1 Now when athe wall was rebuilt and I had set up the doors, and the gatekeepers and the singers and the Levites were appointed,
3 Then I said to them, “Do not let the gates of Jerusalem be opened until the sun is hot, and while they are standing guard, let them shut and bolt the doors. Also appoint guards from the inhabitants of Jerusalem, each at his post, and each in front of his own house.”
5 aThen my God put it into my heart to assemble the nobles, the officials and the people to be enrolled by genealogies. Then I found the book of the genealogy of those who came up first 1in which I found the following record:
6 aThese are the 1people of the province who came up from the captivity of the exiles whom Nebuchadnezzar the king of Babylon had carried away, and who returned to Jerusalem and Judah, each to his city,
The number of men of the people of Israel:
15 the sons of 1Binnui, 648;
24 the sons of 1Hariph, 112;
25 the sons of 1Gibeon, 95;
28 the men of 1Beth-azmaveth, 42;
29 the men of 1Kiriath-jearim, Chephirah and Beeroth, 743;
36 the 1men of Jericho, 345;
43 The Levites: the sons of Jeshua, of Kadmiel, of the sons of 1Hodevah, 74.
47 the sons of Keros, the sons of 1Sia, the sons of Padon,
52 the sons of Besai, the sons of Meunim, the sons of 1Nephushesim,
54 the sons of 1Bazlith, the sons of Mehida, the sons of Harsha,
59 the sons of Shephatiah, the sons of Hattil, the sons of Pochereth-hazzebaim, the sons of 1Amon.
63 Of the priests: the sons of 1Hobaiah, the sons of Hakkoz, the sons of Barzillai, who took a wife of the daughters of Barzillai, the Gileadite, and was named after them.
66 The whole assembly together was 42,360,
67 besides their male and their female servants, 1of whom there were 7,337; and they had 245 male and female singers.
73 Now athe priests, the Levites, the gatekeepers, the singers, some of the people, the temple servants and all Israel, lived in their cities.
bAnd when the seventh month came, the sons of Israel were in their cities.
