Aaron (Harun) was a Horite Hebrew priest who led the clan of Jacob from Egypt to the land of Edom, Abraham's territory. It is said that Aaron died on Mount Hor which is situated on the edge of the land of Edom.
The term "Hor" refers to Horite, a caste of Hebrew ruler-priests who were devotees of God the Father and his Son, Horus. In this belief, Aaron was following the Messianic Faith of his forefather Abraham. The Horite rulers of Edom are listed in Genesis 36. Edom was one of the ancient seats of wisdom.
Josephus (Antiquities 4:4:6) identifies Aaron's Mount (Jebel Haroun in Arabic; Har Harun in Hebrew) with a twin-peaked mountain in the Edomite Mountains on the east side of the Jordan-Arabah valley, near Petra. There is a shrine at the summit, the Tomb of Aaron, said to mark Aaron's grave.
Moses, Aaron, and Korah were members of the Horite Hebrew priest caste.
King David and King Herod had Edomite blood. For three months the Ark of the Covenant rested in David’s hometown of Bethlehem in the house of Obed-Edom.
The ancient capital of Edom was Boz-Ra, meaning the "sheepfold of Ra."
