1 And it came to be, when the wall was rebuilt, that I stood up the doors, and the gatekeepers, and the singers, and the Lĕwites were appointed.

2 And I put my brother Ḥanani in charge of Yerushalayim, and Ḥananyah the head of the palace, for he was a trustworthy man and revered Elohim more than many.

3 And I said to them, “Let not the gates of Yerushalayim be opened until the sun is hot. And while they are standing by, let them shut the doors and bolt them. And appoint guards from among the inhabitants of Yerushalayim, each at his post, and each in front of his own house.”

4 And the city was wide on both sides and great, but the people in it were few, and the houses were not rebuilt.

5 And my Elohim put it into my heart to gather the nobles, and the deputy rulers, and the people, in order to be registered by genealogy. And I found a register of the genealogy of those who had come up at the beginning, and I found written in it:

6 These are the sons of the province who came back from the captivity of the exiles whom Neḇuḵaḏnetstsar the sovereign of Baḇel had exiled, and who returned to Yerushalayim and Yahuḏah, each to his city,

7 who came with Zerubbaḇel, Yĕshua, Neḥemyah, Azaryahu, Ra’amyah, Naḥamani, Mordeḵai, Bilshan, Mispereth, Biḡwai, Neḥum, Ba’anah. The number of the men of the people of sons of Yisra’ĕl:

60 All the Nethinim, and the sons of Shelomoh’s servants, were three hundred and ninety-two.

61 And these were the ones who came up from Tĕl Melaḥ, Tĕl Ḥarsha, Keruḇ, Addon, and Immĕr, but they were unable to show their father’s house, and their seed, whether they were of Yisra’ĕl:

62 sons of Delayah, sons of Toḇiyah, sons of Neqoḏa, six hundred and forty-two.

63 And of the kohenim: sons of Ḥaḇayah, sons of Qots, sons of Barzillai, who took a wife of the daughters of Barzillai the Gil’aḏite, and was called by their name.

64 These sought their register of those who were counted by genealogy, but it was not found, so they were as defiled from the kehunnah.

65 And the governor said to them that they should not eat of the most qodesh gifts until a kohĕn stood up with the Urim and Tummim.

66 All the assembly together was forty-two thousand three hundred and sixty,

67 besides their male and female servants, these were seven thousand three hundred and thirty-seven. And they had two hundred and forty-five men and women singers.

68 Their horses were seven hundred and thirty-six, their mules two hundred and forty-five,

69 camels four hundred and thirty-five, donkeys six thousand seven hundred and twenty.

70 And some of the heads of the fathers contributed to the work. The governor gave to the treasury one thousand gold draḵmas, fifty basins, and five hundred and thirty garments of kohenim.

71 Some of the heads of the fathers houses’ gave to the treasury of the work twenty thousand gold draḵmas, and two thousand two hundred silver minas.

72 And the rest of the people gave twenty thousand gold draḵmas, two thousand silver minas, and sixty-seven garments of kohenim.

73 So the kohenim, and the Lĕwites, and the gatekeepers, and the singers, and some of the people, and the Nethinim, and all Yisra’ĕl dwelt in their cities.
