Fausset's Bible Dictionary - Jochebed
("Jehovah her glory".) Aunt and wife of Amram (Exodus 2:1; Exodus 6:20; Numbers 26:59). But Jochebed could not be strictly daughter of Levi, for three centuries must have intervened between Levi's death and Moses' birth. Amram and Jochebed were descendants of Levi, seven or eight generations removed. In Moses' time the Kohathites, from Kohath Levi's son, were divided into four branches, Amram, Izhar, Hebron, and Uzziel, amounting to 8,600 males, of whom the Amramites were 2,000. Amram Kohath's son is therefore not Amram Moses' father. Omission of links in Scriptural genealogies is frequent.
