1. A high priest in the days of Nehemiah, who took part in rebuilding of the wall of Jerusalem, Ne 3:1. The same person probably was afterwards censured for profaning the temple, by giving the use of one of its chambers to a heathen and an Ammonite, his relative, De 23:3-4; Ne 12:10; 13:1-9.

3. High priest when Nehemiah rebuilt the walls (Ne 3:1-21). Energetic in building the sheepgate, sanctifying and setting up its doors; but relationship to Tobiah the Ammonite outweighed regard for the sanctity of the temple. Nehemiah was angry with him for preparing a room therein for his pagan connection (Ne 13:4-7), in opposition to God's prohibition (De 23:3-4). His grandson too had married the pagan Horonite Sanballat's daughter (Ne 13:28). Ungodly alliances are a snare to religious professors (2Co 6:14-18; Mt 10:37). "Therefore (says Nehemiah) I chased him from me. Remember them, O my God, because they have defiled the priesthood and the covenant of the priesthood." His genealogy is given (Ne 12:10,22), see Ezr 10:6.

4. Ezr 10:24.

1. The high priest who was contemporary with Nehemiah. He was son of Joiakim, grandson of Jeshua the son of Jozadak, the contemporary of Zerubbabel (Ne 12:10; Ezr 3:1), and father of Joiada (Ne 12:10; 13:28). He assisted in the rebuilding of the walls of Jerus, during Nehemiah's governorship (Ne 3:1). He can have had no sympathy with the exclusive policy of Ezra and Nehemiah, for both he himself and members of his family allied themselves with the leading foreign opponents of Nehemiah. See Joiada, No. 2, Tobiah, and Sanballat. 2. A singer of the time of Ezra, who had married a foreign wife (Ezr 10:24); called in 1Es 9:24 Eliasibus. 3. An Israelite of the family of Zattu (Ezr 10:27; in 1Es 9:28 Eliasimus); and 4. another of the family of Bani (Ezr 10:36; called in 1Es 9:34 Enasibus), who had married foreign wives. 5. A son of Elioenai (1Ch 3:24). 6. The name of a priestly house (1Ch 24:12). 7. Father of Jehohanan, to whose chamber in the Temple Ezra resorted (Ezr 10:6); possibly identical with No. 1.
