1 Chronicles 26
The divisions of the porters.
1 Chronicles 26:1 And the divisions of the porters: of the Corites Meselemia, the son of Core, of the sons of Asaph. 1 Chronicles 26:2 The sons of Meselemia: Zacharias the firstborn, Jadihel the second, Zabadias the third, Jathanael the fourth, 1 Chronicles 26:3 Elam the fifth, Johanan the sixth, Elioenai the seventh. 1 Chronicles 26:4 And the sons of Obededom, Semeias the firstborn, Jozabad the second, Joaha the third, Sachar the fourth, Nathanael the fifth, 1 Chronicles 26:5 Ammiel the sixth, Issachar the seventh, Phollathi the eighth: for the Lord had blessed him. 1 Chronicles 26:6 And to Semei his son were born sons, heads of their families: for they were men of great valour. 1 Chronicles 26:7 The sons then of Semeias were Othni, and Raphael, and Obed, Elizabad, and his brethren most valiant men: and Eliu, and Samachias. 1 Chronicles 26:8 All these of the sons of Obededom: they, and their sons, and their brethren most able men for service, sixty-two of Obededom. 1 Chronicles 26:9 And the sons of Meselemia, and their brethren strong men, were eighteen. 1 Chronicles 26:10 And of Hosa, that is, of the sons of Merari: Semri the chief, (for he had not a firstborn, and therefore his father made him chief.) 1 Chronicles 26:11 Helcias the second, Tabelias the third, Zacharias the fourth: all these the sons, and the brethren of Hosa, were thirteen. 1 Chronicles 26:12 Among these were the divisions of the porters, so that the chiefs of the wards, as well as their brethren, always ministered in the house of the Lord.
The gates assigned by lot.
1 Chronicles 26:13 And they cast lots equally, both little and great, by their families for every one of the gates. 1 Chronicles 26:14 And the lot of the east fell to Selemias. But to his son Zacharias, a very wise and learned man, the north gate fell by lot. 1 Chronicles 26:15 And to Obededom and his sons that towards the south: in which part of the house was the council of the ancients. 1 Chronicles 26:16 To Sephim, and Hosa towards the west, by the gate which leadeth to the way of the ascent: ward against ward. 1 Chronicles 26:17 Now towards the east were six Levites: and towards the north four a day: and towards the south likewise four a day: and where the council was, two and two. 1 Chronicles 26:18 In the cells also of the porters toward the west four in the way: and two at every cell. 1 Chronicles 26:19 These are the divisions of the porters of the sons of Core, and of Merari.
The Levites that had charge of the treasures.
1 Chronicles 26:20 Now Achias was over the treasures of the house of God, and the holy vessels. 1 Chronicles 26:21 The sons of Ledan, the sons of Gersonni: of Ledan were heads of the families, of Ledan, and Gersonni, Jehieli. 1 Chronicles 26:22 The sons of Jehieli: Zathan and Joel, his brethren over the treasures of the house of the Lord, 1 Chronicles 26:23 With the Amramites, and Isaarites, and Hebronites, and Ozielites. 1 Chronicles 26:24 And Subael the son of Gersom, the son of Moses, was chief over the treasures. 1 Chronicles 26:25 His brethren also, Eliezer, whose son Rohobia, and his son Isaias, and his son Joram, and his son Zechri, and his son Selemith. 1 Chronicles 26:26 Which Selemith and his brethren were over the treasures of the holy things, which king David, and the heads of families, and the captains over thousands and over hundreds, and the captains of the host had dedicated, 1 Chronicles 26:27 Out of the wars, and the spoils won in battles, which they had consecrated to the building and furniture of the temple of the Lord. 1 Chronicles 26:28 And all these things that Samuel the seer and Saul the son of Cis, and Abner the son of Ner, and Joab the son of Sarvia had sanctified: and whosoever had sanctified those things, they were under the hand of Selemith and his brethren.
Officers and judges.
1 Chronicles 26:29 But Chonenias and his sons were over the Isaarites, for the business abroad over Israel to teach them and judge them. 1 Chronicles 26:30 And of the Hebronites Hasabias, and his brethren most able men, a thousand seven hundred had the charge over Israel beyond the Jordan westward, in all the works of the Lord, and for the service of the king. 1 Chronicles 26:31 And the chief of the Hebronites was Jeria according to their families and kindreds. In the fortieth year of the reign of David they were numbered, and there were found most valiant men in Jazer Galaad, 1 Chronicles 26:32 And his brethren of stronger age, two thousand seven hundred chiefs of families. And king David made them rulers over the Rubenites and the Gadites, and the half tribe of Manasses, for all the service of God, and the king.
