Literal Standard Version Par ▾ 
1And all [those of] Israel have reckoned themselves by genealogy, and behold, they are written on the scroll of the kings of Israel and Judah—they were removed to Babylon for their trespass.

2And the first inhabitants, who [are] in their possession, in their cities, of Israel, [are] the priests, the Levites, and the Nethinim. 3And those who dwelt in Jerusalem of the sons of Judah, and of the sons of Benjamin, and of the sons of Ephraim and Manasseh: 4Uthai son of Ammihud, son of Omri, son of Imri, son of Bani, of the sons of Perez, son of Judah. 5And of the Shilonite: Asaiah the firstborn, and his sons. 6And of the sons of Zerah: Jeuel, and their brothers—six hundred and ninety. 7And of the sons of Benjamin: Sallu son of Meshullam, son of Hodaviah, son of Hassenuah, 8and Ibneiah son of Jeroham, and Elah son of Uzzi, son of Michri, and Meshullam son of Shephatiah, son of Reuel, son of Ibnijah. 9And their brothers, according to their generations, [are] nine hundred and fifty-six. All these [are] men, heads of fathers, according to the house of their fathers.

10And of the priests: Jedaiah, and Jehoiarib, and Jachin, 11and Azariah son of Hilkiah, son of Meshullam, son of Zadok, son of Meraioth, son of Ahitub, leader in the house of God; 12and Adaiah son of Jeroham, son of Pashhur, son of Malchijah, and Maasai son of Adiel, son of Jahzerah, son of Meshullam, son of Meshillemith, son of Immer. 13And their brothers, heads of the house of their fathers, [are] one thousand and seven hundred and sixty, mighty in valor, for the work of the service of the house of God.

14And of the Levites: Shemaiah son of Hashshub, son of Azrikam, son of Hashabiah, of the sons of Merari; 15and Bakbakkar, Heresh, and Galal, and Mattaniah son of Micah, son of Zichri, son of Asaph; 16and Obadiah son of Shemariah, son of Galal, son of Jeduthun, and Berechiah, son of Asa, son of Elkanah, who is dwelling in the villages of the Netophathite.

17And the gatekeepers [are] Shallum, and Akkub, and Talmon, and Ahiman, and their brothers—Shallum [is] the head; 18and until now they [are] at the gate of the king eastward; they [are] the gatekeepers for the companies of the sons of Levi. 19And Shallum son of Kore, son of Ebiasaph, son of Korah, and his brothers, of the house of his father, the Korahites, [are] over the work of the service, keepers of the thresholds of the tent, and their fathers [are] over the camp of YHWH, keepers of the entrance; 20and Phinehas son of Eleazar has been leader over them formerly; YHWH [is] with him. 21Zechariah son of Meshelemiah [is] gatekeeper at the opening of the Tent of Meeting. 22All of those who are chosen for gatekeepers at the thresholds [are] two hundred and twelve; they [are] in their villages, by their genealogy; they whom David and Samuel the seer appointed in their office. 23And they and their sons [are] over the gates of the house of YHWH, even of the house of the tent, by watches. 24The gatekeepers are at [the] four sides: east, west, north, and south. 25And their brothers in their villages [are] to come in with these for seven days from time to time. 26For the four chiefs of the gatekeepers in office, they are Levites, and they have been over the chambers, and over the treasuries of the house of God, 27and they lodge around the house of God, for the watch [is] on them, and they [are] over the opening, even morning by morning.

28And [some] of them [are] over the vessels of service, for they bring them in by number, and by number they take them out. 29And [some] of them are appointed over the vessels, even over all the vessels of the holy place, and over the fine flour, and the wine, and the oil, and the frankincense, and the spices. 30And [some] of the sons of the priests are mixing the mixture for spices. 31And Mattithiah of the Levites (he [is] the firstborn to Shallum the Korahite), [is] in office over the work of the pans. 32And of the sons of the Kohathite, [some] of their brothers [are] over the bread of the arrangement, to prepare [it] Sabbath by Sabbath.

33And these who sing, heads of fathers of the Levites, in the chambers, [are] free, for [they are] over them in the work by day and by night. 34These heads of the fathers of the Levites [are] heads throughout their generations. These have dwelt in Jerusalem.

35And the father of Gibeon, Jehiel, has dwelt in Gibeon, and the name of his wife [is] Maachah; 36and his son, the firstborn, [is] Abdon, and Zur, and Kish, and Ba‘al, and Ner, and Nadab, 37and Gedor, and Ahio, and Zechariah, and Mikloth. 38And Mikloth begot Shimeam, and they have also dwelt opposite their brothers—with their brothers in Jerusalem. 39And Ner begot Kish, and Kish begot Saul, and Saul begot Jonathan, and Malchi-Shua, and Abinadab, and Esh-Ba‘al. 40And a son of Jonathan [is] Merib-Ba‘al, and Merib-Ba‘al begot Micah. 41And sons of Micah: Pithon, and Melech, and Tahrea, 42and Ahaz—he begot Jaarah, and Jaarah begot Alemeth, and Azmaveth, and Zimri, and Zimri begot Moza, 43and Moza begot Binea, and Rephaiah his son, Eleasah his son, Azel his son. 44And to Azel [are] six sons, and these [are] their names: Azrikam, Bocheru, and Ishmael, and Sheariah, and Obadiah, and Hanan; these [are] sons of Azel.
