Elisheva (Elisheba or Elizabeth) (אֱלִישֶׁבַע in Hebrew) was the wife of Aaron, the ancestor of Cohen in the Bible. According to ancient Jewish tradition, was buried in the tomb of the matriarchs in Tiberias. In Hebrew, Eli means "my God." Sheva can mean "oath" or "subsistence". (Sheva also means "seven" (to perfection) in Hebrew). The name Elisheva can therefore both mean "God is my oath" (I swear by God) and "God is my livelihood." According to some interpretations, Elisheva was the same as Puah, a fair midwives mentioned in Exodus. Those who support this interpretation believe that his position as ancestress of the priestly caste was a reward for having saved the Hebrew children. The name Elisabeth has resulted in numerous diminutives and variations, some of which are in turn become real names: Elizabeth gave Babeth, Babette, Elisabet, Elisabete, Elisabethe, Elisabetta, Elisabette, Elizabet, Elizabeta, Elizabete, Elizabeth, Elizabette, Lily, Lily, Lisabete, Lisabeth, Lisbeth, Liz, and Lizbeth Lizabete In the Old Testament, this name was notably worn by Elisheba (Elizabeth), wife of Aaron and sister of Moses and Miriam.
