1 Chronicles 9
A Faithful Version

1So all Israel enrolled themselves by genealogies. And behold, they were written in the book of the kings of Israel and Judah, who were exiled to Babylon for their transgression.

2And the first people who dwelt in their possessions in their cities were the Israelites, the priests, Levites, and the temple servants. 3And in Jerusalem lived the children of Judah, and some of the children of Benjamin, and of the children of Ephraim, and Manasseh: 4Uthai the son of Ammihud, the son of Omri, the son of Imri, the son of Bani, of the sons of Pharez the son of Judah. 5And of the Shilonites, Asaiah the firstborn and his sons. 6And of the sons of Zerah, Jeuel, and their brethren, six hundred and ninety. 7And of the sons of Benjamin, Sallu the son of Meshullam, the son of Hodaviah, the son of Hassenuah, 8And Ibneiah the son of Jeroham, and Elah the son of Uzzi, the son of Michri, and Meshullam the son of Shephathiah, the son of Reuel, the son of Ibnijah, 9And their brethren, according to their generations, nine hundred and fifty-six. All these men were chief of the fathers in the house of their fathers.

10And of the priests, Jedaiah, and Jehoiarib, and Jachin, 11And Azariah the son of Hilkiah, the son of Meshullam, the son of Zadok, the son of Meraioth, the son of Ahitub, the ruler of the house of God, 12And Adaiah the son of Jeroham, the son of Pashhur, the son of Malchijah, and Maasai the son of Adiel, the son of Jahzerah, the son of Meshullam, the son of Meshillemith, the son of Immer, 13And their brethren, heads of their fathers' house, seventeen hundred and sixty very able men for the work of the service of the house of God.

14And of the Levites: Shemaiah the son of Hasshub, the son of Azrikam, the son of Hashabiah, of the sons of Merari, 15And Bakbakkar, Heresh, and Galal, and Mattaniah the son of Micah, the son of Zichri, the son of Asaph, 16And Obadiah the son of Shemaiah, the son of Galal, the son of Jeduthun, and Berechiah the son of Asa, the son of Elkanah, who lived in the villages of the Netophathites.

17And the gatekeepers were Shallum, and Akkub, and Talmon, and Ahiman, and their brothers; Shallum was the chief. 18And before they were at the king's gate eastward, they were gatekeepers in the companies of the children of Levi. 19And Shallum the son of Kore, the son of Ebiasaph, the son of Korah, and his brethren, of the house of his father, the Korahites, were over the work of the service, keepers of the gates of the tabernacle. And their fathers were over the camp of the LORD, keepers of the entrance. 20And Phinehas the son of Eleazar was the ruler over them in time past, and the LORD was with him. 21Zechariah the son of Meshelemiah was gatekeeper of the door of the tabernacle of the congregation. 22All these chosen for gatekeepers in the gates were two hundred and twelve. These were reckoned by their genealogies, in their villages, whom David and Samuel the seer ordained in their set office. 23So they and their children had the oversight of the gates of the house of the LORD, namely the house of the tabernacle, by watches. 24The gatekeepers were to the four quarters: toward the east, west, north, and south. 25And their brethren in their villages, were to come in for seven days from time to time with them. 26For the four chief gatekeepers were in a set office; they were Levites. They were also over the rooms and over the treasuries of the house of God. 27And they spent the night around the house of God because the watch was upon them. And they were to open it morning by morning.

28And certain of them were over the ministering vessels, that they should bring them in and out by count. 29Some of them also were appointed to oversee the vessels and all the instruments of the sanctuary, and the fine flour, and the wine, and the oil, and the frankincense, and the spices. 30And some of the sons of the priests made the ointment of the spices. 31And Mattithiah of the Levites, who was the firstborn of Shallum the Korahite, had the responsibility over the things that were made in the pans. 32And others of the sons of the Kohathites, from among their brethren, were over the showbread to prepare it Sabbath by Sabbath.

33And these were the singers, chief of the fathers of the Levites in the chambers; they were free of duty, for they were employed in that work day and night. 34These chief fathers of the Levites were chief throughout their generations. These lived at Jerusalem.

35And Jeiel, the father of Gibeon, lived in Gibeon. His wife's name was Maacah. 36And his firstborn son was Abdon, then Zur, and Kish, and Baal, and Ner, and Nadab, 37And Gedor, and Ahio, and Zechariah, and Mikloth. 38And Mikloth begat Shimeam. And they also dwelt with their brethren at Jerusalem, across from their brethren. 39And Ner begat Kish. And Kish begat Saul. And Saul begat Jonathan, and Malchishua, and Abinadab, and Esh-Baal. 40And the son of Jonathan was Merib- Baal. And Merib-Baal begat Micah. 41And the sons of Micah: Pithon, and Melech, and Tahrea, and Ahaz; 42And Ahaz begat Jarah. And Jarah begat Alemeth, and Azmaveth, and Zimri. And Zimri begat Moza. 43And Moza begat Binea; and Rephaiah was his son; Eleasah, his son; Azel his son. 44And to Azel were six sons, and these were their names: Azrikam, Bocheru, and Ishmael, and Sheariah, and Obadiah, and Hanan. These were the sons of Azel.
