1 Chronicles 24

Divisions of Levites

1Now the divisions of the
Lit sons
descendants of Aaron were these: b  the sons of Aaron were Nadab, Abihu, Eleazar and Ithamar.
2 c  But Nadab and Abihu died before their father and had no
Or children
sons. So Eleazar and Ithamar served as priests.
3David, with e  Zadok of the sons of Eleazar and Ahimelech of the sons of Ithamar, divided them according to their offices
Lit in their service
for their ministry.
4Since more chief men were found from the
Lit sons
descendants of Eleazar than the
Lit sons
descendants of Ithamar, they divided them thus: there were sixteen heads of fathers’ households of the
Lit sons
descendants of Eleazar and eight of the
Lit sons
descendants of Ithamar, according to their fathers’ households.
5 k  Thus they were divided by lot, the one as the other; for they were officers of the sanctuary and officers of God, both from the
Lit sons
descendants of Eleazar and the
Lit sons
descendants of Ithamar.
6Shemaiah, the son of Nethanel the scribe, from the Levites, recorded them in the presence of the king, the princes, Zadok the priest n  Ahimelech the son of Abiathar, and the heads of the fathers’ households of the priests and of the Levites; one father’s household taken for Eleazar and one taken for Ithamar.

7Now the first lot came out for Jehoiarib, the second for Jedaiah, 8the third for Harim, the fourth for Seorim, 9the fifth for Malchijah, the sixth for Mijamin, 10the seventh for Hakkoz, the eighth for o  Abijah, 11the ninth for Jeshua, the tenth for Shecaniah, 12the eleventh for Eliashib, the twelfth for Jakim, 13the thirteenth for Huppah, the fourteenth for Jeshebeab, 14the fifteenth for Bilgah, the sixteenth for Immer, 15the seventeenth for Hezir, the eighteenth for Happizzez, 16the nineteenth for Pethahiah, the twentieth for Jehezkel, 17the twenty-first for Jachin, the twenty-second for Gamul, 18the twenty-third for Delaiah, the twenty-fourth for Maaziah. 19 p  These were their offices for their ministry when they came in to the house of the  Lord according to the ordinance given to them through Aaron their father, just as the  Lord God of Israel had commanded him.
