(Heb. Reayah', רְאָיָה , seen of Jehovah), the name of three Hebrews.
1. (Sept. ῾Ράδα v. r. ῾Ρεϊά ) A "son" of Shobal son of Judah (1 Chronicles 4:2). B.C. post 1658. He is apparently designated by the epithet Haroeh (הָרֹאֶה , ha-Roeh, the seer; Sept. Ἀραά, Vulg. qui videbat; evidently a mere corruption of Reaiah). (See SHOBAL).
2. (Sept. ῾Ρηχά ) The son of Micah and father of Baal, apparently phylarchs of the tribe of Reulben not long before the invasion of Tiglath-Pileser (1 Chronicles 5:5, A.V. "Reaia"). B.C. ante 720.
3. (Sept.' ῾Ραϊά v. r. ῾Ρααϊά, etc.) One of the Nethinim whose posterity returned from Babylon with Zerubbabel (Ezra 2:47; Nehemiah 7:50). B.C. ante 536.
