Porters

Kept the gates of private houses and of cities, 2 Samuel 18:26 2 Kings 7:10 Mark 13:34 John 10:3. The porters of the temple were Levites, at one period four thousand in number, divided into courses, 1 Chronicles 16:42 23:5. They stood on guard at every gate, and were on duty within the temple in their regular courses, 1 Chronicles 16:42 23:5.

They stood on guard at every gate, and were on duty within the temple in their regular courses, 1 Chronicles 26:1,13,19 2 Chronicles 8:14 35:15. By night also they cheered the lonely hours with songs of praise, Psalm 134:1-3. We read, in 2 1 Corinthians 13:14, of the faithful service they rendered in protecting Joash and slaying Athaliah.
