69 According to their ability they gave to the treasury for this work 61,000 daricsa of gold, 5,000 minasb of silver and 100 priestly garments.
70 The priests, the Levites, the musicians, 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.
