1 David and the officers of the army also set apart some of the sons of Asaph, Heman, and Jeduthun, who were to prophesy accompanied by lyres, harps, and cymbals. This is the list of the men who performed their service: 2 From Asaph's sons: Zaccur, Joseph, Nethaniah, and Asarelah, sons of Asaph, under Asaph's authority, who prophesied under the authority of the king. 3 From Jeduthun: Jeduthun's sons: Gedaliah, Zeri, Jeshaiah, Shimei, Hashabiah, and Mattithiah-six-under the authority of their father Jeduthun, prophesying to the accompaniment of lyres, giving thanks and praise to the Lord. 4 From Heman: Heman's sons: Bukkiah, Mattaniah, Uzziel, Shebuel, Jerimoth, Hananiah, Hanani, Eliathah, Giddalti, Romamti-ezer, Joshbekashah, Mallothi, Hothir, and Mahazioth. 5 All these sons of Heman, the king's seer, were [given] by the promises of God to exalt him, for God had given Heman fourteen sons and three daughters. 6 All these men were under their own fathers' authority for the music in the Lord's temple, with cymbals, harps, and lyres for the service of God's temple. Asaph, Jeduthun, and Heman were under the king's authority. 7 Together with their relatives who were all trained and skillful in music for the Lord, they numbered 288. 8 They cast lots impartially for their duties, the young and old alike, the teacher along with the pupil. 9 The first lot for Asaph fell to Joseph, [his sons, and his brothers- 12] [to] Gedaliah the second: him, his brothers, and his sons- 12 10 the third [to] Zaccur, his sons, and his brothers- 12 11 the fourth to Izri, his sons, and his brothers- 12 12 the fifth [to] Nethaniah, his sons, and his brothers- 12 13 the sixth [to] Bukkiah, his sons, and his brothers- 12 14 the seventh [to] Jesarelah, his sons, and his brothers- 12 15 the eighth [to] Jeshaiah, his sons, and his brothers- 12 16 the ninth [to] Mattaniah, his sons, and his brothers- 12 17 the tenth [to] Shimei, his sons, and his brothers- 12 18 the eleventh [to] Azarel, his sons, and his brothers- 12 19 the twelfth to Hashabiah, his sons, and his brothers- 12 20 the thirteenth [to] Shubael, his sons, and his brothers- 12 21 the fourteenth [to] Mattithiah, his sons, and his brothers- 12 22 the fifteenth to Jeremoth, his sons, and his brothers- 12 23 the sixteenth to Hananiah, his sons, and his brothers- 12 24 the seventeenth to Joshbekashah, his sons, and his brothers- 12 25 the eighteenth to Hanani, his sons, and his brothers- 12 26 the nineteenth to Mallothi, his sons, and his brothers- 12 27 the twentieth to Eliathah, his sons, and his brothers- 12 28 the twenty-first to Hothir, his sons, and his brothers- 12 29 the twenty-second to Giddalti, his sons, and his brothers- 12 30 the twenty-third to Mahazioth, his sons, and his brothers- 12 31 and the twenty-fourth to Romamti-ezer, his sons, and his brothers- 12.

The sons and brothers of Hosah were 13 in all. 12 These divisions of the gatekeepers, under their leading men, had duties for ministering in the Lord's temple, just as their brothers did. 13 They cast lots according to their ancestral houses, young and old alike, for each gate. 14 The lot for the east [gate] fell to Shelemiah. They also cast lots for his son Zechariah, an insightful counselor, and his lot came out for the north [gate]. 15 Obed-edom's was the south [gate], and his sons' [lot] was the storehouses; 16 for Shuppim and Hosah it was the west [gate] and the gate of Shallecheth on the ascending highway. There were guards stationed at every watch. 17 There were six Levites each day on the east, four each day on the north, four each day on the south, and two pair at the storehouses. 18 As for the court on the west, there were four at the highway and two at the court. 19 Those were the divisions of the gatekeepers from the sons of the Korahites and Merarites. 20 From the Levites, Ahijah was in charge of the treasuries of God's temple and the treasuries for what had been dedicated. 21 From the sons of Ladan, who were the sons of the Gershonites through Ladan and were the heads of families belonging to Ladan the Gershonite: Jehieli. 22 The sons of Jehieli, Zetham and his brother Joel, were in charge of the treasuries of the Lord's temple. 23 From the Amramites, the Izharites, the Hebronites, and the Uzzielites: 24 Shebuel, a descendant of Moses' son Gershom, was the officer in charge of the treasuries. 25 His relative through Eliezer: his son Rehabiah, his son Jeshaiah, his son Joram, his son Zichri, and his son Shelomith. 26 This Shelomith and his brothers were in charge of all the treasuries for what had been dedicated by King David, by the heads of families who were the commanders of the thousands and of the hundreds, and by the army commanders. 27 They dedicated part of the plunder from their battles for the repair of the Lord's temple. 28 All that Samuel the seer, Saul son of Kish, Abner son of Ner, and Joab son of Zeruiah had dedicated, along with everything else that had been dedicated, were in the care of Shelomith and his brothers. 29 From the Izrahites: Chenaniah and his sons had the outside duties as officers and judges over Israel. 30 From the Hebronites: Hashabiah and his relatives, 1,700 capable men, had assigned duties in Israel west of the Jordan for all the work of the Lord and for the service of the king. 31 From the Hebronites: Jerijah was the head of the Hebronites, according to the genealogical records of his ancestors. In the fortieth year of David's reign a search was made, and strong, capable men were found among them at Jazer in Gilead. 32 There were among Jerijah's relatives, 2,700 capable men who were heads of families. King David appointed them over the Reubenites, the Gadites, and half the tribe of Manasseh as overseers in every matter relating to God and the king.
