1 And all Yisra’ĕl registered themselves by genealogy. And see, they were written in the book of the sovereigns of Yisra’ĕl. And Yahuḏah was exiled to Baḇel for their trespass.
2 And the first inhabitants who were in their possessions in their cities of Yisra’ĕl, were the kohenim, the Lĕwites, and the Nethinim.
3 And in Yerushalayim dwelt some of the children of Yahuḏah, and some of the children of Binyamin, and some of the children of Ephrayim and Menashsheh:
4 Uthai son of Ammihuḏ, son of Omri, son of Imri, son of Bani, of the sons of Perets, the son of Yahuḏah.
5 And of the Shilonites: Asayah the first-born and his sons.
6 And of the sons of Zeraḥ: Ye’u’ĕl, and their brothers, six hundred and ninety.
7 And of the sons of Binyamin: Sallu son of Meshullam, son of Hoḏawyah, son of Hasenu’ah;
8 and Yibneyah son of Yeroḥam; and Ĕlah son of Uzzi, son of Miḵri; and Meshullam son of Shephatyah, son of Re’uw’ĕl, son of Yiḇniyah;
9 and their brothers, according to their generations, nine hundred and fifty-six. All these men were heads of a father’s house in their fathers’ houses.
10 And of the kohenim: Yeḏayah, and Yahoyariḇ, and Yaḵin;
11 and Azaryahu son of Ḥilqiyah, son of Meshullam, son of Tsaḏoq, son of Merayoth, son of Aḥituḇ, the officer over the House of Elohim;
12 and Aḏayah son of Yeroḥam, son of Pashḥur, son of Malkiyah; and Ma’asai son of Aḏi’ĕl, son of Yaḥzĕrah, son of Meshullam, son of Meshillemith, son of Immĕr;
13 and their brothers, heads of their fathers’ houses, one thousand seven hundred and sixty, able men for the work of the service of the House of Elohim.
14 And of the Lĕwites: Shemayah son of Ḥashshuḇ, son of Azriqam, son of Ḥashaḇyah, of the sons of Merari;
15 and Baqbaqqar, Ḥeresh, and Galal, and Mattanyah son of Miḵa, son of Ziḵri, son of Asaph;
16 and Oḇaḏyah son of Shemayah, son of Galal, son of Yeḏuthun; and Bereḵyah son of Asa, son of Elqanah, who dwelt in the villages of the Netophathites.
17 And the gatekeepers: Shallum, and Aqquḇ, and Talmon, and Aḥiman, and their brothers – Shallum the chief.
18 And up till then they were gatekeepers for the camps of the children of Lĕwi at the Sovereign’s Gate on the east.
19 And Shallum son of Qorĕ, son of Eḇyasaph, son of Qoraḥ, and his brothers, from his father’s house, the Qorḥites, were over the work of the service, guards of the thresholds of the Tent. And their fathers had been guards of the entrance to the camp of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄.
20 And Pineḥas son of El’azar was leader over them in time past. 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 was with him.
21 Zeḵaryah son of Meshelemyah was gatekeeper at the entrance of the Tent of Appointment.
22 All those chosen as gatekeepers at the thresholds were two hundred and twelve. They were registered by genealogy, in their villages. Dawiḏ and Shemu’ĕl the seer had appointed them to their office of trust.
23 So they and their sons were over the gates of the House of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, the House of the Tent, by watches.
24 The gatekeepers were on the four sides: the east, west, north, and south.
25 And their brothers in their villages had to come with them from time to time for seven days.
26 For the four chief gatekeepers were in an office of trust. They were Lĕwites, and they were over the rooms and treasuries of the House of Elohim.
27 And they spent the night all around the House of Elohim because they had the duty, and they were to open it morning by morning.
28 And some of them were over the vessels of service, for they brought them in and took them out by count.
29 And some of them were appointed over the vessels, even over all the vessels of the qodesh place, and over the fine flour and the wine and the oil and the incense and the spices.
30 And some of the sons of the kohenim blended the compound of spices.
31 And Mattithyah of the Lĕwites, the first-born of Shallum the Qorḥites, was entrusted with the making of the flat cakes.
32 And some of their brothers of the sons of the Qehathites were over the showbread, to prepare every Shabbath.
33 And these were the singers, heads of the fathers’ houses of the Lĕwites, in the rooms, and were exempted from other duties, for they were employed in that work day and night.
34 These heads of the fathers’ houses of the Lĕwites were heads throughout their generations. They dwelt at Yerushalayim.
35 And Ye’i’ĕl the father of Giḇ’on, whose wife’s name was Ma’aḵah, dwelt at Giḇ’on.
36 And his first-born son was Aḇdon, then Tsur, and Qish, and Ba’al, and Nĕr, and Naḏaḇ,
37 and Geḏor, and Aḥyo, and Zeḵaryah, and Miqloth.
38 And Miqloth brought forth Shim’am. And they too dwelt alongside their relatives in Yerushalayim, with their brothers.
39 And Nĕr brought forth Qish, and Qish brought forth Sha’ul, and Sha’ul brought forth Yahonathan, and Malkishua, and Aḇinaḏaḇ, and Esh-Ba’al.
40 And the son of Yahonathan was Meriḇ-Ba’al, and Meriḇ-Ba’al brought forth Miḵah.
41 And the sons of Miḵah: Pithon, and Meleḵ, and Taḥrĕa,
42 and Aḥaz, who brought forth Yarah; and Yarah brought forth Alemeth, and Azmaweth, and Zimri. And Zimri brought forth Motsa;
43 and Motsa brought forth Bin’a, and Rephayah was his son, El’asah his son, Atsĕl his son.
44 And Atsĕl had six sons whose names were these: Azriqam, Boḵeru, and Yishma’ĕl, and She’aryah, and Oḇaḏyah, and Ḥanan. These were the sons of Atsĕl.
