58All the Temple servants and the sons of Solomon’s servants were 392.

59These were those who came up from Tel Melah, Tel Harsha, Cherub, Addan, and Immer; but they could not prove their fathers’ houses or their descent, whether they were of Israel:

60the sons of Delaiah, the sons of Tobiah, the sons of Nekoda, 652.

61Of the sons of the priests: the sons of Habaiah, the sons of Hakkoz, the sons of Barzillai (who took a wife from the daughters of Barzillai the Gileadite and he was called by their name).
  62These sought their place among those who were registered by genealogy, but they were not found there so they were considered unclean and excluded from the priesthood.
  63The governor said to them that they could not eat of the most holy things until a priest stood up with the Urim and Thummim.

64The whole assembly together was 42,360,
  65besides their male slaves and their female slaves, of whom there were 7,337; and they had 200 singing men and singing women.
  66Their horses were 736, their mules, 245,
  67their camels, 435, their donkeys, 6,720.

Gifts for the Work

68Some of the heads of fathers’ households, when they came to the house of Yahweh that is in Jerusalem, offered willingly for God’s house to set it up on its site.
  69According to their ability they gave into the treasury for the work, 61,000 darics of gold and 5,000 minas of silver, and 100 priests’ garments.
  70Now the priests, and the Levites, and some of the people, and the singers, and the gatekeepers, and the Temple servants, lived in their cities, and all Israel in their cities.
