bin´ū̇ -ı̄ ( בּנּוּי , binnūy , a proper name, "a building up"):

(1) A L evite, living in the time of Ezra (Ezra 8:33; Nehemiah 10:9; Nehemiah 12:8 ).

(2) One of the benē Paḥath -mō'abh who had taken foreign wives (Ezra 10:30 - B alnuus of 1 Esdras 9:31) and one of the , benē Bānı̄ (Ezra 10:38 ) who had also intermarried.

(3) The son of Henadad, who built part of the wall of Jerusalem (Nehemiah 3:24 ), and sealed the covenant with Nehemiah (Nehemiah 10:9 ). In all probability he is identical with "Bavvai, the son of Henadad" mentioned in Nehemiah 3:18 . "Bavvai" is either a corruption of "Binnui," or is the name of the Levitical house of which Bavvai was the chief representative. Binnui is mentioned in Nehemiah 10:9 as a leading Levite, and, besides, the names in these verses are obviously those of priests and Levites; so the former theory is probably correct.

(4) Head of a family who returned with Zerubbabel (Nehemiah 7:15; Ezra 2:10 ).
