1Now the rulers of the people dwelt at Yerushalayim, and the rest of the people cast lots to bring one out of ten to dwell in Yerushalayim, the set-apart city, and nine-tenths were to dwell in other cities.
2And the people blessed all the men who volunteered to dwell at Yerushalayim.
3And these are the heads of the province who dwelt in Yerushalayim, but in the cities of Yehuḏah everyone dwelt in his own possession in their cities – Yisra’ĕl, the priests, and the Lĕwites, and the Nethinim, and the sons of Shelomoh’s servants.
4And in Yerushalayim dwelt certain of the children of Yehuḏah and of the children of Binyamin. Of the children of Yehuḏah: Athayah son of Uzziyah, son of Zeḵaryah, son of Amaryah, son of Shephatyah, son of Mahalal’ĕl, of the children of Perets;
5and Ma‛asĕyah son of Baruḵ, son of Kol-Ḥozeh, son of Ḥazayah, son of Aḏayah, son of Yoyariḇ, son of Zeḵaryah, son of Shiloni.
6All the sons of Perets who dwelt at Yerushalayim were four hundred and sixty-eight brave men.
7And these are the sons of Binyamin: Sallu son of Meshullam, son of Yow‛ĕḏ, son of Peḏayah, son of Qolayah, son of Ma‛asĕyah, son of Ithi’ĕl, son of Yeshayah;
8and after him Gabbai, Sallai, nine hundred and twenty-eight.
9And Yo’ĕl son of Ziḵri was their overseer, and Yehuḏah son of Senuah was second over the city.
10Of the priests: Yeḏayah son of Yoyariḇ, Yaḵin,
11Serayah son of Ḥilqiyah, son of Meshullam, son of Tsaḏoq, son of Merayoth, son of Aḥituḇ, was the leader of the House of Elohim.
12And their brothers who did the work of the House were eight hundred and twenty-two; and Aḏayah son of Yeroḥam, son of Pelalyah, son of Amtsi, son of Zeḵaryah, son of Pashhur, son of Malkiyah,
13and his brothers, heads of the fathers’ houses, were two hundred and forty-two; and Amashai son of Azar’ĕl, son of Aḥzai, son of Meshillĕmoth, son of Immĕr,
14and their brothers, mighty brave ones, were one hundred and twenty-eight. And their overseer was Zaḇdi’ĕl, son of the great ones.
15Also of the Lĕwites: Shemayah son of Ḥashshuḇ, son of Azriqam, son of Ḥashaḇyah, son of Bunni;
16and Shabbethai and Yozaḇaḏ, of the heads of the Lĕwites, over the outside work of the House of Elohim;
17and Mattanyah son of Miḵa, son of Zaḇdi, son of Asaph, who was the leader who began the thanksgiving with prayer, and Baqbuqyah the second among his brothers, and Aḇda son of Shammua, son of Galal, son of Yeḏuthun.
18All the Lĕwites in the set-apart city were two hundred and eighty-four.
19And the gatekeepers, Aqquḇ, Talmon, and their brothers keeping guard at the gates, were one hundred and seventy-two.
20And the rest of Yisra’ĕl, of the priests, Lĕwites, were in all the cities of Yehuḏah, each one in his inheritance.
21But the Nethinim dwelt in Ophel. And Tsiḥa and Gishpa were over the Nethinim.
22And the overseer of the Lĕwites at Yerushalayim was Uzzi son of Bani, son of Ḥashaḇyah, son of Mattanyah, son of Miḵa. Of the sons of Asaph, the singers were over the work of the House of Elohim,
23for the sovereign’s command was upon them – and support for the singers, a matter day by day.
24And Pethaḥyah son of Meshĕyzaḇ’ĕl, of the children of Zeraḥ son of Yehuḏah, was the sovereign’s deputy in all matters concerning the people.
25And at the villages with their fields, some of the children of Yehuḏah dwelt in Qiryath Arba and its villages, and in Diḇon and its villages, and in Yeqaḇtse’ĕl and its villages,
26and in Yĕshua, and in Molaḏah, and in Bĕyth Pelet,
27and in Ḥatsar Shu‛al, and in Be’ĕrsheḇa and its villages,
28and in Tsiqlag̅, and in Meḵonah and its villages,
29and in Ěn Rimmon, and in Tsorah, and in Yarmuth,
30Zanowaḥ, Aḏullam, and their villages; in Laḵish and its fields; in Azĕqah and its villages. So they dwelt from Be’ĕrsheḇa to the Valley of Hinnom.
31And the children of Binyamin: from Geḇa, Miḵmash, and Ayyah, and Bĕyth Ěl, and their villages;
32Anathoth, Noḇ, Ananyah;
33Ḥatsor, Ramah, Gittayim;
34Ḥaḏiḏ, Tseḇo‛im, Neḇallat;
35Loḏ, and Ono, and the Valley of Craftsmen.
36And of the Lĕwites, the divisions of Yehuḏah were for Binyamin.
