Elisheba, also spelled Elisheva (/əˈlɪʃɪbə/; אֱלִישֶׁבַע’Ělîšeḇa‘) in the Hebrew Bible, was the wife of Aaron the ancestor of the Jewish high priests. [1]

She is a daughter of Amminadab, and a sister of Nahshon, from the Tribe of Judah (Exodus 6:23). [2]

In Hebrew names, Eli means "my God" and Sheba means "oath", so Eli-sheba is oath of my God or "God is her oath".[3]
