1 Chronicles 24
The divisions of the sons of Aaron by lot into four and twenty orders.
1 Chronicles 24:1 Now [these are] the divisions of the sons of Aaron. The sons of Aaron; Nadab, and Abihu, Eleazar, and Ithamar. 1 Chronicles 24:2 But Nadab and Abihu died before their father, and had no children: therefore Eleazar and Ithamar executed the priests' office. 1 Chronicles 24:3 And David distributed them, both Zadok of the sons of Eleazar, and Ahimelech of the sons of Ithamar, according to their offices in their service. 1 Chronicles 24:4 And there were more chief men found of the sons of Eleazar than of the sons of Ithamar; and [thus] were they divided. Among the sons of Eleazar [there were] sixteen chief men of the house of [their] fathers, and eight among the sons of Ithamar according to the house of their fathers. 1 Chronicles 24:5 Thus were they divided by lot, one sort with another; for the governors of the sanctuary, and governors [of the house] of God, were of the sons of Eleazar, and of the sons of Ithamar. 1 Chronicles 24:6 And Shemaiah the son of Nethaneel the scribe, [one] of the Levites, wrote them before the king, and the princes, and Zadok the priest, and Ahimelech the son of Abiathar, and [before] the chief of the fathers of the priests and Levites: one principal household being taken for Eleazar, and [one] taken for Ithamar. 1 Chronicles 24:7 Now the first lot came forth to Jehoiarib, the second to Jedaiah, 1 Chronicles 24:8 The third to Harim, the fourth to Seorim, 1 Chronicles 24:9 The fifth to Malchijah, the sixth to Mijamin, 1 Chronicles 24:10 The seventh to Hakkoz, the eighth to Abijah, 1 Chronicles 24:11 The ninth to Jeshuah, the tenth to Shecaniah, 1 Chronicles 24:12 The eleventh to Eliashib, the twelfth to Jakim, 1 Chronicles 24:13 The thirteenth to Huppah, the fourteenth to Jeshebeab, 1 Chronicles 24:14 The fifteenth to Bilgah, the sixteenth to Immer, 1 Chronicles 24:15 The seventeenth to Hezer, the eighteenth to Aphses, 1 Chronicles 24:16 The nineteenth to Pethahiah, the twentieth to Jehezekel, 1 Chronicles 24:17 The one and twentieth to Jachin, the two and twentieth to Gamul, 1 Chronicles 24:18 The three and twentieth to Delaiah, the four and twentieth to Maaziah. 1 Chronicles 24:19 These [were] the orderings of them in their service to come into the house of the LORD, according to their manner, under Aaron their father, as the LORD God of Israel had commanded him.
1 Chronicles 24:20 And the rest of the sons of Levi [were these]: Of the sons of Amram; Shubael: of the sons of Shubael; Jehdeiah. 1 Chronicles 24:21 Concerning Rehabiah: of the sons of Rehabiah, the first [was] Isshiah. 1 Chronicles 24:22 Of the Izharites; Shelomoth: of the sons of Shelomoth; Jahath. 1 Chronicles 24:23 And the sons [of Hebron]; Jeriah [the first], Amariah the second, Jehaziel the third, Jekameam the fourth. 1 Chronicles 24:24 [Of] the sons of Uzziel; Michah: of the sons of Michah; Shamir. 1 Chronicles 24:25 The brother of Michah [was] Isshiah: of the sons of Isshiah; Zechariah. 1 Chronicles 24:26 The sons of Merari [were] Mahli, and Mushi: the sons of Jaaziah; Beno.
and the Merarites divided by lot.
1 Chronicles 24:27 The sons of Merari by Jaaziah; Beno, and Shoham, and Zaccur, and Ibri. 1 Chronicles 24:28 Of Mahli [came] Eleazar, who had no sons. 1 Chronicles 24:29 Concerning Kish: the son of Kish [was] Jerahmeel. 1 Chronicles 24:30 The sons also of Mushi; Mahli, and Eder, and Jerimoth. These [were] the sons of the Levites after the house of their fathers. 1 Chronicles 24:31 These likewise cast lots over against their brethren the sons of Aaron in the presence of David the king, and Zadok, and Ahimelech, and the chief of the fathers of the priests and Levites, even the principal fathers over against their younger brethren.
