Sherezer

One of the messengers sent to the house of God in the fourth year of king Darius, to pray and to inquire concerning the continuation of fasting in the fifth month (probably in commemoration of the destruction of the temple etc., (2 Kings 25:8-10). God’s answer was that they had not fasted to Him (Zech. 7:2-5). The name is really Persian and is identical with that of Sharezer, son of Sennacherib in 2 Kings 19:37; Isa. 37:38).
