Hebrew

Strongs #02240: awtz Zattuw'

Zattu = "brightness of him"

1) a family of exiles who returned with Zerubbabel

2240 Zattuw' zat-too'

of uncertain derivation; Zattu, an Israelite:-Zattu.

Zattu [EBD]

id., one whose descendants returned from the Captivity with Zerubbabel (Ezra 2:8; Neh. 7:13); probably the same as Zatthu.

Zattu [NAVE]

ZATTU
1. One whose descendants returned with Zerubbabel, Ezra 2:8; 10:27; Neh. 7:13.
2. Probably identical with Zatthu. One who sealed the covenant with Nehemiah, Neh. 10:14.

ZATTU [SMITH]

The sons of Zattu were a family of laymen of Israel who returned with Zerubbabel. (Ezra 2:8; Nehemiah 7:13)

ZATTU [ISBE]

ZATTU - zat'-u (zattu', meaning unknown): Head of a large family that returned with Zerubbabel to Jerusalem from Babylon (Ezr 2:8; 10:27; Neh 7:13; 10:14 (15)). According to Ezr 10:27, some of his sons had married foreign wives, and Zattu is named in Neh 10:14 as one of the chiefs who signed Nehemiah's covenant. Septuagint A also adds the name before that of Shecaniah in Ezr 8:5, and so we should read, "And of the sons of Zattu, Shecaniah .... "; so 1 Esdras 8:32 has Zathoes. the King James Version has "Zatthu" in Neb 10:14.
