Izhar in Wikipedia
According to the Torah, Izhar (Hebrew: יִצְהָר, Modern Yits'har
Tiberian Yiṣhār ; "(one who) sparkles"/oil) was the father
of Korah, Nepheg, and Zichri, and was a son of Kohath and
grandson of Levi, consequently being the brother of Amram
and uncle of Aaron, Miriam, and Moses. No further details
of his life are given by the Bible, and according to biblical
scholars the genealogy for Levi's descendants is actually an
aetiological myth, reflecting popular perception of the
connections between different Levite factions; textual
scholars attribute the genealogy to the Book of Generations, a
document originating from a similar religiopolitical group and
date to the priestly source).
Despite twice listing Izhar as being among the sons of
Kohath, the Book of Chronicles subsequently goes on
state, only a few verses later, that it was the (previously
unmentioned) son of Kohath named Amminadab that became the
father of Korah. Later in the Book of Chronicles, Amminadab
is given as the name of the leader of the Uzzielites, a
clan which the biblical genealogy proclaims as being descended
from Uzziel, Izhar's brother.
