Ziza (descendant of Simeon)
Excerpt from the Lexham Bible Dictionary, the most advanced Bible dictionary.
One of the leaders (נָשִׂיא‎, nasi') of the families descended from Simeon (1 Chr 4:37). Ziza is notable in the list of Simeonite leaders because he is identified by five generations of ancestors, ending with Shemaiah. Ten of the thirteen leaders listed in 1 Chr 4:34–37 appear with no family information at all.
