zat'-u (zattu', meaning unknown):
Head of a large family that returned with Zerubbabel to Jerusalem from Babylon
(Ezra 2:8 ; 10:27 ; Nehemiah 7:13 ; 10:14 - 15). According to Ezra 10:27, some
of his sons had married foreign wives, and Zattu is named in Nehemiah 10:14 as
one of the chiefs who signed Nehemiah's covenant. Septuagint A also adds the name
before that of Shecaniah in Ezra 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 Nehemiah 10:14.
