LIBNI. The eldest son of Gershon, that is to say, the eponym of a principal family of Gershonite Levites, Exodus 6:17 , Numbers 3:18 , 1 Chronicles 6:17 ; 1 Chronicles 6:20 . In 1 Chronicles 6:29 [Heb. 14], perhaps owing to some dislocation of the text, the name appears as that of the eponym of a family of Merarites. The patronymic Libnites occurs in Numbers 3:21 ; Numbers 26:58 . Cf. Ladan.
