PALTITE (păl'tīt, Heb. paltî, delivered). The Gentile name of Helez, one of David’s valiant men. Called the Pelonite (1Chr.11.27; 1Chr.27.10). Same as Palti.

PALTITE păl’ tīt (הַפַּלְטִ֔י). A description applied to Helez, one of David’s mighty men (2 Sam 23:26). He was an inhabitant of Beth-Pelet. In 1 Chronicles 11:27 he is called a “Pelonite,” which should prob. be corrected to “the Paltite.”

International Standard Bible Encyclopedia (1915)

(palTi (as Palti); The Septuagint has: Codex Vaticanus Kelothei; Codex Alexandrinus Phellonei): The description occurs but once in this form and is then applied to Helez, one of David’s 30 valiant men (2Sa 23:26). Helez’ name, however, occurs in 1Ch 11:27 and 27:10 as the "Pelonite." Doubtless there is some confusion of words. The word may be given as a patronymic of Palti, or it may designate a native of the village of Beth-pelet mentioned in Jos 15:27 and Ne 11:26 as being in Lower Judah. Helez, however, is described as "of the children of Ephraim" in 1Ch 27:10.
