61and from the descendants of the priests: the descendants of Hobaiah, the descendants of Hakkoz, the descendants of Barzillai--who had taken a wife from the daughters of Barzillai the Gileadite and was called by their name. 62These searched for their entries in the genealogical records, but they could not be found, so they were disqualified from the priesthood. 63The governor ordered them not to eat the most holy things until there was a priest who could consult the Urim and Thummim.

64The whole combined assembly numbered42,360 65not including their 7,337 male and female slaves, and their 200 male and female singers. 66They had 736 horses, 245 mules, 67 435 camels, and 6,720 donkeys.

68After they arrived at the LORD's house in Jerusalem, some of the family leaders gave freewill offerings for the house of God in order to have it rebuilt on its original site. 69Based on what they could give, they gave 61,000 gold coins, 6,250 pounds of silver, and 100 priestly garments to the treasury for the project.

70The priests, Levites, singers, gatekeepers, temple servants, and some of the people settled in their towns, and the rest of Israel settled in their towns.
