    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" ( 1 Chronicles 4:8). B.C. prob. cir. 1612.

    2. The head of the seventh division of priests as arranged by David ( 1 Chronicles 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 ( Ezra 2:61;  Nehemiah 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 ( Nehemiah 3:4;  Nehemiah 3:21).
