Maaidi'ah (Heb. Maadyah', מִעִדיָה, ornament of Jehovah; Septuag. Μααδι῎αςα,Vulg. Madia), one of the priests who returned to Jerusalem with Zerubbabel (Ne 12:5); evidently the same with the MOADIAH (Heb. Moady'ah', מוֹעִדיָה, festival of Jehovah; Sept. Μααδαί Vulg. Moadia), whose son Piltai is mentioned in verse 17 (where some connection with one Miniamin is obscurely noted); the true pointing being perhaps מֹעִדיָה, Moadyah', which will make both forms coincide. B.C. 536.
