Ezra 3:2; Ezra 3:8; Nehemiah 12:1; Haggai 1:1; Haggai 1:12; Haggai 1:14; Haggai 2:2; Haggai 2:23; 1 Chronicles 3:17 SALATHIEL. Father of Zerubbabel in a legal point of view (Luke 3:27; Matthew 1:12). Pedaiah was natural father of Zerubbabel (1 Chronicles 3:18-19). Shealtiel dying without male issue, Pedaiah by the Levirate law married his brother's widow (Deuteronomy 25:5-10; Matthew 22:24-28). Shealtiel was son of Jeconiah not by natural birth but by heritage only on his mother's side. Luke 3:27; Luke 3:31, makes Shealtiel son of Neri, a descendant of David, through Nathan not Solomon; probably Jeconiah, (besides the Zedekiah in 1 Chronicles 3:16 who died childless), had another son, Assir, who left only a daughter, who, according to the law as to heiresses (Numbers 27:8; Numbers 36:8-9), married a man of her paternal tribe, namely, Neri, of David's family in Nathan's line. From this marriage sprang Shealtiel, Malchiram, and the other "sons," i.e. grandsons, of Jeconiah in 1 Chronicles 3:17-18.
