He was the grandfather of Aaron and Moses, and one of the three sons of Levi. He was the founder of the Levitical family the "Kohathites".The Kohathites took care, and transported the Ark, the vessels, the lampstand, and all accessories connected with the Sanctuary during the trek through the desert (Numbers 3:31). They numbered 8,300 males (one month or older) at that time. In King David's time they were among the singers who "were entrusted by David with the choir services in the Lord's house from the time when the Ark had obtained a permanent resting place." (1 Chronicles 6:16-18).
