1 And all Israel were numbered by kindreds: and see, they be written in the Book of the Kings of Israel. And Judah were carried away to Babylon for their offenses. 2 And the old inhabiters that dwelt in their own possessions and cities were Israel, the priests, Levites and Nethinims. 3 But in Jerusalem dwelt of the children of Judah, of the children of Benjamin and of the children of Ephraim and Manasseh. 4 Uthai the son of Ammihud the son of Omri the son of Imri of the son of Bani of the children of Perez, the son of Judah. 5 And of Shiloni, Asaiah the eldest and his sons. 6 And of the sons of Zerah, Jeuel with their brethren, six hundred and ninety. 7 And of the sons of Benjamin: Sallu the son of Meshullam the son of Hodaviah, the son of Hassenuah, 8 and Ibneiah the son of Jeroham. And Elah the son of Uzzi, the son of Michri. And Meshullam the son of Shephatiah the son of Reuel the son of Ibnijah 9 with other their brethren in their kindreds, nine hundred fifty and five.

And them did David and Samuel the seer institute in their fidelity. 23 And their children had the oversight of the gates of the house of the LORD and of the house of the tabernacle, to keep them. 24 In four quarters were the keepers: toward the east, west, north and south. 25 And their brethren that were in the country came in their weeks as their course came about with them. 26 For the Levites were committed to be principal porters of fidelity. And they had the oversight of the vestries and treasures of the house of God, 27 and lay all night round about the house of God: because the keeping thereof pertained to them and to open it every morning.
28 And certain of them had the rule of the ministering vessels and brought them in and out by tale. 29 And of them were certain appointed to oversee the vessels and all holy ornaments, and of the flour, wine, oil, frankincense and sweet odours. 30 But certain of the sons of the priests were set to make sweet savours. 31 And Matiithiah, one of the Levites, the eldest son of Shallum the Korahite, had the oversight of the things that were baken in the frying pan. 32 And other of their brethren, the sons of Kohath, had the oversight of the shewbread, to prepare against all Sabbaths. 33 These are the singers - ancient heads among the Levites divided by chambers, for they had to do both day and night. 34 These were the ancient among the Levites in their generations. And these dwelt at Jerusalem.
