Pelatiah (Pel´uh-ti´uh; Heb., “Yah[weh] has rescued”)

1 A descendant of David and in the royal lineage of the kings of Judah through Zerubbabel (1Chr 3:21). 2 One of the leaders of the Simeonite clan of Ishi who drove out the Amalekites and settled on Mt. Seir (Edom). 3 A leader of the people in postexilic Jerusalem who signed the covenant to keep the law (Neh 10:22). 4 A corrupt leader in Jerusalem during the exile seen by Ezekiel in a vision; he symbolized an attitude of arrogant false security and a misunderstanding of God’s purposes in the exile. His death represented God’s judgment on such a distorted perspective (Ezek 11:1-13).
