  1. One of the descendants of Aaron by Eleazar (1 Chr. 6:7,52). He was probably the last of the high priests of Eleazar's line prior to the transfer of that office to Eli, of the line of Ithamar.
  2. A Levite, son of Hebron, of the lineage of Moses (1 Chr. 23:19; 24:23).
  3. A "chief priest" who took an active part in the reformation under Jehoshaphat (2 Chr. 19:11); probably the same as mentioned in 1 Chr. 6:9.
  4. 1 Chr. 6:11; Ezra 7:3.
  5. One of the high priests in the time of Hezekiah (2 Chr. 31:15).
  6. Zeph. 1:1.
  7. Neh. 11:4.
  8. Neh. 10:3.
  9. Ezra 10:42.
