Lib'ni. (white).

1. The eldest son, of Gershon, the son of Levi, Exodus 6:17; Numbers 3:18; 1 Chronicles 6:17; 1 Chronicles 6:20, and ancestor of the family, of the Libnites. (B.C. after 1700).

2. The son of Mahli or Mahali, son of Merari, 1 Chronicles 6:29, as the text at present stands. It is probable, however, that he is the same as the preceding, and that something has been omitted. Compare 1 Chronicles 6:29 with 1 Chronicles 6:20; 1 Chronicles 6:42.
