People's Dictionary of the Bible - Phinehas
Phinehas (fïn'e-has), brazen mouth. 1. A son of Eleazar and grandson of Aaron, Exodus 6:25; 1 Chronicles 6:4; 1 Chronicles 6:50, was high priest of the Jews for nearly 20 years. Bus zeal and promptitude in punishing the Bin of Zimri was rewarded by the promise to his family of perpetual succession in the Jewish priesthood. Numbers 25:6-15. This promise was fulfilled; for except the interval from Eli to Zadok, the priesthood continued in the family of Phinehas until the destruction of the temple and the Babylonian captivity. 2. A son of Eli, and noted for his wickedness. 1 Samuel 1:3; 1 Samuel 2:34; 1 Samuel 4:4; 1 Samuel 4:11; 1 Samuel 4:17; 1 Samuel 4:19; 1 Samuel 14:3. 3. A Levite in the time of Ezra. Ezra 8:33.
Hastings' Dictionary of the Bible - Hophni And Phinehas
HOPHNI AND PHINEHAS . The two sons of Eli; they were priests in the sanctuary at Shiloh, where, in spite of the presence of their father, they carried on their evil practices. In consequence of their deeds a curse is twice pronounced upon the house of Eli, first by a ‘man of God’ ( 1 Samuel 2:27 ) who is not named, and again by the mouth of Samuel (ch. 3). The curse was accomplished when Hophni and Phinehas were slain at the battle of Aphek, and the ark of God was lost an incident which was the cause of the death of Eli (ch. 4). The malpractices of these two consisted in their claiming and appropriating more than their due of the sacrifices ( 1 Samuel 2:13-17 ), and in their immoral actions in the Tabernacle ( 1 Samuel 2:22 ; cf. Amos 2:7-8 ).
W. O. E. Oesterley.
Easton's Bible Dictionary - Phinehas
Mouth of brass, or from old Egypt, the negro.
Son of Eleazar, the high priest (Exodus 6:25 ). While yet a youth he distinguished himself at Shittim by his zeal against the immorality into which the Moabites had tempted the people (Numbers 25:1-9 ), and thus "stayed the plague" that had broken out among the people, and by which twenty-four thousand of them perished. For his faithfulness on that occasion he received the divine approbation (10-13). He afterwards commanded the army that went out against the Midianites (31:6-8). When representatives of the people were sent to expostulate with the two and a half tribes who, just after crossing Jordan, built an altar and departed without giving any explanation, Phinehas was their leader, and addressed them in the words recorded in Joshua 22:16-20 . Their explanation follows. This great altar was intended to be all ages only a witness that they still formed a part of Israel. Phinehas was afterwards the chief adviser in the war with the Benjamites. He is commemorated in Psalm 106:30,31 . (See ED .)
One of the sons of Eli, the high priest ( 1 Samuel 1:3 ; 2:12 ). He and his brother Hophni were guilty of great crimes, for which destruction came on the house of Eli (31). He died in battle with the Philistines (1 Samuel 4:4,11 ); and his wife, on hearing of his death, gave birth to a son, whom she called "Ichabod," and then she died (19-22).
The Hawker's Poor Man's Concordance And Dictionary - Phinehas
Son of Eleazar the priest. He was the third high priest, from the first order of the priesthood. Aaron, Eleazar and Phinehas. The name seems to have been derived Panah, to shine, See an honorable testimony given by the Lord himself to this man. (Numbers 25:6-13) There was another Phinehas in Scripture, but of a very different character, namely, Phineas the son of Eli.

Bridgeway Bible Dictionary - Phinehas
Of the biblical characters named Phinehas, the most important was the zealous priest who was Aaron’s grandson (Exodus 6:25). Phinehas’ father, Eleazar, had succeeded Aaron as high priest (Numbers 20:25-26), and Phinehas proved himself to be a loyal supporter. When Israelite men brought God’s judgment upon themselves through their immorality with foreign women, Phinehas dealt with the rebels. His swift action saved Israel from destruction (Numbers 25:1-8; see also 31:1-7). God rewarded Phinehas’ zeal by promising that his descendants would become the chief priestly family in Israel (Numbers 25:10-13; cf. Judges 20:27-28). Though zealous for God’s standards, Phinehas proved to be fair and reasonable when he had to listen to complaints and settle disputes (Joshua 22:13-16; Joshua 22:30-34).
