A Levite who had married a foreign wife, but, at the solicitation of Ezra, repudiated her (I Esd. 9:23). Ezra 10:23 gives "Kelaiah," a glossator, however, giving the collateral form "Kelita." He is perhaps identical with the "Calitas" who helped Ezra to explain the Law (I Esd. 9:48 in Nehemiah 8:7 given as "Kelita").
