1 Chronicles

1 Con­cern­ing the di­vi­sions of the porters: Of the Ko­rhites was Meshelemi­ah the son of Ko­re, of the sons of As­aph. 2 And the sons of Meshelemi­ah were, Zechari­ah the first­born, Je­di­ael the sec­ond, Ze­ba­di­ah the third, Jath­niel the fourth, 3 Elam the fifth, Je­ho­hanan the sixth, Elioe­nai the sev­enth. 4 More­over the sons of Obe­de­dom were, She­ma­iah the first­born, Je­hoz­abad the sec­ond, Joah the third, and Sacar the fourth, and Netha­neel the fifth, 5 Am­miel the sixth, Is­sachar the sev­enth, Peulthai the eighth: for God blessed him. 6 Also unto She­ma­iah his son were sons born, that ruled through­out the house of their fa­ther: for they were mighty men of val­our. 7 The sons of She­ma­iah; Oth­ni, and Rephael, and Obed, Elz­abad, whose brethren were strong men, Eli­hu, and Semachi­ah. 8 All these of the sons of Obe­de­dom: they and their sons and their brethren, able men for strength for the ser­vice, were three­score and two of Obe­de­dom. 9 And Meshelemi­ah had sons and brethren, strong men, eigh­teen. 10 Also Hosah, of the chil­dren of Mer­ari, had sons; Sim­ri the chief, (for though he was not the first­born, yet his fa­ther made him the chief;) 11 Hilki­ah the sec­ond, Tebali­ah the third, Zechari­ah the fourth: all the sons and brethren of Hosah were thir­teen. 12 Among these were the di­vi­sions of the porters, even among the chief men, having wards one against an­oth­er, to min­is­ter in the house of the LORD. 13 And they cast lots, as well the small as the great, ac­cord­ing to the house of their fa­thers, for ev­ery gate. 14 And the lot east­ward fell to Shelemi­ah. Then for Zechari­ah his son, a wise coun­sel­lor, they cast lots; and his lot came out north­ward. 15 To Obe­de­dom south­ward; and to his sons the house of Asup­pim. 16 To Shup­pim and Hosah the lot came forth west­ward, with the gate Shal­lecheth, by the cause­way of the go­ing up, ward against ward. 17 East­ward were six Levites, north­ward four a day, south­ward four a day, and to­ward Asup­pim two and two. 18 At Par­bar west­ward, four at the cause­way, and two at Par­bar. 19 These are the di­vi­sions of the porters among the sons of Ko­re, and among the sons of Mer­ari. 20 And of the Levites, Ahi­jah was over the trea­sures of the house of God, and over the trea­sures of the ded­i­cat­ed things. 21 As concerning the sons of Laadan; the sons of the Ger­shon­ite Laadan, chief fa­thers, even of Laadan the Ger­shon­ite, were Je­hieli. 22 The sons of Je­hieli; Zetham, and Joel his broth­er, which were over the trea­sures of the house of the LORD. 23 Of the Am­ramites, and the Izharites, the He­bronites, and the Uzzielites: 24 And She­buel the son of Ger­shom, the son of Moses, was ruler of the trea­sures. 25 And his brethren by Eliez­er; Re­habi­ah his son, and Je­sha­iah his son, and Jo­ram his son, and Zichri his son, and Sh­elomith his son. 26 Which Sh­elomith and his brethren were over all the trea­sures of the ded­i­cat­ed things, which David the king, and the chief fa­thers, the cap­tains over thou­sands and hun­dreds, and the cap­tains of the host, had ded­i­cat­ed. 27 Out of the spoils won in bat­tles did they ded­i­cate to main­tain the house of the LORD. 28 And all that Samuel the seer, and Saul the son of Kish, and Ab­n­er the son of Ner, and Joab the son of Zeruiah, had ded­i­cat­ed; and whoso­ev­er had ded­i­cat­ed any thing, it was un­der the hand of Sh­elomith, and of his brethren. 29 Of the Izharites, Chenani­ah and his sons were for the out­ward busi­ness over Is­rael, for of­fi­cers and judges. 30 And of the He­bronites, Hashabi­ah and his brethren, men of val­our, a thou­sand and sev­en hun­dred, were of­fi­cers among them of Is­rael on this side Jor­dan west­ward in all the busi­ness of the LORD, and in the ser­vice of the king. 31 Among the He­bronites was Jer­i­jah the chief, even among the He­bronites, ac­cord­ing to the gen­er­a­tions of his fa­thers. In the for­ti­eth year of the reign of David they were sought for, and there were found among them mighty men of val­our at Jaz­er of Gilead. 32 And his brethren, men of val­our, were two thou­sand and sev­en hun­dred chief fa­thers, whom king David made rulers over the Reuben­ites, the Ga­dites, and the half tribe of Man­asseh, for ev­ery mat­ter per­tain­ing to God, and af­fairs of the king.
