Fausets

("assembly".) Levi's second son; came down to Egypt with Levi and Jacob (Ge 46:11). Died 133 years old (Ex 6:16,18). From him sprang Moses and Aaron (1Ch 6:2); but (See AMRAM their father is separated from the Amram, Kohath's son, by many omitted links in the genealogy, for at the Exodus Kohath's posterity numbered 2,750 between 30 and 50 years old (Nu 4:35-36), and the males young and old 8,600, divided into the Amramites, Izharites, Hebronites, and Uzzielites (Nu 3:25-27, etc.).

Their charge on the march was on the S. side of the tabernacle, to bear (Nu 4:15) the ark, the table, the candlestick, the altars, and vessels of the sanctuary, and the hangings, but not to take off the coverings put on by the sons of Aaron or touch them, on pain of death; Uzzah's fatal error (2Sa 6:6-7).
