Levitical Families

14 And of the Leuites: Shemaiah the sonne of Hasshub, the sonne of Azrikam, the sonne of Hashabiah, of the sonnes of Merari.

15 And Bakbakkar, Heresh, and Galal: and Mattaniah the sonne of Micah, the sonne of Zichri, the sonne of Asaph.

16 And Obadiah the sonne of Shemaiah, the sonne of Galal, the sonne of Ieduthun: and Berechiah the sonne of Asa, the sonne of Elkanah, that dwelt in the villages of the Netophathites.

17 And the Porters were Shallum, and Akkub, and Talmon, and Ahiman, and their brethren: Shallum was the chiefe.

18 (Who hitherto waited in the kings gate Eastward) they were Porters in the companies of the children of Leui.

19 And Shallum the sonne of Kore, the sonne of Ebiasaph, the sonne of Korah, and his brethren (of the house of his father) the Korahites, were ouer the worke of the seruice, keepers of the gates of the Tabernacle: and their fathers being ouer the hoste of the Lord, were keepers of the entrie.

20 And Phinehas the sonne of Eleazar was the ruler ouer them in time past, and the Lord was with him.

21 And Zechariah the sonne of Meshelemiah, was porter of the doore of the Tabernacle of the Congregation.

22 All these which were chosen to be porters in the gates, were two hundred and twelue. These were reckoned by their genealogie in their villages: whom Dauid and Samuel the Seer, did ordeine in their set office.

23 So they and their children had the ouersight of the gates of the house of the Lord, namely, the house of the Tabernacle, by wards.

24 In foure quarters were the porters: toward the East, West, North, and South.

25 And their brethren, which were in their villages, were to come after seuen dayes, from time to time with them.

26 For these Leuites, the foure chiefe porters, were in their set office, and were ouer the chambers and treasuries of the house of God.

27 ΒΆ And they lodged round about the house of God, because the charge was vpon them, and the opening thereof euery morning, perteined to them.

28 And certaine of them had the charge of the ministring vessels, that they should bring them in and out by tale.

29 Some of them also were appointed to ouersee the vessels, and all the instruments of the Sanctuarie, and the fine floure, and the wine, and the oyle, and the frankincense, and the spices.

30 And some of the sonnes of the Priests made the oyntment of the spices.

31 And Mattithiah, one of the Leuites (who was the first borne of Shallum the Korahite) had the set office ouer the things that were made in the pannes.

32 And other of their brethren of the sonnes of the Kohathites, were ouer the Shew-bread to prepare it euery Sabbath.

33 And these are the singers, chiefe of the fathers of the Leuites, who remayning in the chambers, were free: for they were imployed in that worke, day and night.

34 These chiefe fathers of the Leuites, were chiefe throughout their generations; these dwelt at Ierusalem.

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life (John 3:16).
