Time Passes; Heads of Provinces

1 Now 1the leaders of the people lived in Jerusalem, but the rest of the people 2cast lots to bring one out of ten to live in Jerusalem, 3the holy city, while nine-tenths remained in the other cities. 2 And the people blessed all the men who 4volunteered to live in Jerusalem. 3 5Now these are the heads of the provinces who lived in Jerusalem, but in the cities of Judah 6each lived on his own property in their cities -the aIsraelites, the priests, the Levites, the b7temple servants and the c8descendants of Solomon's servants. 4 Some of the sons of Judah and some of the sons of Benjamin lived in Jerusalem. From the sons of Judah : Athaiah the son of Uzziah, the son of Zechariah, the son of Amariah, the son of Shephatiah, the son of Mahalalel, of the sons of Perez ; 5 and Maaseiah the son of Baruch, the son of Col-hozeh, the son of Hazaiah, the son of Adaiah, the son of Joiarib, the son of Zechariah, the son of the Shilonite. 6 All the sons of Perez who lived in Jerusalem were 468 able men. 7 Now these are the sons of Benjamin : Sallu the son of Meshullam, the son of Joed, the son of Pedaiah, the son of Kolaiah, the son of Maaseiah, the son of Ithiel, the son of Jeshaiah ; 8 and after him Gabbai and Sallai, 928 . 9 Joel the son of Zichri was their overseer, and Judah the son of Hassenuah was second din command of the city. 10 From the priests : Jedaiah the son of Joiarib, Jachin, 11 Seraiah the son of Hilkiah, the son of Meshullam, the son of Zadok, the son of Meraioth, the son of Ahitub, the leader of the house of God, 12 and their ekinsmen who performed the work of the ftemple, 822 ; and Adaiah the son of Jeroham, the son of Pelaliah, the son of Amzi, the son of Zechariah, the son of Pashhur, the son of Malchijah, 13 and his kinsmen, heads of fathers' households, 242 ; and Amashsai the son of Azarel, the son of Ahzai, the son of Meshillemoth, the son of Immer, 14 and their brothers, valiant warriors, 128 . And their overseer was Zabdiel, the son of gHaggedolim. 15 Now from the Levites : Shemaiah the son of Hasshub, the son of Azrikam, the son of Hashabiah, the son of Bunni ; 16 and Shabbethai and Jozabad, from the hleaders of the Levites, who were iin charge of 9the outside work of the house of God ; 17 and Mattaniah the son of Mica, the son of jZabdi, the son of Asaph, who was the kleader in beginning the thanksgiving at prayer, and Bakbukiah, the second among his brethren ; and lAbda the son of mShammua, the son of Galal, the son of Jeduthun. 18 All the Levites in 10the holy city were 284 . 19 Also the gatekeepers, Akkub, Talmon and their brethren who kept watch at the gates, were 172 .

Outside Jerusalem

20 The rest of Israel, of the priests and of the Levites, were in all the cities of Judah, each 11on his own inheritance. 21 But 12the temple servants were living in Ophel, and Ziha and Gishpa were nin charge of the temple servants. 22 Now 13the overseer of the Levites in Jerusalem was Uzzi the son of Bani, the son of Hashabiah, the son of Mattaniah, the son of Mica, from the sons of Asaph, who were the singers for the oservice of the house of God. 23 14For there was a commandment from the king concerning them and a firm regulation for the song leaders 15day by day. 24 Pethahiah the son of Meshezabel, of the sons 16of Zerah the son of Judah, was the 17king's prepresentative in all matters concerning the people.
