QUARTERMASTER (Heb. שַׂר, H8569, plus מְנוּחָֽה, tr. quartermaster by RSV in Jer 51:59). This reading is based on an emendation by metathesis. A similar expression applied to David in 1 Chronicles 28:2 shows the KJV is more apt, “quiet prince.” There is no ground for emendation. Ugaritic does not develop this stem; it is a title of royalty, but is used in different semantic relationships and with various meanings.
