    ha'-rim (charim):

    A family name.

    (1) A non-priestly family that returned from captivity with Zerubbabel (Ezra 2:32; Nehemiah 7:35); mentioned among those who married foreign wives (Ezra 10:31); also mentioned among those who renewed the covenant (Nehemiah 10:27).

    (2) A priestly family returning with Zerubbabel (Ezra 2:39; Nehemiah 7:42; 12:3,15 (see REHUM)); members of this family covenanted to put away their foreign wives (Ezra 10:21; Nehemiah 10:5). A family of this name appears as the third of the priestly courses in the days of David and Solomon (1 Chronicles 24:8).

    (3) In Nehemiah 3:11 is mentioned Malchijah, son of Harim, one of the wall-builders. Which family is here designated is uncertain.
