1 Chronicles 26:1  (King James Version)
Concerning the divisions of the porters: Of the Korhites was Meshelemiah the son of Kore, of the sons of Asaph.
 


the divisions
There were four classes of these, each of which belonged to the four gates of the temple, which opened to the four cardinal points of heaven. The eastern gate fell to Shelemiah; the northern to Zechariah, (ver. 14;) the southern to Obed-edom, (ver. 15;) and the western to Shuppim and Hosah, (ver
16.) These several persons were captains of these
porter-bands, or door-keepers, at the different gates. There were probably a thousand men under each of these captains; as we find, from ch. 23:5 that their whole number was four thousand.* the porters.

Meshelemiah
[Shelemyhuw ,] Shelemiah, is merely an abbreviation of [Meshelemyh ,] Meshelemiah, by the aphresis of [Mm,] {mem.}
26:14

Shelemiah
Asaph.
This variation arises from the rejection of the word [Ab ,] {av,} "father," and the mutation
of [Ywd,] {yood,} into ['Aleph,] {aleph;} being written in the parallel passages [Ebycph ,] Ebiasaph, and here [Acph ,] Asaph. 6:37 9:19
