Smith's Bible Dictionary
Amram

(an exalted people).

  1. A Levite of the family of the Kohathites, and father of Moses. (Exodus 6:18,20) (B.C. 1571.)
  2. A son of Dishon and descendant of Seir, (1 Chronicles 1:41) properly "Hamram" = HEMDAN in (Genesis 36:26)
  3. One of the sons of Bani in the time of Ezra, who had married a foreign wife. (Ezra 10:34) (B.C. 459).
Easton's Bible Dictionary
Kindred of the High; i.e., "friend of Jehovah."

(1.) The son of Kohath, the son of Levi. He married Jochebed, "his father's sister," and was the father of Aaron, Miriam, and Moses (Exodus 6:18, 20; Numbers 3:19). He died in Egypt at the age of 137 years (Exodus 6:20). His descendants were called Amramites (Numbers 3:27; 1 Chronicles 26:23).

(2.) Ezra 10:34.

International Standard Bible Encyclopedia
AMRAM

am'-ram (`amram, "people exalted"):

(1) Father of Aaron, Moses and Miriam (Exodus 6:20 Numbers 26:59 1 Chronicles 6:3; 1 Chronicles 23:13); and a son of Kohath, the son of Levi (Exodus 6:18 Numbers 3:19, etc.). It is not certain that he was literally the son of Kohath, but rather his descendant, since there were ten generations from Joseph to Joshua (1 Chronicles 7:20-27), while only four are actually mentioned from Levi to Moses for the corresponding period. Moreover the Kohathites at the time of the Exodus numbered 8,600 (Numbers 3:28), which would therefore have been an impossibility if only two generations had lived. It seems best to regard Amram as a descendant of Kohath, and his wife Jochebed as a "daughter of Levi" in a general sense.

(2) One of the Bani, who in the days of Ezra had taken a foreign wife (Ezra 10:34).

(3) In 1 Chronicles 1:41 (the King James Version) for the properly read HAMRAN of the Revised Version (British and American) (chamran), a Horite, who in Genesis 36:26 is called HEMDAN (which see).
