59 Another group returned to Jerusalem at this time from the towns of Tel-melah, Tel-harsha, Kerub, Addan, and Immer. However, they could not prove that they or their families were descendants of Israel. 59 The following came up from the towns of Tel Melah, Tel Harsha, Kerub, Addon and Immer, but they could not show that their families were descended from Israel:
60 This group consisted of the families of Delaiah, Tobiah, and Nekoda -- a total of 652 people. 60 The descendants of Delaiah, Tobiah and Nekoda 652
61 Three families of priests -- Hobaiah, Hakkoz, and Barzillai -- also returned to Jerusalem. (This Barzillai had married a woman who was a descendant of Barzillai of Gilead, and he had taken her family name.) 61 And from among the priests: The descendants of Hobaiah, Hakkoz and Barzillai (a man who had married a daughter of Barzillai the Gileadite and was called by that name).
62 But they had lost their genealogical records, so they were not allowed to serve as priests. 62 These searched for their family records, but they could not find them and so were excluded from the priesthood as unclean.
63 The governor would not even let them eat the priests' share of food from the sacrifices until there was a priest who could consult the LORD about the matter by means of sacred lots. 63 The governor ordered them not to eat any of the most sacred food until there was a priest ministering with the Urim and Thummim.
64 So a total of 42,360 people returned to Judah, 64 The whole company numbered 42,360,
65 in addition to 7,337 servants and 200 singers, both men and women. 65 besides their 7,337 menservants and maidservants; and they also had 200 men and women singers.
66 They took with them 736 horses, 245 mules, 66 They had 736 horses, 245 mules,
67 435 camels, and 6,720 donkeys. 67 435 camels and 6,720 donkeys.
68 When they arrived at the Temple of the LORD in Jerusalem, some of the family leaders gave generously toward the rebuilding of God's Temple on its original site, 68 When they arrived at the house of the LORD in Jerusalem, some of the heads of the families gave freewill offerings toward the rebuilding of the house of God on its site.
69 and each leader gave as much as he could. The total of their gifts came to 61,000 gold coins, 6,250 pounds of silver, and 100 robes for the priests. 69 According to their ability they gave to the treasury for this work 61,000 drachmas of gold, 5,000 minas of silver and 100 priestly garments.
70 So the priests, the Levites, the singers, the gatekeepers, the Temple servants, and some of the common people settled in villages near Jerusalem. The rest of the people returned to the other towns of Judah from which they had come. 70 The priests, the Levites, the singers, the gatekeepers and the temple servants settled in their own towns, along with some of the other people, and the rest of the Israelites settled in their towns.
