These were the Levites1 who were counted by their clans: through Gershon, the Gershonite clan; through Kohath, the Kohathite clan; through Merari, the Merarite clan.
These also were Levite clans: the Libnite clan, the Hebronite clan, the Mahlite clan, the Mushite clan, the Korahite clan. (Kohath was the forefather of Amram;259
the name of Amram's wife was Jochebed,3 a descendant of Levi, who was born to the Levitesa in Egypt. To Amram she bore Aaron, Moses4 and their sister5 Miriam.660
Aaron was the father of Nadab and Abihu, Eleazar and Ithamar.761
But Nadab and Abihu8 died when they made an offering before the LORD with unauthorized fire.)962
All the male Levites a month old or more numbered 23,000.10 They were not counted11 along with the other Israelites because they received no inheritance12 among them.13
