Nehemiah Chapter 7 (Index)

Chapters: 1













001  Now 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,

002  That I gave my brother Hanani, and Hananiah the ruler of the palace, charge over Jerusalem: for he was a faithful man, and feared God above many.

003  And I said unto them, Let not the gates of Jerusalem be opened until the sun be hot; and while they stand by, let them shut the doors, and bar them: and appoint watches of the inhabitants of Jerusalem, every one in his watch, and every one to be over against his house.

004  Now the city was large and great: but the people were few therein, and the houses were not builded.

005  And my God put into mine heart to gather together the nobles, and the rulers, and the people, that they might be reckoned by genealogy. And I found a register of the genealogy of them which came up at the first, and found written therein,

006  These are the children of the province, that went up out of the captivity, of those that had been carried away, whom Nebuchadnezzar the king of Babylon had carried away, and came again to Jerusalem and to Judah, every one unto his city;

007  Who came with Zerubbabel, Jeshua, Nehemiah, Azariah, Raamiah, Nahamani, Mordecai, Bilshan, Mispereth, Bigvai, Nehum, Baanah. The number, I say, of the men of the people of Israel was this;

008  The children of Parosh, two thousand an hundred seventy and two.

009  The children of Shephatiah, three hundred seventy and two.

010  The children of Arah, six hundred fifty and two.

011  The children of Pahathmoab, of the children of Jeshua and Joab, two thousand and eight hundred and eighteen.

012  The children of Elam, a thousand two hundred fifty and four.

013  The children of Zattu, eight hundred forty and five.

014  The children of Zaccai, seven hundred and threescore.

015  The children of Binnui, six hundred forty and eight.

016  The children of Bebai, six hundred twenty and eight.

017  The children of Azgad, two thousand three hundred twenty and two.

018  The children of Adonikam, six hundred threescore and seven.

019  The children of Bigvai, two thousand threescore and seven.

023  The children of Bezai, three hundred twenty and four.

024  The children of Hariph, an hundred and twelve.

025  The children of Gibeon, ninety and five.

026  The men of Bethlehem and Netophah, an hundred fourscore and eight.

027  The men of Anathoth, an hundred twenty and eight.

028  The men of Bethazmaveth, forty and two.

029  The men of Kirjathjearim, Chephirah, and Beeroth, seven hundred forty and three.

030  The men of Ramah and Gaba, six hundred twenty and one.

031  The men of Michmas, an hundred and twenty and two.

032  The men of Bethel and Ai, an hundred twenty and three.

033  The men of the other Nebo, fifty and two.

034  The children of the other Elam, a thousand two hundred fifty and four.

035  The children of Harim, three hundred and twenty.

036  The children of Jericho, three hundred forty and five.

037  The children of Lod, Hadid, and Ono, seven hundred twenty and one.

038  The children of Senaah, three thousand nine hundred and thirty.

039  The priests: the children of Jedaiah, of the house of Jeshua, nine hundred seventy and three.

040  The children of Immer, a thousand fifty and two.

041  The children of Pashur, a thousand two hundred forty and seven.

042  The children of Harim, a thousand and seventeen.

043  The Levites: the children of Jeshua, of Kadmiel, and of the children of Hodevah, seventy and four.

044  The singers: the children of Asaph, an hundred forty and eight.

045  The porters: the children of Shallum, the children of Ater, the children of Talmon, the children of Akkub, the children of Hatita, the children of Shobai, an hundred thirty and eight.

046  The Nethinims: the children of Ziha, the children of Hashupha, the children of Tabbaoth,

047  The children of Keros, the children of Sia, the children of Padon,

048  The children of Lebana, the children of Hagaba, the children of Shalmai,

049  The children of Hanan, the children of Giddel, the children of Gahar,

050  The children of Reaiah, the children of Rezin, the children of Nekoda,

051  The children of Gazzam, the children of Uzza, the children of Phaseah,

052  The children of Besai, the children of Meunim, the children of Nephishesim,

053  The children of Bakbuk, the children of Hakupha, the children of Harhur,

054  The children of Bazlith, the children of Mehida, the children of Harsha,

055  The children of Barkos, the children of Sisera, the children of Tamah,

056  The children of Neziah, the children of Hatipha.

057  The children of Solomon's servants: the children of Sotai, the children of Sophereth, the children of Perida,

058  The children of Jaala, the children of Darkon, the children of Giddel,

059  The children of Shephatiah, the children of Hattil, the children of Pochereth of Zebaim, the children of Amon.

060  All the Nethinims, and the children of Solomon's servants, were three hundred ninety and two.

061  And these were they which went 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.

062  The children of Delaiah, the children of Tobiah, the children of Nekoda, six hundred forty and two.

063  And of the priests: the children of Habaiah, the children of Koz, the children of Barzillai, which took one of the daughters of Barzillai the Gileadite to wife, and was called after their name.

064  These sought their register among those that were reckoned by genealogy, but it was not found: therefore were they, as polluted, put from the priesthood.

065  And the Tirshatha said unto them, that they should not eat of the most holy things, till there stood up a priest with Urim and Thummim.

066  The whole congregation together was forty and two thousand three hundred and threescore,

067  Beside their manservants and their maidservants, of whom there were seven thousand three hundred thirty and seven: and they had two hundred forty and five singing men and singing women.

068  Their horses, seven hundred thirty and six: their mules, two hundred forty and five:

069  Their camels, four hundred thirty and five: six thousand seven hundred and twenty asses.

070  And some of the chief of the fathers gave unto the work. The Tirshatha gave to the treasure a thousand drams of gold, fifty basins, five hundred and thirty priests' garments.

071  And some of the chief of the fathers gave to the treasure of the work twenty thousand drams of gold, and two thousand and two hundred pound of silver.

072  And that which the rest of the people gave was twenty thousand drams of gold, and two thousand pound of silver, and threescore and seven priests' garments.

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