Son of Ahimaaz. 1Ch 6:9 He appears from 1Ki 4:2 to have succeeded Zadok, his grandfather, in the high priesthood, in the reign of Solomon, Ahimaaz having died before Zadok. (B.C. About 1000.)

The son of Johanan. 1Ch 6:10 He must have been high priest in the reign of Abijah and Asa. (B.C. 939.) 7.

Son of Zephaniah, a Kohathite, and ancestor of Samuel the prophet. 1Ch 6:36 Apparently the same as Uzziah in ver. 24. 9.