A later priest named Phinehas had no concern at all for God’s standards. He and his brother, who were sons of the priest Eli, corrupted the priesthood so badly that God removed them in a dramatic judgment. The two were killed the same day (1 Samuel 1:3; 1 Samuel 2:12-17; 1 Samuel 2:34; 1 Samuel 4:4; 1 Samuel 4:11).
Holman Bible Dictionary - Phinehas
(fihn' ih huhss) Personal name meaning “dark-skinned” or “mouth of brass.” 1. Grandson of Aaron and high priest who, on several occasions, aided Moses and Joshua. See 1 Samuel 2:22 ) and led the people to follow. He and Hophni died in a battle with the Philistines while attempting to keep the ark from being captured (1 Samuel 4:11 ). When his pregnant wife heard of his death, she immediately delivered, naming the child Ichabod (“the glory has departed”).
Fausset's Bible Dictionary - Hophni And Phinehas
"Sons of Belial," who, though knowing externally and professionally, "knew not the Lord" experimentally and practically (1 Samuel 2:12, compare Jeremiah 22:16; Titus 1:16). Greediness, violent rapacity, wherewith they made themselves fat with the chiefest of the offerings of God's people, (and this in the sanctuary itself, so that "men abhorred the offering of the Lord,") and even lust indulged with the women assembling at the door of the tabernacle, were their crying sins. These in accordance with the prophecies of a man of God, and of Samuel, brought on both a violent death in one day. In vain Israel relied on the ark of God when Hophni and Phinehas were its escort. If Eli had "restrained them" firmly when "they made themselves vile," and had Israel thoroughly amended their ways, the ark, so far from falling into the foe's hands, would have been the pledge of victory over the foe (Jeremiah 7:4; Isaiah 48:2). (See ELI.) (1 Samuel 2; 3; 4).

Fausset's Bible Dictionary - Phinehas
An Egyptian name in the time of Rameses II.
1. Eleazar's son; Aaron's grandson (Exodus 6:25). His mother was of Putiel's daughters. By his zeal in avenging the Lord's cause on the Simeonitc prince Zimri, and Cosbi his Midianite paramour, Phinehas turned away Jehovah's wrath, making an atonement for Israel, and was given Jehovah's covenant of peace, an everlasting priesthood (Numbers 25; Psalms 106:30-31). Phinehas, with the holy instruments and trumpets to blow, accompanied the expedition which avenged Jehovah and Israel on Midian (Numbers 31:6, etc.). Phinehas, as ambassador with ten princes, was delegated by Israel to remonstrate with the two and a half tribes as to the altar the latter built at Jordan; these satisfied the delegates and Israel as to their intentions. Thus was Phinehas a mediator of Israel's brotherly unity, as before he had vindicated Israel's purity (Joshua 22:13-34).
Lastly Phinehas stood before the ark inquiring of Jehovah for Israel, "shall I go yet again ... against Benjamin my brother?" (Judges 20:23; Judges 20:28.) The same zeal for the purity yet brotherhood of Israel characterized him now in old age as in his youth. His zeal, i.e. the faith that prompted it, "was counted unto him for righteousness unto all generations for evermore" (compare Genesis 15:6; Romans 4:3). Phinehas had an allotment in Mount Ephraim; here on a hill bearing his name his father Eleazar was buried (Joshua 24:33). The closing verses, concerning Joshua's death, etc., are ascribed to Phinehas (Baba barbra, in Fabricius, 893.) Eli of Ithamar's line interrupted the succession of the line of Phinehas; Zadok resumed it under Solomon. The tomb of Phinehas is shown at Awertah, four miles S.E. of Nablus, in the center of the village, within an area overshadowed by an old vine.
