zar´a - kēz (Codex Alexandrinus and Fritzsche, Ζαράκης , Zarákēs ; Codex Vaticanus and Swete, Ζάριος , Zários ; Vulgate (Jerome's Latin Bible, 390-405 A.D.) Zaracelem ; the King James Version Zaraces ): Occurs in the difficult passage, 1 Esdras 1:38, as the equivalent of Jehoahaz ( 2 Kings 23:34 ) and Joahaz (2 Chronicles 36:4 ), the brother of Eliakim (Jehoiakim or JOAKIM (which see)). According to 1 Esdras 1:38, Joakim apparently apprehended his brother, Zarakes, and brought him up out of Egypt, whither he must have been previously taken by Necoh, whereas 2 Kings and 2 Chronicles only state that Necoh took Joahaz (Zarakes) to Egypt.
