So the plague against the Israelites was halted,…

(7) And when Phinehas, the son of Eleazar, the son of Aaron the priest . . . --In accordance with this punctuation, the designation the priest (which generally denotes the high priest) refers to Aaron, not to Phinehas. Eleazar was the high priest at this time (Numbers 20:26); and consequently--although as a general rule any designation which follows the words "the son of such an one" refers to the former, not to the latter noun--it appears most probable that the designation the priest has reference here to Aaron, not to Phinehas, who, although a priest, was not the high priest at this time. He was invested, however, with civil as well as ecclesiastical authority. (See 1Chronicles 9:20, where he is described as a ruler--Hebrew, nagid.)

Verse 7. - Phinehas, the son of Eleazar. See on Exodus 6:25. He seems to have been the only son of Eleazar, and his natural successor in the office of high priest.
