Ma'ith (Μαάθ, of unknown, but prob. Heb. origin), a person named as the son of Mattathias and father of Nagge (Neariah), in Christ's maternal ancestry (Lu 3:26); but, as no such name occurs in the pedigree in the O.T., and as it would here unduly extend the time of the lineage, we may reasonably conjecture this name has been accidentally interpolated from the Matthat of verse 24. (See Dr. Barrett, in Clarke's Comment. ad loc.)
