5. One of the sons of Shemaiah, among the posterity of Zerubbabel (1Ch 3:22), and contemporary with the Nagge of Lu 3:25 (see Strong's Harm. and Expos. of the Gospels, p. 17). B.C. somewhat post 406.

This, however, is not only forbidden by other chronological notices, SEE DARIUS; SEE ZERUBBABEL, but rests on the too slender support for the genuineness of the text itself in question; where, as in ver. 5, we may suppose that a name is missing, or that the name Shechaniah itself has crept in from the latter verse, since it appears nowhere else as that of a family head. SEE SHECHANIAH.
