1 Chronicles 25; 1 Chronicles 26; 1 Chronicles 27; John 9:1-23

1 David and the army officers set apart Asaph's family, Heman and Jeduthun, for service to prophesy accompanied by lyres, harps, and cymbals. This is the list of those who performed this special service: 2 From Asaph's family: Zaccur, Joseph, Nethaniah, and Asarelah. Asaph's family was under Asaph's direction and prophesied by order of the king. 3 From Jeduthun and his family: Gedaliah, Izri, Jeshaiah, Shimei, Hashabiah, and Mattithiah—six in all. They were under their father Jeduthun's direction, prophesying with the lyre and giving thanks and praise to the LORD. 4 From Heman and his family: Bukkiah, Mattaniah, Uzziel, Shebuel, Jerimoth, Hananiah, Hanani, Eliathah, Giddalti, Romamti-ezer, Joshbekashah, Mallothi, Hothir, and Mahazioth. 5 All these were the family of Heman the king's seer, according to God's promise to honor him. God gave Heman fourteen sons and three daughters. 6 They were all under their father's direction when singing in the LORD's temple with cymbals, harps, and lyres to provide service in God's temple, by order of the king. As for Asaph, Jeduthun, and Heman, 7 the number of themselves and their relatives, who were trained in singing to the LORD and who were all skillful, was 288. 8 They cast lots for their assigned duties, small as well as great, teacher and pupil alike. 9 The first lot fell for Asaph to Joseph; the second to Gedaliah, his relatives, and his family, 12; 10 the third to Zaccur, his family, and his relatives, 12; 11 the fourth to Izri, his family, and his relatives, 12; 12 the fifth to Nethaniah, his family, and his relatives, 12; 13 the sixth to Bukkiah, his family, and his relatives, 12; 14 the seventh to Jesarelah, his family, and his relatives, 12; 15 the eighth to Jeshaiah, his family, and his relatives, 12; 16 the ninth to Mattaniah, his family, and his relatives, 12; 17 the tenth to Shimei, his family, and his relatives, 12; 18 the eleventh to Uzziel, his family, and his relatives, 12; 19 the twelfth to Hashabiah, his family, and his relatives, 12; 20 the thirteenth to Shubael, his family, and his relatives, 12; 21 the fourteenth to Mattithiah, his family, and his relatives, 12; 22 the fifteenth to Jerimoth, his family, and his relatives, 12; 23 the sixteenth to Hananiah, his family, and his relatives, 12; 24 the seventeenth to Joshbekashah, his family, and his relatives, 12; 25 the eighteenth to Hanani, his family, and his relatives, 12; 26 the nineteenth to Mallothi, his family, and his relatives, 12; 27 the twentieth to Eliathah, his family, and his relatives, 12; 28 the twenty-first to Hothir, his family, and his relatives, 12; 29 the twenty-second to Giddalti, his family, and his relatives, 12; 30 the twenty-third to Mahazioth, his family, and his relatives, 12; 31 and the twenty-fourth to Romamti-ezer, his family, and his relatives, 12.
1 The divisions of the gatekeepers: from the Korahites: Meshelemiah, Kore's son, one of Ebiasaph's family. 2 Meshelemiah's family: Zechariah the oldest, Jediael the second, Zebadiah the third, Jathniel the fourth, 3 Elam the fifth, Jehohanan the sixth, and Eliehoenai the seventh. 4 Obed-edom's family: Shemaiah the oldest, Jehozabad the second, Joah the third, Sachar the fourth, Nethanel the fifth, 5 Ammiel the sixth, Issachar the seventh, and Peullethai the eighth. God truly blessed him. 6 To his son Shemaiah were born sons who ruled over their household, because they were valiant men. 7 Shemaiah's family: Othni, Rephael, Obed, Elzabad, and his relatives, Elihu and Semachiah, who were valiant men. 8 All these were members of Obed-edom's family, they, their sons, and their relatives. They were valiant and strong in their service, 62 men belonging to Obed-edom. 9 Meshelemiah's family and relatives, valiant men, numbered 18. 10 Hosah, one of Merari's family, also had a family: Shimri the first (though he wasn't the oldest, his father gave him that status), 11 Hilkiah the second, Tebaliah the third, and Zechariah the fourth. All of Hosah's family and relatives numbered 13. 12 These were the divisions of the gatekeepers with their leaders, who were responsible to minister in the LORD's temple, along with their relatives. 13 They cast lots for each gate in the same way, whether their household was small or large. 14 The lot for the East Gate fell to Shelemiah. They then cast lots for his son Zechariah, a wise counselor, and his lot indicated the North Gate. 15 Obed-edom was assigned the South Gate, and his sons were assigned the storehouses. 