Zich´ri (renowned), an Ephraimite, probably one of the chiefs of the tribe, and one of the generals of Pekah king of Israel. It has been supposed that he took advantage of the victory of this monarch over the army of Judah to penetrate into Jerusalem, where he slew one of the sons of Ahaz, the governor of the palace, and the king's chief minister or favorite. It is difficult without this supposition to explain . There is some probability in the conjecture, that he was the 'Tabeal's son whom Pekah and Rezin designed to set upon the throne of Judah' [TABEAL].
