7:1 Now it came to pass, when the wall was built, and I had set
up the doors, and the porters and the singers and the Levites
7:2 That I gave my brother Hanani, and Hananiah the ruler of the
palace, charge over Jerusalem: for he [was] a faithful man, and
feared God above many.
7:3 And I said to them, Let not the gates of Jerusalem be opened
until the sun shall be hot; and while they stand by, let them
shut the doors, and bar [them]: and appoint watches of the
inhabitants of Jerusalem, every one in his watch, and every one
[to be] over against his house.
7:4 Now the city [was] large and great: but the people in it
[were] few, and the houses [were] not built.
7:5 And my God put into my heart to assemble the nobles, and the
rulers, and the people, that they might be reckoned by
genealogy. And I found a register of the genealogy of them who
came up at the first, and found written in it,
7:6 These [are] the children of the province, that went up out
of the captivity, of those that had been carried away, whom
Nebuchadnezzar the king of Babylon had carried away, and came
again to Jerusalem and to Judah, every one to his city;

7:59 The children of Shephatiah, the children of Hattil, the

7:60 All the Nethinims, and the children of Solomon's servants,
[were] three hundred and ninety two.
7:61 And these [were] they who went up [also] from Tel-mela,
Tel-haresha, Cherub, Addon, and Immer: but they could not show
their fathers house, nor their seed, whether they [were] of
7:62 The children of Delaiah, the children of Tobiah, the
children of Nekoda, six hundred and forty two.
7:63 And of the priests: the children of Habaiah, the children
of Koz, the children of Barzillai, who took [one] of the
daughters of Barzillai the Gileadite for a wife, and was called
after their name.
7:64 These sought their register [among] those that were
reckoned by genealogy, but it was not found: therefore were
they, as polluted, put from the priesthood.
7:65 And the Tirshatha said to them, that they should not eat of
the most holy things, till there should stand [up] a priest
with Urim and Thummim.
7:66 The whole congregation together [was] forty two thousand
three hundred and sixty.
7:67 Besides their man-servants and their maid-servants, of whom
[there were] seven thousand three hundred and thirty seven: and
they had two hundred and forty five singing-men and

two hundred and forty five:

basins, five hundred and thirty priests' garments.
7:71 And [some] of the chief of the fathers gave to the treasure
of the work, twenty thousand drams of gold, and two thousand

singers, and [some] of the people, and the Nethinims, and all
Israel, dwelt in their cities; and when the seventh month came,
the children of Israel [were] in their cities.
