1 Chronicles: 26

The temple Guard.  1Chr.26.1-19

1As for the divisions of the gatekeepers: of the Ko'rahites, Meshelemi'ah the son of Ko're, of the sons of Asaph. 2And Meshelemi'ah had sons: Zechari'ah the first-born, Jedi'a-el the second, Zebadi'ah the third, Jath'ni-el the fourth, 3Elam the fifth, Jehoha'nan the sixth, Eli-e-ho-e'nai the seventh. 4And O'bed-e'dom had sons: Shemai'ah the first-born, Jehoz'abad the second, Jo'ah the third, Sachar the fourth, Nethan'el the fifth, 5Am'mi-el the sixth, Is'sachar the seventh, Pe-ul'lethai the eighth; for God blessed him. 6Also to his son Shemai'ah were sons born who were rulers in their fathers' houses, for they were men of great ability. 7The sons of Shemai'ah: Othni, Reph'a-el, Obed, and Elza'bad, whose brethren were able men, Eli'hu and Semachi'ah. 8All these were of the sons of O'bed-e'dom with their sons and brethren, able men qualified for the service; sixty-two of O'bed-e'dom. 9And Meshelemi'ah had sons and brethren, able men, eighteen. 10And Hosah, of the sons of Merar'i, had sons: Shimri the chief (for though he was not the first-born, his father made him chief), 11Hilki'ah the second, Tebali'ah the third, Zechari'ah the fourth: all the sons and brethren of Hosah were thirteen.

12These divisions of the gatekeepers, corresponding to their chief men, had duties, just as their brethren did, ministering in the house of the LORD; 13and they cast lots by fathers' houses, small and great alike, for their gates. 14The lot for the east fell to Shelemi'ah. They cast lots also for his son Zechari'ah, a shrewd counselor, and his lot came out for the north. 15O'bed-e'dom's came out for the south, and to his sons was allotted the storehouse. 16For Shuppim and Hosah it came out for the west, at the gate of Shal'lecheth on the road that goes up. Watch corresponded to watch. 17On the east there were six each day, on the north four each day, on the south four each day, as well as two and two at the storehouse; 18and for the parbar on the west there were four at the road and two at the parbar. 19These were the divisions of the gatekeepers among the Ko'rahites and the sons of Merar'i.

Other temple duties.  1Chr.26.20-28

20And of the Levites, Ahi'jah had charge of the treasuries of the house of God and the treasuries of the dedicated gifts. 21The sons of Ladan, the sons of the Gershonites belonging to Ladan, the heads of the fathers' houses belonging to Ladan the Gershonite: Jehi'eli.

22The sons of Jehi'eli, Zetham and Jo'el his brother, were in charge of the treasuries of the house of the LORD. 23Of the Am'ramites, the Iz'harites, the He'bronites, and the Uzzie'lites - 24and Sheb'uel the son of Gershom, son of Moses, was chief officer in charge of the treasuries. 25His brethren: from Elie'zer were his son Rehabi'ah, and his son Jeshai'ah, and his son Joram, and his son Zichri, and his son Shelo'moth. 26This Shelo'moth and his brethren were in charge of all the treasuries of the dedicated gifts which David the king, and the heads of the fathers' houses, and the officers of the thousands and the hundreds, and the commanders of the army, had dedicated. 27From spoil won in battles they dedicated gifts for the maintenance of the house of the LORD. 28Also all that Samuel the seer, and Saul the son of Kish, and Abner the son of Ner, and Jo'ab the son of Zeru'iah had dedicated - all dedicated gifts were in the care of Shelo'moth and his brethren.

Duties of other Levites.  1Chr.26.29-32

29Of the Iz'harites, Chenani'ah and his sons were appointed to outside duties for Israel, as officers and judges. 30Of the He'bronites, Hashabi'ah and his brethren, one thousand seven hundred men of ability, had the oversight of Israel westward of the Jordan for all the work of the LORD and for the service of the king. 31Of the He'bronites, Jeri'jah was chief of the He'bronites of whatever genealogy or fathers' houses. (In the fortieth year of David's reign search was made and men of great ability among them were found at Jazer in Gilead.) 32King David appointed him and his brethren, two thousand seven hundred men of ability, heads of fathers' houses, to have the oversight of the Reubenites, the Gadites, and the half-tribe of the Manas'sites for everything pertaining to God and for the affairs of the king.
