And that we would leave the seventh year, and the exaction of every hand. 32 And we made ordinances for ourselves, to give the third part of a sicle every year for the work of the house of our God, 33 For the loaves of proposition, and for the continual sacrifice, and for a continual holocaust on the sabbaths, on the new moons, on the set feasts, and for the holy things, and for the sin offering: that atonement might be made for Israel, and for every use of the house of our God. 34 And we cast lots among the priests, and the Levites, and the people for the offering of wood, that it might be brought into the house of our God by the houses of our fathers at set times, from year to year: to burn upon the altar of the Lord our God, as it is written in the law of Moses: 35 And that we would bring the firstfruits of our land, and the firstfruits of all fruit of every tree, from year to year, in the house of our Lord. 36 And the firstborn of our sons, and of our cattle, as it is written in the law, and the firstlings of our oxen, and of our sheep, to be offered in the house of our God, to the priests who minister in the house of our God. 37 And that we would bring the firstfruits of our meats, and of our libations, and the fruit of every tree, of the vintage also and of oil to the priests, to the storehouse of our God, and the tithes of our ground to the Levites. The Levites also shall receive the tithes of our works out of all the cities. 38 And the priest the son of Aaron shall be with the Levites in the tithes of the Levites, and the Levites shall offer the tithe of their tithes in the house of our God, to the storeroom into the treasure house. 39 For the children of Israel and the children of Levi shall carry to the treasury the firstfruits of corn, of wine, and of oil: and the sanctified vessels shall be there, and the priests, and the singing men, and the porters, and ministers, and we will not forsake the house of our God.
1 And the princes of the people dwelt at Jerusalem: but the rest of the people cast lots, to take one part in ten to dwell in Jerusalem the holy city, and nine parts in the other cities. 2 And the people blessed all the men that willingly offered themselves to dwell in Jerusalem. 3 These therefore are the chief men of the province, who dwelt in Jerusalem, and in the cities of Juda. And every one dwelt in his possession, in their cities: Israel, the priests, the Levites, the Nathinites, and the children of the servants of Solomon. 4 And in Jerusalem there dwelt some of the children of Juda, and some of the children of Benjamin: of the children of Juda, Athaias the son of Aziam, the son of Zacharias, the son of Amarias, the son of Saphatias, the son of Malaleel: of the sons of Phares, 5 Maasia the son of Baruch, the son of Cholhoza, the son of Hazia, the son of Adaia, the son of Joiarib, the son of Zacharias, the son of the Silonite: 6 All these the sons of Phares, who dwelt in Jerusalem, were four hundred sixty-eight valiant men. 7 And these are the children of Benjamin: Sellum the son of Mosollam, the son of Joed, the son of Phadaia, the son of Colaia, the son of Masia, the son of Etheel, the son of Isaia. 8 And after him Gebbai, Sellai, nine hundred twenty-eight. 9 And Joel the son of Zechri their ruler, and Judas the son of Senua was second over the city. 10 And of the priests Idaia the son of Joarib, Jachin, 11 Saraia the son of Helcias, the son of Mosollam, the son of Sadoc, the son of Meraioth, the son of Achitob the prince of the house of God, 12 And their brethren that do the works of the temple: eight hundred twenty-two. And Adaia the son of Jeroham, the son of Phelelia, the son of Amsi, the son of Zacharias, the son of Pheshur, the son of Melchias, 13 And his brethren the chiefs of the fathers: two hundred forty-two. And Amassai the son of Azreel, the son of Ahazi, the son of Mosollamoth, the son of Emmer, 14 And their brethren who were very mighty, a hundred twenty-eight: and their ruler Zabdiel son of the mighty. 15 And of the Levites Semeia the son of Hasub, the son of Azaricam, the son of Hasabia, the son of Boni, 16 And Sabathai and Jozabed, who were over all the outward business of the house of God, of the princes of the Levites, 17 And Mathania the son of Micha, the son of Zebedei, the son of Asaph, was the principal man to praise, and to give glory in prayer, and Becbecia, the second, one of his brethren, and Abda the son of Samua, the son of Galal, the son of Idithun. 