Vetting Status: high
Translation:
Proper name.[1] This man, sixth [in descent] from Judah, took a daughter of Aaron as wife.[2] So it is important to note that the kingly tribe was there[by] joined to the priestly.[3]
Greek Original:
Ναασών: ὄνομα κύριον. οὗτος ἕκτος ἀπὸ τοῦ Ἰούδα ὢν θυγατέρα τοῦ Ἀαρὼν γυναῖκα ἠγάγετο. χρὴ οὖν ἐπισημήνασθαι, ὅτι ἐνταῦθα συνήφθη ἡ βασιλικὴ φυλὴ τῇ ἱερατικῇ.

This entry is lacking in mss AFV and a marginal addition in ms M.
[1] Hebrew חשון Naḥshon. Sometimes known as Nachshon.
[2] Incorrect: tt was Aaron who married Nachshon's sister, Elisheba (Exodus 6:23). But see note 3.
[3] Aaron was the founder of the line of priests, while David (descendant of Nachshon) was the founder of the line of kings of Israel. Probably the lexicographer had in mind the genealogies of Jesus in Matthew 1 and Luke 3; and wanted to show that Jesus' lineage ran along both lines, David's and Aaron's. In the biblical account, Jesus is not a direct descendant of Aaron but only of David. In the Suda's he becomes a direct descendant of both.
