AARONITES

ar'-on-its (le-'aharon, literally, "belonging to Aaron"): A word used in the King James Version, but not in the revised versions, to translate the proper name Aaron in two instances where it. denotes a family and not merely a person (1 Ch 12:27; 27:17). It is equivalent to the phrases "sons of Aaron," "house of Aaron," frequently used in the Old Testament. According to the books of Josh and Chronicles the "sons of Aaron," were distinguished from the other Levites from the time of Joshua (e.g. Josh 21:4,10,13; 1 Ch 6:54).
