and Azariah the chief priest, from the family of Zadok,1 answered, "Since the people began to bring their contributions to the temple of the LORD, we have had enough to eat and plenty to spare, because the LORD has blessed his people, and this great amount is left over."211
Hezekiah gave orders to prepare storerooms in the temple of the LORD, and this was done.
Then they faithfully brought in the contributions, tithes and dedicated gifts. Conaniah,3 a Levite, was in charge of these things, and his brother Shimei was next in rank.
Jehiel, Azaziah, Nahath, Asahel, Jerimoth, Jozabad,4 Eliel, Ismakiah, Mahath and Benaiah were supervisors under Conaniah and Shimei his brother, by appointment of King Hezekiah and Azariah the official in charge of the temple of God.
