What are the…
Aaronites

This is the name of the descendants of Aaron (brother of Moses), and therefore all Hebrew priests.

Jehoiada, the father of Benaiah, led 3,700 Aaronites as “fighting men” to the support of David at Hebron (1 Chronicles 12:27). Eleazar (Numbers 3:32), and at a later period Zadok (1 Chronicles 27:17), was their chief.
