Nehemias

ne-he-mi'-as: Greek form of the Hebrew Nehemiah.

See a list of verses on NEHEMIAH in the Bible.

(1) Neemias, one of the leaders of the return under Zerubbabel (1 Esdras 5:8) = "Nehemiah" of Ezr 2:2; Ne 7:7.

(2) Neemias, Codex Vaticanus Naimias, the prophet Nehemiah (1 Esdras 5:40 where the King James Version margin reads "Nehemias who also is Atharias"). Neither Nehemias nor Attharias is found in the parallel Ezr 2:63; Ne 7:65, but ha-tirshatha' = Tirshatha, "the governor," by whom Zerubbabel must be intended. Thus, the Hebrew word for "governor" has been converted into a proper name and by some blunder the name Nehemiah inserted, perhaps because he also was known by the title of "governor."
