And Aaron took him Elisheba
The same name we pronounce Elizabeth; and of this name was the wife of Zacharias, the father of John the Baptist, ( Luke 1:5 ) , this woman Aaron took was the daughter of Amminadab, the sister of Naashon;
a prince of the tribe of Judah, ( Numbers 7:12 ) , her he took to wife; or married; for though intermarriages with the several tribes were not allowed, nor used in after times, that they might be kept distinct, and the inheritances also, yet the tribe of Levi often took wives of other tribes, because they had no inheritance, and were to have none in the land of Canaan, so that confusion in tribes and inheritance was not made hereby; and it is observable, that these marriages were frequently with the tribe of Judah, as signifying the union of the kingly and priestly offices in Christ, who sprung from the tribe of Judah: and she bare him Nadab, and Abihu, Eleazar, and Ithamar;
the two first of these died by fire from heaven in their father's lifetime, for offering strange fire to the Lord, ( Leviticus 10:1 Leviticus 10:2 ) . Eleazar succeeded his father in the priesthood, ( Numbers 20:26 ) and of the sons of Ithamar executing the priest's office, see ( 1 Chronicles 24:2 ) .
