Why does the Torah see fit to tell us that Amram married Yocheved, and Aharon Elisheva bas Aminadav (in Pasuk 23)?


Ramban #1 (in Pasuk 23): It mentions the name of the mother of the prophets (Moshe and Aharon) in their honor, 1 and the mother of the kings, to teach us that she was a Meyucheses, from the family of kings, the sister of the celebrated Nachshon.


Targum Yonasan: Refer to 6:16:2:4.


And to teach us that she was the daughter of Levi the Tzadik, hinting that a miracle was performed with her (that she bore children at the age of a hundred and thirty [Ramban]).
