    HELDAI

    hel'-da-i (chelday):

    (1) A captain of the temple-service, appointed for the 12th month (1 Chronicles 27:15). Same as Heled (cheledh) in parallel list (compare 1 Chronicles 11:30), and is probably also to be identified with Heleb, son of Baanah the Metophathite, one of David's heroic leaders (2 Samuel 23:29).

    (2) One of a company of Jews who brought gifts of gold and silver from Babylon to assist the exiles under Zerubbabel (Zechariah 6:10).
