Baruch

Baruch [Bā'ro̅o̅ch]—blessed.

  1. The son of Zabbai who helped to rebuild the wall (Neh. 3:20; 10:6).
  2. The son of Neriah, the son of Maaseian (Jer. 32:12-16). Jeremiah owed much to this loyal secretary who acted as his amanuensis while he was in prison: Baruch made a heavy sacrifice when he threw in his lot with Jeremiah and became his scribe.
  3. A descendant of Perez, a returned exile (Neh. 11:5).