2. Second son of Eli, killed with Hophni, in battle with the Philistines (1 Samuel 1:3); according to the prophecy: 1 Samuel 2:34; 1 Samuel 4:4; 1 Samuel 4:11; 1 Samuel 4:17; 1 Samuel 4:19; 1 Samuel 14:3. (See ELI; HOPHNI.)
3. A Levite (Ezra 8:33).
Morrish Bible Dictionary - Phinehas
1. Son of Eleazar and grandson of Aaron. He showed his zeal for God in slaying Zimri and Cozbi, for which he was commended by God, who promised His 'covenant of peace' to him and his seed, even 'the covenant of an everlasting priesthood.' He succeeded Eleazar as high priest. Exodus 6:25 ; Numbers 25:7-13 ; Numbers 31:6 ; Joshua 22:13-32 ; Judges 20:28 ; 1 Chronicles 6:4,50 ; 1 Chronicles 9:20 ; Ezra 7:5 ; Ezra 8:2 ; Psalm 106:30 .
2. Son of Eli: he degraded the priesthood by his wickedness, and was slain with his brother Hophni by the Philistines when the ark was taken. He was father of Ahitub and Ichabod; his wife, overcome with sorrow, dying when the latter was born. 1 Samuel 1:3 ; 1 Samuel 2:34 ; 1 Samuel 4:4-19 ; 1 Samuel 14:3 .
3. Father of Eleazar who returned from exile. Ezra 8:33 .
Watson's Biblical & Theological Dictionary - Phinehas
son of Eleazar, and grandson of Aaron, third high priest of the Jews, A.M. 2571 to about A.M. 2590, B.C. 1414. He is particularly commended in Scripture for zeal in vindicating the glory of God, when the Midianites had sent their daughters into the camp of Israel, to tempt the Hebrews to fornication and idolatry, Numbers 25:7 . On this account the Lord promised the priesthood to Phinehas by perpetual covenant; evidently including this tacit condition, that his children should continue faithful and obedient: for we know the priesthood passed out of the family of Eleazar and Phinehas to that of Ithamar, and that it returned not to the posterity of Eleazar until after about a hundred and fifty years.
Hastings' Dictionary of the Bible - Phinehas
PHINEHAS . 1 . The son of Eleazar, who was the third son of Aaron. Both his name and that of his mother Putiel are perhaps of Egyptian origin. The only certain occurrence of the name in a pre-exilic writing is in Joshua 24:33 ; a hill ( Gibeath Pinhas ) in Ephraim was named after him, where his father and (LXX [1] ) he himself was buried. In P [2] and the Chronicler he rises into great prominence. He succeeded Eleazar as chief priest ( Exodus 6:25 , 1 Chronicles 6:4 ; 1 Chronicles 6:50 , Ezra 7:5 , 1E Esther 8:2 , 2E Esther 1:2 ), and was the superintendent of the Korahite Levites ( 1 Chronicles 9:20 ). The succession of the priesthood in his line was assured to him when he showed his zeal at Shittim in Moab, when Israel ‘joined themselves unto Baal-peor.’ An Israelite brought into the camp a woman from the Midianites who had beguiled the people into foreign worship. Phinehas slew the man and the woman ( Numbers 25:1-18 ). This is referred to in Psalms 106:30 f., Sir 45:23-25 , 1Ma 2:25 ; 1Ma 2:54 . As priest he accompanied the expedition to punish the Midianites ( Numbers 10:8 f.). He was the spokesman of the western tribes concerning the altar which the eastern tribes had erected ( Joshua 22:13 ; Joshua 22:30-32 , See Ed.). The war between Benjamin and the other tribes occurred in his high priesthood ( Judges 20:28 ). After the Exile a clan of priests, ‘the sons of Phinehas,’ claimed descent from him ( Ezra 8:2 [3]). 2 . The younger son of Eli ( 1 Samuel 1:3 [3]). See Hophni and Phinehas. 3. Ezra 8:33 Ezra 8:33 father of a priest named Eleazar; = 1Es 8:62 Peter hinees .
