(Heb. Zattu', זִתּוּא , pleasant; Sept. Ζαθουιά v.r. Ζαθθουά, Ζατθουά, etc.; Vulg. Zethua, Zethu), an Israelite whose "sons" to the number of 945 (or 845) returned from Babylon with Zerubbabel (Ezra 2, 8; Nehemiah 7:13); and another company of them returned with Ezra, although his name has accidentally dropped out of the text in Ezra 8:5, as we learn from the Sept and the Apocryphal parallel (1 Esdras 8:32), which both read "of the sons of Zathoe, Zechenias son of Aziel [orJezelus]" (Keil, Comment. ad loc.). B.C. ante 536. Several of these descendants renounced their Gentile wives (Ezra 10:27).
