And there went a man of the house of Levi, and took to wife a daughter of Levi.

New Defender's Study Bible Notes

2:1 man of the house of Levi. The man, unnamed here, was Amram, and his wife was Jochebed (Exodus 6:20). Both were of the tribe of Levi, so this is the first indication that the twelve tribes, by this time, were inclining toward marriage not only within the nation of Israel but within their own tribal families.
