Princes of the Bible

The title of “prince” is generally applied to the chief men of the state, the king and the sons of kings. It is also applied to the following:

Types

  1. The “princes of the provinces” (1 Kings 20:14) were the governors or lord-lieutenants of the provinces. So also the “princes” mentioned in Dan. 6:1, 3-4, 6-7 were the officers who administered the affairs of the provinces; the “satraps” (as rendered in Revised King James Version). These are also called “lieutenants” (Esther 3:12; 8:9; Revised King James Version, “satraps”).

  2. The promised Savior is called by DanielMessiah the PRINCE” (Hebrew: נָגִיד —transliteration: nagid ) (Daniel 9:25 —compare Acts 3:15; 5:31).

  3. The angel Michael is called (Dan. 12:1) a “prince” (Hebrew: sar, whence “Sarah,” the “princes”).
