24 1  And the divisions of the sons of Aaron: the sons of Aaron, Nadab and Abihu, Eleazar and Ithamar. 2  And Nadab and Abihu died before their father, and had no children; and Eleazar and Ithamar exercised the priesthood. 3  And David distributed them, both Zadok of the sons of Eleazar, and Ahimelech of the sons of Ithamar, according to their office in their service. 4  And there were more head-men found of the sons of Eleazar than of the sons of Ithamar, and [thus] were they divided: of the sons of Eleazar there were sixteen heads of fathers' houses, and eight of the sons of Ithamar according to their fathers' houses. 5  And they were divided by lot, one with another; for the princes of the sanctuary and the princes of God were of the sons of Eleazar and of the sons of Ithamar. 6  And Shemaiah the son of Nethaneel the scribe, [one] of the Levites, inscribed them before the king, and the princes, and Zadok the priest, and Ahimelech the son of Abiathar, and the chief fathers of the priests and Levites: one father's house was drawn for Eleazar, and one drawn for Ithamar. 7  And the first lot came forth for Jehoiarib, the second for Jedaiah, 8  the third for Harim, the fourth for Seorim, 9  the fifth for Malchijah, the sixth for Mijamin, 10  the seventh for Hakkoz, the eighth for Abijah, 11  the ninth for Jeshuah, the tenth for Shecaniah, 12  the eleventh for Eliashib, the twelfth for Jakim, 13  the thirteenth for Huppah, the fourteenth for Jeshebeab, 14  the fifteenth for Bilgah, the sixteenth for Immer, 15  the seventeenth for Hezir, the eighteenth for Happizez, 16  the nineteenth for Pethahiah, the twentieth for Ezekiel, 17  the twenty-first for Jachin, the twenty-second for Gamul, 18  the twenty-third for Delaiah, the twenty-fourth for Maaziah. 19  This is their ordering in their service to come into the house of Jehovah, according to their ordinance, through Aaron their father, as Jehovah the God of Israel had commanded him.

20  And as for the rest of the sons of Levi: of the sons of Amram, Shubael; of the sons of Shubael, Jehdeiah. 21  Of Rehabiah, of the sons of Rehabiah, the head was Jishijah. 22  Of the Jizharites, Shelomoth; of the sons of Shelomoth, Jahath. 23  —And the sons [of Hebron]: Jerijah [the head], Amariah the second, Jahaziel the third, Jekameam the fourth. 24  The sons of Uzziel, Micah; of the sons of Micah, Shamir; 25  the brother of Micah was Jishijah; of the sons of Jishijah, Zechariah. 26  The sons of Merari: Mahli and Mushi; the sons of Jaaziah, his son. 27  The sons of Merari by Jaaziah his son: Shoham, and Zaccur, and Ibri. 28  Of Mahli: Eleazar, who had no sons. 29  Of Kish, the sons of Kish: Jerahmeel. 30  And the sons of Mushi: Mahli, and Eder, and Jerimoth. These were the sons of the Levites according to their fathers' houses. 31  These likewise cast lots just as their brethren the sons of Aaron before David the king, and Zadok, and Ahimelech, and the chief fathers of the priests and Levites,—the chief fathers just as the youngest of their brethren.

The Divisions of the Musicians

25 1  And David and the captains of the host separated for the service those of the sons of Asaph and of Heman and of Jeduthun who were to prophesy with harps and lutes and cymbals; and the number of the men employed according to their service was: 2  of the sons of Asaph: Zaccur, and Joseph, and Nethaniah, and Asharelah, the sons of Asaph under the direction of Asaph, who prophesied at the direction of the king. 3  Of Jeduthun, the sons of Jeduthun: Gedaliah, and Zeri, and Isaiah, Hashabiah, and Mattithiah, [and Shimei] six, under the direction of their father Jeduthun, who prophesied with the harp, to give thanks and to praise Jehovah. 4  Of Heman, the sons of Heman: Bukkijah, Mattaniah, Uzziel, Shebuel, and Jerimoth, Hananiah, Hanani, Eliathah, Giddalti, and Romamti-ezer, Joshbekashah, Mallothi, Hothir, Mahazioth: 5  all these were sons of Heman the king's seer in the words of God, to exalt his power; and God had given to Heman fourteen sons and three daughters. 6  All these were under the direction of their fathers Asaph, Jeduthun, and Heman, for song in the house of Jehovah, with cymbals, lutes and harps, for the service of the house of God, under the direction of the king. 7  And the number of them, with their brethren that were instructed in the songs of Jehovah, all of them skilful, was two hundred and eighty-eight.

8  And they cast lots with one another over the charges, the small as well as the great, the teacher with the scholar. 9  And the first lot came forth for Asaph to Joseph; to Gedaliah the second: he and his brethren and his sons were twelve. 10  The third to Zaccur; his sons and his brethren, twelve. 11  The fourth to Jizri; his sons and his brethren, twelve. 12  The fifth to Nethaniah; his sons and his brethren, twelve. 13  The sixth to Bukkijah; his sons and his brethren, twelve. 14  The seventh to Jesharelah; his sons and his brethren, twelve. 15  The eighth to Isaiah; his sons and his brethren, twelve. 16  The ninth to Mattaniah; his sons and his brethren, twelve. 17  The tenth to Shimei; his sons and his brethren, twelve. 18  The eleventh to Azareel; his sons and his brethren, twelve. 19  The twelfth to Hashabiah; his sons and his brethren, twelve. 20  The thirteenth to Shubael; his sons and his brethren, twelve. 21  The fourteenth to Mattithiah; his sons and his brethren, twelve. 22  The fifteenth to Jeremoth; his sons and his brethren, twelve. 23  The sixteenth to Hananiah; his sons and his brethren, twelve. 24  The seventeenth to Joshbekashah; his sons and his brethren, twelve. 25  The eighteenth to Hanani; his sons and his brethren, twelve. 26  The nineteenth to Mallothi; his sons and his brethren, twelve. 27  The twentieth to Elijathah; his sons and his brethren, twelve. 28  The twenty-first to Hothir; his sons and his brethren, twelve. 29  The twenty-second to Giddalti; his sons and his brethren, twelve. 30  The twenty-third to Mahazioth; his sons and his brethren, twelve. 31  The twenty-fourth to Romamti-ezer; his sons and his brethren, twelve.
