Heled
Excerpt from the Lexham Bible Dictionary, the most advanced Bible dictionary.
One of David’s mighty men and military commanders (1 Chr 11:30; 27:15). Called “Heldai” (חֶלְדַּי‎, chelday) in 1 Chr 27:15 and “Heleb” (חֵלֶב‎, chelev) in 2 Sam 23:29. The spelling “Heleb” is likely a textual error since other Hebrew manuscripts read “Heled.” He is identified as the son of Baanah of Netophah in 2 Sam 23:29 and 1 Chr 11:30. In 1 Chr 27:15, he is called “the Netophathite.”
