sal´ā́ - ı̄ , sal´ı̄ ( סלּי , ṣallay ; Σαλώμ , Salṓm ; Codex Alexandrinus Σαλώ , Salṓ , with variants):

(1) Eponym of a Benjamite family which settled at Jerusalem after the return, descendants of "Sallu" (1 Chronicles 9:7 ; Nehemiah 11:7 , Nehemiah 11:8 ); the pedigrees of Sallu differ decidedly in the two passages. Curtis (ICC ) suggests that "son of Hodaviah, the son of Hassenuah" (Chronicles) is a corruption or derivation of "Judah the son of Hassenuah" (Nehemiah).

(2) Name of a priestly family (Nehemiah 12:20 ), called "Sallu" in Nehemiah 12:7 .
