Tobiah, The Children of

1. Returned with Zerubbabel; could not prove their Israelite blood (Ezra 2:59-60; Nehemiah 7:62).

2. Of the children of the captivity; came with Heldai and Jedaiah to Jerusalem with presents of gold and silver for building the temple. Crowns were made of them by Zechariah (Zechariah 6:9-15), at Jehovah's direction, and set on the high priest Joshua's head, as type of Messiah the King Priest who harmonizes in Himself the conflicting claims of justice as the King and love as the Father and Priest (Ephesians 2:13-17; Ephesians 1:10). The crowns were deposited in the temple to the honour of the donors (compare Acts 10:4), a memorial of Joshua's coronation. The making of the crowns of gold from afar, i.e. from the Jews from Babylon, typified the return of the dispersed Israelites from afar (Isaiah 60:9) to the King of the Jews at Jerusalem, and secondarily the conversion of the Gentiles "far off" (Acts 2:39; Ephesians 2:12-17; Isaiah 60:10; Isaiah 57:19; Zechariah 2:11; Zechariah 8:22-23).
