1 Chronicles 91So all Israel were reckoned by genealogies. And, behold, they are written in the book of the kings of Israel. And Judah was carried away captive to Babylon for their transgression. 2Now the first inhabitants who dwelt in their possessions in their cities were Israelites, the priests, the Levites, and the Nethinim. 3And in Jerusalem dwelt of the sons of Judah, and of the sons of Benjamin, and of the sons of Ephraim and Manasseh: 4Uthai the son of Ammihud, the son of Omri, the son of Imri, the son of Bani, of the sons of Perez the son of Judah. 5And of the Shilonites: 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 the son of Meshullam, the son of Hodaviah, the son of Hassenuah, 8and Ibneiah the son of Jeroham, and Elah the son of Uzzi, the son of Michri, and Meshullam the son of Shephatiah, the son of Reuel, the son of Ibnijah, 9and their brothers, according to their generations, nine hundred and fifty-six. All these men were heads of fathers by their fathers' houses. 10And of the priests: Jedaiah, and Jehoiarib, Jachin, 11and Azariah the son of Hilkiah, the son of Meshullam, the son of Zadok, the son of Meraioth, the son of Ahitub, the ruler of the house of God, 12and Adaiah the son of Jeroham, the son of Pashhur, the son of Malchijah, and Maasai the son of Adiel, the son of Jahzerah, the son of Meshullam, the son of Meshillemith, the son of Immer, 13and their brothers, heads of their fathers' houses, a thousand and seven hundred and sixty, very able men for the work of the service of the house of God. 14And of the Levites: Shemaiah the son of Hasshub, the son of Azrikam, the son of Hashabiah, of the sons of Merari, 15and Bakbakkar, Heresh, and Galal, and Mattaniah the son of Mica, the son of Zichri, the son of Asaph, 16and Obadiah the son of Shemaiah, the son of Galal, the son of Jeduthun, and Berechiah the son of Asa, the son of Elkanah, who dwelt in the villages of the Netophathites. 17And the porters: Shallum, and Akkub, and Talmon, and Ahiman, and their brothers (Shallum was the chief), 18who formerly served in the king's gate eastward. They were the porters for the camp of the sons of Levi. 19And Shallum the son of Kore, the son of Ebiasaph, the son of Korah, and his brothers, of his father's house, the Korahites, were over the work of the service, keepers of the thresholds of the tent. And their fathers had been over the camp of Jehovah, keepers of the entry. 20And Phinehas the son of Eleazar was ruler over them in time past, and Jehovah was with him. 21Zechariah the son of Meshelemiah was porter of the door of the tent of meeting. 22All these who were chosen to be porters in the thresholds were two hundred and twelve. These were reckoned by genealogy in their villages, whom David and Samuel the seer ordained in their office of trust. 23So they and their sons had the oversight of the gates of the house of Jehovah, even the house of the tent, by wards. 24On the four sides were the porters, toward the east, west, north, and south. 25And their brothers, in their villages, were to come in every seven days from time to time to be with them; 26for the four chief porters, who were Levites, were in an office of trust, and were over the chambers and over the treasuries in the house of God. 27And they lodged round about the house of God, because the charge of it was upon them, and to them pertained the opening of it morning by morning. 28And certain of them had charge of the vessels of service, for by count were these brought in, and by count were these taken out. 29Some of them were also appointed over the furniture, and over all the vessels of the sanctuary, 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 prepared the confection of the spices. 31And Mattithiah, one of the Levites, who was the firstborn of Shallum the Korahite, had the office of trust over the things that were baked in pans. 32And some of their brothers, of the sons of the Kohathites, were over the showbread to prepare it every sabbath. 33And these are the singers, heads of fathers of the Levites, who dwelt in the chambers and were free from other service, for they were employed in their work day and night. 34These were heads of fathers of the Levites, throughout their generations, chief men; these dwelt at Jerusalem. 35And in Gibeon there dwelt the father of Gibeon, Jeiel, whose wife's name was Maacah, 36and his firstborn son Abdon, and Zur, and Kish, and Baal, and Ner, and Nadab, 37and Gedor, and Ahio, and Zechariah, and Mikloth. 38And Mikloth begot Shimeam. And they also dwelt with their brothers in Jerusalem, opposite their brothers. 39And Ner begot Kish, and Kish begot Saul, and Saul begot Jonathan, and Malchi-shua, and Abinadab, and Eshbaal. 40And the son of Jonathan was Merib-baal, and Merib-baal begot Micah. 41And the sons of Micah: Pithon, and Melech, and Tahrea, and Ahaz. 42And Ahaz begot Jarah, and Jarah 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 Azel had six sons, whose names are these: Azrikam, Bocheru, and Ishmael, and Sheariah, and Obadiah, and Hanan; these were the sons of Azel.
