First Chronicles 9


9:1 So all Israel were reckoned by genealogies; and behold,
 they [were] written in the book of the kings of Israel and
 Judah, [who] were carried away to Babylon for their
 transgression.
9:2 Now the first inhabitants that [dwelt] in their possessions
 in their cities [were], the Israelites, the priests, Levites,
 and the Nethinims.
9:3 And in Jerusalem dwelt of the children of Judah, and of the
 children of Benjamin, and of the children of Ephraim, and
 Manasseh;
9:4 Uthai the son of Ammihud, the son of Omri, the son of Imri,
 the son of Bani, of the children of Pharez the son of Judah.
9:5 And of the Shilonites; Asaiah the first-born, and his sons.
9:6 And of the sons of Zerah; Jeuel, and their brethren, six
 hundred and ninety.
9:7 And of the sons of Benjamin; Sallu the son of Meshullam,
 the son of Hodaviah, the son of Hasenuah,
9:8 And Ibneiah the son of Jeroham, and Elah the son of Uzzi,
 the son of Michri, and Meshullam the son of Shephatiah, the son
 of Reuel, the son of Ibnijah;
9:9 And their brethren, according to their generations, nine
 hundred and fifty and six. All these men [were] chief of the
 fathers in the house of their fathers.
9:10 And of the priests; Jedaiah, and Jehoiarib, and Jachin,
9:11 And Azariah the son of Hilkiah, the son of Meshullam, the
 son of Zadok, the son of Meraioth, the son of Ahitub, the ruler
 of the house of God;
9:12 And Adaiah the son of Jeroham, the son of Pashur, the son
 of Malchijah, and Maasiai the son of Adiel, the son of
 Jahzerah, the son of Meshullam, the son of Meshillemith, the
 son of Immer;
9:13 And their brethren, heads of the house of their fathers, a
 thousand and seven hundred and sixty; very able men for the
 work of the service of the house of God.
9:14 And of the Levites; Shemaiah the son of Hasshub, the son
 of Azrikam, the son of Hashabiah, of the sons of Merari;
9:15 And Bakbakkar, Heresh, and Galal, and Mattaniah the son of
 Micah, the son of Zichri, the son of Asaph;
9:16 And Obadiah the son of Shemaiah, the son of Galal, the son
 of Jeduthun, and Berechiah the son of Asa, the son of Elkanah,
 that dwelt in the villages of the Netophathites.
9:17 And the porters [were] Shallum, and Akkub, and Talmon, and
 Ahiman, and their brethren: Shallum [was] the chief;
9:18 Who hitherto [waited] in the king's gate eastward: they
 [were] porters in the companies of the children of Levi.
9:19 And Shallum the son of Kore, the son of Ebiasaph, the son
 of Korah, and his brethren of the house of his father, the
 Korahites, [were] over the work of the service, keepers of the
 gates of the tabernacle: and their fathers, [being] over the
 host of the LORD, [were] keepers of the entry.
9:20 And Phinehas the son of Eleazar was the ruler over them in
 time past, [and] the LORD [was] with him.
9:21 [And] Zechariah the son of Meshelemiah [was] porter of the
 door of the tabernacle of the congregation.
9:22 All these [who were] chosen to be porters in the gates
 [were] two hundred and twelve. These were reckoned by their
 genealogy in their villages, whom David and Samuel the seer
 ordained in their set office.
9:23 So they and their children [had] the oversight of the
 gates of the house of the LORD, [namely], the house of the
 tabernacle, by wards.
9:24 In four quarters were the porters, towards the east, west,
 north and south.
9:25 And their brethren, [who were] in their villages, [were]
 to come after seven days from time to time with them.
9:26 For these Levites, the four chief porters, were in [their]
 set office, and were over the chambers and treasuries of the
 house of God.
9:27 And they lodged about the house of God, because the charge
 [was] upon them, and the opening of it every morning
 [pertained] to them.
9:28 And [certain] of them had the charge of the ministering
 vessels, that they should bring them in and out by number.
9:29 [Some] of them also [were] appointed to oversee the
 vessels, and all the instruments of the sanctuary, and the fine
 flour, and the wine, and the oil, and the frankincense, and the
 spices.
9:30 And [some] of the sons of the priests made the ointment of
 the spices.
9:31 And Mattithiah, [one] of the Levites, who [was] the
 first-born of Shallum the Korahite, had the set office over the
 things that were made in the pans.
9:32 And [others] of their brethren, of the sons of the
 Kohathites, [were] over the show-bread, to prepare [it] every
 sabbath.
9:33 And these [are] the singers, chief of the fathers of the
 Levites, [who remaining] in the chambers [were] free: for they
 were employed in [that] work day and night.
9:34 These chief fathers of the Levites [were] chief throughout
 their generations; these dwelt at Jerusalem.
9:35 And in Gibeon dwelt the father of Gibeon, Jehiel, whose
 wife's name [was] Maachah:
9:36 And his first-born son Abdon, then Zur, and Kish, and
 Baal, and Ner, and Nadab,
9:37 And Gedor, and Ahio, and Zechariah, and Mikloth.
9:38 And Mikloth begat Shimeam. And they also dwelt with their
 brethren at Jerusalem, over against their brethren.
9:39 And Ner begat Kish; and Kish begat Saul; and Saul begat
 Jonathan, and Malchi-shua, and Abinadab, and Esh-baal.
9:40 And the son of Jonathan [was] Merib-baal: and Merib-baal
 begat Micah.
9:41 And the sons of Micah [were], Pithon, and Melech, and
 Tahrea, [and Ahaz].
9:42 And Ahaz begat Jarah; and Jarah begat Alemeth, and
 Azmaveth, and Zimri; and Zimri begat Moza;
9:43 And Moza begat Binea; and Rephaiah his son, Eleasah his
 son, Azel his son.
9:44 And Azel had six sons, whose names [are] these, Azrikam,
 Bocheru, and Ishmael, and Sheariah, and Obadiah, and Hanan:
 these [were] the sons of Azel.
