Meaning:One who sees God, God has seen
Hazael is a boy’s name of Hebrew origin, meaning “one who sees God” or “God has seen.” During the 9th century BCE, King Hazael reigned the Syrian city of Damascus after the death of Ben-Hadad. When Ben-Hadad was ill, he sent Hazael to the prophet Elisha to ask about his recovery chances. Elisha prophesied that the reigning King would die and Hazael would succeed him. Hazael returned to Ben-Hadad to kill him and ruled for many years following his death. Although appearing brutal and unkind, Hazael was featured at length in the Torah and has become a well-known biblical and cultural figure throughout the centuries. If you want to give baby a name that helps you share your faith with them, Hazael packs plenty of power.
