Ith´amar (palm-coast), fourth son of Aaron. He was consecrated to the priesthood along with his brothers (; ). Nothing is individually recorded of him, except that the property of the tabernacle was placed under his charge (), and that he superintended all matters connected with its removal by the Levitical sections of Gershon and Merari (). The sacred utensils and their removal were entrusted to his elder brother Eleazar. Ithamar, with his descendants, occupied the position of common priests till the high-priesthood passed into his family in the person of Eli, under circumstances of which we are ignorant. Abiathar, whom Solomon deposed, was the last high-priest of that line; and the pontificate then reverted to the elder line of Eleazar in the person of Zadok ().
