Mar Shimun X Eliyah was the fifth Patriarch of the Chaldean Catholic Church, from c. 1600 to c. 1638.

He succeeded Patriarch Shimun IX Dinkha and moved the seat of the patriarchate of Babylon of the Chaldean Catholic church from Urmia to Salmas.

Mar Shimun X Eliyah was not formally recognized by Rome as he was part of the hereditary Shimun line of Patriarchs reintroduced by his predecessor Shimun IX Dinkha. Hereditary succession is an unacceptable practice by Roman Catholic Church.

His successor was Shimun XI Eshuyow (1638–1656).
