International Standard Bible Encyclopedia

ra-a-mi'-a (ra'amyah; Codex Vaticanus Naamia; Codex Alexandrinus, Rheelma):

One of the leading men who returned with Zerubbabel from captivity (Nehemiah 7:7). In the corresponding passage in Ezra 2:2, where the same list is named, a slight variation in form is given. "Reelaiah" is the name found in this passage. Doubtless, one is a corruption of the other. Both have the same root meanings generally been identified with Regina, mentioned by Ptolemy and Steph. Byzantr as a city in Southeastern Arabia on the shores of the Persian Gulf. The Septuagint (Rhegma) itself supposes this site. But the Arabic name of the city here indicated is spelled with a "g" and so gives rise to a phonological difficulty. A more probable identification has been found in the Sabean ra'mah in Southwestern Arabia near Me'in in the north of Marib. Me'in was the capital of the old Minaean kingdom.