16 Hosah was assigned the West Gate, that is, the chamber gate on the upper road. The guards had the same task: 17 each day the East had six, the North four, and the South four, with two at each of the storehouses. 18 At the courtyard on the West, there were four at the road and two at the courtyard. 19 These were the divisions of the gatekeepers from Korah's family and Merari's family. 20 Their fellow Levites were in charge of the treasuries of God's temple and the treasuries of the dedicated gifts: 21 from Ladan's family, the family of the Gershonites belonging to Ladan, and the heads of the households belonging to Ladan the Gershonite: Jehieli. 22 Jehieli's family: Zetham and Joel his brother were in charge of the treasuries of the LORD's temple. 23 From the Amramites, Izharites, Hebronites, and Uzzielites: 24 Shebuel, a descendant of Gershom, Moses' son, was the chief officer in charge of the treasuries. 25 His relatives through Eliezer included his son Rehabiah, his son Jeshaiah, his son Joram, his son Zichri, and his son Shelomoth. 26 This Shelomoth and his relatives were in charge of all the treasuries of the gifts dedicated by King David, by the household leaders, by the commanders of the units of a thousand and a hundred, and by the army officers. 27 They had dedicated some of the valuable objects won in battle to repair the LORD's temple. 28 Everything that was dedicated by Samuel the seer, as well as by Saul, Kish's son; Abner, Ner's son; and Joab, Zeruiah's son—in fact, anything that had been dedicated—was under the supervision of Shelomoth and his relatives. 29 From the Izharites: Chenaniah and his family had responsibilities over Israel outside the temple as officials and judges. 30 From the Hebronites: Hashabiah and his relatives, 1,700 capable men, were put in charge of Israel west of the Jordan concerning all of the LORD's affairs and the king's service. 31 From the Hebronites: Jerijah was the head of the Hebronites according to the family records of their households. In the fortieth year of David's rule, a search was made and capable men were found among them in Jazer in Gilead. 32 Jerijah's relatives, capable men, were 2,700 heads of households. King David put them in charge of Reuben, Gad, and half the tribe of Manasseh concerning all of God's and the king's affairs.
1 This is the list of the Israelites, the heads of households, the commanders of units of a thousand and a hundred, and their officers. They served the king in every way their divisions required, and they were on duty for a month at a time through all the months of the year. Each division numbered 24,000. 2 In charge of the first division for the first month was Jashobeam, Zabdiel's son. His division numbered 24,000. 3 He was a Perezite and the head of all the army officers for the first month. 4 In charge of the division for the second month was Dodai the Ahohite. His division numbered 24,000. 5 The third army commander for the third month was Benaiah the chief priest Jehoiada's son. His division numbered 24,000. 6 This Benaiah was a warrior of the Thirty and in command of the Thirty. In command of his division was his son Ammizabad. 7 The fourth for the fourth month was Asahel, Joab's brother, and after him his son Zebadiah. His division numbered 24,000. 8 The fifth for the fifth month was the commander Shammoth the Zerahite. His division numbered 24,000. 9 The sixth for the sixth month was Ira the Tekoite Ikkesh's son. His division numbered 24,000. 10 The seventh for the seventh month was Helez the Pelonite from Ephraim's family. His division numbered 24,000. 11 The eighth for the eighth month was Sibbecai the Hushathite from the Zerahites. His division numbered 24,000. 12 The ninth for the ninth month was Abiezer of Annathoth from the Benjaminites. His division numbered 24,000. 13 The tenth for the tenth month was Maharai the Netophathite from the Zerahites. His division numbered 24,000. 14 The eleventh for the eleventh month was Benaiah the Pirathonite from Ephraim's family. His division numbered 24,000. 15 The twelfth for the twelfth month was Heldai the Netophathite from Othniel. His division numbered 24,000. 