(Heb. Maadyah', מִעִדְיָה, ornament of Jehovah; Septuag. Μααδι῎αςα,Vulg. Madia), one of the priests who returned to Jerusalem with Zerubbabel (Nehemiah 12:5); evidently the same with the MOADIAH (Heb. Moady'ah', מוֹעִדְיָה, festival of Jehovah; Sept. Μααδαί Vulg. Moadia), whose son Piltai is mentioned in Nehemiah 12:17 (where some connection with one Miniamin is obscurely noted); the true pointing being perhaps מֹעִדְיָה, Moadyah', which will make both forms coincide. B.C. 536.
