Time Passes; Heads of Provinces

1 Now the R277 leaders of the people lived in Jerusalem, but the rest of the people cast R278 lots to bring one out of ten to live in Jerusalem, the R279 holy city, while nine-tenths remained in the other cities. 2 And the people blessed all the men who volunteered R280 to live in Jerusalem.

3 Now R281 these are the heads of the provinces who lived in Jerusalem, but in the cities of Judah each R282 lived on his own property in their cities--the Israelites, F124 the priests, the Levites, the temple R283 F125 servants and the descendants R284 F126 of Solomon's servants. 4 Some of the sons of Judah and some of the sons of Benjamin lived in Jerusalem. From the sons of Judah: Athaiah the son of Uzziah, the son of Zechariah, the son of Amariah, the son of Shephatiah, the son of Mahalalel, of the sons of Perez; 5 and Maaseiah the son of Baruch, the son of Col-hozeh, the son of Hazaiah, the son of Adaiah, the son of Joiarib, the son of Zechariah, the son of the Shilonite. 6 All the sons of Perez who lived in Jerusalem were 468 able men.

7 Now these are the sons of Benjamin: Sallu the son of Meshullam, the son of Joed, the son of Pedaiah, the son of Kolaiah, the son of Maaseiah, the son of Ithiel, the son of Jeshaiah; 8 and after him Gabbai and Sallai, 928. 9 Joel the son of Zichri was their overseer, and Judah the son of Hassenuah was second in F127 command of the city.

10 From the priests: Jedaiah the son of Joiarib, Jachin, 11 Seraiah the son of Hilkiah, the son of Meshullam, the son of Zadok, the son of Meraioth, the son of Ahitub, the leader of the house of God, 12 and their kinsmen F128 who performed the work of the temple, F129 822; and Adaiah the son of Jeroham, the son of Pelaliah, the son of Amzi, the son of Zechariah, the son of Pashhur, the son of Malchijah, 13 and his kinsmen, heads of fathers' households, 242; and Amashsai the son of Azarel, the son of Ahzai, the son of Meshillemoth, the son of Immer, 14 and their brothers, valiant warriors, 128. And their overseer was Zabdiel, the son of Haggedolim. F130

15 Now from the Levites: Shemaiah the son of Hasshub, the son of Azrikam, the son of Hashabiah, the son of Bunni; 16 and Shabbethai and Jozabad, from the leaders F131 of the Levites, who were in F132 charge of the R285 outside work of the house of God; 17 and Mattaniah the son of Mica, the son of Zabdi, F133 the son of Asaph, who was the leader F134 in beginning the thanksgiving at prayer, and Bakbukiah, the second among his brethren; and Abda F135 the son of Shammua, F136 the son of Galal, the son of Jeduthun. 18 All the Levites in the R286 holy city were 284.

19 Also the gatekeepers, Akkub, Talmon and their brethren who kept watch at the gates, were 172.

Outside Jerusalem

20 The rest of Israel, of the priests and of the Levites, were in all the cities of Judah, each on R287 his own inheritance. 21 But the R288 temple servants were living in Ophel, and Ziha and Gishpa were in F137 charge of the temple servants.

22 Now the R289 overseer of the Levites in Jerusalem was Uzzi the son of Bani, the son of Hashabiah, the son of Mattaniah, the son of Mica, from the sons of Asaph, who were the singers for the service F138 of the house of God. 23 For R290 there was a commandment from the king concerning them and a firm regulation for the song leaders day R291 by day. 24 Pethahiah the son of Meshezabel, of the sons of R292 Zerah the son of Judah, was the king's R293 representative F139 in all matters concerning the people.

25 Now as for the villages with their fields, some of the sons of Judah lived in Kiriath-arba R294 and its towns, F140 in Dibon R295 and its towns, F140 and in Jekabzeel and its villages, 26 and in Jeshua, in Moladah and Beth-pelet, 27 and in Hazar-shual, in Beersheba and its towns, 28 and in Ziklag, in Meconah and in its towns, 29 and in En-rimmon, in Zorah and in Jarmuth, 30 Zanoah, Adullam, and their villages, Lachish and its fields, Azekah and its towns. So they encamped from Beersheba as far as the valley of Hinnom. 31 The sons of Benjamin also lived from Geba onward, at Michmash and Aija, at Bethel and its towns, 32 at Anathoth, Nob, Ananiah, 33 Hazor, Ramah, Gittaim, 34 Hadid, Zeboim, Neballat, 35 Lod and Ono, the valley of craftsmen. 36 From the Levites, some divisions in Judah belonged to Benjamin.
