The Benjaminites living in Jerusalem (Neh 11:7-11:9)

“These are the Benjaminites. Sallu was the son of Meshullam, son of Joed, son of Pedaiah, son of Kolaiah, son of Maaseiah, son of Ithiel, son of Jeshaiah. His brothers Gabbai and Sallai had a group of nine hundred twenty-eight. Joel son of Zichri was their overseer. Judah the son of Hassenuah was second in charge of the city.”

Sallu was the leading Benjaminite.   It is interesting to note the role of the Benjaminites, since Jerusalem was technically in the Benjamin territory. His brothers Gabbai and Sallai led a group of 928. However Joel was in charge with Judah the 2nd in command.