A. H. M‘Neile.
American Tract Society Bible Dictionary - Hophni And Phinehas
The guilty and wretched sons of Eli the high priest. They grossly and continuously abused the influence of their position and sacred office; and their cupidity, violence, and impious profligacy, overbearing the feeble remonstrances of their father, brought disgrace and ruin on their family. The ark, which they had carried to the camp in spire of divine prohibitions, was taken, and they were slain in battle, 1 Samuel 2:1-4:22 . See ELI . The ark of God protects only those who love and obey him. Men in all ages are prone to rely on a form of religion, while the heart and life are not right with God; and all who thus sin, like the sons of Eli, must perish likewise.

Son of Ahitub, grandson of Phinehas and great-grandson of Eli, succeeded his father as high priest in the reign of Saul
Eli - The next time he is mentioned it is only as the father of Hophni and Phinehas, the whole passage being occupied with an account of their evil doings ( 1 Samuel 2:12 ff
Gibeah - In mount Ephraim, called Gibeah of Phinehas, where Eleazar the son of Aaron was buried, Joshua 24:33
Zadok - In him the line of Phinehas resumed the dignity, and held it till the fall of Jerusalem
Zadok - ...
Since Zadok belonged to the line of chief priests that went back through Phinehas and Eleazar to Aaron (Ezra 7:2-5), his appointment to the high priesthood was in keeping with the plan and promise of God (Numbers 25:10-13)
Eleazar - Son of Phinehas, a Levite
Shiloh - Thus, Shiloh became home for Samuel as he lived under the care of Eli, the high priest, and his two wicked sons, Hophni and Phinehas. Results included losing the ark; the deaths of Hophni, Phinehas, and Eli; and the apparent conquering of Shiloh (1 Samuel 4:1 )
Hill, Hill-Country - ‘Gibeah of Saul,’ ‘of Phinehas,’ ‘of the foreskins,’ ‘of Moreh,’ ‘of Hachilah,’ ‘of Ammah,’ ‘of Gareb,’ and ‘of Elohim
Elea'Zar - (Ezra 10:25 ) ...
Son of Phinehas, a Levite
Eleazar - His death is mentioned, Joshua 24:33, but not the time of it: perhaps it was near that of Joshua, He was succeeded as high priest by his son Phinehas
e'li - He died at the advanced age of 98 years, (1 Samuel 4:18 ) overcome by the disastrous intelligence that the ark of God had been taken in battle by the Philistines, who had also slain his sons Hophni and Phinehas
Eleazar - (Concerning Eleazar’s famous son see Phinehas

Gershom - A descendant of Phinehas, one of the ‘heads of houses’ who went up with Ezra from Babylon in the reign of Artaxerxes ( Ezra 8:2 )
High Priest - ...
Phinehas, son of Eleazar, is best known for his zealous opposition to intermarriage with the Moabites and the concomitant idolatry (Numbers 25:6-13 ). For his zeal Phinehas was granted a covenant of perpetual priesthood (Numbers 25:13 ) and was reckoned as righteous (Psalm 106:30 ). Phinehas accompanied the sanctuary vessels in holy war (Numbers 31:6 ). Phinehas served as the major figure in the resolution of the conflict over the “commemorative” altar the tribes east of the Jordan built (Joshua 22:13 ,Joshua 22:13,22:31-32 ). ...
