Over the Aaronites, Zadok. 18 Over Judah, Elihu, one of the brethren of David. Over those of Issachar, Omri, the son of Michael. 19 Over those of Zebulun, Ishmaiah, the son of Obadiah. Over those of Naphtali, Jerimoth, the son of Azriel. 20 Over the sons of Ephraim, Hosea, the son of Azaziah. Over the half tribe of Manasseh, Joel, the son of Pedaiah. 21 Over the other half tribe of Manasseh in Gilead, Iddo, the son of Zechariah. Over those of Benjamin, Jaasiel, the son of Abner. 22 And over Dan, Azareel, the son of Jeroham. These were the princes of the tribes of Israel. 23 But David did not number those twenty years old and under because the LORD had said he would multiply Israel like to the stars of the heavens. 24 Joab, the son of Zeruiah, had begun to number, but he did not finish; and because of this, wrath fell upon Israel; and thus the number was not put in the account of the chronicles of King David. 25 And Azmaveth, the son of Adiel, had charge of the king’s treasures and of the treasures of the fields, of the cities, and of the villages, and of the castles, was Jehonathan, the son of Uzziah; 26 and over those that did the work of the tillage of the ground in the fields was Ezri the son of Chelub; 27 and over the vineyards was Shimei, the Ramathite; over the increase of the vineyards for the wine cellars was Zabdi, the Shiphmite; 28 and over the olive trees and the sycamore trees that were in the low plains was Baalhanan, the Gederite; and over the cellars of oil, Joash; 29 and over the cows that fed in Sharon was Shitrai, the Sharonite; and over the cows that were in the valleys was Shaphat, the son of Adlai; 30 over the camels, Obil, the Ishmaelite; and over the asses, Jehdeiah, the Meronothite; 31 and over the sheep was Jaziz, the Hagerite. All these were the princes of the substance which was King David’s. 32 And Jonathan, David’s uncle, was a counsellor, a wise man, and a scribe; and Jehiel the son of Hachmoni had charge of the king’s sons. 33 Ahithophel was the king’s counsellor; and Hushai, the Archite, was the king’s companion. 34 And after Ahithophel was Jehoiada, the son of Benaiah, and Abiathar. And Joab was the general of the king’s army.
