ATS Bible Dictionary
Aaronites

Descendants of Aaron the high priest, so called 1 Chronicles 12:27; 27:17. Thirteen cities were assigned to them, in Judah and Benjamin, Joshua 21:13-19; 1 Chronicles 6:57-60.

Easton's Bible Dictionary
The descendants of Aaron, and therefore priests. Jehoiada, the father of Benaiah, led 3,700 Aaronites as "fighting men" to the support of David at Hebron (1 Chronicles 12:27). Eleazar (Numbers 3:32), and at a later period Zadok (1 Chronicles 27:17), was their chief.
International Standard Bible Encyclopedia
AARONITES

ar'-on-its (le-'aharon, literally, "belonging to Aaron"): A word used in the King James Version, but not in the revised versions, to translate the proper name Aaron in two instances where it. denotes a family and not merely a person (1 Chronicles 12:27; 1 Chronicles 27:17). It is equivalent to the phrases "sons of Aaron," "house of Aaron," frequently used in the Old Testament. According to the books of Jos and Chronicles the "sons of Aaron," were distinguished from the other Levites from the time of Joshua (e.g. Joshua 21:4, 10, 13 1 Chronicles 6:54).