16 In charge of the tribes of Israel: for the Reubenites—the leader was Eliezer, Zichri's son; for the Simeonites—Shephatiah, Maacah's son; 17 for the Levites—Hashabiah, Kemuel's son; for Aaron—Zadok; 18 for Judah—Eliab, one of David's relatives; for Issachar—Omri, Michael's son; 19 for Zebulun—Ishmaiah, Obadiah's son; for Naphtali—Jerimoth, Azriel's son; 20 for the Ephraimites—Hoshea, Azaziah's son; for half the tribe of Manasseh—Joel, Pedaiah's son; 21 for half the tribe of Manasseh in Gilead—Iddo, Zechariah's son; for Benjamin—Jaasiel, Abner's son; 22 for Dan—Azarel, Jeroham's son. These were the leaders of the tribes of Israel. 23 But David didn't count those younger than 20 years of age, because the LORD had promised to make Israel as numerous as the stars in the sky. 24 Joab, Zeruiah's son, began to count them, but he never finished. Since Israel experienced wrath because of this, the number wasn't entered into the official records of King David. 25 In charge of the king's treasuries—Azmaveth, Adiel's son; in charge of the treasuries in the country, cities, villages, and towers—Jonathan, Uzziah's son; 26 in charge of agricultural workers cultivating the fertile land—Ezri, Chelub's son; 27 in charge of the vineyards—Shimei the Ramathite; in charge of the vineyard's produce for the wine cellars—Zabdi the Shiphmite; 28 in charge of the olive and sycamore trees in the western foothills—Baal-hanan the Gederite; in charge of the stores of oil—Joash; 29 in charge of the cattle that grazed in Sharon—Shitrai the Sharonite; in charge of the cattle in the valleys—Shaphat, Adlai's son; 30 in charge of the camels—Obil the Ishmaelite; in charge of the female donkeys—Jehdeiah the Meronothite; 31 in charge of the flocks of sheep and goats—Jaziz the Hagrite. All these were stewards of King David's property. 32 Jonathan, David's uncle, was a counselor, a man of understanding, and a scribe. Jehiel, Hachmoni's son, took care of the king's sons. 33 Ahithophel was the king's counselor, and Hushai the Archite was the king's political advisor. 34 After Ahithophel came Benaiah's son Jehoiada, and Abiathar. Joab was commander of the king's army.
1 As Jesus walked along, he saw a man who was blind from birth. 2 Jesus' disciples asked, "Rabbi, who sinned so that he was born blind, this man or his parents?" 3 Jesus answered, "Neither he nor his parents. This happened so that God's mighty works might be displayed in him. 4 While it's daytime, we must do the works of him who sent me. Night is coming when no one can work. 5 While I am in the world, I am the light of the world." 6 After he said this, he spit on the ground, made mud with the saliva, and smeared the mud on the man's eyes. 7 Jesus said to him, "Go, wash in the pool of Siloam" (this word means sent). So the man went away and washed. When he returned, he could see. 8 The man's neighbors and those who used to see him when he was a beggar said, "Isn't this the man who used to sit and beg?" 9 Some said, "It is," and others said, "No, it's someone who looks like him." But the man said, "Yes, it's me!" 10 So they asked him, "How are you now able to see?" 11 He answered, "The man they call Jesus made mud, smeared it on my eyes, and said, ‘Go to the Pool of Siloam and wash.' So I went and washed, and then I could see." 12 They asked, "Where is this man?" He replied, "I don't know." 13 Then they led the man who had been born blind to the Pharisees. 14 Now Jesus made the mud and smeared it on the man's eyes on a Sabbath day. 15 So Pharisees also asked him how he was able to see. The man told them, "He put mud on my eyes, I washed, and now I see." 16 Some Pharisees said, "This man isn't from God, because he breaks the Sabbath law." Others said, "How can a sinner do miraculous signs like these?" So they were divided. 17 Some of the Pharisees questioned the man who had been born blind again: "What do you have to say about him, since he healed your eyes?" He replied, "He's a prophet." 18 The Jewish leaders didn't believe the man had been blind and received his sight until they called for his parents. 19 The Jewish leaders asked them, "Is this your son? Are you saying he was born blind? How can he now see?" 20 His parents answered, "We know he is our son. We know he was born blind. 21 But we don't know how he now sees, and we don't know who healed his eyes. Ask him. He's old enough to speak for himself." 22 His parents said this because they feared the Jewish authorities. This is because the Jewish authorities had already decided that whoever confessed Jesus to be the Christ would be expelled from the synagogue. 23 That's why his parents said, "He's old enough. Ask him."
