- 1 Now the divisions of the descendants F276 of Aaron were these: the R344 sons of Aaron were Nadab, Abihu, Eleazar and Ithamar. 2 But R345 Nadab and Abihu died before their father and had no sons. F277 So Eleazar and Ithamar served as priests. 3 David, with Zadok R346 of the sons of Eleazar and Ahimelech of the sons of Ithamar, divided them according to their offices for F278 their ministry. 4 Since more chief men were found from the descendants F279 of Eleazar than the descendants F279 of Ithamar, they divided them thus: there were sixteen heads of fathers' households of the descendants F279 of Eleazar and eight of the descendants F279 of Ithamar, according to their fathers' households. 5 Thus R347 they were divided by lot, the one as the other; for they were officers of the sanctuary and officers of God, both from the descendants F280 of Eleazar and the descendants F280 of Ithamar. 6 Shemaiah, the son of Nethanel the scribe, from the Levites, recorded them in the presence of the king, the princes, Zadok the priest, Ahimelech R348 the son of Abiathar, and the heads of the fathers' households of the priests and of the Levites; one father's household taken for Eleazar and one taken for Ithamar. 7 Now the first lot came out 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, R349 11 the ninth for Jeshua, 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 Happizzez, 16 the nineteenth for Pethahiah, the twentieth for Jehezkel, 17 the twenty-first for Jachin, the twenty-second for Gamul, 18 the twenty-third for Delaiah, the twenty-fourth for Maaziah. 19 These R350 were their offices for their ministry when they came in to the house of the LORD according to the ordinance given to them through Aaron their father, just as the LORD God of Israel had commanded him.
