Amram in Smiths Bible Dictionary (an exalted people). 1. A Levite of the family of the Kohathites, and father of Moses. Ex 6:18,20 (B.C. 1571.) 2. A son of Dishon and descendant of Seir, 1Ch 1:41 properly "Hamram" = HEMDAN in Ge 36:26 3. One of the sons of Bani in the time of Ezra, who had married a foreign wife. Ezr 10:34 (B.C. 459).

Amram in the Bible Encyclopedia - ISBE am'-ram (`amram, "people exalted"): (1) Father of Aaron, Moses and Miriam (Ex 6:20; Nu 26:59; 1 Ch 6:3; 23:13); and a son of Kohath, the son of Levi (Ex 6:18; Nu 3:19, etc.). It is not certain that he was literally the son of Kohath, but rather his descendant, since there were ten generations from Joseph to Joshua (1 Ch 7:20-27), while only four are actually mentioned from Levi to Moses for the corresponding period. Moreover the Kohathites at the time of the Exodus numbered 8,600 (Nu 3:28), which would therefore have been an impossibility if only two generations had lived. It seems best to regard Amram as a descendant of Kohath, and his wife Jochebed as a "daughter of Levi" in a general sense. (2) One of the Bani, who in the days of Ezra had taken a foreign wife (Ezr 10:34). (3) In 1 Ch 1:41 (the King James Version) for the properly read HAMRAN of the Revised Version (British and American) (chamran), a Horite, who in Gen 36:26 is called HEMDAN (which see).

Amram in Wikipedia In the Book of Exodus, Amram (Hebrew: עַמְרָם, Modern Amram Tiberian ʻAmrām ; Friend of the most high/The people are exalted), is the father of Aaron, Moses, and Miriam and the husband of Jochebed[1]In addition to being married to Jochebed, Amram is also described in the Bible as having been related to Jochebed prior to the marriage, although the exact relationship is uncertain; some Greek and Latin manuscripts of the Septuagint state that Jochebed was Amram's father's cousin, and others state that Amram was Jochebed's cousin[2], but the Masoretic text states that he was Jochebed's nephew[3]. Textual scholars attribute the biblical genealogy to the Book of Generations, a document originating from a similar religiopolitical group and date to the priestly source[4]. According to biblical scholars, the Torah's genealogy for Levi's descendants, is actually an aetiological myth reflecting the fact that there were four different groups among the levites the Gershonites, Kohathites, Merarites, and Aaronids[5]; Aaron the eponymous ancestor of the Aaronids couldn't be portrayed as a brother to Gershon, Kohath, and Merari, as the narrative about the birth of Moses (brother of Aaron), which textual scholars attribute to the earlier Elohist source, mentions only that both his parents were Levites (without identifying their names)[6]. Biblical scholars suspect that the Elohist account offers both matrilinial and patrilinial descent from Levites in order to magnify the religious credentials of Moses[5]...
