27 1 Now this is the enumeration of the sons of Israel , the heads of fathers' households, the commanders of thousands and of hundreds , and their officers who served the king in all the affairs of the divisions which came in and went out month by month throughout all the months of the year , each division numbering 24,000 e e : 2 Jashobeam the son of Zabdiel had charge of the first division for the first month ; and in his division were 24,000 e e . 3 He was from the sons of Perez , and was chief of all the commanders of the army for the first month . 4 Dodai the Ahohite and his division had charge of the division for the second month , Mikloth being the chief officer ; and in his division were 24,000 e e . 5 The third commander of the army for the third month was Benaiah , the son of Jehoiada the priest , as chief ; and in his division were 24,000 e e . 6 This Benaiah was the mighty man of the thirty , and had charge of thirty ; and over his division was Ammizabad his son . 7 The fourth for the fourth month was Asahel the brother of Joab , and Zebadiah his son after him; and in his division were 24,000 e e . 8 The fifth for the fifth month was the commander Shamhuth the Izrahite ; and in his division were 24,000 e e . 9 The sixth for the sixth month was Ira the son of Ikkesh the Tekoite ; and in his division were 24,000 e e . 10 The seventh for the seventh month was Helez the Pelonite of the sons of Ephraim ; and in his division were 24,000 e e . 11 The eighth for the eighth month was Sibbecai the Hushathite of the Zerahites ; and in his division were 24,000 e e . 12 The ninth for the ninth month was Abiezer the Anathothite of the Benjamites ; and in his division were 24,000 e e . 13 The tenth for the tenth month was Maharai the Netophathite of the Zerahites ; and in his division were 24,000 e e . 14 The eleventh e for the eleventh e month was Benaiah the Pirathonite of the sons of Ephraim ; and in his division were 24,000 e e . 15 The twelfth e for the twelfth e month was Heldai the Netophathite of Othniel ; and in his division were 24,000 e e .

16 Now in charge of the tribes of Israel : chief officer for the Reubenites was Eliezer the son of Zichri ; for the Simeonites , Shephatiah the son of Maacah ; 17 for Levi , Hashabiah the son of Kemuel ; for Aaron , Zadok ; 18 for Judah , Elihu , one of David's brothers ; for Issachar , Omri the son of Michael ; 19 for Zebulun , Ishmaiah the son of Obadiah ; for Naphtali , Jeremoth the son of Azriel ; 20 for the sons of Ephraim , Hoshea the son of Azaziah ; for the half-tribe e of Manasseh , Joel the son of Pedaiah ; 21 for the half-tribe of Manasseh in Gilead , Iddo the son of Zechariah ; for Benjamin , Jaasiel the son of Abner ; 22 for Dan , Azarel the son of Jeroham . These were the princes of the tribes of Israel . 23 But David did not count e those twenty years of age and under , because the Lord had said He would multiply Israel as the stars of heaven . 24 Joab the son of Zeruiah had begun to count them, but did not finish ; and because of this , wrath came upon Israel , and the number was not included in the account of the chronicles e of King David . 25 Now Azmaveth the son of Adiel had charge of the king's storehouses . And Jonathan the son of Uzziah had charge of the storehouses in the country , in the cities , in the villages and in the towers . 26 Ezri the son of Chelub had charge of the agricultural workers who tilled the soil . 27 Shimei the Ramathite had charge of the vineyards ; and Zabdi the Shiphmite had charge of the produce of the vineyards stored in the wine cellars . 28 Baal-hanan the Gederite had charge of the olive and sycamore trees in the Shephelah ; and Joash had charge of the stores of oil . 29 Shitrai the Sharonite had charge of the cattle which were grazing in Sharon ; and Shaphat the son of Adlai had charge of the cattle in the valleys . 30 Obil the Ishmaelite had charge of the camels ; and Jehdeiah the Meronothite had charge of the donkeys . 31 Jaziz the Hagrite had charge of the flocks . All these were overseers of the property which belonged to King David . 32 Also Jonathan , David's uncle , was a counselor , a man of understanding , and a scribe ; and Jehiel the son of Hachmoni tutored the king's sons . 33 Ahithophel was counselor to the king ; and Hushai the Archite was the king's friend . 34 Jehoiada the son of Benaiah , and Abiathar succeeded Ahithophel ; and Joab was the commander of the king's army .
