Metaphysical meaning of Salmai (mbd)
Salmai (A. V., Shalmai), sal'-mai (Heb.)--Jah is recompenser; my recompense; my thanks; my garment.

One of the Nethinim whose descendants returned from the Babylonian captivity (Neh. 7:48). He is called Shamlai in Ezra 2:46.

Meta. The serving thought in consciousness that rejoices greatly, gives praise and thanksgiving to God, because it perceives that all good comes from or through Jehovah. It is learning that all service should be done as to the Lord and that He is the compensator, not man. (Jah is recompenser, my thanks, my garment, the garment here being the praise and thanksgiving with which one clothes himself. "Put on thy beautiful garments, O Jerusalem." "All thy garments smell of myrrh, and aloes, end cassia.")
