Mijamin (Mij´uh-min)

1 The ancestral head of the sixth course of priests (1Chr 24:9). 2 A Levite who returned with Zerubbabel from the Babylonian captivity (Neh 12:5); he is possibly the same Levite who took a foreign wife (Ezra 10:25) and signed the covenant to keep the law (Neh 10:7). Some scholars think “Miniamin” refers to the same person (Neh 12:17; Neh 12:41), although the connection is not clear.
