1 Chronicles Chapter 24 (Index)

Chapters: 1





























001  Now these are the divisions of the sons of Aaron. The sons of Aaron; Nadab, and Abihu, Eleazar, and Ithamar.

002  But Nadab and Abihu died before their father, and had no children: therefore Eleazar and Ithamar executed the priest's office.

003  And David distributed them, both Zadok of the sons of Eleazar, and Ahimelech of the sons of Ithamar, according to their offices in their service.

004  And there were more chief men found of the sons of Eleazar than of the sons of Ithamar; and thus were they divided. Among the sons of Eleazar there were sixteen chief men of the house of their fathers, and eight among the sons of Ithamar according to the house of their fathers.

005  Thus were they divided by lot, one sort with another; for the governors of the sanctuary, and governors of the house of God, were of the sons of Eleazar, and of the sons of Ithamar.

006  And Shemaiah the son of Nethaneel the scribe, one of the Levites, wrote them before the king, and the princes, and Zadok the priest, and Ahimelech the son of Abiathar, and before the chief of the fathers of the priests and Levites: one principal household being taken for Eleazar, and one taken for Ithamar.

007  Now the first lot came forth to Jehoiarib, the second to Jedaiah,

008  The third to Harim, the fourth to Seorim,

009  The fifth to Malchijah, the sixth to Mijamin,

010  The seventh to Hakkoz, the eighth to Abijah,

011  The ninth to Jeshuah, the tenth to Shecaniah,

012  The eleventh to Eliashib, the twelfth to Jakim,

013  The thirteenth to Huppah, the fourteenth to Jeshebeab,

014  The fifteenth to Bilgah, the sixteenth to Immer,

015  The seventeenth to Hezir, the eighteenth to Aphses,

016  The nineteenth to Pethahiah, the twentieth to Jehezekel,

017  The one and twentieth to Jachin, the two and twentieth to Gamul,

018  The three and twentieth to Delaiah, the four and twentieth to Maaziah.

019  These were the orderings of them in their service to come into the house of the LORD, according to their manner, under Aaron their father, as the LORD God of Israel had commanded him.

020  And the rest of the sons of Levi were these: Of the sons of Amram; Shubael: of the sons of Shubael; Jehdeiah.

021  Concerning Rehabiah: of the sons of Rehabiah, the first was Isshiah.

022  Of the Izharites; Shelomoth: of the sons of Shelomoth; Jahath.

023  And the sons of Hebron; Jeriah the first, Amariah the second, Jahaziel the third, Jekameam the fourth.

024  Of the sons of Uzziel; Michah: of the sons of Michah; Shamir.

025  The brother of Michah was Isshiah: of the sons of Isshiah; Zechariah.

026  The sons of Merari were Mahli and Mushi: the sons of Jaaziah; Beno.

027  The sons of Merari by Jaaziah; Beno, and Shoham, and Zaccur, and Ibri.

028  Of Mahli came Eleazar, who had no sons.

029  Concerning Kish: the son of Kish was Jerahmeel.

030  The sons also of Mushi; Mahli, and Eder, and Jerimoth. These were the sons of the Levites after the house of their fathers.

031  These likewise cast lots over against their brethren the sons of Aaron in the presence of David the king, and Zadok, and Ahimelech, and the chief of the fathers of the priests and Levites, even the principal fathers over against their younger brethren.
