Since there were more chief men found among the sons of Eleazar [because of the misfortunes of Eli, and Saul's slaughter of the priests at Nob] than among the sons of Ithamar, they were divided thus: sixteen heads of fathers' houses of the sons of Eleazar and eight of the sons of Ithamar according to their fathers' houses.

As for the rest of the sons of Levi: of the sons of Amram: Shubael; of the sons of Shubael: Jehdeiah. Of Rehabiah: of the sons of Rehabiah: Isshiah the chief. Of the Izharites: Shelomoth; of the sons of Shelomoth: Jahath. The sons of Hebron: Jeriah the first, Amariah the second, Jahaziel the third, Jekameam the fourth. The son of Uzziel: Micah; of the sons of Micah: Shamir. The brother of Micah: Isshiah; of the sons of Isshiah: Zechariah. The sons of Merari: Mahli and Mushi. The son of Jaaziah: Beno. The sons of Merari: by Jaaziah: Beno, Shoham, Zaccur, and Ibri. Of Mahli: Eleazar, who had no sons. Of Kish: the son of Kish: Jerahmeel. The sons of Mushi: Mahli, Eder, and Jerimoth.
