11and Azariah the son of Hilkiah, son of Meshullam, son of Zadok, son of Meraioth, son of Ahitub, the chief officer of the house of God;
12and Adaiah the son of Jeroham, son of Pashhur, son of Malchijah, and Maasai the son of Adiel, son of Jahzerah, son of Meshullam, son of Meshillemith, son of Immer;
13besides their kinsmen, heads of their fathers’ houses, 1,760, mighty men for the work of the service of the house of God.
14Of the Levites: Shemaiah the son of Hasshub, son of Azrikam, son of Hashabiah, of the sons of Merari;
15and Bakbakkar, Heresh, Galal and Mattaniah the son of Mica, son of Zichri, son of Asaph;
16and Obadiah the son of Shemaiah, son of Galal, son of Jeduthun, and Berechiah the son of Asa, son of Elkanah, who lived in the villages of the Netophathites.
17The gatekeepers were Shallum, Akkub, Talmon, Ahiman, and their kinsmen (Shallum was the chief);
18until then they were in the king’s gate on the east side as the gatekeepers of the camps of the Levites.
19Shallum the son of Kore, son of Ebiasaph, son of Korah, and his kinsmen of his fathers’ house, the Korahites, were in charge of the work of the service, keepers of the thresholds of the tent, as their fathers had been in charge of the camp of the Lord, keepers of the entrance.
20And Phinehas the son of Eleazar was the chief officer over them in time past; the Lord was with him.
21Zechariah the son of Meshelemiah was gatekeeper at the entrance of the tent of meeting.
22All these, who were chosen as gatekeepers at the thresholds, were 212. They were enrolled by genealogies in their villages. David and Samuel the seer established them in their office of trust.
23So they and their sons were in charge of the gates of the house of the Lord, that is, the house of the tent, as guards.
24The gatekeepers were on the four sides, east, west, north, and south.
25And their kinsmen who were in their villages were obligated to come in every seven days, in turn, to be with these,
26for the four chief gatekeepers, who were Levites, were entrusted to be over the chambers and the treasures of the house of God.
27And they lodged around the house of God, for on them lay the duty of watching, and they had charge of opening it every morning.
28Some of them had charge of the utensils of service, for they were required to count them when they were brought in and taken out.
29Others of them were appointed over the furniture and over all the holy utensils, also over the fine flour, the wine, the oil, the incense, and the spices.
30Others, of the sons of the priests, prepared the mixing of the spices,
31and Mattithiah, one of the Levites, the firstborn of Shallum the Korahite, was entrusted with making the flat cakes.
32Also some of their kinsmen of the Kohathites had charge of the showbread, to prepare it every Sabbath.
33Now these, the singers, the heads of fathers’ houses of the Levites, were in the chambers of the temple free from other service, for they were on duty day and night.
34These were heads of fathers’ houses of the Levites, according to their generations, leaders. These lived in Jerusalem.