Aaron, Eleazar, and Phinehas appear in Biblical history as distinct personalities. 1 Chronicles 6:1-15 offers a (partial?) list of seven high priests between Phinehas and Zadok, a contemporary of David and Solomon
Hophni - His brother Phinehas, or Pinehai more properly, and which signifies a countenance or face, from Panah, to behold, was another such a character as himself
Micah - A man of Mount Ephraim, whose history reveals the sad state of private life in Israel, as well as the mixture of idolatry with the name of Jehovah, early in the times of the Judges, Phinehas being still high priest
Jannes - Some will have it that they fled away with their father; others, that they were drowned in the Red Sea with the Egyptians; others, that they were killed by Phinehas in the war against the Midianites
Zeal (2) - As ‘ardour in embracing, pursuing, or defending’ an object, it is ascribed to Phinehas (Numbers 25:11; Numbers 25:13), Elijah (1 Maccabees 2:58), the Jewish people (Acts 21:20, Romans 10:2)
Eli - The two sons of Eli, Hophni and Phinehas, were 'sons of Belial:' they assisted their father, but interfered with the due offering of the sacrifices, and sinned greatly before the people
Eli - The two sons of Eli, Hophni and Phinehas, were 'sons of Belial:' they assisted their father, but interfered with the due offering of the sacrifices, and sinned greatly before the people
Bethel - Here the ark of the covenant was kept for a long time under the care of Phinehas, the grandson of Aaron (20:26-28)
Pergamos - As Phinehas was rewarded for his zeal against idol compliances and fornication (to which Balaam seduced Israel), with "an everlasting priesthood," so the heavenly priesthood is the reward of those zealous against New Testament Balaamites
Zeal - Phinehas is commended for having expressed much zeal against those wicked persons that violated the law of the Lord, Numbers 25:11 ; Numbers 25:13 ; and in Psalms 69:9 , the psalmist says, "The zeal of thine house hath eaten me up;" my earnest desire to have all things duly ordered about thy worship, and my just displeasure and indignation at all abuses in it, have wasted my natural moisture and vital spirits
Abiathar - —The son of Ahimelech, the son of Ahitub, the son of Phinehas, the son of Eli
Midianite - A thousand warriors from each tribe, under the leadership of Phinehas, went forth against them
Eli - The transfer was foretold to Eli by the unnamed man of God first, and by the child Samuel next (1 Samuel 2:3): a punishment from God, because though Eli reproved his wicked sons Hophni and Phinehas in word he did not in act, put forth his authority as a judge to punish, coerce, and depose them, "because his sons made themselves vile, and he restrained them not
Balaam - When God sent a plague that killed thousands, Balaam must have thought his plan was working, but swift action from the Israelite priest Phinehas saved Israel and brought death to Balaam (Numbers 25:1-9; Numbers 31:16; Joshua 13:22)
Eli - Eli could not have treated Hophni or Phinehas better than he treated Samuel, his immediate successor. Let me consider well how, conceivably, it could come about that Hophni and Phinehas could be born and brought up at Shiloh and not know the Lord? Well, for one thing, their father was never at home. Hophni and Phinehas were the only children in all Israel who saw the temple every day and paid no attention to it. How the ark of God was taken, and the two sons of Eli, Hophni and Phinehas, were slain. ...
'The Psalm of Ichabod, the son of Phinehas, the son of Eli, which he sang after that the Lord had repented Him of the evil, and had restored the priesthood to the house of Eli: I will confess my iniquity and the iniquity of my fathers. ' Thus sang Ichabod, the son of Phinehas, after that the Lord had repented Him of the evil
Midian - So, by Jehovah's command, 1,000 warriors of every tribe, 12,000 in all, of Israel "vexed and smote" their five kings (Zur included, father of Cozbi the Midianite woman slain with Zimri by Phinehas in the act of sin) and Balaam the giver of the wicked counsel which brought Jehovah's wrath on Israel for the sin (Numbers 31:2-17)
