Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Ezra 1:8

_ _ Shesh-bazzar, the prince of Judah — that is, Zerubbabel, son of Salathiel (compare Ezra 3:8; Ezra 5:16). He was born in Babylon, and called by his family Zerubbabel, that is, stranger or exile in Babylon. Shesh-bazzar, signifying “fire-worshipper,” was the name given him at court, as other names were given to Daniel and his friends. He was recognized among the exiles as hereditary prince of Judah.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Ezra 1:5-11.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Ezra 1:8

Sheshbazzar — Zerubbabel; the Chaldeans called him Sheshbazzar, that is, Joy in tribulation, but among his own people he was called Zerubbabel, a stranger in Babylon. So he looked upon himself, tho' (Josephus says) he was captain of the life — guard.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Ezra 1:8

(h) So the Chaldeans called Zerubbabel who was the chief governor, so that the preeminence still remained in the house of David.
