HARIM. 1. A lay family which appears in the list of the returning exiles ( Ezra 2:32 = Nehemiah 7:35 ); of those who had married foreign wives ( Ezra 10:31 ); and of those who signed the covenant ( Nehemiah 10:27 ). 2. A priestly family in the same lists ( Ezra 2:39 = Nehemiah 7:42 = 1Es 5:25 Harim; Ezra 10:21 , Nehemiah 10:5 ). The name is found also among ‘the priests and Levites that went up with Zerubbabel’ ( Nehemiah 12:3 , where it is miswritten Rehum ); among the heads of priestly families in the days of Joiakim ( Nehemiah 12:15 ); and as the third of the 24 courses ( 1 Chronicles 24:8 ). To which family Malchijah the son of Harim, one of the builders of the wall ( Nehemiah 3:11 ), belonged cannot be determined.
