I also found out that the Levites hadn't been given their portions, so they and the singers who did the work had gone back to their fields.
So I scolded the officials, asking, "Why is God's house being neglected?" I gathered them together and set them in their stations.
Then all Judah brought the tenth-part gifts of the grain, wine, and oil into the storehouses.
I appointed the priest Shelemiah, the scribe Zadok, and Pedaiah of the Levites to be in charge over the storehouses. I also appointed Hanan, Zaccur's son and Mattaniah's grandson, as their assistant. These men were considered trustworthy, and their task was to hand out shares to their colleagues.
Remember me, my God, concerning this. Don't erase my good deeds that I have done for my God's house and for its services.
