1. A son of Korah (Ex 6:24). 2. An Ephraimite, husband of Peninnah and Hannah; by the former he had several children, but Hannah was for many years childless. Her rival mocked her for this as they went up year by year with Elkanah to sacrifice in Shiloh. Elkanah loved Hannah more than Peninnah, and sought, in vain, to comfort her in her distress. At length Hannah conceived, and bore a son, Samuel. Afterwards three sons and two daughters were born to them (see Hannah, and Samuel). 3. The son of Assir (1Ch 6:23). 4. The father of Zophai (Zuph), a descendant of 3 (1Ch 6:26,35). 5. A Levite who dwelt in a village of the Netophathites (1Ch 9:16). 6. One of the mighty men who came to David to Ziklag (1Ch 12:6). 7. A door-keeper for the ark (1Ch 15:23). 8. A high official, 'next to the king,' at the court of Ahaz (2Ch 28:6-7).
