Gershom [Gûr’shŏm]—a stranger there.

  1. The first-born son of Moses and Zipporah. He was born in Midian (Exod. 2:22; 18:3; 1 Chron. 23:15, 16).
  2. The eldest son of Levi, and referred to as Gershon (Gen. 46:11; Josh. 21:6).
  3. One of the family of Phinehas, and one of the “heads of houses” who returned with Ezra from Babylon (Ezra 8:2).
  4. Father of Jonathan, the Levite who became priest to the Danites who settled at Laish (Judg. 18:30). The Danite tribe was guilty of the evil of setting up a graven image.
