1And the rulers of the people dwelt at Jerusalem; and the rest of the people also cast lots, to bring one of ten to dwell in Jerusalem, the holy city, and nine parts to dwell in other cities. 2And the people blessed all the men who willingly offered themselves to dwell at Jerusalem.

3Now these are the chiefs of the province that dwelt in Jerusalem; but in the cities of Judah dwelt every one in his possession in their cities, to wit, Israel, the priests, and the Levites, and the Nethinim, and the children of Solomon's servants.

4And at Jerusalem dwelt certain of the children of Judah, and of the children of Benjamin. Of the children of Judah: Athaiah the son of Uzziah, the son of Zechariah, the son of Amariah, the son of Shephatiah, the son of Mahalalel, of the children of Perez; 5And Maaseiah, the son of Baruch, the son of Colhozeh, the son of Hazaiah, the son of Adaiah, the son of Joiarib, the son of Zechariah, the son of Shilonite. 6All the sons of Perez who dwelt at Jerusalem were four hundred threescore and eight valiant men.

7And these are the sons of Benjamin: Sallu, the son of Meshullam, the son of Joed, the son of Pedaiah, the son of Kolaiah, the son of Maaseiah, the son of Ithiel, the son of Jeshaiah. 8And after him Gabbai, Sallai, nine hundred twenty and eight. 9And Joel, the son of Zichri, was their overseer; and Judah, the son of Hassenuah, was second over the city.

10Of the priests: Jedaiah, the son of Joiarib, Jachin, 11Seraiah, the son of Hilkiah, the son of Meshullam, the son of Zadok, the son of Meraioth, the son of Ahitub, was the ruler of the house of God. 12And their brethren who did the work of the house were eight hundred twenty and two; and Adaiah, the son of Jeroham, the son of Pelaliah, the son of Amzi, the son of Zechariah, the son of Pashhur, the son of Malchiah, 13And his brethren, heads {chief} of the fathers' houses, two hundred forty and two; and Amashai, the son of Azareel, the son of Ahsai, the son of Meshillemoth, the son of Immer, 14And their brethren, mighty men of valor, an hundred twenty and eight; and their overseer was Zabdiel, the son of Haggedolim {one of the great men}.

15Also of the Levites: Shemaiah, the son of Hashub, the son of Azrikam, the son of Hashabiah, the son of Bunni; 16And Shabbethai and Jozabad, of the chiefs of the Levites, had the oversight of the outward business of the house of God. 17And Mattaniah, the son of Micha, the son of Zabdi, the son of Asaph, was the chief {principal} to begin the thanksgiving in prayer; and Bakbukiah, the second among his brethren, and Abda, the son of Shammua, the son of Galal, the son of Jeduthun. 18All the Levites in the holy city were two hundred fourscore and four.

19Moreover, the porters, Akkub, Talmon, and their brethren who kept the gates, were an hundred seventy and two.

20And the residue of Israel, of the priests, and the Levites, were in all the cities of Judah, every one in his inheritance. 21But the Nethinim dwelt in Ophel; and Ziha and Gishpa were over the Nethinim. 22The overseer also of the Levites at Jerusalem was Uzzi, the son of Bani, the son of Hashabiah, the son of Mattaniah, the son of Micha, of the sons of Asaph, the singers, were over the business of the house of God. 23For it was the king's commandment concerning them, that a certain portion should be for the singers, as {due for} every day required. 24And Pethahiah, the son of Meshezabel, of the children of Zerah, the son of Judah, was at the king's hand in all matters concerning the people.

25And as for the villages, with their fields, some of the children of Judah dwelt at Kiriath-arba, and in its villages {thereof}, and at Dibon, and in its villages {thereof}, and at Jekabzeel, and in its villages {thereof}, 26And at Jeshua, and at Moladah, and at Beth-pelet, 27And at Hazar-shual, and at Beersheba, and in its villages {thereof}, 28And at Ziklag, and at Meconah, and in its villages {thereof}, 29And at En-rimmon, and at Zorah, and at Jarmuth, 30Zanoah, Adullam, and in their villages, at Lachish, and its fields {thereof}, at Azekah, and in its villages {thereof}.
