Calitas

CALITAS. KJV Apoc. form of Kelita.

International Standard Bible Encyclopedia (1915)

One of the Levites who put away their foreign wives at the request of Esdras (Ezra), 1 Esdras 9:23, "Colius, who was called Calitas." It is the Greek form of Hebrew Kelita (compare parallel passage, Ezr 10:23, elaiah, the same is "Kelita"). He is also named with those who explained the law when read to the people by Esdras (1 Esdras 9:48; compare Ne 8:7). It is not certain whether he is to be identified with the Kelita of Ne 10:10 (one of the Levites who signed the covenant made by Nehemiah). The word probably means "dwarf."
