Hawker's Poor Man's Concordance And Dictionary 
The name of one of the captives returned from Babylon. ( Ezra 2:40) If the word be derived, as it should seem likely to be, from Kadem, ancient, then is meant by Kadmiel, the ancient of God. Hence the Kadmonites, or ancient inhabitants of the east.

kad´mi - el ( קרמיאל , ḳadhmı̄'ēl , "before God," "priest"(?); "Cadmiel" in parallel lists in 1 Esdras 5:26,58 the King James Version; omitted in Septuagint Codex Vaticanus; Codex Alexandrinus reads kaı̄ Kadmiḗlon ): A L evite ( Ezra 2:40; Nehemiah 7:43 ), founder of a family whose descendants returned from captivity with Zerubbabel ( Ezra 2:1; Nehemiah 7:43; Nehemiah 12:1 , Nehemiah 12:8 ). He is named among those who praise God for the return ( Nehemiah 9:4 , Nehemiah 9:5; Nehemiah 12:24 ); was of those who "set forward" the work of the Lord's house ( Ezra 3:9; 1 Esdras 5:26, 58), and is again mentioned with those who "seal" the new Return Covenant ( Nehemiah 10:28 ff) after the re-establishment of worship ( Nehemiah 10:1 , Nehemiah 10:9 ).

(Heb. Kadmiel', קִדְמַיאֵל , Before God, I.E. his servant; Sept. Καδμιήλ ), one of the Levites who returned with Zerubbabel from the captivity ( Nehemiah 12:8), and assisted in the various reforms of that period, being always named in connection with Jeshua ( Ezra 3:9; Nehemiahvii, 43; comp. Ezra 3:9); sometimes only as a descendant in common of Hodaviah ( Ezra 2:40; Nehemiah 7:43; comp. Ezra 3:9), but once as a son ( Nehemiah 12:24). The length of time over which these notices seem to extend (B.C. 536-410) leads to the suspicion that they relate to two individuals (perhaps a brother and also a son of the Levite Jeshua), one of whom may have been concerned in the earlier events, and the other in the later.
