  Ithamar 
  palm  isle,  the  fourth  and  youngest  son  of  Aaron  (1  Chr.  6:3).  He 
  was  consecrated  to  the  priesthood  along  with  his  brothers  (Ex. 
  6:23);  and  after  the  death  of  Nadab  and  Abihu,  he  and  Eleazar 
  alone  discharged  the  functions  of  that  office  (Lev.  10:6,  12; 
  Num.  3:4).  He  and  his  family  occupied  the  position  of  common 
  priest  till  the  high  priesthood  passed  into  his  family  in  the 
  person  of  Eli  (1  Kings  2:27),  the  reasons  for  which  are  not 
  recorded.  (See  {ZADOK}.)
