Then I set apart twelve of the leading priests, 1Sherebiah, Hashabiah, and with them ten of their brothers;
and I 2weighed out to them 3the silver, the gold and the utensils, the offering for the house of our God which the king and 4his counselors and his princes and all Israel present there had offered.
5Thus I weighed into their hands 650 talents of silver, and silver utensils worth 100 talents, and 100 gold talents,
and 20 gold bowls worth 1,000 darics, and two utensils of fine shiny bronze, precious as gold.
Then I said to them, "6You are holy to the LORD, and the 7utensils are holy; and the silver and the gold are a freewill offering to the LORD God of your fathers.
"Watch and keep them 8until you weigh them before the leading priests, the Levites and the heads of the fathers' households of Israel at Jerusalem, in the chambers of the house of the LORD."
So the priests and the Levites 9accepted the weighed out silver and gold and the utensils, to bring them to Jerusalem to the house of our God.
