ASSIR:

1. A son of Korah, a Levite (Ex. vi. 24, and in the list of I Chron. vi. 7). 2. Son of Ebiasaph and great-grandson of Assir, son of Korah (I Chron. vi. 8, 22). 3. Son of Jeconiah, found in the genealogical lists of the kings of Judah (I Chron. iii. 17). "Assir" is interpreted by the R. V. as "captive"; but the rendering "Jeconiah the captive" is most improbable.
