Easton's Bible Dictionary
Elkanah

God-created.

1. The second son of Korah (Exodus 6:24), or, according to 1 Chronicles 6:22, 23, more correctly his grandson.

2. Another Levite of the line of Heman the singer, although he does not seem to have performed any of the usual Levitical offices. He was father of Samuel the prophet (1 Chronicles 6:27, 34). He was "an Ephrathite" (1 Samuel 1:1, 4, 8), but lived at Ramah, a man of wealth and high position. He had two wives, Hannah, who was the mother of Samuel, and Peninnah.
