These were their priestly groups when they went to serve at the LORD's temple. Their ancestor Aaron made these rules for them, as the LORD God of Israel had commanded him.
20[The following men were leaders] for Levi's descendants [from Kohath]: Jehdeiah (for Amram's descendants through Shubael), 21Isshiah ( [for Amram's descendants] through Rehabiah), 22Jahath (for Izhar's descendants through Shelomoth), 23Jeriah (for Hebron's descendants), Amariah (the second [of Hebron's descendants]), Jahaziel (the third [of Hebron's descendants]), Jekameam (the fourth [of Hebron's descendants]), 24Shamir (for Uzziel's descendants through Micah), 25and Zechariah (for [Uzziel's] descendants through Micah's brother Isshiah). 26The following men were leaders from Levi's descendants from Merari: Mahli, Mushi, and Merari's son Jaaziah, 27Shoham, Zaccur, and Ibri (for Merari's descendants through his son Jaaziah), 28Eleazar (who had no sons, for Mahli's descendants), 29Jerahmeel (for [Mahli's] descendants through Kish), 30Mahli, Eder, and Jerimoth (for Mushi's descendants). These were Levi's descendants according to their families. 31They drew lots as their relatives, Aaron's descendants, had done. They drew them in front of King David, Zadok, Ahimelech, and the leaders of the families of the priests and Levites. The families of the oldest brother were treated the same way as those of the youngest.
