View In My Bible
1 The princes of the people lived in Yerushalayim: the rest of the people also cast lots, to bring one of ten to dwell in Yerushalayim the holy city, and nine parts in the [other] cities. 2 The people blessed all the men who willingly offered themselves to dwell in Yerushalayim. 3 Now these are the chiefs of the province who lived in Yerushalayim: but in the cities of Yehudah lived everyone in his possession in their cities, [to wit], Yisra'el, the Kohanim, and the Levites, and the temple servants, and the children of Shlomo's servants. 4 In Yerushalayim lived certain of the children of Yehudah, and of the children of Binyamin. Of the children of Yehudah: `Atayah the son of `Uzziyah, the son of Zekharyah, the son of Amaryah, the son of Shefatyah, the son of Mahalal'el, of the children of Peretz; 5 and Ma`aseyah the son of Barukh, the son of Kolchozeh, the son of Hazayah, the son of `Adayah, the son of Yoiariv, the son of Zekharyah, the son of the Shiloni. 6 All the sons of Peretz who lived in Yerushalayim were four hundred sixty-eight valiant men. 7 These are the sons of Binyamin: Sallu the son of Meshullam, the son of Yo`ed, the son of Pedayahu, the son of Kolayah, the son of Ma`aseyah, the son of 'Iti'el, the son of Yesha`yah. 8 After him Gabbai, Sallai, nine hundred twenty-eight. 9 Yo'el the son of Zikhri was their overseer; and Yehudah the son of Senu'ah was second over the city. 10 Of the Kohanim: Yedayah the son of Yoiariv, Yakhin, 11 Serayah the son of Hilkiyah, the son of Meshullam, the son of Tzadok, the son of Merayot, the son of Achituv, the ruler of the house of God, 12 and their brothers who did the work of the house, eight hundred twenty-two; and `Adayah the son of Yerocham, the son of Pelalyah, the son of Amtzi, the son of Zekharyah, the son of Pashchur, the son of Malkiyah, 13 and his brothers, chiefs of fathers' [houses], two hundred forty-two; and Amashsai the son of `Azar'el, the son of Achzai, the son of Meshillemot, the son of Immer, 14 and their brothers, mighty men of valor, one hundred twenty-eight; and their overseer was Zavdi'el, the son of Haggedolim. 15 Of the Levites: Shemayah the son of Hashshuv, the son of `Azrikam, the son of Hashavyah, the son of Bunni; 16 and Shabbetai and Yozavad, of the chiefs of the Levites, who had the oversight of the outward business of the house of God; 17 and Mattanyah the son of Mikha, the son of Zavdi, the son of Asaf, who was the chief to begin the thanksgiving in prayer, and Bakbukyah, the second among his brothers; and `Avda the son of Shammua, the son of Galal, the son of Yedutun. 18 All the Levites in the holy city were two hundred eighty-four. 19 Moreover the porters, `Akkuv, Talmon, and their brothers, who kept watch at the gates, were one hundred seventy-two. 20 The residue of Yisra'el, of the Kohanim, the Levites, were in all the cities of Yehudah, everyone in his inheritance. 21 But the temple servants lived in `Ofel: and Tzicha and Gishpa were over the temple servants. 22 The overseer also of the Levites at Yerushalayim was `Uzzi the son of Bani, the son of Hashavyah, the son of Mattanyah, the son of Mikha, of the sons of Asaf, the singers, over the business of the house of God. 23 For there was a mitzvah from the king concerning them, and a settled provision for the singers, as every day required. 24 Petachyah the son of Meshezav'el, of the children of Zerach the son of Yehudah, was at the king's hand in all matters concerning the people. 25 As for the villages, with their fields, some of the children of Yehudah lived in Kiryat-Arba and the towns of it, and in Divon and the towns of it, and in Yekavtze'el and the villages of it, 26 and in Yeshua, and in Moladah, and Beit-Pelet, 27 and in Hatzar-Shu`al, and in Be'er-Sheva and the towns of it, 28 and in Tziklag, and in Mekhonah and in the towns of it, 29 and in En-rimmon, and in Tzor`ah, and in Yarmut, 30 Zanoach, `Adullam, and their villages, Lakhish and the fields of it, `Azeka and the towns of it. So they encamped from Be'er-Sheva to the valley of Hinnom. 31 The children of Binyamin also [lived] from Geva [onward], at Mikhmash and Ayah, and at Beit-El and the towns of it, 32 at `Anatot, Nov, `Ananyah, 33 Hatzor, Ramah, Gittayim, 34 Hadid, Tzevo`im, Nevalat, 35 Lod, and Ono, the valley of craftsmen. 36 Of the Levites, certain courses in Yehudah [were joined] to Binyamin.
