Ezra Sends for Levites

15 Now I assembled them at 1the river that runs to Ahava, where we camped for three days; and when I observed the people and the priests, I 2did not find any Levites * there.
17 I sent them to Iddo the leading man at the place Casiphia; and I told * * them what to say to Iddo and his brothers, 3the temple servants at the place Casiphia, that is, to bring ministers to us for the house of our God.
18 4According to the good hand of our God upon us they brought us a 5man of insight of the sons of Mahli, the son of Levi, the son of Israel, namely Sherebiah, and his sons and brothers, 18 * men;
19 and Hashabiah and Jeshaiah of the sons of Merari, with his brothers and their sons, 20 men;
20 and 220 * of 6the temple servants, whom David and the princes had given for the service of the Levites, all of them designated by name.
