ZATTU

zat'-u (zattu', meaning unknown):

Head of a large family that returned with Zerubbabel to Jerusalem from Babylon (Ezra 2:8; 10:27; Nehemiah 7:13; 10:14-15). According to Ezra 10:27, some of his sons had married foreign wives, and Zattu is named in Nehemiah 10:14 as one of the chiefs who signed Nehemiah's covenant. Septuagint A also adds the name before that of Shecaniah in Ezra 8:5, and so we should read, "And of the sons of Zattu, Shecaniah .... "; so 1 Esdras 8:32 has Zathoes. the King James Version has "Zatthu" in Neb 10:14.
