John Gill's Exposition of the Whole Bible

And Eleazar Aaron's son took him one of the daughters of Putiel to wife,.... This was Aaron's eldest son. The person, whose daughter he married, Dr. LightfootF13Works, vol. 1. p. 704, 705. conjectures was an Egyptian convert, perhaps of the posterity of Potipherah, among whom Joseph had sowed the seeds of true religion, and supposes that the Egyptians used the name of Puti or Poti, either in memorial of their uncle Put, Genesis 10:6 or in reverence of some deity of that name; but the Targum of Jonathan makes Putiel to be the same with Jethro; and so does Jarchi; but Aben Ezra seems to be most right, who takes him to be of the children of Israel, though the reason of his name is not known, and the daughter of such an one it is most likely a son of Aaron would marry:

and she bore him Phinehas; of whom see Numbers 25:11,

these are the heads of the Levites, according to their families; from whence the Levites sprung, and their several families. It may be observed, that Moses says nothing of his own offspring, only of his brother Aaron's, partly out of modesty and humility, and partly because the priesthood was successive in the family of Aaron, but not the civil government in the family of Moses; and that he proceeds no further to give the genealogy of the remaining tribes, his chief view being to show the descent of Aaron and himself, that it might be with certainty known in after times who they were that were instruments of Israel's deliverance out of Egypt, which would be matter of inquiry, and very desirable to be known.

John Trapp Complete Commentary

Exodus 6:25 And Eleazar Aaron’s son took him [one] of the daughters of Putiel to wife; and she bare him Phinehas: these [are] the heads of the fathers of the Levites according to their families.

Ver. 25. These are the heads of the fathers of the Levites.] And particularly of Moses, concerning whose original, heathen writers, but especially Taeitus - whom therefore Tertullian calleth, mendsdorum loquacissimum, a loud and lewd liar - telleth many untruths. This "the Scripture foresaw," as Galatians 3:8.

Thomas Coke Commentary on the Holy Bible

Exodus 6:25. Eleazar—took him one of the daughters of Putiel Eleazar succeeded his father in the priesthood, and assisted Joshua in the division of the land of Canaan. It is thought that this Putiel, whose daughter he married, was an Egyptian; as the name Putiel, seems derived from Phut, the brother of Mizraim, Genesis 10:6 with the addition of El, the name of God.

Ellicott's Commentary for English Readers

(25) According to their families.—The genealogy proper here ends. But the author appends to it an emphatic statement that the Moses and Aaron mentioned in it (Exodus 6:20; Exodus 6:23) are the very Moses and Aaron appointed by God to lead the Israelites out of Egypt—the very Moses and Aaron who delivered God’s message to Pharaoh (Exodus 6:26-27).
