(1) A descendant of David (1 Ch 3:24).

great chamber in the temple (Neh 13:5); and one of his
grandsons, a son of Joiada, married a daughter of Sanballat
the Horonite and was for this expelled from the community by
Nehemiah (Neh 13:28).
(4, 5, 6) Three Israelites, one a "singer," who had married
foreign wives (Ezr 10:24,27,36).
(7) Father of Jehohanan (Ezr 10:6); probably identical with
(3) above. Called Eliasib in 1 Esdras 9:1.
