(Heb. Kadmiel', קִדְמַיאֵל , before God, i.e. his servant; Sept. Καδμιήλ ), one of the Levites who returned with Zerubbabel from the captivity (Nehemiah 12:8), and assisted in the various reforms of that period, being always named in connection with Jeshua (Ezra 3:9; Nehemiahvii, 43; comp. Ezra 3:9); sometimes only as a descendant in common of Hodaviah (Ezra 2:40; Nehemiah 7:43; comp. Ezra 3:9), but once as a son (Nehemiah 12:24). The length of time over which these notices seem to extend (B.C. 536-410) leads to the suspicion that they relate to two individuals (perhaps a brother and also a son of the Levite Jeshua), one of whom may have been concerned in the earlier events, and the other in the later.
