Neko'da (Heb. Nekoda', נקוֹדָא, distinguished; Sept. Νεκωδά, v.r. Νεχωδά and Νεκωδάν), the head of a family of the "Temple servants" who returned with Zerubbabel from Babylon (Ezr 2:48; Ne 7:50). B.C. 535. A man of the same name is mentioned in Ezr 2:60; Ne 7:62, as the progenitor of certain persons who on the return from Babylon had lost their pedigree, from which it would seem that they claimed to be Israelites; but as the Nethinim are mentioned immediately before, and neither of the associated names occurs again, we may presume that they were finally determined to be descendants of the above-named non-Israelite (see Keil, ad loc.). SEE NETHINIM.
