Phinehas (fïn'e-has), brazen mouth. 1. A son of Eleazar and grandson of Aaron, Exodus 6:25; 1 Chronicles 6:4; 1 Chronicles 6:50, was high priest of the Jews for nearly 20 years. Bus zeal and promptitude in punishing the Bin of Zimri was rewarded by the promise to his family of perpetual succession in the Jewish priesthood. Numbers 25:6-15. This promise was fulfilled; for except the interval from Eli to Zadok, the priesthood continued in the family of Phinehas until the destruction of the temple and the Babylonian captivity. 2. A son of Eli, and noted for his wickedness. 1 Samuel 1:3; 1 Samuel 2:34; 1 Samuel 4:4; 1 Samuel 4:11; 1 Samuel 4:17; 1 Samuel 4:19; 1 Samuel 14:3. 3. A Levite in the time of Ezra. Ezra 8:33.
