About this time, a man and woman from the tribe of Levi got married.
The woman became pregnant and gave birth to a son. She saw that he was a special baby and kept him hidden for three months.
This is the family line of Aaron and Moses as it was recorded when the LORD spoke to Moses on Mount Sinai:
The Libnites, the Hebronites, the Mahlites, the Mushites, and the Korahites were all subclans of the Levites. Now Kohath was the ancestor of Amram,
and Amram's wife was named Jochebed. She also was a descendant of Levi, born among the Levites in the land of Egypt. Amram and Jochebed became the parents of Aaron, Moses, and their sister, Miriam.
1 Chronicles 23:13
The sons of Amram were Aaron and Moses. Aaron and his descendants were set apart to dedicate the most holy things, to offer sacrifices in the LORD's presence, to serve the LORD, and to pronounce blessings in his name forever.
