In the present Greek text of the Testament of Levi'), the Patriarch describes the birth of his four children, Gershon, Qehath, Merari and Jochebed and offers an explanation of the names given to them. The description of his second son is presented in TL 11:4, where we read2): And Kaath was born in the thirty-fifth year3) towards sunrise. Levi had already told to his family that he followed the command of his grandfather Isaac to take for himself a wife while he was still young (9:10a, ouv aeauTC;> -yuvaTxa, Em v€os ¿)v4) by marrying Milka, when he was twenty-eight years old (1 1 : 1 , ore oùv ?a(3ov Through this mar- *) Cf. for a broader discussion 'De namen van de kinderen van Levi', over de duiding van de namen Gersjôn, Qehath, Merari en Jochebed in het Testament van Levi 11, in Amsterdamse cahiers voor exegese en bijbelse theologie Nr. 8, Kampen 1987. 1) For the text, cf.
