The Levitical Gatekeepers

1As for the divisions of the gatekeepers: of the Korahites, Meshelemiah the son of Kore, of the sons of Asaph.
  2Meshelemiah had sons: Zechariah the firstborn, Jediael the second, Zebadiah the third, Jathniel the fourth,
  3Elam the fifth, Jehohanan the sixth, Eliehoenai the seventh.
  4Obed-edom had sons: Shemaiah the firstborn, Jehozabad the second, Joah the third, and Sacar the fourth and Nethanel the fifth,
  5Ammiel the sixth, Issachar the seventh, Peullethai the eighth; for God blessed him.
  6Also to Shemaiah his son, sons were born who ruled over the house of their father, for they were mighty men of valor.
  7The sons of Shemaiah: Othni and Rephael and Obed and Elzabad, whose relatives, Elihu and Semachiah, were valiant men.
  8All these were of the sons of Obed-edom, they and their sons and their brothers, able men with strength for the service; 62 of Obed-edom.
  9Meshelemiah had sons and brothers, valiant men, 18.
  10Also, Hosah of the children of Merari had sons: Shimri the chief, (for although he was not the firstborn, his father made him chief),
  11Hilkiah the second, Tebaliah the third, Zechariah the fourth: all the sons and brothers of Hosah were 13.

12Of these were the divisions of the gatekeepers, corresponding to the chief men, having terms of duty like their brothers to minister in the house of Yahweh.
  13They cast lots, the small as well as the great according to their fathers’ houses, for every gate.

14The lot for the east gate fell to Shelemiah. Then for Zechariah his son, a wise counselor, they cast lots, and his lot came out for the north gate.
  15To Obed-edom the south gate, and to his sons the storerooms.
  16To Shuppim and Hosah fell the west with the gate of Shallecheth, at the roadway that goes up to the Temple; guard opposite to guard.

17Eastward were six Levites, northward four a day, southward four a day, and for the storehouse two and two.
  18For Parbar westward, four at the causeway and two at Parbar.
  19These were the divisions of the doorkeepers of the sons of the Korahites and of the sons of Merari.

The Levitical Treasurers and Other Officials

20Of the Levites, Ahijah was over the treasures of God’s house and over the treasures of the dedicated things.
  21The sons of Ladan, the sons of the Gershonites belonging to Ladan, the heads of the fathers’ households belonging to Ladan the Gershonite, Jehieli.
  22The sons of Jehieli: Zetham and Joel his brother, over the treasures of the house of Yahweh.

23Of the Amramites, of the Izharites, of the Hebronites, of the Uzzielites;
  24and Shebuel the son of Gershom, the son of Moses, was ruler over the treasures.
  25His brothers: of Eliezer, Rehabiah his son, and Jeshaiah his son, and Joram his son, and Zichri his son, and Shelomoth his son.
  26This Shelomoth and his brothers were over all the treasures of the dedicated things that David the king, and the heads of the fathers’ households, the captains over thousands and hundreds and the captains of the army, had dedicated.
  27They dedicated some of the spoil won in battles to repair the house of Yahweh.
  28All that Samuel the seer and Saul the son of Kish and Abner the son of Ner and Joab the son of Zeruiah had dedicated, whoever had dedicated anything, it was under the hand of Shelomoth and of his brothers.

29Of the Izharites, Chenaniah and his sons were for the outward business over Israel, for officers and judges.
  30Of the Hebronites, Hashabiah and his brothers, men of valor, 1,700, had the oversight of Israel beyond the Jordan westward, for all the business of Yahweh and for the service of the king.
  31Of the Hebronites was Jerijah the chief, even of the Hebronites according to their generations by fathers’ households. In the fortieth year of the reign of David they were sought for, and there were found among them mighty men of valor at Jazer of Gilead.
  32His brothers, men of valor, were 2,700, heads of fathers’ households whom king David made overseers over the Reubenites and the Gadites, and the half-tribe of the Manassites, for every matter pertaining to God and for the affairs of the king.
