1The divisions of the gatekeepers: Korahites: Meshelemiah son of Kore, of the sons of Asaph. 2Sons of Meshelemiah: Zechariah the firstborn, Jediael the second, Zebadiah the third, Jathniel the fourth, 3Elam the fifth, Jehohanan the sixth, Eliehoenai the seventh. 4Sons of Obed-edom: Shemaiah the first-born, Jehozabad the second, Joah the third, Sacar the fourth, Nethanel the fifth, 5Ammiel the sixth, Issachar the seventh, Peullethai the eighth—for God had blessed him. 6To his son Shemaiah were born sons who exercised authority in their clans because they were men of substance. 7The sons of Shemaiah: Othni, Rephael, Obed, Elzabad—his brothers, men of ability, were Elihu and Semachiah. 8All these, sons of Obed-edom; they and their sons and brothers, strong and able men for the service—62 of Obed-edom. 9Meshelemiah had sons and brothers, able men—18. 10Hosah of the Merarites had sons: Shimri the chief (he was not the first-born, but his father designated him chief), 11Hilkiah the second, Tebaliah the third, Zechariah the fourth. All the sons and brothers of Hosah—13.
12These are the divisions of the gatekeepers, by their chief men, [who worked in] shifts corresponding to their kinsmen, ministering in the House of the Lord. 13They cast lots, small and great alike, by clans, for each gate.
14The lot for the east [gate] fell to Shelemiah. Then they cast lots [for] Zechariah his son, a prudent counselor, and his lot came out to be the north [gate]. 15For Obed-edom, the south [gate], and for his sons, the vestibule. 16For Shuppim and for Hosah, the west [gate], with the Shallecheth gate on the ascending highway. Watch corresponded to watch: 17At the east—six Levites; at the north—four daily; at the south—four daily; at the vestibule—two by two; 18at the colonnade on the west—four at the causeway and two at the colonnade. 19These were the divisions of the gatekeepers of the sons of Korah and the sons of Merari.
20And the Levites: Ahijah over the treasuries of the House of God and the treasuries of the dedicated things. 21The sons of Ladan: the sons of the Gershonites belonging to Ladan; the chiefs of the clans of Ladan, the Gershonite—Jehieli. 22The sons of Jehieli: Zetham and Joel; his brother was over the treasuries of the House of the Lord.
23Of the Amramites, the Izharites, the Hebronites, the Uzzielites: 24Shebuel son of Gershom son of Moses was the chief officer over the treasuries. 25And his brothers: Eliezer, his son Rehabiah, his son Jeshaiah, his son Joram, his son Zichri, his son Shelomith— 26that Shelomith and his brothers were over all the treasuries of dedicated things that were dedicated by King David and the chiefs of the clans, and the officers of thousands and hundreds and the other army officers; 27they dedicated some of the booty of the wars to maintain the House of the Lord. 28All that Samuel the seer had dedicated, and Saul son of Kish, and Abner son of Ner, and Joab son of Zeruiah—or [what] any other man had dedicated, was under the charge of Shelomith and his brothers.
29The Izharites: Chenaniah and his sons were over Israel as clerks and magistrates for affairs outside [the sanctuary]. 30The Hebronites: Hashabiah and his brothers, capable men, 1,700, supervising Israel on the west side of the Jordan in all matters of the Lord and the service of the king. 31The Hebronites: Jeriah, the chief of the Hebronites—they were investigated in the fortieth year of David’s reign by clans of all their lines, and men of substance were found among them in Jazer-gilead. 32His brothers, able men, 2,700, chiefs of clans—David put them in charge of the Reubenites, the Gadites, and the half-tribe of Manasseh in all matters of God and matters of the king.
