Nehemiah 71Now it came to pass, when the wall was built, and I had set up the doors, and the porters and the singers and the Levites were appointed, 2that I gave my brother Hanani, and Hananiah the governor of the castle, charge over Jerusalem, for he was a faithful man, and feared God above many. 3And I said to them, Let not the gates of Jerusalem be opened until the sun be hot, and while they stand on guard, let them shut the doors, and bar ye them. And appoint watchmen of the inhabitants of Jerusalem, everyone in his watch, and everyone to be opposite his house. 4Now the city was wide and large, but the people in it were few, and the houses were not built. 5And my God put into my heart to gather together the ranking men, and the rulers, and the people, that they might be reckoned by genealogy. And I found the book of the genealogy of those who came up at the first. And I found written therein: 6These are the sons of the province who went up out of the captivity of those who had been carried away, whom Nebuchadnezzar the king of Babylon had carried away, and who returned to Jerusalem and to Judah, everyone to his city, 7who came with Zerubbabel, Jeshua, Nehemiah, Azariah, Raamiah, Nahamani, Mordecai, Bilshan, Mispereth, Bigvai, Nehum, Baanah. The number of the men of the people of Israel: 8the sons of Parosh, two thousand a hundred and seventy-two; 9the sons of Shephatiah, three hundred seventy and two; 10the sons of Arah, six hundred fifty-two; 11the sons of Pahath-moab, of the sons of Jeshua and Joab, two thousand and eight hundred and eighteen; 12the sons of Elam, a thousand two hundred fifty-four; 13the sons of Zattu, eight hundred forty-five; 14the sons of Zaccai, seven hundred and sixty; 15the sons of Binnui, six hundred forty-eight; 16the sons of Bebai, six hundred twenty-eight; 17the sons of Azgad, two thousand three hundred twenty-two; 18the sons of Adonikam, six hundred sixty-seven; 19the sons of Bigvai, two thousand sixty-seven; 20the sons of Adin, six hundred fifty-five; 21the sons of Ater, of Hezekiah, ninety-eight; 22the sons of Hashum, three hundred twenty-eight; 23the sons of Bezai, three hundred twenty-four; 24the sons of Hariph, a hundred and twelve; 25the sons of Gibeon, ninety-five; 26the men of Bethlehem and Netophah, a hundred eighty-eight; 27the men of Anathoth, a hundred twenty-eight; 28the men of Beth-azmaveth, forty-two; 29the men of Kiriath-jearim, Chephirah, and Beeroth, seven hundred forty-three; 30the men of Ramah and Geba, six hundred twenty-one; 31the men of Michmas, a hundred and twenty-two; 32the men of Bethel and Ai, a hundred twenty-three; 33the men of the other Nebo, fifty-two; 34the sons of the other Elam, a thousand two hundred fifty-four; 35the sons of Harim, three hundred and twenty; 36the sons of Jericho, three hundred forty-five; 37the sons of Lod, Hadid, and Ono, seven hundred twenty-one; 38the sons of Senaah, three thousand nine hundred and thirty. 39The priests: the sons of Jedaiah, of the house of Jeshua, nine hundred seventy-three; 40the sons of Immer, a thousand fifty-two; 41the sons of Pashhur, a thousand two hundred forty-seven; 42the sons of Harim, a thousand and seventeen. 43The Levites: the sons of Jeshua, of Kadmiel, of the sons of Hodevah, seventy-four. 44The singers: the sons of Asaph, a hundred forty-eight. 45The porters: the sons of Shallum, the sons of Ater, the sons of Talmon, the sons of Akkub, the sons of Hatita, the sons of Shobai, a hundred thirty-eight. 46The Nethinim: the sons of Ziha, the sons of Hasupha, the sons of Tabbaoth, 47the sons of Keros, the sons of Sia, the sons of Padon, 48the sons of Lebana, the sons of Hagaba, the sons of Salmai, 49the sons of Hanan, the sons of Giddel, the sons of Gahar, 50the sons of Reaiah, the sons of Rezin, the sons of Nekoda, 51the sons of Gazzam, the sons of Uzza, the sons of Paseah. 52The sons of Besai, the sons of Meunim, the sons of Nephushesim, 53the sons of Bakbuk, the sons of Hakupha, the sons of Harhur, 54the sons of Bazlith, the sons of Mehida, the sons of Harsha, 55the sons of Barkos, the sons of Sisera, the sons of Temah, 56the sons of Neziah, the sons of Hatipha. 57The sons of Solomon's servants: the sons of Sotai, the sons of Sophereth, the sons of Perida, 58the sons of Jaala, the sons of Darkon, the sons of Giddel, 59the sons of Shephatiah, the sons of Hattil, the sons of Pochereth-hazzebaim, the sons of Amon. 60All the Nethinim and the sons of Solomon's servants, were three hundred ninety-two. 61And these were those who went up from Tel-melah, Tel-harsha, Cherub, Addon, and Immer, but they could not show their fathers' house, nor their seed, whether they were of Israel: 62The sons of Delaiah, the sons of Tobiah, the sons of Nekoda, six hundred forty-two. 63And of the priests: the sons of Hobaiah, the sons of Hakkoz, the sons of Barzillai, who took a wife of the daughters of Barzillai the Gileadite, and was called after their name. 64These sought their registration among those who were reckoned by genealogy, but it was not found. Therefore they were deemed polluted and put from the priesthood. 65And the governor said to them that they should not eat of the most holy things till there stood up a priest with Urim and Thummim. 66The whole assembly together was forty-two thousand three hundred and sixty, 67besides their men-servants and their maid-servants, of whom there were seven thousand three hundred thirty-seven. And they had two hundred forty-five singing men and singing women. 68Their horses were seven hundred thirty-six, their mules, two hundred forty-five, 69their camels, four hundred thirty-five, their donkeys, six thousand seven hundred and twenty. 70And some from among the heads of fathers gave to the work. The governor gave to the treasury a thousand darics of gold, fifty basins, five hundred and thirty priests' garments. 71And some of the heads of fathers gave into the treasury of the work twenty thousand darics of gold, and two thousand and two hundred pounds of silver. 72And that which the rest of the people gave was twenty thousand darics of gold, and two thousand pounds of silver, and sixty-seven priests' garments. 73So the priests, and the Levites, and the porters, and the singers, and some of the people, and the Nethinim, and all Israel, dwelt in their cities. And when the seventh month came, the sons of Israel were in their cities.
