    ZIMMAH . A family of Gershonite Levites (  1 Chronicles 6:20 (5), 42 (27),   2 Chronicles 29:12 ).

    Holman Bible Dictionary [6]

     1 Chronicles 6:42 2 Chronicles 29:12

    Cyclopedia of Biblical, Theological and Ecclesiastical Literature [7]

    (Heb. Zimmah', זַמָּה , Purpose; Sept. Ζεμμά v.r. Ζαμμάμ and Ζεμάθ ; Vulg. Zemma or Zamma ) , the name of two or three Levites.

    1. A Gershonite, "son" of Jahath and father of Joah ( 1 Chronicles 6:20); probably the same with the "son" of Shimei and father of Jahath ( 1 Chronicles 6:42). B.C. post 1874.

    2. Father or ancestor of Joah, which latter was a Gershonite in the reign of Hezekiah ( 2 Chronicles 29:12). B.C. ante 726. At a much earlier period we find the same collocation of names, Zimmah and Joah as father and son ( 1 Chronicles 6:20). This is but an evidence of the frequent recurrence of the same names in a family (comp. "Mahath the son of Amasai" in  2 Chronicles 29:12 with the same in  1 Chronicles 6:35; "Joel the son of Azariah" in  2 Chronicles 29:12 and  1 Chronicles 6:36; and "Kish the son of Abdi" in  2 Chronicles 29:12 with "Kishi the son of Abdi" in  1 Chronicles 6:44).

    International Standard Bible Encyclopedia [8]
