Nehemiah 11

1And the chiefs of the people dwelt in Jerusalem. And the rest of the people cast lots, to bring one of every ten to dwell in Jerusalem the holy city, and nine-tenths in the other cities. 2And the people blessed all the men that volunteered to dwell in Jerusalem. 3Now these are the chiefs of the province who dwelt in Jerusalem, and in the cities of Judah; every man dwelt in his possession in their cities: Israel, the priests, and the Levites, and the Nethinim, and the children of the servants of Solomon. 4And there dwelt in Jerusalem some of the children of Judah, and of the children of Benjamin. Of the children of Judah; Athaiah son of Uzziah, the son of Zechariah, the son of Amariah, the son of Shephatiah, the son of Mahalalel, and some of the sons of Perez; 5and Maaseiah son of Baruch, son of Col-Hozeh, son of Hazaiah, son of Adaiah, son of Joarib, son of Zechariah, son of Shiloni. 6All the sons of Perez who dwelt in Jerusalem were four hundred and sixty-eight men of might. 7And these were the children of Benjamin: Sallu son of Meshullam, son of Joed, son of Pedaiah, son of Kolaiah, son of Maaseiah, son of Ithiel, son of Jeshaiah. 8And after him Gabbai, Sallai, nine hundred and twenty-eight. 9And Joel son of Zichri was overseer over them: and Judah son of Senuah was second in the city. 10Of the priests: both Jedaiah son of Joiarib, and Jachin. 11Seraiah, son of Hilkiah, son of Meshullam, son of Zadok, son of Maraioth, son of Ahitub, was over the house of God. 12And their brothers doing the work of the house were eight hundred and twenty-two; and Adaiah son of Jeroham, son of Pelaliah, son of Amzi, son of Zechariah, son of Pashhur, son of Malchijah, 13and his brothers, chiefs of families, two hundred and forty-two: and Amashai son of Azarel, son of Meshillemoth, son of Immer, 14and his brothers, mighty men of war, a hundred and twenty-eight: and their overseer was Zabdiel son of one of the great men. 15And of the Levites: Shemaiah, son of Hasshub, 17Matthaniah son of Micha, and Jobeb son of Samui, 18two hundred and eighty-four. 19And the porters: Akkub, Talmon, and their brothers, a hundred and seventy-two. 22And the overseer of the Levites was the son of Bani, son of Uzzi, son of Hashabiah, the son of Micha. Of the sons of Asaph the singers some were over the house of God, 23for so was the king's commandment concerning them. 24And Pethahiah son of Baseza was in attendance on the king in every matter for the people, 25and with regard to villages in their country district. And some of the children of Judah dwelt in Kirjath Arba, 26and in Jeshua, 27and in Beersheba. 30And their villages were Lachish and her lands: and they pitched their tents in Beersheba. 31And the children of Benjamin dwelt from Gibeah to Michmash. 36And of the Levites there were divisions to Judah and to Benjamin.
