1. american professional baseball player who hit more home runs than babe ruth (born in 1934) [syn: aaron, henry louis aaron , hank aaron]
2. (old testament) elder brother of moses and first high priest of the israelites; created the golden calf [syn: aaron]
the eldest son of amram and jochebed, a daughter of levi (ex. 6:20). some explain the name as meaning mountaineer, others mountain of strength, illuminator. he was born in egypt three years before his brother moses, and a number of years after his sister miriam (2:1,4; 7:7). he married elisheba, the daughter of amminadab of the house of judah (6:23; 1 chr. 2:10), by whom he had four sons, nadab and abihu, eleazar and ithamar. when the time for the deliverance of isarael out of egypt drew nigh, he was sent by god (ex. 4:14,27-30) to meet his long-absent brother, that he might co-operate with him in all that they were required to do in bringing about the exodus. he was to be the "mouth" or "prophet" of moses, i.e., was to speak for him, because he was a man of a ready utterance (7:1,2,9,10,19). he was faithful to his trust, and stood by moses in all his interviews with pharaoh. when the ransomed tribes fought their first battle with amalek in rephidim, moses stood on a hill overlooking the scene of the conflict with the rod of god in his outstretched hand. on this occasion he was attended by aaron and hur, his sister's husband, who held up his wearied hands till joshua and the chosen warriors of israel gained the victory (17:8-13). afterwards, when encamped before sinai, and when moses at the command of god ascended the mount to receive the tables of the law, aaron and his two sons, nadab and abihu, along with seventy of the elders of israel, were permitted to accompany him part of the way, and to behold afar off the manifestation of the glory of israel's god (ex. 19:24; 24:9-11). while moses remained on the mountain with god, aaron returned unto the people; and yielding through fear, or ignorance, or instability of character, to their clamour, made unto them a golden calf, and set it up as an object of worship (ex. 32:4; ps. 106:19). on the return of moses to the camp, aaron was sternly rebuked by him for the part he had acted in this matter; but he interceded for him before god, who forgave his sin (deut. 9:20). on the mount, moses received instructions regarding the system of worship which was to be set up among the people; and in accordance therewith aaron and his sons were consecrated to the priest's office (lev. 8; 9). aaron, as high priest, held henceforth the prominent place appertaining to that office. when israel had reached hazeroth, in "the wilderness of paran," aaron joined with his sister miriam in murmuring against moses, "because of the ethiopian woman whom he had married," probably after the death of zipporah. but the lord vindicated his servant moses, and punished miriam with leprosy (num. 12). aaron acknowledged his own and his sister's guilt, and at the intercession of moses they were forgiven. twenty years after this, when the children of israel were encamped in the wilderness of paran, korah, dathan, and abiram conspired against aaron and his sons; but a fearful judgment from god fell upon them, and they were destroyed, and the next day thousands of the people also perished by a fierce pestilence, the ravages of which were only stayed by the interposition of aaron (num. 16). that there might be further evidence of the divine appointment of aaron to the priestly office, the chiefs of the tribes were each required to bring to moses a rod bearing on it the name of his tribe. and these, along with the rod of aaron for the tribe of levi, were laid up overnight in the tabernacle, and in the morning it was found that while the other rods remained unchanged, that of aaron "for the house of levi" budded, blossomed, and yielded almonds (num. 17:
(a teacher, or lofty), the son of Amram and Jochebed, and the older brother of Moses and Miriam. (Numbers 26:59; 33:39) (B.C. 1573.) He was a Levite, and is first mentioned in (Exodus 4:14) He was appointed by Jehovah to be the interpreter, (Exodus 4:16) of his brother Moses, who was "slow of speech;" and accordingly he was not only the organ of communication with the Israelites and with Pharaoh, (Exodus 4:30; 7:2) but also the actual instrument of working most of the miracles of the Exodus. (Exodus 7:19) etc. On the way to Mount Sinai, during the battle with Amalek, Aaron with Hur stayed up the weary hands of Moses when they were lifted up for the victory of Israel. (Exodus 17:9) He is mentioned as dependent upon his brother and deriving all his authority from him. Left, on Moses' departure into Sinai, to guide the people, Aaron is tried for a moment on his own responsibility, and he fails from a weak inability to withstand the demand of the people for visible "gods to go before them," by making an image of Jehovah, in the well-known form of Egyptian idolatry (Apis or Mnevis). He repented of his sin, and Moses gained forgiveness for him. (9:20) Aaron was not consecrated by Moses to the new office of the high priesthood. (Exodus 29:9) From this time the history of Aaron is almost entirely that of the priesthood, and its chief feature is the great rebellion of Korah and the Levites. Leaning, as he seems to have done, wholly on Moses, it is not strange that he should have shared his sin at Meribah and its punishment. See Moses. (Numbers 20:10-12) Aaron's death seems to have followed very speedily. It took place on Mount Hor, after the transference of his robes and office to Eleazar. (Numbers 20:28) This mount is still called the "Mountain of Aaron." See Hor. The wife of Aaron was Elisheba, (Exodus 6:23) and the two sons who survived him, Eleazar and Ithamar. The high priesthood descended to the former, and to his descendants until the time of Eli, who, although of the house of Ithamar, received the high priesthood and transmitted it to his children; with them it continued till the accession of Solomon, who took it from Abiathar and restored it to Zadok (of the house of Eleazar). See Abiathar.

In the Hebrew Bible and the Qur'an, Aaron ( or ; Ahărōn, Hārūn, Greek (Septuagint): Ααρών ), who is often called "'Aaron the Priest"' and once Aaron the Levite (Exodus 4:14), was the older brother of Moses, (Exodus 6:16-20, 7:7; Qur'an 28:34) and a prophet of God. He represented the priestly functions of his tribe, becoming the first High Priest of the Israelites. While Moses was receiving his education at the Egyptian royal court, and during his exile among the Midianites, Aaron and his sister Miriam remained with their kinsmen in the eastern border-land of Egypt (Goshen). There, Aaron gained a name for eloquent and persuasive speech, so that when the time came for the demand upon the Pharaoh to release Israel from captivity, Aaron became his brother’s nabi, or spokesman, to his own people (Exodus 7:1) and, after their unwillingness to hear, to the Pharaoh himself (Exodus 7:9). Various dates for his life have been proposed, ranging from approximately 1600 to 1200 BC.
