1 Chronicles 24
The Division of Priests...
And the divisions of the sons of Aharon: The sons of Aharon were Nadab and Abihu, El`azar and Ithamar.
But Nadab and Abihu died before their father, and had no children, so El'azar and Ithamar served as priests.
And Dawid, with Tsadoq of the sons of El'azar, and Ahimelek of the sons of Ithamar, divided them according to their offices in their service.
And there were more leaders found of the sons of El'azar than of the sons of Ithamar. So they divided the sons of El'azar into sixteen heads of their fathers' houses, and the sons of Ithamar into eight heads of their fathers' houses.
And they were divided by lot, one group as another, for there were officials of the set-apart place and officials of Elohim, from the sons of El'azar and from the sons of Ithamar.
And the scribe, Shemayah son of Nethane'l, one of the Lewites, wrote them down before the sovereign, and the rulers, and Tsadoq the priest, and Ahimelek son of Ebyathar, and the heads of the fathers' houses of the priests and Lewites, one father's house taken for El'azar and one for Ithamar.
And the first lot came forth to Yehoyarib, the second to Yedayah,
the third to Harim, the fourth to Se'orim,
the fifth to Malkiyah, the sixth to Miyamin,
the seventh to Haqqots, the eighth to Abiyah,
the ninth to Yeshua, the tenth to Shekanyahu,
the eleventh to Elyashib, the twelfth to Yaqim,
the thirteenth to Huppah, the fourteenth to Yesheb'ab,
the fifteenth to Bilgah, the sixteenth to Immer,
the seventeenth to Hezir, the eighteenth to Happitstsets,
the nineteenth to Pethahyah, the twentieth to Yehezqel,
the twenty-first to Yakin, the twenty-second to Gamul,
the twenty-third to Delayahu, the twenty-fourth to Ma'azyahu.
These were their offices in their service for coming into the House of YHWH according to their right-ruling by the hand of Aharon their father, as YHWH Elohim of Yisra'el had commanded him.
The Rest of the Levites...
And the rest of the sons of Lewi: of the sons of Amram, Shuba`el; of the sons of Shuba`el, Yehdeyahu.
Concerning Rehabyahu, of the sons of Rehabyahu, the head was Yishshiyah.
Of the Yitsharites, Shelomoth; of the sons of Shelomoth, Yahath.
Of the sons of Hebron, Yeriyahu was the head, Amaryahu the second, Yahazi'el the third, and Yeqam'am the fourth.
Of the sons of Uzzi'el, Mikah; of the sons of Mikah, Shamir.
The brother of Mikah, Yishshiyah; of the sons of Yishshiyah, Zekaryahu.
The sons of Merari: Mahli and Mushi; the son of Ya'aziyahu, Beno.
The sons of Merari by Ya'aziyahu: Beno, and Shoham, and Zakkur, and Ibri.
Of Mahli: El'azar, who had no sons.
Of Qish: the son of Qish, Yerahme'el.
And the sons of Mushi: Mahli, Eder, and Yerimoth. These were the sons of the Lewites according to their fathers' houses.
These also cast lots, they too, as their brothers the sons of Aharon, in the presence of Sovereign Dawid, and Tsadoq, and Ahimelek, and the heads of the fathers' houses of the priests and Lewites - the head of the fathers, as well as his younger brothers.
