1 Chronicles 26

1 Concerning the divisions of the porters: Of the Korhites was Meshelemyah the son of Kore, of the sons of Asaph.

2 And the sons of Meshelemyah were Zechariah (Zekharyahu) the firstborn, Yediael the second, Zevadyahu the third, Yatniel the fourth,

3 Elam the fifth, Yehochanan the sixth, Elioenai the seventh.

4 Moreover the sons of Oved-Edom were Shemayah the firstborn, Yehozavad the second, Yoach the third, and Sacar the fourth, and Nethaneel the fifth,

5 Ammiel the sixth, Yissaskhar the seventh, Peulthai the eighth; for God (Elohim) blessed him.

6 Also unto Shemayah his son were sons born, that ruled throughout the house of their father; for they were mighty men of valour.

7 The sons of Shemayah: Othni, and Rephael, and Oved, Elzabad, whose brethren were strong men, Elihu, and Semakhyahu.

8 All these of the sons of Oved-Edom; they and their sons and their brethren, able men for strength for the service, were threescore and two of Oved-Edom.

9 And Meshelemyah had sons and brethren, strong men, eighteen.

10 Also Hosah, of the children of Merari, had sons; Simri the chief, (for though he was not the firstborn, yet his father made him the chief;)

11 Hilkiah (Chilqiyah) the second, Tebaliah (Tevalyahu) the third, Zechariah (Zekharyahu) the fourth; all the sons and brethren of Hosah were thirteen.

12 Among these were the divisions of the porters, even among the chief men, having wards one against another, to minister in the house of יהוה.

13 And they cast lots, as well the small as the great, according to the house of their fathers, for every gate.

14 And the lot eastward fell to Shelemyah. Then for Zechariah (Zekharyahu) his son, a wise counsellor, they cast lots; and his lot came out northward.

15 To Oved-Edom southward; and to his sons the house of Asuppim.

16 To Shuppim and Hosah the lot came forth westward, with the gate Shallecheth, by the causeway of the going up, ward against ward.

17 Eastward were six Levites (Lewiyim), northward four a day, southward four a day, and toward Asuppim two and two.

18 At Parbar westward, four at the causeway, and two at Parbar.

19 These are the divisions of the porters among the sons of Kore, and among the sons of Merari.

20 And of the Levites (Lewiyim), Achiyah was over the treasures of the house of God (Elohim), and over the treasures of the dedicated things.

21 As concerning the sons of Laadan; the sons of the Gershonite Laadan, chief fathers, even of Laadan the Gershonite, were Yeieli.

22 The sons of Yeieli: Zetham, and Yoel his brother, who were over the treasures of the house of יהוה.

23 Of the Amramites, and the Izharites, the Hebronites, and the Uzzielites;

24 And Shebuel the son of Gershom, the son of Moses (Mosheh), was ruler of the treasures.

25 And his brethren by Eliezer; Rechavyah his son, and N51Jeshaiah (Yeshayahu) his son, and Yoram his son, and Zichri his son, and Shelomith his son.

26 Whom Shelomith and his brethren were over all the treasures of the dedicated things, which Dawid the king, and the chief fathers, the captains over thousands and hundreds, and the captains of the army, had dedicated.

27 Out of the spoils won in battles did they dedicate to maintain the house of יהוה.

28 And all that Shemuel the seer, and Saul the son of Kish, and Abner the son of Ner, and Yoav the son of Zeruyah, had dedicated; and whosoever had dedicated any thing, it was under the hand of Shelomith, and of his brethren.

29 Of the Izharites, Kenanyahu and his sons were for the outward business over Yisrael, for officers and judges.

30 And of the Hebronites, Chashavyah and his brethren, men of valour, a thousand and seven hundred, were officers among them of Yisrael on this side Jordan (Yarden) westward in all the business of יהוה, and in the service of the king.

31 Among the Hebronites was Jerijah (Yeriyah) the chief, even among the Hebronites, according to the generations of his fathers. In the fortieth year of the reign of Dawid they were sought for, and there were found among them mighty men of valour at Yazer of Gilad.

32 And his brethren, men of valour, were two thousand and seven hundred chief fathers, whom King Dawid made rulers over the Reubenites (Reuveni), the Gadites, and the half tribe of Menashsheh, for every matter pertaining to God (Elohim), and affairs of the king.
