One whose family returned from exile with Zerubbabel (Ezra.2.15; Neh.7.20).One whose posterity came back with Ezra (Ezra.8.6).The name of a family sealing the covenant (Neh.10.16). These are all thought to be the same family. The list in Ezra.2.1-Ezra.2.70 appears to include both exiles who returned with Zerubbabel and some who returned later. The family included “chiefs of the people” (Neh.10.14).
