1 Chronicles 26:1 For the courses of the doorkeepers: of the Korahites, Meshelemiah the son of Kore, of the sons of Asaph. 1 Chronicles 26:2 And Meshelemiah had sons: Zechariah the first-born, Jediael the second, Zebadiah the third, Jathniel the fourth, 1 Chronicles 26:3 Elam the fifth, Jehohanan the sixth, Eliehoenai the seventh. 1 Chronicles 26:4 And Obed-edom had sons: Shemaiah the first-born, Jehozabad the second, Joah the third, and Sacar the fourth, and Nethanel the fifth, 1 Chronicles 26:5 Ammiel the sixth, Issachar the seventh, Peullethai the eighth; for God blessed him. 1 Chronicles 26:6 Also unto Shemaiah his son were sons born, that ruled over the house of their father; for they were mighty men of valor. 1 Chronicles 26:7 The sons of Shemaiah: Othni, and Rephael, and Obed, Elzabad, whose brethren were valiant men, Elihu, and Semachiah. 1 Chronicles 26:8 All these were of the sons of Obed-edom: they and their sons and their brethren, able men in strength for the service; threescore and two of Obed-edom. 1 Chronicles 26:9 And Meshelemiah had sons and brethren, valiant men, eighteen. 1 Chronicles 26:10 Also Hosah, of the children of Merari, had sons: Shimri the chief, (for though he was not the first-born, yet his father made him chief), 1 Chronicles 26:11 Hilkiah the second, Tebaliah the third, Zechariah the fourth: all the sons and brethren of Hosah were thirteen. 1 Chronicles 26:12 Of these were the courses of the doorkeepers, even of the chief men, having offices like their brethren, to minister in the house of Jehovah.
The gates assigned by lot.
1 Chronicles 26:13 And they cast lots, as well the small as the great, according to their fathers' houses, for every gate. 1 Chronicles 26:14 And the lot eastward fell to Shelemiah. Then for Zechariah his son, a discreet counsellor, they cast lots; and his lot came out northward. 1 Chronicles 26:15 To Obed-edom southward; and to his sons the store-house. 1 Chronicles 26:16 To Shuppim and Hosah westward, by the gate of Shallecheth, at the causeway that goeth up, watch against watch. 1 Chronicles 26:17 Eastward were six Levites, northward four a day, southward four a day, and for the store-house two and two. 1 Chronicles 26:18 For Parbar westward, four at the causeway, and two at Parbar. 1 Chronicles 26:19 These were the courses of the doorkeepers; of the sons of the Korahites, and of the sons of Merari.

In the fortieth year of the reign of David they were sought for, and there were found among them mighty men of valor at Jazer of Gilead. 1 Chronicles 26:32 And his brethren, men of valor, were two thousand and seven hundred, heads of fathers' [houses], whom king David made overseers over the Reubenites, and the Gadites, and the half-tribe of the Manassites, for every matter pertaining to God, and for the affairs of the king.
