1 H1732 So when David H2204 was old [H8804] H7646 and full [H8804] H3117 of days H8010 , he made Solomon H1121 his son H4427 king [H8686] H3478 over Israel.
2 H622 And he gathered together [H8799] H8269 all the princes H3478 of Israel H3548 , with the priests H3881 and the Levites.
3 H3881 Now the Levites H5608 were numbered [H8735] H1121 from the age H7970 of thirty H8141 years H4605 and upward H4557 : and their number H1538 by their polls H1397 , man by man H7970 , was thirty H8083 and eight H505 thousand.
4 H428 Of which H6242 , twenty H702 and four H505 thousand H5329 were to set forward [H8763] H4399 the work H1004 of the house H3068 of the LORD H8337 ; and six H505 thousand H7860 were officers [H8802] H8199 and judges [H8802] :
5 H702 Moreover four H505 thousand H7778 were porters H702 ; and four H505 thousand H1984 praised [H8764] H3068 the LORD H3627 with the instruments H6213 which I made [H8804] H1984 , said David, to praise [H8763] therewith .
6 H1732 And David H2505 divided [H8735] H4256 them into courses H1121 among the sons H3878 of Levi H1648 , namely, Gershon H6955 , Kohath H4847 , and Merari.
8 H1121 The sons H3936 of Laadan H7218 ; the chief H3171 was Jehiel H2241 , and Zetham H3100 , and Joel H7969 , three.
9 H1121 The sons H8096 of Shimei H8019 ; Shelomith [H8675] H8013 H2381 , and Haziel H2039 , and Haran H7969 , three H7218 . These were the chief H1 of the fathers H3936 of Laadan.
10 H1121 And the sons H8096 of Shimei H3189 were, Jahath H2126 , Zina H3266 , and Jeush H1283 , and Beriah H702 . These four H1121 were the sons H8096 of Shimei.
11 H3189 And Jahath H7218 was the chief H2125 , and Zizah H8145 the second H3266 : but Jeush H1283 and Beriah H7235 had not many [H8689] H1121 sons H259 ; therefore they were in one H6486 reckoning H1 , according to their father's H1004 house.
12 H1121 The sons H6955 of Kohath H6019 ; Amram H3324 , Izhar H2275 , Hebron H5816 , and Uzziel H702 , four.
13 H1121 The sons H6019 of Amram H175 ; Aaron H4872 and Moses H175 : and Aaron H914 was separated [H8735] H6942 , that he should sanctify [H8687] H6944 the most H6944 holy things H1121 , he and his sons H5704 for H5769 ever H6999 , to burn incense [H8687] H6440 before H3068 the LORD H8334 , to minister [H8763] H1288 unto him, and to bless [H8763] H8034 in his name H5704 for H5769 ever.
14 H4872 Now concerning Moses H376 the man H430 of God H1121 , his sons H7121 were named [H8735] H7626 of the tribe H3878 of Levi.
17 H1121 And the sons H461 of Eliezer H7345 were, Rehabiah H7218 the chief H461 . And Eliezer H312 had none other H1121 sons H1121 ; but the sons H7345 of Rehabiah H4605 were very H7235 many [H8804] .
19 H1121 Of the sons H2275 of Hebron H3404 ; Jeriah H7218 the first H568 , Amariah H8145 the second H3166 , Jahaziel H7992 the third H3360 , and Jekameam H7243 the fourth.
20 H1121 Of the sons H5816 of Uzziel H4318 ; Michah H7218 the first H3449 , and Jesiah H8145 the second.
21 H1121 The sons H4847 of Merari H4249 ; Mahli H4187 , and Mushi H1121 . The sons H4249 of Mahli H499 ; Eleazar H7027 , and Kish.
22 H499 And Eleazar H4191 died [H8799] H1121 , and had no sons H1323 , but daughters H251 : and their brethren H1121 the sons H7027 of Kish H5375 took [H8799] them.
24 H1121 These were the sons H3878 of Levi H1004 after the house H1 of their fathers H7218 ; even the chief H1 of the fathers H6485 , as they were counted [H8803] H4557 by number H8034 of names H1538 by their polls H6213 , that did [H8802] H4399 the work H5656 for the service H1004 of the house H3068 of the LORD H1121 , from the age H6242 of twenty H8141 years H4605 and upward.
25 H1732 For David H559 said [H8804] H3068 , The LORD H430 God H3478 of Israel H5117 hath given rest [H8689] H5971 unto his people H7931 , that they may dwell [H8799] H3389 in Jerusalem H5769 for ever:
26 H3881 And also unto the Levites H5375 ; they shall no more carry [H8800] H4908 the tabernacle H3627 , nor any vessels H5656 of it for the service thereof.
27 H314 For by the last H1697 words H1732 of David H3881 the Levites H4557 were numbered H6242 from twenty H8141 years H1121 old H4605 and above:
28 H4612 Because their office H3027 was to wait H1121 on the sons H175 of Aaron H5656 for the service H1004 of the house H3068 of the LORD H2691 , in the courts H3957 , and in the chambers H2893 , and in the purifying H6944 of all holy things H4639 , and the work H5656 of the service H1004 of the house H430 of God;
29 H3899 Both for the shewbread H4635 H5560 , and for the fine flour H4503 for meat offering H4682 , and for the unleavened H7550 cakes H4227 , and for that which is baked in the pan H7246 , and for that which is fried [H8716] H4884 , and for all manner of measure H4060 and size;
30 H5975 And to stand [H8800] H1242 every morning H3034 to thank [H8687] H1984 and praise [H8763] H3068 the LORD H6153 , and likewise at even;
31 H5927 And to offer [H8687] H5930 all burnt sacrifices H3068 unto the LORD H7676 in the sabbaths H2320 , in the new moons H4150 , and on the set feasts H4557 , by number H4941 , according to the order H8548 commanded unto them, continually H6440 before H3068 the LORD:
