"When Nevuchadnetzar heard these words, he said to his men: "Kill them, for they have transgressed the king's word!"
Answered one of the Jews, whose name was Paltiya ben Yehoyadah, and said: "The flock that was handed by its owner to the shepherd and a wolf came and ate some of the flock, from whom should [the owner] demand [payment for] his flock?"
Nevuchadnetzar answered: "From the shepherd, of course."
Said Paltiya: "Your ears should hear the words that come out of your own mouth!"
"And so the king commanded that King Tzidkiyahu be brought and his iron and bronze shackles be removed, and his torn clothes be replaced." (translation based on Patshegen Haketav, the Hebrew translation of Targum Sheni)
Mentioning his name seemed kind of random to me1, so I was wondering whether there's anymore information about him out there?
1 Although the 'ben Yehoyadah' part might be an echo of two other, better-known, men mentioned in the passage, Benayahu ben Yehoyadah and Zecharaiah ben Yehoyadah (the prophet killed in the Temple). However, while those two were kohanim, the passage states Paltiya was 'of Yisrael' or 'one of the Jews' (per Patshegen Haketav). Edit: In his commentary on Esther "Yonah Dedahava", Rabbi Elchanan Gibli brings a version of the Targum that says Paltiya was a kohen. I have no idea which version is more accurate.
