Then I found out the people were not giving the Levites their shares. So the Levites and singers who served had gone back to their own farms.
I argued with the officers, saying, "Why haven't you taken care of the Temple?" Then I gathered the Levites and singers and put them back at their places.
All the people of Judah then brought to the storerooms a tenth of their crops, new wine, and olive oil.
I put these men in charge of the storerooms: Shelemiah the priest, Zadok the teacher, and Pedaiah a Levite. I made Hanan son of Zaccur, the son of Mattaniah, their helper. Everyone knew they were honest men. They gave out the portions that went to their relatives.
Remember me, my God, for this. Do not ignore my love for the Temple and its service.
