🔼The name Peullethai in the Bible

The name Peullethai occurs only once in the Bible. He is listed as the eighth son of Obed-edom, one of the Korahite gatekeepers during the reign of king David (1 Chronicles 26:5).

🔼Etymology of the name Peullethai

The name Peullethai consists of two elements. The base of our name comes from the verb פעל (pa'al), meaning to do, and, more specifically, is probably a variant of the noun פעלה (pe'ulla), meaning either work or deed:

The letter י (yod) upon which our name ends, may either create an adjective (Effortful), a possessive form (my Deed/Reward), or may be a remnant of יה (Yah), which is short for יהוה, which is the name YHWH, or Yahweh.

🔼Peullethai meaning

For a meaning of the name Peullethai, both NOBSE Study Bible Name List and Jones' Dictionary of Old Testament Proper Names go with the final yod as remnant of the name YHWH. NOBSE translates our name with Reward Of Yahweh and Jones reads Wages Of The Lord. BDB Theological Dictionary does not offer an explanation of our name but does list it under the verb פעל (pa'al), meaning to do.
