1 Chronicles 24
Literal Standard Version Par ▾ 
1And [these are] their divisions, of the sons of Aaron. [The] sons of Aaron [are] Nadab, and Abihu, Eleazar, and Ithamar. 2And Nadab dies—and Abihu—in the presence of their father, and they had no sons, and Eleazar and Ithamar act as priests. 3And David distributes them—and Zadok of the sons of Eleazar, and Ahimelech of the sons of Ithamar—according to their office in their service; 4and there are found of the sons of Eleazar more for heads of the mighty men than of the sons of Ithamar; and they distribute them. Of the sons of Eleazar, heads for [each] house of [their] fathers—sixteen; and of the sons of Ithamar, for [each] house of their fathers—eight. 5And they distribute them by lots, with one another, for they have been princes of the holy place and princes of God, from the sons of Eleazar and from the sons of Ithamar. 6And Shemaiah son of Nethaneel the scribe, of the Levites, writes them before the king, and the princes, and Zadok the priest, and Ahimelech son of Abiathar, and heads of the fathers for priests and for Levites, one house of a father being taken possession of for Eleazar and one being taken possession of for Ithamar.

7And the first lot goes out for Jehoiarib, for Jedaiah the second, 8for Harim the third, for Seorim the fourth, 9for Malchijah the fifth, for Mijamin the sixth, 10for Hakkoz the seventh, for Abijah the eighth, 11for Jeshuah the ninth, for Shecaniah the tenth, 12for Eliashib the eleventh, for Jakim the twelfth, 13for Huppah the thirteenth, for Jeshebeab the fourteenth, 14for Bilgah the fifteenth, for Immer the sixteenth, 15for Hezir the seventeenth, for Aphses the eighteenth, 16for Pethahiah the nineteenth, for Jehezekel the twentieth, 17for Jachin the twenty-first, for Gamul the twenty-second, 18for Delaiah the twenty-third, for Maaziah the twenty-fourth. 19These [are] their appointments for their service, to come into the house of YHWH, according to their ordinance by the hand of their father Aaron, as YHWH God of Israel commanded them.

20And of the sons of Levi who are left—of sons of Amram: Shubael; of sons of Shubael: Jehdeiah. 21Of Rehabiah, of sons of Rehabiah: the head Ishshiah. 22Of the Izharite: Shelomoth; of sons of Shelomoth: Jahath. 23And sons of Jeriah: Amariah the second, Jahaziel the third, Jekameam the fourth. 24Sons of Uzziel: Michah; of sons of Michah: Shamir. 25Ishshiah [is] a brother of Michah; of sons of Ishshiah: Zechariah; 26sons of Merari: Mahli and Mushi; sons of Jaaziah: Beno; sons of Merari, of Jaaziah: Beno, and Shoham, and Zaccur, and Ibri. Of Mahli: Eleazar, who had no sons; of Kish, sons of Kish: Jerahmeel. And sons of Mushi [are] Mahli, and Eder, and Jerimoth; these [are] sons of the Levites, for the house of their fathers, and they also cast lots just as their brothers, the sons of Aaron, before David the king, and Zadok, and Ahimelech, and heads of the fathers for priests and for Levites; the chief father just as his younger brother.
