Twenty-Four Divisions of Priests

1And they number the sons of Aaron in their division, Nadab, and Abiud, and Eleazar, and Ithamar. 2And Nadab and Abiud died before their father, and they had no sons: so Eleazar and Ithamar the sons of Aaron ministered as priests. 3And David distributed them, even Sadoc of the sons of Eleazar, and Achimelech of the sons of Ithamar, according to their numbering, according to their service, according to the houses of their fathers. 4And there were found among the sons of Eleazar more chiefs of the mighty ones, than of the sons of Ithamar: and he divided them, sixteen heads of families to the sons of Eleazar, eight according to their families to the sons of Ithamar. 5And he divided them according to their lots, one with the other; for there were those who had charge of the holy things, and those who had charge of the house of the Lord among the sons of Eleazar, and among the sons of Ithamar. 6And Samaias the son of Nathanael, the scribe, of the family of Levi, wrote them down before the king, and the princes, and Sadoc the priest, and Achimelech the son of Abiathar were present; and the heads of the families of the priests and the Levites, each of a household were assigned one to Eleazar, and one to Ithamar.

7And the first lot came out to Joarim, the second to Jedia, 8the third to Charib, the fourth to Seorim, 9the fifth to Melchias, the sixth to Meiamin, 10the seventh to Cos, the eighth to Abia, 11the ninth to Jesus, the tenth to Sechenias, 12the eleventh to Eliabi, the twelfth to Jacim, 13the thirteenth to Oppha, the fourteenth to Jesbaal, 14the fifteenth to Belga, the sixteenth to Emmer, 15the seventeenth to Chezin, the eighteenth to Aphese, 16the nineteenth to Phetaea, the twentieth to Ezekel, 17the twenty-first to Achim, the twenty-second to Gamul, 18the twenty-third to Adallai, the twenty-fourth to Maasai. 19This is their numbering according to their service to go into the house of the Lord, according to their appointment by the hand of Aaron their father, as the Lord God of Israel commanded.

The Rest of the Levites

20And for the sons of Levi that were left, even for the sons of Ambram, Sobael: for the sons of Sobael, Jedia. 21For Raabia, the chief was Isaari, 22and for Isaari, Salomoth: for the sons of Salomoth, Jath. 23The sons of Ecdiu; Amadia the second, Jaziel the third, Jecmoam the fourth. 24For the sons of Oziel, Micha: the sons of Micha; Samer. 25The brother of Micha; Isia, the son of Isia; Zacharia. 26The sons of Merari, Mooli, and Musi: the sons of Ozia, 27That is, the sons of Merari by Ozia, - his sons were Isoam, and Sacchur, and Abai. 28To Mooli were born Eleazar, and Ithamar; and Eleazar died, and had no sons. 29For Kis; the sons of Kis; Jerameel. 30And the sons of Musi; Mooli, and Eder, and Jerimoth. These were the sons of the Levites according to the houses of their families. 31And they also received lots as their brethren the sons of Aaron before the king; Sadoc also, and Achimelech, and the chiefs of the families of the priests and of the Levites, principal heads of families, even as their younger brethren.
