(1-15) THE LINE OF AARON THROUGH ELEAZAR TO JEHOZADAK.

(1-3) Aaron's descent from Levi.

(1) The sons of Levi; Gershon . . .--So Genesis 46:11; Exodus 6:16, and uniformly in the Pentateuch. In 1Chronicles 6:16 we have the spelling Gershom, which perhaps indicates a difference of source.

(2) The sons of Kohath.--The names are the same as in Exodus 6:18. K?hath, or K?hath, was the chief house of Levi. The name is put second in the series, perhaps for euphonic reasons. (Comp. "Sheni, Ham, and Japhet" with Genesis 9:24; Genesis 10:21.) . . .

Verse 1. - This verse gives the three branches of Levi,and is in agreement with the enumeration of them in Genesis 46:11 and Exodus 6:16, viz. Gershon, Kohath, and Merari. We have not the third parallel passage in the place of mention of the other tribes (Numbers 1:47-54), but it is compensated for somewhat later (Numbers 3:14-20).
