jerusalem - The loss was a painful blow to the Exiles, but they kept memory of Zion alive deep in their hearts (Psalm 137:1-6 ). Actually, the Exile served to enhance the theological significance of Jerusalem
Festivals - Although the Exile brought a temporary cessation (Hosea 2:11 ), the festival was resumed later (Nehemiah 10:33 ; Ezra 3:1-6 )
Stranger, Alien, Foreigner - 196): but ‘so long as we are still at home (ἐνδημοῦντες) in the body, we are in a sort of Exile from our home (ἐκδημοῦμεν) in the Lord’ (2 Corinthians 5:6; cf
Excommunication (2) - ...
For the immediate origin of the practice of excommunication as it meets us in the Gospels, we have only to go back to Ezra and the days after the Exile, when the strictest discipline was absolutely essential to the solidarity, indeed to the very existence, of the Jewish Church and nation
God - Although such false “gods” were being worshiped by pagan nations (and perhaps worshiped by some of the Hebrews who were in Exile in Babylonia), these deities would ultimately perish because they were not eternal in nature
Marcellus, Bishop of Ancyra - Athanasius who had returned from Exile without being synodically restored
Martinus, Saint, Bishop of Tours - Gaul being in a state of confusion in consequence of the Exile of Hilary, Martin went to Italy, and for a short time found a safe retreat at Milan. The emperor seems to have been sincerely convinced that the heretical teaching of the Priscillianists involved gross immoralities; and, accordingly, in 385 Priscillian was executed with several of his adherents, while others were Exiled
Israel - to the Exile , 6) regards the Khabiri, who in the el-Amarna tablets lay siege to Jerusalem, as Hebrews who made an incursion into Palestine, c Messiah - The Messianic hope during the Exile . It would seem as if at the outset the Exiles had expected that they would soon return to Palestine, but this hope was opposed most vigorously by Ezekiel, and the fall of Jerusalem confirmed his teaching. Jehovah would make an everlasting covenant with His people ( Isaiah 55:1-6 ), but the new nation would not he composed of all those who had been swept into Exile and their descendants. With the return of the Exiles from Babylon to Judah attempts were made to inaugurate an ideal commonwealth which should embody these anticipations
John (the Apostle) - —The discussion of the deliverances of tradition in regard to John’s Exile in Patmos is vitally connected with the authorship of the Apocalypse (see art.

This fact, and his expressly calling himself "the priest" (Zechariah 14:16-195), favor the view that his mention of the 30th fear of his own age is in order to mark his entering on a priestly ministry to his Exiled countrymen (that being the usual age, Numbers 4:23; Numbers 4:30; "the heavens being opened" to him, as they were to his Antitype in beginning His ministry in His 30th year at Jordan, Luke 3:21-23). But the unbelieving were willing to do anything to remain in their native land; and despised their Exiled brethren as having no share in the temple sacrifices. Jeremiah (Jeremiah 29) sent a letter to the Exiles to warn them against the flattering promises of false prophets that they should soon return, for that the captivity would last 70 years. ...
