THE HOLY BIBLE Authorized King James

1 Chronicles (Author Compiled by Isaiah and Ezra from records of Nathan, Gad, Iddo, Ahijah, Jehu and others.)

9:27And they lodged round about the house of God, because the charge was upon them, and the opening thereof every morning pertained to them.

9:28And certain of them had the charge of the ministering vessels, that they should bring them in and out by tale.

9:29Some of them also were appointed to oversee the vessels, and all the instruments of the sanctuary, and the fine flour, and the wine, and the oil, and the frankincense, and the spices.

23:2And he gathered together all the princes of Israel, with the priests and the Levites.

23:3Now the Levites were numbered from the age of thirty years and upward: and their number by their polls, man by man, was thirty and eight thousand.

23:4Of which, twenty and four thousand were to set forward the work of the house of the LORD; and six thousand were officers and judges:

23:5Moreover four thousand were porters; and four thousand praised the LORD with the instruments which I made, said David, to praise therewith.

23:6And David divided them into courses among the sons of Levi, namely, Gershon, Kohath, and Merari.

23:7Of the Gershonites were, Laadan, and Shimei.

23:8The sons of Laadan; the chief was Jehiel, and Zetham, and Joel, three.

23:9The sons of Shimei; Shelomith, and Haziel, and Haran, three. These were the chief of the fathers of Laadan.

23:10And the sons of Shimei were, Jahath, Zina, and Jeush, and Beriah. These four were the sons of Shimei.

23:11And Jahath was the chief, and Zizah the second: but Jeush and Beriah had not many sons; therefore they were in one reckoning, according to their father's house.

23:12The sons of Kohath; Amram, Izhar, Hebron, and Uzziel, four.

23:13The sons of Amram; Aaron and Moses: and Aaron was separated, that he should sanctify the most holy things, he and his sons for ever, to burn incense before the LORD, to minister unto him, and to bless in his name for ever.

23:14Now concerning Moses the man of God, his sons were named of the tribe of Levi.

23:15The sons of Moses were, Gershom, and Eliezer.

23:16Of the sons of Gershom, Shebuel was the chief.

23:17And the sons of Eliezer were, Rehabiah the chief. And Eliezer had none other sons; but the sons of Rehabiah were very many.

23:18Of the sons of Izhar; Shelomith the chief.

23:19Of the sons of Hebron; Jeriah the first, Amariah the second, Jahaziel the third, and Jekameam the fourth.

23:20Of the sons of Uzziel; Michah the first, and Jesiah the second.

23:21The sons of Merari; Mahli, and Mushi. The sons of Mahli; Eleazar, and Kish.

23:22And Eleazar died, and had no sons, but daughters: and their brethren the sons of Kish took them.

23:23The sons of Mushi; Mahli, and Eder, and Jeremoth, three.

23:24These were the sons of Levi after the house of their fathers; even the chief of the fathers, as they were counted by number of names by their polls, that did the work for the service of the house of the LORD, from the age of twenty years and upward.

23:25For David said, The LORD God of Israel hath given rest unto his people, that they may dwell in Jerusalem for ever:

23:26And also unto the Levites; they shall no more carry the tabernacle, nor any vessels of it for the service thereof.

23:27For by the last words of David the Levites were numbered from twenty years old and above:

23:28Because their office was to wait on the sons of Aaron for the service of the house of the LORD, in the courts, and in the chambers, and in the purifying of all holy things, and the work of the service of the house of God;

23:29Both for the shewbread, and for the fine flour for meat offering, and for the unleavened cakes, and for that which is baked in the pan, and for that which is fried, and for all manner of measure and size;

23:30And to stand every morning to thank and praise the LORD, and likewise at even;

23:31And to offer all burnt sacrifices unto the LORD in the sabbaths, in the new moons, and on the set feasts, by number, according to the order commanded unto them, continually before the LORD:

23:32And that they should keep the charge of the tabernacle of the congregation, and the charge of the holy place, and the charge of the sons of Aaron their brethren, in the service of the house of the LORD.

Ezra (Author Ezra)

8:24Then I separated twelve of the chief of the priests, Sherebiah, Hashabiah, and ten of their brethren with them,

8:25And weighed unto them the silver, and the gold, and the vessels, even the offering of the house of our God, which the king, and his counsellors, and his lords, and all Israel there present, had offered:

8:26I even weighed unto their hand six hundred and fifty talents of silver, and silver vessels an hundred talents, and of gold an hundred talents;

8:27Also twenty basons of gold, of a thousand drams; and two vessels of fine copper, precious as gold.

8:28And I said unto them, Ye are holy unto the LORD; the vessels are holy also; and the silver and the gold are a freewill offering unto the LORD God of your fathers.

8:29Watch ye, and keep them, until ye weigh them before the chief of the priests and the Levites, and chief of the fathers of Israel, at Jerusalem, in the chambers of the house of the LORD.

8:30So took the priests and the Levites the weight of the silver, and the gold, and the vessels, to bring them to Jerusalem unto the house of our God.

8:31Then we departed from the river of Ahava on the twelfth day of the first month, to go unto Jerusalem: and the hand of our God was upon us, and he delivered us from the hand of the enemy, and of such as lay in wait by the way.

8:32And we came to Jerusalem, and abode there three days.

8:33Now on the fourth day was the silver and the gold and the vessels weighed in the house of our God by the hand of Meremoth the son of Uriah the priest; and with him was Eleazar the son of Phinehas; and with them was Jozabad the son of Jeshua, and Noadiah the son of Binnui, Levites;

8:34By number and by weight of every one: and all the weight was written at that time.
