The temple servants1 and the descendants of the servants of Solomon, 392
The following came up from the towns of Tel Melah, Tel Harsha, Kerub, Addon and Immer, but they could not show that their families were descended2 from Israel:
The descendants of Delaiah, Tobiah and Nekoda 652
And from among the priests: The descendants of Hobaiah, Hakkoz and Barzillai (a man who had married a daughter of Barzillai the Gileadite and was called by that name).
These searched for their family records, but they could not find them and so were excluded from the priesthood3 as unclean.
The governor ordered them not to eat any of the most sacred food4 until there was a priest ministering with the Urim and Thummim.5
The whole company numbered 42,360,
besides their 7,337 menservants and maidservants; and they also had 200 men and women singers.6
They had 736 horses,7 245 mules,
435 camels and 6,720 donkeys.
