58All of the Temple Servants and descendants of Solomon's servants numbered 392.

59Here is a list of returnees from Tel-melah, Tel-harsha, Cherub, Addan, and Immer who could not prove their ancestry and lineage from Israel: 60Descendants of Delaiah, Tobiah, and Nekoda: 652

61Descendants of the Priests: Descendants of Habaiah, Hakkoz, and Barzillai, who married one of the daughters of Barzillai from Gilead and took that name. 62These people searched for their ancestral registrations but they couldn't be located. Accordingly, they were assigned an "unclean" status and couldn't be priests. 63Governor Zerubbabel also ruled that they shouldn't eat anything holy until a priest arose with Urim and Thummim.

64The entire assembly numbered 42,360, 65not including 7,337 male and female servants, along with 200 singing men and women. 66In addition, they had 736 horses, 245 mules, 67435 camels, and 6,720 donkeys.

68When they arrived at the Temple of the LORD in Jerusalem, some of the heads of the families contributed toward building the Temple of God on its former site. 69They contributed to the treasury for this work in accordance with their ability: 61,000 golden drachma, 5,000 units of silver, and 100 priestly robes.

70As a result, the priests, descendants of Levi, certain people, the singers, door-keepers, and the Temple Servants were able to settle in their original cities, with the rest of the Israelis in their cities.
