("of the people of the prince"; else, "my people is willing".)

1. Song of Solomon 6:12; "My soul made me like the chariots of Amminadib," one noted for swift driving; compare Song of Solomon 1:9.

As Naasson, Amminadab's son, was prince at the first numbering of Israel in the second year from the Exodus, Amminadab probably died in Egypt before the Exodus, at the time of Israel's heaviest oppression. His daughter Elisheba married Aaron, and bore Nadab (named from Amminadab), Abihu, Eleazar, and Ithamar; the earliest alliance of the kingly line of Judah and the priestly line of Aaron.
