1 Chronicles 24
1Now these are the divisions of the sons of Aaron. The sons of Aaron; Nadab and Abi´hu, Ele-a´zar and Ith´amar. 2#Lev 10.1,2. But Nadab and Abi´hu died before their father, and had no children: therefore Ele-a´zar and Ith´amar executed the priest's office. 3And David distributed them, both Zadok of the sons of Ele-a´zar, and Ahim´elech of the sons of Ith´amar, according to their offices in their service. 4And there were more chief men found of the sons of Ele-a´zar than of the sons of Ith´amar; and thus were they divided. Among the sons of Ele-a´zar there were sixteen chief men of the house of their fathers, and eight among the sons of Ith´amar according to the house of their fathers. 5Thus were they divided by lot, one sort with another; for the governors of the sanctuary, and governors of the house of God, were of the sons of Ele-a´zar, and of the sons of Ith´amar. 6And Shemai´ah the son of Nethan´e-el the scribe, one of the Levites, wrote them before the king, and the princes, and Zadok the priest, and Ahim´elech the son of Abi´athar, and before the chief of the fathers of the priests and Levites: one principal household being taken for Ele-a´zar, and one taken for Ith´amar.
7Now the first lot came forth to Jehoi´arib, the second to Jedai´ah, 8the third to Harim, the fourth to Se-o´rim, 9the fifth to Malchi´jah, the sixth to Mij´amin, 10the seventh to Hakkoz, the eighth to Abi´jah, 11the ninth to Jesh´u-ah, the tenth to Shecani´ah, 12the eleventh to Eli´ashib, the twelfth to Jakim, 13the thirteenth to Huppah, the fourteenth to Jesheb´e-ab, 14the fifteenth to Bilgah, the sixteenth to Immer, 15the seventeenth to Hezir, the eighteenth to Aphses, 16the nineteenth to Pethahi´ah, the twentieth to Jehez´ekel, 17the one and twentieth to Jachin, the two and twentieth to Gamul, 18the three and twentieth to Delai´ah, the four and twentieth to Ma-azi´ah. 19These were the orderings of them in their service to come into the house of the Lord, according to their manner, under Aaron their father, as the Lord God of Israel had commanded him.
20And the rest of the sons of Levi were these: Of the sons of Amram; Shu´ba-el: of the sons of Shu´ba-el; Jehdei´ah. 21Concerning Rehabi´ah: of the sons of Rehabi´ah, the first was Isshi´ah. 22Of the Iz´harites; Shelo´moth: of the sons of Shelo´moth; Jahath. 23And the sons of Hebron; Jeri´ah the first, Amari´ah the second, Jaha´zi-el the third, Jekame´am the fourth. 24Of the sons of Uz´zi-el; Michah: of the sons of Michah; Shamir. 25The brother of Michah was Isshi´ah: of the sons of Isshi´ah; Zechari´ah. 26The sons of Mera´ri were Mahli and Mushi: the sons of Ja-azi´ah; Beno. 27The sons of Mera´ri by Ja-azi´ah; Beno, and Shoham, and Zaccur, and Ibri. 28Of Mahli came Ele-a´zar, who had no sons. 29Concerning Kish: the son of Kish was Jerah´meel. 30The sons also of Mushi; Mahli, and Eder, and Jer´imoth. These were the sons of the Levites after the house of their fathers. 31These likewise cast lots over against their brethren the sons of Aaron in the presence of David the king, and Zadok, and Ahim´elech, and the chief of the fathers of the priests and Levites, even the principal fathers over against their younger brethren.
