The Residents of Jerusalem
(1 Chronicles 9.1-34)
1And the rulers of the people dwelt at Jerusalem: the rest of the people also cast lots, to bring one of ten to dwell in Jerusalem the holy city, and nine parts to dwell in other cities. 2And the people blessed all the men, that willingly offered themselves to dwell at Jerusalem.
3 # Neh 7.73. Now these are the chief of the province that dwelt in Jerusalem: but in the cities of Judah dwelt every one in his possession in their cities, to wit, Israel, the priests, and the Levites, and the Neth´inim, and the children of Solomon's servants. 4And at Jerusalem dwelt certain of the children of Judah, and of the children of Benjamin. Of the children of Judah; Athai´ah the son of Uzzi´ah, the son of Zechari´ah, the son of Amari´ah, the son of Shephati´ah, the son of Mahal´aleel, of the children of Perez; 5and Ma-asei´ah the son of Baruch, the son of Col–ho´zeh, the son of Hazai´ah, the son of Adai´ah, the son of Joi´arib, the son of Zechari´ah, the son of Shi´loni. 6All the sons of Perez that dwelt at Jerusalem were four hundred threescore and eight valiant men.
7And these are the sons of Benjamin; Sallu the son of Meshul´lam, the son of Jo´ed, the son of Pedai´ah, the son of Kolai´ah, the son of Ma-asei´ah, the son of Ith´i-el, the son of Jesai´ah. 8And after him Gab´bai, Sal´lai, nine hundred twenty and eight. 9And Joel the son of Zichri was their overseer: and Judah the son of Senu´ah was second over the city.
10Of the priests: Jedai´ah the son of Joi´arib, Jachin. 11Serai´ah the son of Hilki´ah, the son of Meshul´lam, the son of Zadok, the son of Merai´oth, the son of Ahi´tub, was the ruler of the house of God. 12And their brethren that did the work of the house were eight hundred twenty and two: and Adai´ah the son of Jero´ham, the son of Pelali´ah, the son of Amzi, the son of Zechari´ah, the son of Pashur, the son of Malchi´ah, 13and his brethren, chief of the fathers, two hundred forty and two: and Am´ashai the son of Az´areel, the son of Aha´sai, the son of Meshil´lemoth, the son of Immer, 14and their brethren, mighty men of valor, a hundred twenty and eight: and their overseer was Zab´di-el, the son of one of the great men.
15Also of the Levites: Shemai´ah the son of Hashub, the son of Az´rikam, the son of Hashabi´ah, the son of Bunni; 16and Shab´bethai and Joz´abad, of the chief of the Levites, had the oversight of the outward business of the house of God. 17And Mattani´ah the son of Micha, the son of Zabdi, the son of Asaph, was the principal to begin the thanksgiving in prayer: and Bakbuki´ah the second among his brethren, and Abda the son of Shammu´a, the son of Galal, the son of Jedu´thun. 18All the Levites in the holy city were two hundred fourscore and four.
19Moreover the porters, Akkub, Talmon, and their brethren that kept the gates, were a hundred seventy and two. 20And the residue of Israel, of the priests, and the Levites, were in all the cities of Judah, every one in his inheritance. 21But the Neth´inim dwelt in Ophel: and Ziha and Gispa were over the Neth´inim.
22The overseer also of the Levites at Jerusalem was Uzzi the son of Bani, the son of Hashabi´ah, the son of Mattani´ah, the son of Micha. Of the sons of Asaph, the singers were over the business of the house of God. 23For it was the king's commandment concerning them, that a certain portion should be for the singers, due for every day. 24And Pethahi´ah the son of Meshez´abeel, of the children of Zerah the son of Judah, was at the king's hand in all matters concerning the people.
