One who was sent by the captive Jews in Babylon to Jerusalem to inquire of the priests there concerning fasting, and other things (Zech. 7:2).

Meta. A thought of power that is related to and in association with the will faculty in the individual (friend of Melech, associate of the king, regal color, i. e., purple, purple representing power and the king representing the will).
