King James VersionNehemiah7


1 Now it came to pass, when the wall was built, and I had set up the doors, and the porters and the singers and the Levites were ap­point­ed, 2 That I gave my broth­er Hanani, and Hana­ni­ah the ruler of the palace, charge over Jerusalem: for he was a faith­ful man, and feared God above many. 3 And I said unto them, Let not the gates of Jerusalem be opened un­til the sun be hot; and while they stand by, let them shut the doors, and bar them: and ap­point watch­es of the in­hab­i­tants of Jerusalem, ev­ery one in his watch, and ev­ery one ­to be over against his house. 4 Now the city was large and great: but the peo­ple were few there­in, and the hous­es were not build­ed. 5 And my God put into mine heart to gath­er to­geth­er the no­bles, and the rulers, and the peo­ple, that they might be reck­oned by ge­neal­o­gy. And I found a reg­is­ter of the ge­neal­o­gy of them which came up at the first, and found writ­ten there­in, 6 These are the chil­dren of the province, that went up out of the cap­tiv­i­ty, of those that had been car­ried away, whom Neb­uchad­nez­zar the king of Baby­lon had car­ried away, and came again to Jerusalem and to Ju­dah, ev­ery one unto his city; 7 Who came with Zerub­ba­bel, Jeshua, Ne­hemi­ah, Azari­ah, Raami­ah, Na­hamani, Morde­cai, Bil­shan, Mis­pereth, Big­vai, Ne­hum, Baanah.

Shal­mai, 49 The chil­dren of Hanan, the chil­dren of Gid­del, the chil­dren of Ga­har, 50 The chil­dren of Rea­iah, the chil­dren of Rezin, the chil­dren of Neko­da, 51 The chil­dren of Gaz­zam, the chil­dren of Uz­za, the chil­dren of Phaseah, 52 The chil­dren of Be­sai, the chil­dren of Me­u­nim, the chil­dren of Nephish­es­im, 53 The chil­dren of Bak­buk, the chil­dren of Hakupha, the chil­dren of Harhur, 54 The chil­dren of Ba­zlith, the chil­dren of Mehi­da, the chil­dren of Har­sha, 55 The chil­dren of Barkos, the chil­dren of Sis­era, the chil­dren of Tamah, 56 The chil­dren of

of Solomon's ser­vants, were three hun­dred nine­ty and two. 61 And these were they which went up also from Telme­lah, Tel­hare­sha, Cherub, Ad­don, and Im­mer: but they could not shew their father's house, nor their seed, whether they were of Is­rael. 62 The chil­dren of De­la­iah, the chil­dren of To­bi­ah, the chil­dren of Neko­da, six hun­dred forty and two. 63 And of the priests: the chil­dren of Haba­iah, the chil­dren of Koz, the chil­dren of Barzil­lai, which took one of the daugh­ters of Barzil­lai the Gilea­dite to wife, and was called af­ter their name. 64 These sought their reg­is­ter among those that were reck­oned by ge­neal­o­gy, but it was not found: there­fore were they, as pol­lut­ed, put from the priest­hood. 65 And the Tir­shatha said unto them, that they should not eat of the most holy things, till there stood up a priest with Urim and Thum­mim. 66 The whole con­gre­ga­tion to­geth­er was forty and two thou­sand three hun­dred and three­score, 67 Be­side their manser­vants and their maid­ser­vants, of whom there were sev­en thou­sand three hun­dred thir­ty and sev­en: and they had two hun­dred forty and five singing men and singing wom­en. 68 Their hors­es, sev­en hun­dred thir­ty and six: their mules, two hun­dred forty and five: 69 Their camels, four hun­dred thir­ty and five: six thou­sand sev­en hun­dred and twen­ty ass­es. 70 And some of the chief of the fa­thers gave unto the work. The Tir­shatha gave to the trea­sure a thou­sand drams of gold, fifty ba­sons, five hun­dred and thir­ty priests' gar­ments. 71 And some of the chief of the fa­thers gave to the trea­sure of the work twen­ty thou­sand drams of gold, and two thou­sand and two hun­dred pound of sil­ver. 72 And that which the rest of the peo­ple gave was twen­ty thou­sand drams of gold, and two thou­sand pound of sil­ver, and three­score and sev­en priests' gar­ments. 73 So the priests, and the Levites, and the porters, and the singers, and some of the peo­ple, and the Nethin­ims, and all Is­rael, dwelt in their cities; and when the sev­enth month came, the chil­dren of Is­rael were in their cities.
