1. A descendant of Judah, concerning whose genealogy we have only the confused statement that he " begat Anub and Zobebah, and the families of Aharhel, the son of Harum" (1Ch 4:8). B.C. prob. cir. 1612.

2. The head of the seventh division of priests as arranged by David (1Ch 24:10). B.C. 1014. He is probably the same whose descendants are mentioned as returning with Zerubbabel from Babylon, but as being excluded by Nehemiah from the priesthood on account of their defective pedigree (Ezr 2:61; Ne 7:63). To this family appears to have belonged Urijah, whose son Meremoth is named as having repaired two portions of the wall of Jerusalem (Ne 3:4,21).
