View In My Bible
5 Ammiel the sixth, Issachar the seventh and Peullethai the eighth. (For God had blessed Obed-Edom.1) 6 His son Shemaiah also had sons, who were leaders in their father's family because they were very capable men. 7 The sons of Shemaiah: Othni, Rephael, Obed and Elzabad; his relatives Elihu and Semakiah were also able men. 8 All these were descendants of Obed-Edom; they and their sons and their relatives were capable men with the strength to do the work--descendants of Obed-Edom, 62 in all. 9 Meshelemiah had sons and relatives, who were able men--18 in all. 10 Hosah the Merarite had sons: Shimri the first (although he was not the firstborn, his father had appointed him the first),2 11 Hilkiah the second, Tabaliah the third and Zechariah the fourth. The sons and relatives of Hosah were 13 in all. 12 These divisions of the gatekeepers, through their chief men, had duties for ministering3 in the temple of the LORD, just as their relatives had. 13 Lots4 were cast for each gate, according to their families, young and old alike. 14 The lot for the East Gate5 fell to Shelemiah.a Then lots were cast for his son Zechariah,6 a wise counselor, and the lot for the North Gate fell to him. 15 The lot for the South Gate fell to Obed-Edom,7 and the lot for the storehouse fell to his sons.
