1 Chronicles 24

Divisions of Levites

Now the divisions of the
Lit sons
descendants of Aaron were these: b the sons of Aaron were Nadab, Abihu, Eleazar and Ithamar.
c But Nadab and Abihu died before their father and had no
Or children
sons. So Eleazar and Ithamar served as priests.
David, 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.
Since 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.
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.
Shemaiah, 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.

Now the first lot came out for Jehoiarib, the second for Jedaiah, the third for Harim, the fourth for Seorim, the fifth for Malchijah, the sixth for Mijamin, 10 the seventh for Hakkoz, the eighth for o Abijah, 11 the ninth for Jeshua, the tenth for Shecaniah, 12 the eleventh for Eliashib, the twelfth for Jakim, 13 the thirteenth for Huppah, the fourteenth for Jeshebeab, 14 the fifteenth for Bilgah, the sixteenth for Immer, 15 the seventeenth for Hezir, the eighteenth for Happizzez, 16 the nineteenth for Pethahiah, the twentieth for Jehezkel, 17 the twenty-first for Jachin, the twenty-second for Gamul, 18 the 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.

20 Now for the rest of the sons of Levi: of the sons of Amram
