Saraias

International Standard Bible Encyclopedia (1915)

sa-ra’-yas, sa-ri’-as (Saraias; Latin, Sareus):

(1) = Seraiah, the high priest in the reign of Zedekiah (1 Esdras 5:5, compare 1Ch 6:14).

(2) Sareus the father of Ezra (2 Esdras 1:1) = "Seraiah" in Ezr 7:1, sometimes identified with Saraias under (1). He is probably identical with the "Azaraias" of 1 Esdras 8:1.
