rē´hum ( רחוּם , reḥūm , or רחם , reḥum ):

(1) One of the twelve heads of the Jewish community returning from captivity with Zerubbabel (Ezra 2:2; Nehemiah 7:7 (by a copyist's error "Nehum"); Nehemiah 12:3; 1 Esdras 5:8, "Roimus").

(2) A P ersian officer of high rank (literally, "master of judgment, taste, reason") who with others wrote a letter against Jerusalem to King Artaxerxes (Ezra 4:8 , Ezra 4:9 , Ezra 4:17 , Ezra 4:23 ).

(3) Son of Bani, a Levite, one of the wall-builders under Nehemiah (Nehemiah 3:17 ).

(4) One of the signers of the covenant in Nehemiah 10:25 .

(5) In Nehemiah 12:3 (omitted in the Septuagint) one Rehum is mentioned with those who went up with Zerubbabel. It is probable that we should read here "Harim" ( חרם , ḥārı̄m for רחוּם , reḥūm of Nehemiah 12:15 ).
