First Chronicles 23


23:1 So when David was old and full of days, he made Solomon his
 son king over Israel.
23:2 And he assembled all the princes of Israel, with the
 priests and the Levites.
23:3 Now the Levites were numbered from the age of thirty years
 and upward: and their number by their polls, man by man, was
 thirty and eight thousand.
23:4 Of which, twenty and four thousand [were] to oversee the
 work of the house of the LORD; and six thousand [were] officers
 and judges:
23:5 Moreover, four thousand [were] porters; and four thousand
 praised the LORD with the instruments which I made, [said
 David], to praise [with them].
23:6 And David divided them into courses among the sons of Levi,
 [namely], Gershon, Kohath, and Merari.
23:7 Of the Gershonites, [were], Laadan and Shimei.
23:8 The sons of Laadan: the chief [was] Jehiel, and Zetham, and
 Joel, three.
23:9 The sons of Shimei; Shelomith, and Haziel, and Haran,
 three. These [were] the chief of the fathers of Laadan.
23:10 And the sons of Shimei [were], Jahath, Zina, and Jeush and
 Beriah. These four [were] the sons of Shimei.
23:11 And Jahath was the chief, and Zizah the second: but Jeush
 and Beriah had not many sons; therefore they were in one
 reckoning, according to [their] father's house.
23:12 The sons of Kohath; Amram, Izhar, Hebron, and Uzziel,
 four.
23:13 The sons of Amram; Aaron and Moses: and Aaron was
 separated, that he should sanctify the most holy things, he and
 his sons for ever, to burn incense before the LORD, to minister
 to him, and to bless in his name for ever.
23:14 Now [concerning] Moses the man of God, his sons were named
 of the tribe of Levi.
23:15 The sons of Moses [were], Gershom, and Eliezer.
23:16 Of the sons of Gershom; Shebuel [was] the chief.
23:17 And the sons of Eliezer [were], Rehabiah the chief. And
 Eliezer had no other sons; but the sons of Rehabiah were very
 many.
23:18 Of the sons of Izhar; Shelomith the chief.
23:19 Of the sons of Hebron; Jeriah the first, Amariah the
 second, Jehaziel the third, and Jekameam the fourth.
23:20 Of the sons of Uzziel; Micah the first, and Jesiah the
 second.
23:21 The sons of Merari; Mahli, and Mushi. The sons of Mahli;
 Eleazar, and Kish.
23:22 And Eleazar died, and had no sons, but daughters: and
 their brethren the sons of Kish took them.
23:23 The sons of Mushi; Mahli, and Eder, and Jeremoth, three.
23:24 These [were] the sons of Levi after the house of their
 fathers; [even] the chief of the fathers, as they were counted
 by number of names by their polls, that did the work for the
 service of the house of the LORD, from the age of twenty years
 and upward.
23:25 For David said, The LORD God of Israel hath given rest to
 his people, that they may dwell in Jerusalem for ever;
23:26 And also to the Levites: they shall no [more] carry the
 tabernacle, nor any vessels of it for its service.
23:27 For by the last words of David the Levites [were] numbered
 from twenty years old and above:
23:28 Because their office [was] to wait on the sons of Aaron
 for the service of the house of the LORD, in the courts, and in
 the chambers, and in the purifying of all holy things, and the
 work of the service of the house of God;
23:29 Both for the show-bread, and for the fine flour for
 meat-offering, and for the unleavened cakes, and for [that
 which is baked in] the pan, and for that which is fried, and
 for all manner of measure and size;
23:30 And to stand every morning to thank and praise the LORD,
 and likewise at evening;
23:31 And to offer all burnt-sacrifices to the LORD on the
 sabbaths, in the new moons, and on the set feasts, by number,
 according to the order commanded to them, continually before
 the LORD:
23:32 And that they should keep the charge of the tabernacle of
 the congregation, and the charge of the holy [place], and the
 charge of the sons of Aaron their brethren, in the service of
 the house of the LORD.
