rḗ - kôr´dẽr ( מזכּיר , mazkı̄r ; the Revised Version margin "chronicler"): A high functionary in the court of the Jewish kings, part of whose duty seems to have been to chronicle the events of the reign, but who also occupied a position corresponding with that of the modern vizier ( 2 Samuel 8:16; 2 Samuel 20:24; 1 Chronicles 18:15 , etc.). His high rank is shown by the facts that, with other officers, he represented Hezekiah in speaking with Rabshakeh (2 Kings 18:18 ), and, in the reign of Josiah, superintended the repairs of the temple (2 Chronicles 34:8 ).
