HELDAI ():

1. Captain of the service of the Temple for the twelfth month in the time of David; a native of Netophah and a descendant of Othniel (I Chron. xxvii. 15). In the parallel list in I Chron. xi. 30 his name is given as "Heled." 2. One of those who returned from captivity with Zerubbabel, and who, with others, gave Zechariah gold and silver for the making of crowns as memorials (Zech. vi. 10-14). In verse 14 the name is changed to "Helem"; the Peshiṭta gives "Holdai" and "Huldai."
