rḗ - el´i - as (Codex Alexandrinus Ῥεέλιας , Rheélias (Fritzschel); Codex Vaticanus followed by Swete, Βορολείας , Boroleı́as ; the King James Version Reelius ): One of the "leaders" with Zerubbabel in the return from exile (1 Esdras 5:8, margin "Reelaiah"). It occupies the place of "Bigvai" in Ezra 2:2; Nehemiah 7:7 , but in form it must be the equivalent of "Reelaiah" of Ezr and "Raamiah" of Nehemiah. It is perhaps a duplicate of "Resaias."
