(Heb. Zabbay', זִבִּי [prob. an error for זִכִּי, Zakkay']; Sept. Ζαβού; Vulg. Zabbai and Zachai), the name of two Hebrews.

1. The father of Baruch, which latter repaired part of the wall of Jerusalem after the Captivity (Nehemiah 3, 20). B.C. ante 446. He is perhaps the same with ZACCAI (See ZACCAI) (q.v.) of Ezra 2, 9.
