2. A descendant of Benjamin, of the family of Gibeon, distinct from Saul's father (1 Chronicles 8:30).

3. A Merarite Levite, son of Abdi, in Hezekiah's days; sanctified himself to cleanse the temple (2 Chronicles 29:12). The Levitical house under its chief, rather than an individual, is meant here by Kish.
