(1) A priest and chief of the 7th course of Aaron's sons selected by David (1 Chronicles 24:10). According to Ezra 2:61; Nehemiah 3:4,21; 7:63, his descendants returned with Zerubbabel from the captivity. But the King James Version considers the name in Ezra and Nehemiah as having the article prefixed, hence renders "Koz."
