Sanballat [N] [E] [H]

(strength ), a Moabite of Horonaim. ( Nehemiah 2:10 Nehemiah 2:13 ; 13:28 ) He held apparently some command in Samaria at the time Nehemiah was preparing to rebuild the walls of Jerusalem, B.C. 445, ( Nehemiah 4:2 ) and from the moment of Nehemiahs arrival in Judea he set himself to oppose every measure for the welfare of Jerusalem. The only other incident in his life is his alliance with the high priests family by the marriage of his daughter with one of the grandsons of Eliashib; but the expulsion from the priesthood of the guilty son of Joiada by Nehemiah promptly followed. Here the scriptural narrative ends.
