1880 Excerpt: ...to Merari as distinct from the drafts traced to
his two well-known sons. Instead of the one son mentioned in the
previous verse, four sons or descendants are here assigned to
Jaaziah, who were heads of drafts. These with Jaaziah himself make
five. There is no reason for supposing this passage to be an
interpolation, except its difficulty and unexpectedness to us. But
this is rather an argument in favour of its genuineness. Vers. 28,
29. Eleazar founded no draft. But Kish and Jerahmeel were heads of
two drafts. Ver. 30. Mushi gave rise to three drafts. Thus there
were ten drafts of Merarites and fourteen of Kohathites, making in
all twentyfour drafts corresponding to the twenty-four divisions of
priests. Ver. 31. These were arranged by lot to match the courses
of their brethren, the sons of Aaron, in the presence of the same
presidents. The last clause should run thus, 'the fathers, the
chief over against his lesser brother.' This seems to intimate that
in the preceding enumeration the heads of drafts are branches of
the pedigree at different removes from the parent stem. 1. How many
courses of priests, and how many drafts of the other Levites? 2.
Who were Zadok and Ahimelech? 3. Where else do we meet with the
phrase ' Princes of holiness'? 4. What remarkable family sprang
from Joiarib? 5. What conspicuous person from A bifah? 6. What
prophet seems to refer to the high priest and the heads of the
twenty-four courses? 7. Who are 'the rest of the sons of Levi'? 8.
Why do the Gershonites not appear among ' the rest'? 9. How many
drafts of' the rest' descended from Moses? 10. What argument may be
offered in favour ef the genuineness of the passage about yaaziah?
