BAVVAI băv’ ī (בַּוַּ֖י, KJV BAVAI). A Levite; son of Henadad; one of those who helped to rebuild the wall of Jerusalem after the Exile (Neh 3:18); called Binnui in v. 24. There is textual evidence that Bavvai may be a corruption of Binnui.

International Standard Bible Encyclopedia (1915)

(bawway; Septuagint Codex Alexandrinus, Benei; Codex Vaticanus, Bedei; the King James Version Bavai, "wisher" (?) (Ne 3:18)): Perhaps identical with or a brother of Binnui (Ne 3:24). See Binnui. Bavvai, "the son of Henadad, the ruler of half the district of Keilah," was of a Levitical family. He is mentioned as one of those who repaired the wall of Jerusalem after the return from Babylon (Ne 3:17 f).
