Sabbateus

SABBATEUS. ASV Apoc. form of Shabbethai.

International Standard Bible Encyclopedia (1915)

One of the three (or rather two, for "Levis" = Levite) "assessors" in the investigation held concerning "foreign wives" (1 Esdras 9:14) = "Shabbethai the Levite" in Ezr 10:15. He is probably the "Sabateus," one of the Levites who expounded the Law (1 Esdras 9:48), and so = the "Shabbethai" in Ne 8:7.
