Nehemiah 7
The Holy Scriptures (Jubilee Bible 2000)

1Now it came to pass, when the wall was built and I had set up the doors and the porters and the singers and the Levites were appointed, 2that I commanded my brother Hanani, and Hananiah, the prince of the palace in Jerusalem (for he was as a man of truth and feared God above many); 3and I said unto them, Do not let the gates of Jerusalem be opened until the sun is hot and even with the guards present, let them shut the doors and bar them. And appoint guards of the inhabitants of Jerusalem, each one in his watch and each one to be in front of his house.

4Now the city was large and great, but there were few people in it, and the houses were not rebuilt.

5And my God put it into my heart to gather together the principals and the rulers and the people, that they might be reckoned by genealogy. And I found the register of the genealogy of those who had come up before and found written therein:

6These are the sons of the province, that came up out of the captivity, of those that had been carried away, whom Nebuchadnezzar, the king of Babylon, had carried away and returned to Jerusalem and to Judah, each one unto his city, 7who came with Zerubbabel, Jeshua, Nehemiah, Azariah, Raamiah, Nahamani, Mordecai, Bilshan, Mispereth, Bigvai, Nehum, and Baanah. The number of the men of the people of Israel: 8The sons of Parosh, two thousand one hundred and seventy-two. 9The sons of Shephatiah, three hundred and seventy-two. 10The sons of Arah, six hundred and fifty-two. 11The sons of Pahathmoab, of the sons of Jeshua and Joab, two thousand eight hundred and eighteen. 12The sons of Elam, one thousand two hundred and fifty-four. 13The sons of Zattu, eight hundred and forty-five. 14The sons of Zaccai, seven hundred and sixty. 15The sons of Binnui, six hundred and forty-eight. 16The sons of Bebai, six hundred and twenty-eight. 17The sons of Azgad, two thousand three hundred and twenty-two. 18The sons of Adonikam, six hundred and seventy-seven. 19The sons of Bigvai, two thousand sixty-seven. 20The sons of Adin, six hundred and fifty-five. 21The sons of Ater of Hezekiah, ninety-eight. 22The sons of Hashum, three hundred and twenty-eight. 23The sons of Bezai, three hundred and twenty-four. 24The sons of Hariph, one hundred and twelve. 25The sons of Gibeon, ninety-five. 26The men of Bethlehem and Netophah, one hundred and eighty-eight. 27The men of Anathoth, one hundred and twenty-eight. 28The men of Bethazmaveth, forty-two. 29The men of Kirjathjearim, Chephirah, and Beeroth, seven hundred and forty-three. 30The men of Ramah and of Geba, six hundred and twenty-one. 31The men of Michmas, one hundred and twenty-two. 32The men of Bethel and Ai, one hundred and twenty-three. 33The men of the other Nebo, fifty-two. 34The sons of the other Elam, one thousand two hundred and fifty-four. 35The sons of Harim, three hundred and twenty. 36The sons of Jericho, three hundred and forty-five. 37The sons of Lod, Hadid, and Ono, seven hundred and twenty-one. 38The sons of Senaah, three thousand nine hundred and thirty.

39The priests: the sons of Jedaiah, of the house of Jeshua, nine hundred and seventy-three. 40The sons of Immer, one thousand fifty-two. 41The sons of Pashur, one thousand two hundred and forty-seven. 42The sons of Harim, one thousand and seventeen.

43The Levites: the sons of Jeshua, of Kadmiel, and of the sons of Hodevah, seventy-four. 44The singers: the sons of Asaph, one hundred and forty-eight. 45The porters: the sons of Shallum, the sons of Ater, the sons of Talmon, the sons of Akkub, the sons of Hatita, the sons of Shobai, one hundred thirty-eight.

46The Nethinims: the sons of Ziha, the sons of Hashupha, the sons of Tabbaoth, 47the sons of Keros, the sons of Sia, the sons of Padon, 48the sons of Lebana, the sons of Hagaba, the sons of Shalmai, 49the sons of Hanan, the sons of Giddel, the sons of Gahar, 50the sons of Reaiah, the sons of Rezin, the sons of Nekoda, 51the sons of Gazzam, the sons of Uzza, the sons of Phaseah, 52the sons of Besai, the sons of Meunim, the sons of Nephishesim, 53the sons of Bakbuk, the sons of Hakupha, the sons of Harhur, 54the sons of Bazlith, the sons of Mehida, the sons of Harsha, 55the sons of Barkos, the sons of Sisera, the sons of Tamah, 56the sons of Neziah, the sons of Hatipha.

57The sons of Solomon’s slaves: the sons of Sotai, the sons of Sophereth, the sons of Perida, 58the sons of Jaala, the sons of Darkon, the sons of Giddel, 59the sons of Shephatiah, the sons of Hattil, the sons of Pochereth of Zebaim, the sons of Amon.

60All the Nethinims, and the sons of Solomon’s slaves, were three hundred and ninety-two.

61And these were they which came up also from Telmelah, Telharesha, Cherub, Addon, and Immer; but they could not show their father’s house, nor their seed, whether they were of Israel. 62The sons of Delaiah, the sons of Tobiah, the sons of Nekoda, six hundred and forty-two.

63And of the priests: the sons of Habaiah, the sons of Koz, the sons of Barzillai, who took one of the daughters of Barzillai the Gileadite to wife, and was called after their name. 64These sought their register among those that were reckoned by genealogy, but it was not found; therefore, were they, as polluted, put from the priesthood. 65And the Tirshatha said unto them that they should not eat of the most holy things until there stood up a priest with Urim and Thummim.

66The whole congregation united as one man was forty-two thousand three hundred and sixty, 67not counting their menslaves and their maidslaves, of whom there were seven thousand three hundred and thirty-seven; and they had two hundred and forty-five men and women singers. 68Their horses, seven hundred and thirty-six; their mules, two hundred and forty-five: 69Their camels, four hundred and thirty-five; their asses, six thousand seven hundred and twenty.

70And some of the princes of the families gave unto the work. The Tirshatha gave for the treasure one thousand drams of gold, fifty basins, and five hundred and thirty priests’ garments. 71And the princes of the families gave for the treasure of the work twenty thousand drams of gold and two thousand two hundred pounds of silver. 72And that which the rest of the people gave was twenty thousand drams of gold and two thousand pounds of silver and sixty-seven priests’ garments.

73So the priests and the Levites and the porters and the singers and those of the people and the Nethinims and all Israel dwelt in their cities; and when the seventh month came, the sons of Israel were in their cities.
