the thorn, the head of one of the courses of the priests (1Ch 24:10).

a thorn; summer; an end

International Standard Bible Encyclopaedia


hak'-oz (haqqots, or ha-qots, "the nimble"):

(1) A priest and chief of the 7th course of Aaron's sons selected by David (1Ch 24:10). According to Ezr 2:61; Ne 3:4,21; 7:63, his descendants returned with Zerubbabel from the captivity. But the King James Version considers the name in Ezra and Nehemiah as having the article prefixed, hence renders "Koz."

(2) One of Judah's descendants (1Ch 4:8).

Smith's Bible Dictionary


(thorn) a priest, the chief of the seventh course in the service of the sanctuary, as appointed by David (1 Chronicles 24:10). In Ezra 2:61 and Nehemiah 3:4; 3:21 the name occurs again as Koz in the Authorized Version.


The Blue Letter Bible ministry and the BLB Institute hold to the historical, conservative Christian faith, which includes a firm belief in the inerrancy of Scripture. Since the text and audio content provided by BLB represent a range of evangelical traditions, all of the ideas and principles conveyed in the resource materials are not necessarily affirmed, in total, by this ministry.
