Jehozabad (temple official)
Excerpt from the Lexham Bible Dictionary, the most advanced Bible dictionary.
A Levite of the postexilic Jewish community who was present when the silver, gold, and vessels were weighed within the house of God following the Babylonian exile (Ezra 8:33). His name is a shortened form of “Jehozabad” (יְהוֹזָבָד‎, yehozavad). He may be the same person as the Levite named Jozabad mentioned several other times in Ezra-Nehemiah (e.g., Ezra 10:23; Neh 8:7; 11:16).

JOZABAD (PERSON) [Heb yôzābād (יֹוזָבָד)]. Jozabad occurs only in postexilic biblical writings.
