Father of Zerubbabel in a legal point of view (Luke 3:27; Matthew 1:12). Pedaiah was natural father of Zerubbabel (1 Chronicles 3:18-19). Shealtiel dying without male issue, Pedaiah by the Levirate law married his brother's widow (Deuteronomy 25:5-10; Matthew 22:24-28). Shealtiel was son of Jeconiah not by natural birth but by heritage only on his mother's side. Luke 3:27; Luke 3:31, makes Shealtiel son of Neri, a descendant of David, through Nathan not Solomon; probably Jeconiah, (besides the Zedekiah in 1 Chronicles 3:16 who died childless), had another son, Assir, who left only a daughter, who, according to the law as to heiresses (Numbers 27:8; Numbers 36:8-9), married a man of her paternal tribe, namely, Neri, of David's family in Nathan's line. From this marriage sprang Shealtiel, Malchiram, and the other "sons," i.e. grandsons, of Jeconiah in 1 Chronicles 3:17-18.

Shealtiel in Wikipedia Shealtiel (Hebrew: שְׁאַלְתִּיאֵל‎, Shəaltēl) or Greek-derived variant Salathiel (Greek: Σαλαθιηλ, Salăthiēl) is a significant but problematic member in the genealogies of the kings of Judah, all of whom belong to the Davidic Dynasty, being the descendants of King David through his son King Solomon. In Hebrew, the name Shealtiel means, Shəalt Ēl, "I asked El (for this child)". The name acknowledges that the son is an answer to the parents' prayer to God (El) to help them conceive and birth a child. Many Hebrew names similarly express the importance of, difficulty of, and thankfulness for a successful pregnancy. In the Deuterocanonical apocalyptic work 2 Esdras, the author claims to be "Ezra, who is also called Shealtiel" (3:1). For this reason, this work is also sometimes known as Ezra Shealtiel. However, the priestly prophet Ezra could not be the same Shealtiel of the royal genealogies, since his own lineage is given in Book of Ezra 7:1, and in 2 Esdras 1:1 (Latin version), which agree in making him the son of Seraiah, and a Levite...

Shealtiel Scripture - Haggia 2:23 In that day, saith the LORD of hosts, will I take thee, O Zerubbabel, my servant, the son of Shealtiel, saith the LORD, and will make thee as a signet: for I have chosen thee, saith the LORD of hosts.
