Ezra 8:18; Ezra 8:24. A Levite of the family of Mahli, son of Merari. One of the first ministers for the house of God who joined Ezra at the river Ahava. With Hashabiah, etc., he had charge of the vessels and gifts which the king, his lords, and all Israel, had offered. Sherebiah also assisted Ezra at the reading of the law, in making the people understand its sense (Nehemiah 8:7). He took part in the confession and thanksgiving at the fast after the feast of tabernacles (Nehemiah 9:4-5); and signed the covenant (Nehemiah 10:12), and was over the psalmody (Nehemiah 12:8; Nehemiah 12:24).
