Do chazal provide any information on מִישָׁאֵל and אֶלְצָפָן the levite cousins of Aron and Moshe who removed Nadav and Avihu from the mishkan (Vayikra 10:4)? I'm looking for any sources that discuss any other parts of their lives.

In Bamidbar 3:4, Elitzafan becomes Nassi over Kehos (which is why Korach went against Moshe).

    I think the OP was asking for quotes from the gemarah or medrash ("chazal") as opposed to pesukim – not-allowed to change my name Mar 22 '13 at 0:43

    @vulcandeathgrip I disagree. I think the OP didn't realize there were anymore relevant pesukim, but he would gladly take them among other teachings about their lives. – Double AA Mar 22 '13 at 2:47

    It appears, upon first glance, that this is effectively all that's written about Eliẓaphan (with no further mention of Misha'el) in all of Midrash Rabbah, Midrash Tanhuma, Yalqut Shim'oni, Sha"S and The Holy Zohar. – Lee Mar 28 '16 at 13:32
  • @Lee That sounds like useful information to put into an answer. – Isaac Moses Apr 20 '17 at 17:51
