Ezra 2:13 the people of Adonikam, six hundred and sixty-six, (666)...

For a meaning of the name Adonikam is "My Lord Has Risen." 

Adonikam Adonikam


There's only one man named Adonikam in the Bible, although he plays no role in it. His family is reported by both Ezra to be among the first wave to returned from exile, who counts 666 members (2:13).

The number of this clan of people returning from the first diaspora after seventy years in Babylon is the only other place in scripture where we find this strange reference to 666.
Is interesting to some people that the name of the man referred to in that case means: "My Lord Has Risen."  This certainly seems to fit well for those Jews incarcerated and detained in the death camps just at the advent of what would be there return to the Holy Land.

What is unique in both cases is that the Jews returned to Israel after a long spell of exile.  The metaphor may be intended in that, after Hitler fell, Israel became a state again. That was identical to the situation when the Jews returned from the captivity in the day of Daniel, for this one man and his people, mentioned for no other reason apparently.


Alfred Jones (Dictionary of Old Testament Proper Names) goes with the derivation qim(qim), meaning adversary, and reads rather oddly Lord Of Enemies.

This too seems appropriate to Rev 13 and the appellation of the number to Hitler, certainly the Lord of the Jewish enemy.

MEANING OF THIS NAME ASSOCIATED WITH 666

As shown in Mark 5:41, this verb part of this name also exists in Aramaic. 
Jesus uses it when He raises Jairus' daughter from the dead by saying, "talitha kum".

The point being here, that the reference to 666, as pointing out the Lord of the Jews' enemy, (Hitler), while in contrast, also suggesting the pleasnant outcome of freedom and return to the Holy Lands suggests that this interpretation of 666 is support sola scripture to this degree, as weak as that may be.
