1 Chronicles 9:17-2317The gatekeepers were Shallum, Akkub, Talmon, Ahiman, and their kinsmen (Shallum was the chief); 18until then they were ain the king’s gate on the east side as the gatekeepers of the camps of the Levites. 19Shallum the son of Kore, son of bEbiasaph, son of Korah, and his kinsmen of his fathers’ house, the cKorahites, were in charge of the work of the service, keepers of the thresholds of the tent, as their fathers had been in charge of the camp of the Lord, keepers of the entrance. 20And dPhinehas the son of Eleazar was the chief officer over them in time past; the Lord was with him. 21 eZechariah the son of Meshelemiah was gatekeeper at the entrance of the tent of meeting. 22All these, who were chosen as gatekeepers at the thresholds, were 212. They were enrolled by genealogies in their villages. fDavid and Samuel gthe seer established them in their office of trust. 23So they and their sons were in charge of the gates of the house of the Lord, that is, the house of the tent, as guards.
