The Genealogy of Saul the Benjamite (continued)
9:13 And their brethren, heads of the house of their fathers, a thousand and seven hundred and threescore; very able men for the work of the service of the house of God.
9:14 And of the Levites; Shemaiah the son of Hasshub, the son of Azrikam, the son of Hashabiah, of the sons of Merari;
9:15 And Bakbakkar, Heresh, and Galal, and Mattaniah the son of Micah, the son of Zichri, the son of Asaph;
9:16 And Obadiah the son of Shemaiah, the son of Galal, the son of Jeduthun, and Berechiah the son of Asa, the son of Elkanah, that dwelt in the villages of the Netophathites.
9:17 And the porters were, Shallum, and Akkub, and Talmon, and Ahiman, and their brethren: Shallum was the chief;
9:18 Who hitherto waited in the king's gate eastward: they were porters in the companies of the children of Levi.
9:19 And Shallum the son of Kore, the son of Ebiasaph, the son of Korah, and his brethren, of the house of his father, the Korahites, were over the work of the service, keepers of the gates of the tabernacle: and their fathers, being over the host of the LORD, were keepers of the entry.
9:20 And Phinehas the son of Eleazar was the ruler over them in time past, and the LORD was with him.
9:21 And Zechariah the son of Meshelemiah was porter of the door of the tabernacle of the congregation.
9:22 All these which were chosen to be porters in the gates were two hundred and twelve. These were reckoned by their genealogy in their villages, whom David and Samuel the seer did ordain in their set office.
9:23 So they and their children had the oversight of the gates of the house of the LORD, namely, the house of the tabernacle, by wards.
9:24 In four quarters were the porters, toward the east, west, north, and south.
9:25 And their brethren, which were in their villages, were to come after seven days from time to time with them.
9:26 For these Levites, the four chief porters, were in their set office, and were over the chambers and treasuries of the house of God.
9:27 And they lodged round about the house of God, because the charge was upon them, and the opening thereof every morning pertained to them.
9:28 And certain of them had the charge of the ministering vessels, that they should bring them in and out by tale.
9:30 And some of the sons of the priests made the ointment of the spices.
9:31 And Mattithiah, one of the Levites, who was the firstborn of Shallum the Korahite, had the set office over the things that were made in the pans.
9:32 And other of their brethren, of the sons of the Kohathites, were over the shewbread, to prepare it every sabbath.
9:33 And these are the singers, chief of the fathers of the Levites, who remaining in the chambers were free: for they were employed in that work day and night.
9:34 These chief fathers of the Levites were chief throughout their generations; these dwelt at Jerusalem.
