Meaning & History
Member of Gadianton band, tenth known Nephite chief judge (c. 26 BC), eventually succeeded by Lachoneus. How and when he began his reign as chief judge is not known; his first appearance in the Book of Mormon is when Nephi, son of Helaman, prophesied his murder by the hand of his brother, Seantum. To give the wicked Nephites a sign that he, Nephi, was a prophet, he prophesied this murder to his people. Seezoram should not be confused with Cezoram, another Nephite chief judge who was assassinated earlier.
