Sanbal'lat. (strength). A Moabite, of Horonaim. Nehemiah 2:10; Nehemiah 2:13; Nehemiah 13:28. He held, apparently, some command in Samaria, at the time Nehemiah was preparing to rebuild the walls of Jerusalem, B.C. 445, Nehemiah 4:2, and from the moment of Nehemiah's arrival in Judea, he set himself to oppose every measure, for the welfare of Jerusalem. The only other incident in his life is his alliance with the high priest's family, by the marriage of his daughter, with one of the grandsons of Eliashib; but the expulsion from the priesthood of the guilty son of Joiada by Nehemiah promptly followed. Here the scriptural narrative ends.
