K.J.V. Bible Text

My Thoughts:

In Verse 13 of Exodus 6 the record of the genealogy of the brothers Aaron and Moses is begun.  There is a lot about the different families of Israelites, all descended from the 12 sons of Jacob that originally settled in Egypt.

Moses and Aaron were the sons of Amran by his father’s sister.  Amran’s father was Kohath, whose father was Jacob’s son Levi. 

The scriptures list the Israelites according to generation, rather than in the direct line I figured out for Moses and Aaron.  The scripture also continues the narrative by naming the sons of Aaron and of Moses; but I am content to know the direct lineage of these two brothers who together approached Pharaoh about bringing the Israelites out of Egypt.
