1 Now it happened, when the wall was built, and I had set up the
doors, and the porters and the singers and the Levites were appointed,
2 that I gave my brother Hanani, and Hananiah the governor of the castle,
charge over Jerusalem; for he was a faithful man, and feared God above many.
3 I said to them, Donít let the gates of Jerusalem be opened until the sun
be hot; and while they stand on guard, let them shut the doors, and
bar you them: and appoint watches of the inhabitants of Jerusalem,
everyone in his watch, and everyone to be over against his house.
4 Now the city was wide and large; but the people were few therein, and
the houses were not built. 5 My God put into my heart to gather together
the nobles, and the rulers, and the people, that they might be reckoned by
genealogy. I found the book of the genealogy of those who came up at the
first, and I found written therein: 6 These are the children of the
province, who went up out of the captivity of those who had been carried
away, whom Nebuchadnezzar the king of Babylon had carried away, and who
returned to Jerusalem and to Judah, everyone to his city; 7 who came with
Zerubbabel, Jeshua, Nehemiah, Azariah, Raamiah, Nahamani, Mordecai, Bilshan,
Mispereth, Bigvai, Nehum, Baanah. The number of the men of the people of
Israel: 8 The children of Parosh, two thousand one hundred seventy-two.
9 The children of Shephatiah, three hundred seventy-two. 10 The

21 The children of Ater, of Hezekiah, ninety-eight. 22 The children of

hundred seventy-three. 40 The children of Immer, one thousand fifty-two.
41 The children of Pashhur, one thousand two hundred forty-seven.
42 The children of Harim, one thousand and seventeen. 43 The
Levites: the children of Jeshua, of Kadmiel, of the children of Hodevah,
seventy-four. 44 The singers: the children of Asaph, one hundred
forty-eight. 45 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, one hundred thirty-eight. 46 The Nethinim: the
children of Ziha, the children of Hasupha, the children of Tabbaoth,
47 the children of Keros, the children of Sia, the children of Padon,
48 the children of Lebana, the children of Hagaba, the children of Salmai,
49 the children of Hanan, the children of Giddel, the children of Gahar,
50 the children of Reaiah, the children of Rezin, the children of Nekoda,

57 The children of Solomonís servants: the children of Sotai, the children
of Sophereth, the children of Perida, 58 the children of Jaala, the
children of Darkon, the children of Giddel, 59 the children of Shephatiah,
the children of Hattil, the children of Pochereth-hazzebaim, the children of
Amon. 60 All the Nethinim, and the children of Solomonís servants, were
three hundred ninety-two. 61 These were those who went up from Tel-melah,
Tel Harsha, Cherub, Addon, and Immer; but they could not show their fathersí
houses, nor their seed, whether they were of Israel: 62 The children of
Delaiah, the children of Tobiah, the children of Nekoda, six hundred
forty-two. 63 Of the priests: the children of Hobaiah, the children of
Hakkoz, the children of Barzillai, who took a wife of the daughters of
Barzillai the Gileadite, and was called after their name. 64 These sought
their register among those who were reckoned by genealogy, but it was
not found: therefore were they deemed polluted and put from the priesthood.
65 The governor said to them, that they should not eat of the most holy
things, until there stood up a priest with Urim and Thummim. 66 The whole
assembly together was forty-two thousand three hundred sixty, 67 besides
their men-servants and their maid-servants, of whom there were seven thousand
three hundred thirty-seven: and they had two hundred forty-five singing men
and singing women. 68 Their horses were seven hundred thirty-six; their
mules, two hundred forty-five; 69 their camels, four hundred
thirty-five; their donkeys, six thousand seven hundred twenty.
70 Some from among the heads of fathersí houses gave to the work.
The governor gave to the treasury one thousand darics of gold, fifty basins,
and five hundred thirty priestsí garments. 71 Some of the heads of
fathersí houses gave into the treasury of the work twenty thousand
darics of gold, and two thousand two hundred minas of silver. 72 That
which the rest of the people gave was twenty thousand darics of gold, and two
thousand minas of silver, and sixty-seven priestsí garments. 73 So the
priests, and the Levites, and the porters, and the singers, and some of the
people, and the Nethinim, and all Israel, lived in their cities. When the
seventh month was come, the children of Israel were in their cities.
