also known as: Zorobabel and Sheshbazzar
His name is spelled “Zorobabel” in Matthew 1:12 KJV.
Zerubbabel is called the son of Salathiel or Shealtiel in Haggai 1:1 KJV. However, in Chronicles he is called the son of Pedaiah (1 Chronicles 3:17-19). Both are true, according to the frequent Hebrew usage of the word “son.” He was a grandson or nephew of Salathiel, and the son of Pedaiah.
In the first year of Cyrus, king of Persia, he led the first band of Jews, numbering 42,360 (Ezra 2:64), exclusive of a large number of servants, who returned from captivity at the close of the 70 years.
