Nehemyah  11 : 1 - 36

11 Now the princes of the people were living in Yerushalom; but the rest of the people cast lots to bring one out of every ten to live in Yerushalom, the holy city, while the other nine stayed in the other cities. 2 Moreover, the people blessed all the men who volunteered to live in Yerushalom.

3 And these are the heads of the province who lived in Yerushalom. (The rest of Isra'Al, the priests, the Levites, the temple servants, and the sons of the servants of Solʹo·mon, lived in the other cities of Judah, each one in his own possession in his city.

4 Also, there lived in Yerushalom some of the people of Judah and of Benjamin.) Of the people of Judah were A·thayʹah son of Uz·zyʹah son of Zech·a·ryʹah son of Am·a·ryʹah son of Sheph·a·tyʹah son of Ma·halʹa·lel of the sons of Peʹrez, 5 and Ma·a·seyʹah son of Barʹuch son of Col·hoʹzeh son of Ha·zayʹah son of A·dayʹah son of Joiʹa·rib son of Zech·a·ryʹah son of the She·laʹnite. 6 All the sons of Peʹrez who were dwelling in Yerushalom were 468 capable men.

7 And these were the people of Benjamin: Salʹlu son of Me·shulʹlam son of Joʹed son of Pe·dayʹah son of Ko·layʹah son of Ma·a·seyʹah son of Ithʹi·Al son of Ye·shaʹyah, 8 and after him Gab·baʹi and Sal·laʹi, 928; 9 and Yo'Al the son of Zichʹri was their overseer, and Judah the son of Has·se·nuʹah was second in charge of the city.

10 Of the priests: Ye·daʹyah son of Joiʹa·rib, Jaʹchin, 11 Se·rayʹah son of Hil·kyʹah son of Me·shulʹlam son of Zaʹdok son of Me·raʹioth son of A·hiʹtub, a leader of the house of the true God, 12 and their brothers who did the work of the house, 822; and A·dayʹah son of Ye·roʹham son of Pel·a·lyʹah son of Amʹzi son of Zech·a·ryʹah son of Pashʹhur son of Mal·chiʹyah, 13 and his brothers, heads of paternal houses, 242; and A·mashʹsai son of Azʹar·Al son of Ahʹzai son of Me·shilʹle·moth son of Imʹmer, 14 and their brothers who were mighty, courageous men, 128; and their overseer was Zabʹdi·Al, a member of a prominent family.

15 And of the Levites: She·mayʹah son of Hasʹshub son of Az·riʹkam son of Hash·a·byʹah son of Bunʹni, 16 and Shabʹbe·thai and Joʹza·bad, of the heads of the Levites, who were in charge of the outside business of the house of the true God; 17 and Mat·ta·nyʹah, son of Miʹcah son of Zabʹdi son of Aʹsaph, the conductor of the singing, who led the praises during prayer, and Bak·bu·kyʹah, the second of his brothers, and Abʹda son of Sham·muʹa son of Gaʹlal son of Ye·duʹthun. 18 All the Levites in the holy city were 284.

19 And the gatekeepers were Akʹkub, Talʹmon, and their brothers who kept guard in the gates, 172.

20 The rest of Isra'Al, the priests, and the Levites were in all the other cities of Judah, each in his own inherited property. 21 The temple servants were living in Oʹphel, and Ziʹha and Gishʹpa were in charge of the temple servants.

22 The overseer of the Levites in Yerushalom was Uzʹzi son of Baʹni son of Hash·a·byʹah son of Mat·ta·nyʹah son of Miʹca, of the sons of Aʹsaph, the singers; he was in charge of the work of the house of the true God. 23 For there was a royal order in their behalf, and there was a fixed provision for the singers as each day required. 24 And Peth·a·hyʹah son of Me·shezʹa·bel of the sons of Zeʹrah son of Judah was the king’s adviser for every matter of the people.

25 Regarding the settlements with their fields, some of the people of Judah lived in Kirʹi·ath-arʹba and its dependent towns, in Diʹbon and its dependent towns, in Ye·kabʹze·Al and its settlements, 26 in Yeshʹu·a, in Mo·laʹdah, in Beth-pelʹet, 27 in Haʹzar-shuʹal, in Beʹer-sheʹba and its dependent towns, 28 in Zikʹlag, in Me·coʹnah and its dependent towns, 29 in En-rimʹmon, in Zoʹrah, and in Jarʹmuth, 30 in Za·noʹah, in A·dulʹlam and their settlements, in Laʹchish and its fields, and in A·zeʹkah and its dependent towns. They settled from Beʹer-sheʹba clear to the Valley of Hinʹnom.

31 And the people of Benjamin were in Geʹba, Michʹmash, Aiʹja, Bethʹel and its dependent towns, 32 Anʹa·thoth, Nob, A·na·nyʹah, 33 Haʹzor, Raʹmah, Gitʹta·im, 34 Haʹdid, Ze·boʹim, Ne·balʹlat, 35 Lod, and Oʹno, the valley of the craftsmen. 36 And some divisions of the Levites from Judah were assigned to Benjamin.
