Hakkoz

Hakkoz (Hak´oz; Heb., “the thorn”)

1 The seventh priest chosen by lot in David’s time, reported in postexilic records (1Chr 24:10). 2 The father of descendants who could not prove their Israelite ancestry (Ezra 2:61; Neh 7:63). 3 The grandfather of Meremoth who made repairs near the Fish Gate in rebuilding Jerusalem (Neh 3:4; Neh 3:21). Opinions divide on whether these all refer to the same or different families.