Zadok - Abiathar bad charge of the ark in Jerusalem; so formerly Eleazar and Ithamar, Hophni and Phinehas, were joint chief priests
Names - persons often gave their children names of significance: thus the wife of Phinehas, when she heard that the ark of God was taken, and that her husband and her father-in-law were dead, called her child Ichabod, 'where is the glory?' for the glory was departed from Israel, the ark being taken
Samaritans - In the first of these answers, written in the name of the assembly of Israel, in Egypt, they declare that they celebrate the passover every year, on the fourteenth day of the first month, on Mount Gerizim, and that he who then did the office of high priest was called Eleazar, a descendant of Phinehas, son of Aaron. At the time when they wrote to Scaliger, they reckoned one hundred and twenty-two high priests; affirmed that the Jews had no high priests of the race of Phinehas; and that the Jews belied them in calling them Cutheans; for that they are descended from the tribe of Joseph by Ephraim
Hannah - There were more sons and daughters of Belial being born and brought up in the house of Israel in these days, than Hophni and Phinehas. If he had said that to Hophni and Phinehas twenty years before, and had, at the same time, put away his own, Eli would have had another grandson than Ichabod to bear and to transmit his name. I do not wonder that Hophni and Phinehas became prodigals. What else could they become with such a father? When the blind lead the blind, what can you look for? That temple post, and that doited old priest sitting idle in the sun, and Hannah drunk with sorrow, and the way that Eli looks at her, and the things he says to her-Rock of Ages, let me hide myself in Thee! Only to Thy cross I cling-as I see Eli, and myself in Eli, and my children in Hophni and in Phinehas and in Ichabod. Who would not have been sad who had eyes to see what went on in Elkanah's house at Shiloh? No man but a blind and a hopeless fool would have been other than sad over houses like the house of Elkanah and Peninnah, and Eli and Hophni and Phinehas
Ezra - He was the son, or perhaps grandson, of Seraiah (2 Kings 25:18-21 ), and a lineal descendant of Phinehas, the son of Aaron (Ezra 7:1-5 )
Ahijah - Son of Ahitub, Ichabod's brother, son of Phinehas, Eli's son, the Lord's priest in Shiloh, wearing an ephod (1 Samuel 14:3; 1 Samuel 14:18)
Jannes And Jambres - They were sons of Balaam, and accompanied him on his journey to Balak; they perished in the Red Sea; they were among the ‘mixed multitude’; they were killed in the matter of the golden calf; they flew up into the air to escape the sword of Phinehas, but were brought down by the power of the Ineffable Name and slain
Ashdod - Perhaps the most infamous contact between Ashdod and Israel is reported in 1 Samuel 4-6 when the Philistines defeated the army of Israel in battle, killed the two sons of Eli, Hophni and Phinehas, and captured the ark of the covenant
Shiloh (2) - The sin of Hophni and Phinehas caused the loss of the ark and God's forsaking of His tabernacle at Shiloh (called in spiritual sense "the house of God," though not of stone: Judges 18:31; 2 Samuel 7:6; 1 Kings 3:2), so that this became a warning beacon of God's wrath against those who sin in the face of high spiritual privileges (Jeremiah 7:12; Psalms 78:60-61)
Petrus, Bishop of Sebaste - 168), entreating him to strike with the zeal of a Phinehas both the heretical books with the same spiritual sword, which he knew so well how to wield
Ed - It was not in sight of Phinehas when addressing the leaders of the two and a half tribes on mount Gilead
Samaritans - They have a copy of the Pentateuch, professedly made by Abishua the son of Phinehas, 1400 years before Christ
Levi - son," where God's honour was at stake (Matthew 10:37; Matthew 19:29; Luke 14:26), and Phinehas' zeal against the idolaters and fornicators with the Moabite women (Numbers 25:11), gained God's approval and the choice of Levi as the priestly tribe (Deuteronomy 33:9-11)
Fathers - ...