18 All the Levites in the holy city were two hundred eighty-four. 19 And the porters, Accub, Telmon, and their brethren, who kept the doors: a hundred seventy-two. 20 And the rest of Israel, the priests and the Levites were in all the cities of Juda, every man in his possession. 21 And the Nathinites, that dwelt in Ophel, and Siaha, and Gaspha of the Nathinites. 22 And the overseer of the Levites in Jerusalem, was Azzi the son of Bani, the son of Hasabia, the son of Mathania, the son of Micha. Of the sons of Asaph, were the singing men in the ministry of the house of God. 23 For the king’s commandment was concerning them, and an order among the singing men day by day. 24 And Phathahia the son of Mesezebel of the children of Zara the son of Juda was at the hand of the king, in all matters concerning the people, 25 And in the houses through all their countries. Of the children of Juda some dwelt at Cariath-Arbe, and in the villages thereof: and at Dibon, and in the villages thereof: and at Cabseel, and in the villages thereof. 26 And at Jesue, and at Molada, and at Bethphaleth, 27 And at Hasersuel, and at Bersabee, and in the villages thereof, 28 And at Siceleg, and at Mochona, and in the villages thereof, 29 And at Remmon, and at Saraa, and at Jerimuth, 30 Zanoa, Odollam, and in their villages, at Lachis and its dependencies, and at Azeca and the villages thereof. And they dwelt from Bersabee unto the valley of Ennom. 31 And the children of Benjamin, from Geba, at Mechmas, and at Hai, and at Bethel, and in the villages thereof, 32 At Anathoth, Nob, Anania, 33 Asor, Rama, Gethaim, 34 Hadid, Seboim, and Neballat, Lod, 35 And Ono the valley of craftsmen. 36 And of the Levites were portions of Juda and Benjamin.
1 And as they were speaking to the people the priests and the officer of the temple and the Sadducees came upon them, 2 Being grieved that they taught the people and preached in Jesus the resurrection from the dead: 3 And they laid hands upon them and put them in hold till the next day: for it was now evening. 4 But many of them who had heard the word believed: and the number of the men was made five thousand. 5 And it came to pass on the morrow, that their princes and ancients and scribes were gathered together in Jerusalem. 6 And Annas the high priest and Caiphas and John and Alexander: and as many as were of the kindred of the high priest. 7 And setting them in the midst, they asked: By what power or by what name, have you done this? 8 Then Peter, filled with the Holy Ghost, said to them: Ye princes of the people and ancients, hear. 9 If we this day are examined concerning the good deed done to the infirm man, by what means he hath been made whole: 10 Be it known to you all and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom you crucified, whom God hath raised from the dead, even by him, this man standeth here before you, whole. 11 This is the stone which was rejected by you the builders, which is become the head of the corner. 12 Neither is there salvation in any other. For there is no other name under heaven given to men, whereby we must be saved. 13 Now seeing the constancy of Peter and of John, understanding that they were illiterate and ignorant men, they wondered: and they knew them that they had been with Jesus. 14 Seeing the man also who had been healed, standing with them, they could say nothing against it. 15 But they commanded them to go aside out of the council: and they conferred among themselves, 16 Saying: What shall we do to these men? For indeed a miracle hath been done by them, known to all the inhabitants of Jerusalem. It is manifest: and we cannot deny it. 17 But that it may be no farther spread among the people, let us threaten them that they speak no more in this name to any man. 18 And calling them, they charged them not to speak at all, nor teach in the name of Jesus. 19 But Peter and John answering, said to them: If it be just, in the sight of God, to hear you rather than God, judge ye. 20 For we cannot but speak the things which we have seen and heard. 21 But they, threatening, sent them away, not finding how they might punish them, because of the people: for all men glorified what had been done, in that which had come to pass. 22 For the man was above forty years old, in whom that miraculous cure had been wrought.
