Sala'thiel (Heb. Shealtiel', שּׁאִלתַּיאֵל, asked of God; Sept. and New Test. Σαλαθιήλ; more correctly, "Shealtiel," in the A.V. in Ezr 3; Ezr 2; Ne 12:I Hag. 1, 12, 14; 2, 2). It is customary to distinguish two of this name, from the apparent difference of parentage in Mt 1; Mt 12 and Luke 3, 27, but probably they were one, and the manner of keeping the Jewish records will readily suggest methods of reconciling the passages (comp. Strong, Harmony and Expos. of the Gospels, p. 16). SEE GENEALOGY OF CHRIST. Salathiel was the son of Jeconiah, perhaps grandson of Neri (Lu 3:27), and father of Zerubbabel (1Ch 3; 1Ch 17; Ezr 3; Ezr 2; Ne 12:1; Hag 1:12,14; Hag 2:2; Mt 1:12; Lu 3:27. SEE SHEALTIEL.
