    Kore in Easton's Bible Dictionary partridge. (1.) A Levite and temple-warder of the Korahites, the son of Asaph. He was father of Shallum and Meshelemiah, temple-porters (1 Chr. 9:19; 26:1). (2.) A Levitical porter at the east gate of the temple (2 Chr. 31:14). (3.) In 1 Chr. 26:19 the word should be "Korahites," as in the Revised Version.

    Kore in Fausset's Bible Dictionary 1. 1 Chronicles 26:1; 1 Chronicles 9:19. 2. 2 Chronicles 31:14.

    Kore in Naves Topical Bible -1. A Korahite 1Ch 9:19; 26:1 -2. A Levite, keeper of the east gate 2Ch 31:14

    Kore in Smiths Bible Dictionary (partridge). 1. A Korahite, ancestor of Shallum and Meshelemiah, chief porters in the reign of David. 1Ch 9:19; 26:1 (B.C. 1014.) 2. Son of Imnah, a Levite in the reign of Hezekiah. He had charge of the offerings. 2Ch 31:14 (B.C. 726.) 3. In the Authorized Version of 1Ch 26:19 "the sons of Kore" (following the Vulgate Core) should properly be "the sons of the Korhite."

    Kore in the Bible Encyclopedia - ISBE ko-'re (qore, "one who proclaims"): (1) A Levite of David's time, descended from Kohath and Korah. See KORAH, 4. Shallum, Chief doorkeeper in the latest Bible times, is described as "the son of Kore, the son of Ebiasaph, the son of Korah" (1 Ch 9:19). This expression omits the generations between Shallum and Kore, and those between Kore and Ebidsaph, perhaps 15 generations or more in each case. The context supplies two of the omitted names, of the time of David, Meshelemiah and his son Zechariah (1 Ch 9:21,22). The record for the time of David mentions these two, with some particulars, calling Meshelemiah the son of Kore (1 Ch 26:1,2,9,14). It describes them as "Korahites" "of the sons of Asaph." It is usual to regard this last clause as a variant for "the son of Ebiasaph," thus making the description identical with that in 1 Ch 9:19. With this understanding, the text claims that "the Korahites," Kore and Meshelemiah and Zechariah, come midway in a line of sanctuary ministrants, extending continuously from Moses to Nehemiah. (2) "The son of Imnah the Levite, the porter at the east gate," who "was over the freewill-offerings," in the time of Hezekiah (2 Ch 31:14). Very likely in the same line with (1) above. (3) In 1 Ch 26:1 the King James Version for KORAHITES (which see). Willis J. Beecher
