Meraioth in Fausset's Bible Dictionary

1. Sprung from Eleazar, Aaron's son; ancestor of Zadok and Ezra (1 Chronicles 6:6). Lightfoot (Temple Serv. 4:1) thought that he was next before Eli, and that at his death the high priesthood passed from Eleazar's to Ithamar's line. Meraioth and Ahitub are perhaps transposed in Azariah's genealogy (1 Chronicles 9:11; Nehemiah 11:11). 2. Nehemiah 12:15; MEREMOTH in Nehemiah 12:3.
