Raami'ah (Heb. Raamyah', רִעִמיָה, thundesr of Jehovah; Sept. ῾Ρεελμά [v. r. Νααμία), one of the chief Israelites who returned from exile with Zerubbabel (Ne 7:7), B.C. 445. In the parallel list (Ezr 2:2) he is called REELAIAH, and the Greek equivalent of the name in the Sept. of Nehemiah appears to have arisen from a confusion of the two readings, unless, as Bulrrington (Geneal. ii, 68) suggests, ῾Ρεελμά is an error of the copyist for ῾Ρεελαία, the-uncial letters ai having been mistaken for m. In 1 Esdras 5:2 the name appears as REESALAS.
