The fourth son of Aaron, consecrated to the priesthood, Ex 6:23; Nu 3:2-3. His posterity took charge of the tabernacle in the wilderness, Ex 38:21; Nu 4:28. Some of this line, namely, Eli, Ahitub, Ahiah, Ahimelech, and Abiathar, held the office of high priest, but under Solomon it reverted to the family of Eleazar, 1Ki 2:7. See ABIATHAR.

Easton

palm isle, the fourth and youngest son of Aaron (1Ch 6:3). He was consecrated to the priesthood along with his brothers (Ex 6:23); and after the death of Nadab and Abihu, he and Eleazar alone discharged the functions of that office (Le 10:6,12; Nu 3:4). He and his family occupied the position of common priest till the high priesthood passed into his family in the person of Eli (1Ki 2:27), the reasons for which are not recorded. (See Zadok.)

Fausets

Aaron's youngest son (Ex 6:23). With Eleazar the elder he succeeded to the priestly offices vacated by the death of Nadab and Abihu, which he and Eleazar were forbidden to mourn (Ex 28:1,40,43; Le 10:1-2,6-7; Nu 3:3-4; 1Ch 24:2). Ithamar superintended the Gershonites who had charge of the curtains and hangings, and Merari who had charge of the pillars, Cords, and boards, on the march (Ex 38:21; Nu 4:21-33). Eleazar's family and chief men were more numerous than those of Ithamar. The high priesthood in Eli's person (probably on account of the high qualities for which he was made judge) passed to the line of Ithamar, but reverted to Eleazar's line in Zadok, because of Abiathar's share in Adonijah's rebellion; thus the prophecy against Eli was fulfilled (1Sa 2:31-35; 3:12-14; 1Ki 2:26-27,35). (See ABIATHAR; ELI.)

Hastings

The fourth and youngest son of Aaron and Elisheba (Ex 6:23 etc.); consecrated priest (Ex 28:1 ff.); forbidden to mourn for Nadab and Abihu (Le 10:6), or to leave the Tent of Meeting (Le 10:7); afterwards entrusted by Moses with priestly duties (Le 10:12 ff.) and rebuked by him for neglect (Le 10:16 ff.); set over the Gershonites and the Merarites in connexion with the service of the Tent of Meeting (Nu 4:21-33; 7:7 f.; cf. also Ex 38:21); ancestor of Eli (cf. 1Ki 2:27 with 1Ch 24:3; Josephus Ant. VIII. i. 3). The family in David's time was only half the size of Eleazar's (1Ch 24:4). It was represented among the returned exiles (Ezr 8:2).

Ith'amar

Youngest son of Aaron: he was anointed with Nadab, Abihu, and Eleazar to minister in the priest's office. Under the superintendence of Ithamar were placed the Gershonites and Merarites who carried portions of the tabernacle. The high-priesthood came into the family of Ithamar in the person of Eli, and it reverted to the descendants of Eleazar in Zadok on the deposition of Abiathar by Solomon. Ex 6:23; 28:1; 38:21; Le 10:6,12,16; Nu 3:2-4; 4:28,33; 7:8; 26:60; 1Ch 6:3; 24:1-6. Daniel, a descendant of Ithamar, returned from exile. Ezr 8:2.

Watsons

ITHAMAR, Aaron's fourth son, Ex 6:23. There is no probability that he ever exercised the high priesthood. He and his sons continued in the rank of simple priests, till this dignity came into his family in the person of Eli.
