(hee' lehm) Personal name meaning, “beat, strike.” Member of tribe of Asher (1 Chronicles 7:35), probably the same name with a copying change as Hotham (1 Chronicles 7:32). The same English spelling is derived from a different Hebrew word meaning, “power.” The name appears in
Zechariah 6:14 as a variant to Heldai in
Zechariah 6:10. See Heldai.
