kad'-mi-el (qadhmi'el, "before God," "priest"(?); "Cadmiel" in parallel lists in 1 Esdras 5:26,58 the King James Version; omitted in Septuagint Codex Vaticanus; Codex Alexandrinus reads kai Kadmielon):
A Levite (Ezra 2:40; Nehemiah 7:43), founder of a family whose descendants returned from captivity with Zerubbabel (Ezra 2:1; Nehemiah 7:43; 12:1,8). He is named among those who praise God for the return (Nehemiah 9:4,5; 12:24); was of those who "set forward" the work of the Lord's house (Ezra 3:9; 1 Esdras 5:26,58), and is again mentioned with those who "seal" the new Return Covenant (Nehemiah 10:28) after the re-establishment of worship (Nehemiah 10:1,9).
