Pagiel

PAGIEL (pā'gĭ-ĕl, Heb. pagh‘î’ēl, a meeting with God). The son of Ocran who was over the tribe of Asher (Num.7.72).


PAGIEL pā’ gĭ əl (פַּגְעִיאֵ֖ל). A chief of the tribe of Asher; he helped Moses number the Israelites (Num 1:13; 2:27; 7:72, 77; 10:26).

International Standard Bible Encyclopedia (1915)

pa’-gi-el, pa’-ji-el, pa-gi’-el (pagh`i’el, "God’s intervention"): Son of Ocran, of the tribe of Asher, among those enrolled by Moses at the numbering of Israel (Nu 1:13; 2:27). When the tabernacle was set up, the heads of the families of Israel "brought their offerings" in rotation, and Pagiel, as prince of his tribe, came on the 11th day (Nu 7:72). Nu 7:72-77 describes his offering. In the journeyings of Israel he was "over the host of the tribe of the children of Asher" (Nu 10:26), and possibly standard-bearer (compare Nu 10:14,22,25).
