1 Chronicles 26
Young's Literal Translation

The Divisions of the Gatekeepers

1For the courses of the gatekeepers: of the Korhites is Meshelemiah son of Kore, of the sons of Asaph; 2and to Meshelemiah are sons, Zechariah the first-born, Jediael the second, Zebadiah the third, Jathniel the fourth, 3Elam the fifth, Jehohanan the sixth, Elioenai the seventh. 4And to Obed-Edom are sons, Shemaiah the first-born, Jehozabad the second, Joah the third, and Sacar the fourth, and Nethaneel the fifth, 5Ammiel the sixth, Issachar the seventh, Peullethai the eighth, for God hath blessed him. 6And to Shemaiah his son have sons been born, who are ruling throughout the house of their father, for they are mighty of valour. 7Sons of Shemaiah are Othni, and Rephael, and Obed, Elzabad; his brethren are sons of valour, Elihu and Semachiah, 8all these are of the sons of Obed-Edom; they, and their sons, and their brethren, men of valour with might for service, are sixty and two of Obed-Edom. 9And to Meshelemiah are sons and brethren, sons of valour, eighteen; 10and to Hosah, of the sons of Merari, are sons: Shimri the head (though he was not first-born, yet his father setteth him for head), 11Hilkiah the second, Tebaliah the third, Zechariah the fourth; all the sons and brethren of Hosah are thirteen.

12According to these are the courses of the gatekeepers; to the heads of the mighty ones are charges over-against their brethren, to minister in the house of Jehovah, 13and they cause to fall lots, as well the small as the great, according to the house of their fathers, for gate and gate. 14And the lot falleth eastward to Shelemiah; and for Zechariah his son -- a counsellor with understanding -- they cause to fall lots, and his lot goeth out northward: 15to Obed-Edom southward, and to his sons, the house of the gatherings; 16to Shuppim and to Hosah to the west, with the gate Shallecheth, in the highway, the ascent, charge over-against charge; 17to the east the Levites are six; to the north daily four, to the south daily four, and to the gatherings two by two, 18at Parbar, to the west, are four at the highway, two at Parbar. 19These are the courses of the gatekeepers, of the sons of the Korhite, and of the sons of Merari.

The Treasurers

20And of the Levites, Ahijah is over the treasures of the house of God, even for the treasures of the holy things. 21Sons of Laadan: sons of the Gershonite, of Laadan, heads of the fathers of Laadan the Gershonite: Jehieli.

22Sons of Jehieli: Zetham, and Joel his brother, over the treasures of the house of Jehovah, 23for the Amramite, for the Izharite, for the Hebronite, for the Uzzielite. 24And Shebuel son of Gershom, son of Moses, is president over the treasures. 25And his brethren, of Eliezer, are Rehabiah his son, and Jeshaiah his son, and Joram his son, and Zichri his son, and Shelomith his son. 26This Shelomith and his brethren are over all the treasures of the holy things, that David the king, and heads of the fathers, even heads of thousands, and of hundreds, and heads of the host, sanctified; 27from the battles, even from the spoil they sanctified to strengthen the house of Jehovah; 28and all that Samuel the seer, and Saul son of Kish, and Abner son of Ner, and Joab son of Zeruiah sanctified, every one sanctifying any thing -- it is by the side of Shelomith and his brethren.

Officers and Judges

29Of the Izharite, Chenaniah and his sons are for the outward work over Israel, for officers and for judges. 30Of the Hebronite, Hashabiah and his brethren, sons of valour, a thousand and seven hundred, are over the inspection of Israel, beyond the Jordan westward, for all the work of Jehovah, and for the service of the king. 31Of the Hebronite, Jerijah is the head, of the Hebronite, according to his generations, for the fathers -- in the fortieth year of the reign of David they have been sought out, and there are found among them mighty ones of valour, in Jazer of Gilead -- 32and his brethren, sons of valour, two thousand and seven hundred, are heads of the fathers, and king David appointeth them over the Reubenite, and the Gadite, and the half of the tribe of Manasseh, for every matter of God and matter of the king.
