Divisions of Levites

1Now the divisions of the sons of Aaron were these: the sons of Aaron were Nadab, Abihu, Eleazar, and Ithamar. 2But Nadab and Abihu died before their father and had no [†]sons. So Eleazar and Ithamar ministered as priests. 3And David, with Zadok of the sons of Eleazar and Ahimelech of the sons of Ithamar, divided them according to their assignments for their service. 4And more chief men were found from the [†]sons of Eleazar than the [†]sons of Ithamar, so they divided them thus: there were sixteen heads of fathers’ households of the [†]sons of Eleazar and eight of the [†]sons of Ithamar, according to their fathers’ households. 5Thus they were divided by lot, the one as the other; for they were leaders for the sanctuary and leaders for God, both from the sons of Eleazar and the sons of Ithamar. 6Shemaiah, the son of Nethanel the scribe, from the Levites, wrote them down in the presence of the king, the princes, Zadok the priest, Ahimelech the son of Abiathar, and the heads of the fathers’ households of the priests and of the Levites; one father’s household taken for Eleazar and one taken for Ithamar.

7Now the first lot came out for Jehoiarib,

the second for Jedaiah,

8the third for Harim,

the fourth for Seorim,

9the fifth for Malchijah,

the sixth for Mijamin,

10the seventh for Hakkoz,

the eighth for Abijah,

11the ninth for Jeshua,

the tenth for Shecaniah,

12the eleventh for Eliashib,

the twelfth for Jakim,

13the thirteenth for Huppah,

the fourteenth for Jeshebeab,

14the fifteenth for Bilgah,

the sixteenth for Immer,

15the seventeenth for Hezir,

the eighteenth for Happizzez,

16the nineteenth for Pethahiah,

the twentieth for Jehezkel,

17the twenty-first for Jachin,

the twenty-second for Gamul,

18the twenty-third for Delaiah,

the twenty-fourth for Maaziah.

19These were their assignments for their service when they came in to the house of Yahweh according to the legal judgment rendered to them by the hand of Aaron their father, just as Yahweh, the God of Israel, had commanded him.

20Now for the rest of the sons of Levi:

of the sons of Amram, [†]Shubael;

of the sons of Shubael, Jehdeiah.

21Of Rehabiah: of the sons of Rehabiah, Isshiah the first.

22Of the Izharites, [†]Shelomoth; of the sons of Shelomoth, Jahath.

23The sons of Hebron: Jeriah the first, Amariah the second, Jahaziel the third, Jekameam the fourth.

24The sons of Uzziel, Micah; of the sons of Micah, Shamir.

25The brother of Micah, Isshiah; of the sons of Isshiah, Zechariah.

26The sons of Merari, Mahli and Mushi; the sons of Jaaziah, Beno.

27The sons of Merari: by Jaaziah were Beno, Shoham, Zaccur and Ibri.

28By Mahli: Eleazar, who had no sons.

29By Kish: the sons of Kish, Jerahmeel.

30The sons of Mushi: Mahli, Eder and Jerimoth.

These were the sons of the Levites according to their fathers’ households.

31These also cast lots alongside their [†]relatives the sons of Aaron in the presence of David the king, Zadok, Ahimelech, and the heads of the fathers’ households of the priests and of the Levites—the head of fathers’ households alongside those of his younger brother.