The fathers praised are Enoch, Noah, Abraham, Isaac, Israel, Moses, Aaron, Phinehas, Joshua, Caleb, the Judges, Samuel, Nathan, David, Solomon, Elijah, Elisha, Hezekiah, Isaiah, Josiah, Jeremiah, Ezekiel, Job, the Twelve, Zerubbabel, Joshua the priest, Nehemiah
Come Up, Ascend - Even when ‛âlâh is used by itself, it can mean “to go to war”; the Lord told Phinehas, “Go up; for tomorrow I will deliver them into thine hand” ( Joshua - The last five verses, giving an account of the death of Joshua, were added by one of his successors; probably by Eleazar, Phinehas, or Samuel
Baal (1) - A plague from Jehovah destroyed 24,000 Israelites in consequence, and was only stopped by the zeal of Phinehas
Zeal - Phinehas received a reward as ‘zealous for his God’ (Numbers 25:13)
Dives - ), however, has thought that the word may be a corruption of Φινεές (Finaeus in pseudo-Cyprian, de Pascha Computus, circa (about) 17), and ‘that since in Numbers 25:7 Phinehas is said to be the son of Eleazar, an attempt has been made to suggest that the poor man … was the rich man’s own father
Micah - Phinehas, Aaron's grandson, is mentioned (Micah 5:8-98)
Jealousy (2) - Jealousy, no doubt, is apt to be a turbid virtue; the OT examples of it—Phinehas, Elijah, and Jehn—all illustrate this; and even in Christian history jealousy for Jesus as sole Lord and Saviour has often been confounded with zeal for a definition of one’s own making, or for the predominance of one’s own ecclesiastical or political faction
Righteousness - The avenging deed of Phinehas was ‘counted to him for righteousness’ ( Psalms 106:31 )
Joshua, Book of - The tribes on the west feared that the altar had been built in separation from the worship of Jehovah, and sent princes with Phinehas the priest to protest against it, but on hearing the explanation given, they were satisfied that the tribes on the east were faithful in heart
Genealogy - Thus, the genealogy of Ruth 4:18-22 makes but four intervening links between Nahshon at the Exodus (Numbers 1:7) and David, namely, Salmon, Boaz, Obed, Jesse; whereas the genealogy of Levi has double that number in the same period, seven between Phinehas and Zadok, and more in Gershon's line (1 Chronicles 6)
Covenant - Amongst other covenants of minor importance are that with Phinehas establishing an everlasting priesthood in his line ( Numbers 25:12 f
Honor - Phinehas’ wife named their son Ichabod, “saying, The glory is departed from Israel: because the ark of God was taken, and because of her father-inlaw and her husband” (they, the high priests, had died; Redeem - 25:13, Phinehas is said to have “made an atonement for the children of Israel” by spearing a couple during orgiastic worship of Baal
High Priest - Phinehas, son of Eleazar, is the last of Eleazar's line before Eli (Judges 20:28). Abishua, was the last high priest of Phinehas' line before Zadok
Samuel - Hophni and Phinehas never saw God. Such blessedness is there in a good mother; in an early plantation in the house of God; and in a pure heart; for, then, with Hophni and Phinehas for Israel's high priests, and with Samuel for her prophet from Dan to Beersheba,-'I should soon have subdued their enemies, and turned My hand against their adversaries. Hophni and Phinehas's lives were the seals of it to them
Ezra, Book of - He descended from Aaron through Phinehas and later Zadok (Ezra 7:1-5 ; 1 Chronicles 6:4-14 )
Atonement - ), of the half-shekel of ransom-money ( Exodus 30:15-16 ), of the intercession of Moses ( Exodus 32:30 ), of the zeal of Phinehas ( Numbers 25:13 ), etc. ), with sacrificial atonements, with signal vindications of the Divine righteousness (Phinehas)
Balaam - " But then follows (Numbers 25) Israel's whoredom, not only with Moabite women but also with Midianite women, of whom Cozbi, daughter of Zur (slain by Phinehas
Samuel, First Book of - The wife of Phinehas also, in giving birth to a son, called his name Ichabod, [1] 'no glory,' and died
Chronicles, Books of - As has been noted, tradition names Ezra the “ready scribe,” a priest descended from Zadok and Phinehas (Ezra 7:1-6 ), as author of Chronicles, Ezra, and Nehemiah
Numbers, Book of - Perpetual priesthood promised to the line of Phinehas for his zeal in killing the Israelite and the Midianitess
Numbers, Book of - The zeal of Phinehas, who in a signal case executed judgement, is commended of God
Aaron - By her he had four sons: Nadab, Abihu, Eleazar (father of Phinehas), and Ithamar
Judges, the Book of - The unanimity of the tribes implies an early date; also the mention of Aaron's grandson Phinehas (compare Judges 20:28 with Joshua 22:13; Joshua 24:33)
Saul - Hannah, and Samuel, and Eli, and Hophni and Phinehas, and Ichabod were all household words, as we say, in every household in Israel
Priests And Levites - That Eleazar’s son Phinehas succeeded him is perhaps implied in Numbers 25:11 , and certainly is so in Judges 20:28 in a document closely allied in its present form to P -->
