The Levites

1 When David was old and full of years, he made his son Solomon1 king over Israel.2 2 He also gathered together all the leaders of Israel, as well as the priests and Levites. 3 The Levites thirty years old or more3 were counted,4 and the total number of men was thirty-eight thousand.5 4 David said, "Of these, twenty-four thousand are to supervise6 the work7 of the temple of the LORD and six thousand are to be officials and judges.#cr 5 Four thousand are to be gatekeepers and four thousand are to praise the LORD with the musical instruments8 I have provided for that purpose."9 6 David divided10 the Levites into groups corresponding to the sons of Levi:11 Gershon, Kohath and Merari.
