(Heb. Yehochanan', יְחֹוֹחָנָן Jehovah-granted, q.d. θεοδῶρος ), the name of several men. (See JOHANAN); (See JOHN), etc.

1. (Sept. Ι᾿ωνάν ) A Korhite and head of the sixth division of Levitical Temple porters (1 Chronicles 26:3). B.C. 1014.

2. (Sept. Ι᾿ωανάν ) Jehoshaphat's second "captain," in command of 280,000 (?) men (2 Chronicles 17:15); probably the same whose son Ishmael supported Jehoiada in his restoration of prince Jehoash (2 Chronicles 23:1). B.C. cir. 910.

3. (Sept. Ι᾿ωανάν, Auth. Vers. "Johanan.") The father of Azariah, which latter was one of the Ephraimite chiefs who insisted upon the return of the captives from the rival kingdom (2 Chronicles 28:12). B.C. ante 738.

4. (Sept. Ι᾿ωανάν, A. Vers. "Johanan.") A priest, the "son" of Eliashib, into whose chamber Ezra retired to bewail the profligacy of his countrymen in marrying Gentile wives (Ezra 10:6); doubtless the same elsewhere called JOHANAN in the original (Nehemiah 12:22-23) and perhaps identical with No. 7 below.

6. (Sept. Ι᾿ωνάθαν v.r. Ι᾿ωνάν, Auth. Vers. "Johanan.") Son of Tobiah, the Samaritan enemy of the Jews; and son-in-law of Meshullam (Nehemiah 6:18). B.C. 446.

7. (Sept. Ι᾿ωνάν ) One of the priests who celebrated with music the reparation of the walls of Jerusalem (Nehemiah 12:42). B.C. 446. He was perhaps the same with No. 4 or No. 8.

8. (Sept. Ι᾿ωανάν ) A leading priest, the "son" of Amariah and contemporary with Joiakim (Nehemiah 12:13). B.C. cir. 406. He may have been identical with the preceding.
