King James VersionNehemiah11


1 And the rulers of the peo­ple dwelt at Jerusalem: the rest of the peo­ple also cast lots, to bring one of ten to dwell in Jerusalem the holy city, and nine parts ­to dwell in other cities. 2 And the peo­ple blessed all the men, that will­ing­ly of­fered them­selves to dwell at Jerusalem. 3 Now these are the chief of the province that dwelt in Jerusalem: but in the cities of Ju­dah dwelt ev­ery one in his pos­ses­sion in their cities, ­to wit, Is­rael, the priests, and the Levites, and the Nethin­ims, and the chil­dren of Solomon's ser­vants. 4 And at Jerusalem dwelt certain of the chil­dren of Ju­dah, and of the chil­dren of Ben­jamin. Of the chil­dren of Ju­dah; Atha­iah the son of Uzzi­ah, the son of Zechari­ah, the son of Amari­ah, the son of Shep­ha­ti­ah, the son of Ma­ha­laleel, of the chil­dren of Perez; 5 And Maa­seiah the son of Baruch, the son of Col­hozeh, the son of Haz­a­iah, the son of Ada­iah, the son of Joiarib, the son of Zechari­ah, the son of Shiloni. 6 All the sons of Perez that dwelt at Jerusalem were four hun­dred three­score and eight valiant men. 7 And these are the sons of Ben­jamin; Sal­lu the son of Meshul­lam, the son of Joed, the son of Peda­iah, the son of Ko­la­iah, the son of Maa­seiah, the son of Ithiel, the son of Je­sa­iah. 8 And af­ter him Gab­bai, Sal­lai, nine hun­dred twen­ty and eight. 9 And Joel the son of Zichri was their over­seer: and Ju­dah the son of Sen­u­ah was sec­ond over the city. 10 Of the priests: Jeda­iah the son of Joiarib, Jachin. 11 Sera­iah the son of Hilki­ah, the son of Meshul­lam, the son of Zadok, the son of Meraio­th, the son of Ahi­tub, was the ruler of the house of God. 12 And their brethren that did the work of the house were eight hun­dred twen­ty and two: and Ada­iah the son of Jero­ham, the son of Pelali­ah, the son of Amzi, the son of Zechari­ah, the son of Pashur, the son of Malchi­ah, 13 And his brethren, chief of the fa­thers, two hun­dred forty and two: and Amashai the son of Aza­reel, the son of Aha­sai, the son of Meshille­moth, the son of Im­mer, 14 And their brethren, mighty men of val­our, an hun­dred twen­ty and eight: and their over­seer was Zab­diel, the son of one of the great men. 15 Also of the Levites: She­ma­iah the son of Hashub, the son of Azrikam, the son of Hashabi­ah, the son of Bun­ni; 16 And Shab­bethai and Joz­abad, of the chief of the Levites, had the over­sight of the out­ward busi­ness of the house of God. 17 And Mat­ta­ni­ah the son of Micha, the son of Zab­di, the son of As­aph, was the prin­ci­pal to be­gin the thanks­giv­ing in prayer: and Bak­buki­ah the sec­ond among his brethren, and Abda the son of Sham­mua, the son of Galal, the son of Je­duthun. 18 All the Levites in the holy city were two hun­dred fourscore and four. 19 More­over the porters, Akkub, Tal­mon, and their brethren that kept the gates, were an hun­dred sev­en­ty and two. 20 And the residue of Is­rael, of the priests, and the Levites, were in all the cities of Ju­dah, ev­ery one in his in­her­i­tance. 21 But the Nethin­ims dwelt in Ophel: and Ziha and Gis­pa were over the Nethin­ims. 22 The over­seer also of the Levites at Jerusalem was Uzzi the son of Bani, the son of Hashabi­ah, the son of Mat­ta­ni­ah, the son of Micha. Of the sons of As­aph, the singers were over the busi­ness of the house of God. 23 For it was the king's com­mand­ment con­cern­ing them, that a cer­tain por­tion should be for the singers, due for ev­ery day. 24 And Pethahi­ah the son of Meshez­abeel, of the chil­dren of Zer­ah the son of Ju­dah, was at the king's hand in all mat­ters con­cern­ing the peo­ple. 25 And for the vil­lages, with their fields, some of the chil­dren of Ju­dah dwelt at Kir­jathar­ba, and in the vil­lages there­of, and at Di­bon, and in the vil­lages there­of, and at Jek­abzeel, and in the vil­lages there­of, 26 And at Jeshua, and at Mo­ladah, and at Beth­phelet, 27 And at Haz­arshual, and at Beer­she­ba, and in the vil­lages there­of, 28 And at Zik­lag, and at Mekon­ah, and in the vil­lages there­of, 29 And at En­rim­mon, and at Zareah, and at Jar­muth, 30 Zanoah, Adul­lam, and in their vil­lages, at Lachish, and the fields there­of, at Azekah, and in the vil­lages there­of.
