The Levites in the days of Eliashib,

and Johanan,
and Jaddua,
were recorded chief of the fathers:
also the priests,
to the reign of Darius the Persian.


016:012:023
The sons of Levi,
the chief of the fathers,
were written in the book of the chronicles,
even until the days of Johanan the son of Eliashib.


016:012:024
And the chief of the Levites:
Hashabiah,
Sherebiah,
and Jeshua the son of Kadmiel,
with their brethren over against them,
to praise and to give thanks,
according to the commandment of David the man of God,
ward over against ward.


016:012:025
Mattaniah,
and Bakbukiah,
Obadiah,
Meshullam,
Talmon,
Akkub,
were porters keeping the ward at the thresholds of the gates.


016:012:026
These were in the days of Joiakim the son of Jeshua,
the son of Jozadak,
and in the days of Nehemiah the governor,
and of Ezra the priest,
the scribe.


016:012:027
And at the dedication of the wall of Jerusalem they sought the Levites out of all their places,
to bring them to Jerusalem,
to keep the dedication with gladness,
both with thanksgivings,
and with singing,
with cymbals,
psalteries,
and with harps.


016:012:028
And the sons of the singers gathered themselves together,
both out of the plain country round about Jerusalem,
and from the villages of Netophathi;


016:012:029
Also from the house of Gilgal,
and out of the fields of Geba and Azmaveth:
for the singers had builded them villages round about Jerusalem.


016:012:030
And the priests and the Levites purified themselves,
and purified the people,
and the gates,
and the wall.


016:012:031
Then I brought up the princes of Judah upon the wall,
and appointed two great companies of them that gave thanks,
whereof one went on the right hand upon the wall toward the dung gate:


016:012:032
And after them went Hoshaiah,
and half of the princes of Judah,


016:012:033
And Azariah,
Ezra,
and Meshullam,


016:012:034
Judah,
and Benjamin,
and Shemaiah,
and Jeremiah,


016:012:035
And certain of the priests' sons with trumpets;
namely,
Zechariah the son of Jonathan,
the son of Shemaiah,
the son of Mattaniah,
the son of Michaiah,
the son of Zaccur,
the son of Asaph:


016:012:036
And his brethren,
Shemaiah,
and Azarael,
Milalai,
Gilalai,
Maai,
Nethaneel,
and Judah,
Hanani,
with the musical instruments of David the man of God,
and Ezra the scribe before them.


016:012:037
And at the fountain gate,
which was over against them,
they went up by the stairs of the city of David,
at the going up of the wall,
above the house of David,
even unto the water gate eastward.


016:012:038
And the other company of them that gave thanks went over against them,
and I after them,
and the half of the people upon the wall,
from beyond the tower of the furnaces even unto the broad wall;


016:012:039
And from above the gate of Ephraim,
and above the old gate,
and above the fish gate,
and the tower of Hananeel,
and the tower of Meah,
even unto the sheep gate:
and they stood still in the prison gate.


016:012:040
So stood the two companies of them that gave thanks in the house of God,
and I,
and the half of the rulers with me:


016:012:041
And the priests;
Eliakim,
Maaseiah,
Miniamin,
Michaiah,
Elioenai,
Zechariah,
and Hananiah,
with trumpets;


016:012:042
And Maaseiah,
and Shemaiah,
and Eleazar,
and Uzzi,
and Jehohanan,
and Malchijah,
and Elam,
and Ezer.
And the singers sang loud,
with Jezrahiah their overseer.


016:012:043
Also that day they offered great sacrifices,
and rejoiced:
for God had made them rejoice with great joy:
the wives also and the children rejoiced:
so that the joy of Jerusalem was heard even afar off.


016:012:044
And at that time were some appointed over the chambers for the treasures,
for the offerings,
for the firstfruits,
and for the tithes,
to gather into them out of the fields of the cities the portions of the law for the priests and Levites:
for Judah rejoiced for the priests and for the Levites that waited.


016:012:045
And both the singers and the porters kept the ward of their God,
and the ward of the purification,
according to the commandment of David,
and of Solomon his son.


016:012:046
For in the days of David and Asaph of old there were chief of the singers,
and songs of praise and thanksgiving unto God.


016:012:047
And all Israel in the days of Zerubbabel,
and in the days of Nehemiah,
gave the portions of the singers and the porters,
every day his portion:
and they sanctified holy things unto the Levites;
and the Levites sanctified them unto the children of Aaron.
