Now it happened, when the wall was built, and I had set up the doors, and the porters and the singers and the Levites were appointed,
that I gave my brother Hanani, and Hananyah the governor of the castle, charge over Yerushalayim; for he was a faithful man, and feared God above many.
I said to them, Don't let the gates of Yerushalayim be opened until the sun be hot; and while they stand [on guard], let them shut the doors, and bar you them: and appoint watches of the inhabitants of Yerushalayim, everyone in his watch, and everyone [to be] over against his house.
Now the city was wide and large; but the people were few therein, and the houses were not built.
My God put into my heart to gather together the nobles, and the rulers, and the people, that they might be reckoned by genealogy. I found the book of the genealogy of those who came up at the first, and I found written therein:
These are the children of the province, who went up out of the captivity of those who had been carried away, whom Nevukhadnetztzar the king of Bavel had carried away, and who returned to Yerushalayim and to Yehudah, everyone to his city;
who came with Zerubbavel, Yeshua, Nechemyah, `Azaryah, Ra`amyah, Nachamani, Mordekhai, Bilshan, Misperet, Bigvai, Nechum, Ba`anah. The number of the men of the people of Yisra'el:

All the temple servants, and the children of Shlomo's servants, were three hundred ninety-two.
These were those who went up from Tel-Melakh, Tel-Harsha, Keruv, Addon, and Immer; but they could not show their fathers' houses, nor their seed, whether they were of Yisra'el:
The children of Delayah, the children of Toviyah, the children of Nekoda, six hundred forty-two.
Of the Kohanim: the children of Havayah, the children of Hakkotz, the children of Barzillai, who took a wife of the daughters of Barzillai the Gil`adite, and was called after their name.
These sought their register [among] those who were reckoned by genealogy, but it was not found: therefore were they deemed polluted and put from the priesthood.
The governor said to them, that they should not eat of the most holy things, until there stood up a Kohen with Urim and Tummim.
The whole assembly together was forty-two thousand three hundred sixty,
besides their men-servants and their maid-servants, of whom there were seven thousand three hundred thirty-seven: and they had two hundred forty-five singing men and singing women.
Their horses were seven hundred thirty-six; their mules, two hundred forty-five;
[their] camels, four hundred thirty-five; [their] donkeys, six thousand seven hundred twenty.
Some from among the heads of fathers' [houses] gave to the work. The governor gave to the treasury one thousand darics of gold, fifty basins, and five hundred thirty Kohanim' garments.
Some of the heads of fathers' [houses] gave into the treasury of the work twenty thousand darics of gold, and two thousand two hundred minas of silver.
That which the rest of the people gave was twenty thousand darics of gold, and two thousand minas of silver, and sixty-seven Kohanim' garments.
So the Kohanim, and the Levites, and the porters, and the singers, and some of the people, and the temple servants, and all Yisra'el, lived in their cities. When the seventh month was come, the children of Yisra'el were in their cities.
