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
