Sarsechim

SARSECHIM (sar’sē-kĭm, Heb. sarsekhîm). In the KJV one of Nebuchadnezzar’s princes who entered Jerusalem when it fell (Jer.39.3). The name is difficult to identify. Many scholars believe that it (together with the Nebo of the previous word—i.e., Nebo-Sarsekim, as in niv)—represents Nebushazban (cf. Jer.39.13), a good Babylonian name. This person’s title was Rabmag (i.e., a court official).
