1 Chronicles 26; 1 Chronicles 27

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.
