(1) The eponym of a Calebite family (1 Ch 4:2). The word "Reaiah" should probably be substituted for "Haroeh" in 1 Ch 2:52, but both forms may be corruptions.
(2) A Reubenite (1 Ch 5:5, the King James Version "Reaia").
(3) The family name of a company of Nethinim (Ezr 2:47; Neh 7:50 = 1 Esdras 5:31).
