HARIM

ha'-rim (charim): A family name.
(1) A non-priestly family that returned from captivity with Zerubbabel (Ezr 2:32; Neh 7:35); mentioned among those who married foreign wives (Ezr 10:31); also mentioned among those who renewed the covenant (Neh 10:27).
(2) A priestly family returning with Zerubbabel (Ezr 2:39; Neh 7:42; 12:3,15 (see REHUM)); members of this family covenanted to put away their foreign wives (Ezr 10:21; Neh 10:5). A family of this name appears as the third of the priestly courses in the days of David and Solomon (1 Ch 24:8).
