1. The third son of Aaron, and high priest after him, Exodus 6:23; Numbers 20:25-28 . The high priesthood continued in his family through seven generations; till the time of Eli, when we find it transferred to the line of Ithamar. In the reigns of Saul and David, it was restored to the line of Eleazar, and so continued till after the captivity.
