 26:58
26:58 These are the sub-families of Levi: The Libnite family, the Chevronite family, the Machlite family, the Mushite family, and the Korchite family.

Kehoth had a son Amram.
Eleh mishpechot Levi mishpachat haLivni mishpachat haChevroni mishpachat haMachli mishpachat haMushi mishpachat haKorchi uKehat holid et-Amram.




Commentary:

Libnite
  From Gershon, Numbers 3:18.

Chevronite
  From Chevron (Hebron), son of Kehoth; Numbers 3:19.

Machlite
  From Merari; Numbers 3:20.

Mushite
  From Merari; Numbers 3:20.

Korchite
  From Korach, son of Yitzhar, son of Kehoth; Exodus 6:21 (Ibn Ezra). Missing are the families of Shimi from Gershon (Numbers 3:18), and Uzziel from Kehoth (Numbers 3:19), and the other sons of Yitzhar (Exodus 6:21) (Rashi). It is possible that these families became extinct in the desert (Yerushalmi, Yoma 1:1, 2a).
