(Heb. Palti', פִּלְטַי, same as Palti [q.v.]; Sept. Φαλτί ), the Gentile name of Helez, one of David's captains (2 Samuel 23:26); the same name, probably, as PELONITE (See PELONITE) (q.v.) in the parallel passage ( Chronicles 11:27), and such seems to have been the reading followed by the Alex. MS. in 2 Samuel. The Peshito-Syriac, however, supports the Hebrew, "Cholots of Pelat." But in 1 Chronicles 27:10, "Helez the Pelonite," of the tribe of Ephraim is again mentioned as captain of 24,000 men of David's army for the seventh month, and the balance of evidence therefore inclines to "Pelonite" as the true reading. The variation arose from a confusion between the letters ונ and ט . In the Syriac of 1 Chronicles both readings are combined, and Helez is described as "of Palton."
