  From  Easton's  1897  Bible  Dictionary  [easton]: 
 
  Aaronites 
  the  descendants  of  Aaron,  and  therefore  priests.  Jehoiada,  the 
  father  of  Benaiah,  led  3,700  Aaronites  as  "fighting  men"  to  the 
  support  of  David  at  Hebron  (1  Chr.  12:27).  Eleazar  (Num.  3:32), 
  and  at  a  later  period  Zadok  (1  Chr.  27:17),  was  their  chief.
