Who is…

Hebrew: מְנִי —transliteration: Meni —meaning: destiny

also known as: Destiny

This pagan female diety is mentioned in Isaiah 65:11 NKJV:

But you are those who forsake the Lord,
Who forget My holy mountain,
Who prepare a table for Gad,
And who furnish a drink offering for Meni.

Most translations simply state her name as “Destiny” (Isaiah 65:11 NASB, ESV, NIV).

“goddess of destiny” —Isaiah 65:11 GW

This was probably represented by an idol which the captive Israelites worshipped following the example of the Babylonians
