6 David divided them into divisions aaccording to the sons of Levi: Gershon, Kohath, and Merari.
7 Of the Gershonites were 1Ladan and Shimei.
10 The sons of Shimei were Jahath, 1Zina, Jeush and Beriah. These four were the sons of Shimei.
11 Jahath was the first and Zizah the second; but Jeush and Beriah did not have many sons, so they became a father’s household, one 1class.
12 The sons of Kohath were four: Amram, Izhar, Hebron and Uzziel.
13 aThe sons of Amram were Aaron and Moses. And bAaron was set apart to sanctify him as most holy, he and his sons forever, cto burn incense before the Lord, to minister to Him and to bless in His name forever.
14 But as for aMoses the man of God, his sons were named among the tribe of Levi.
17 The 1son of Eliezer was Rehabiah the chief; and Eliezer had no other sons, but the sons of Rehabiah were very many.
21 The sons of Merari were Mahli and Mushi. The sons of Mahli were Eleazar and Kish.
24 aThese were the sons of Levi according to their fathers’ households, even the heads of the fathers’ households of those of them who were 1counted, in the number of names by their 2census, doing the work for the service of the house of the Lord, bfrom twenty years old and upward.
25 For David said, “The Lord God of Israel ahas given rest to His people, and He dwells in Jerusalem forever.
26 “Also, athe Levites will no longer need to carry the tabernacle and all its utensils for its service.”
28 For their office is 1to assist the sons of Aaron with the service of the house of the Lord, in the courts and in the chambers and in the purifying of all holy things, even the work of the service of the house of God,
About New American Standard Bible: 1995 Update

Formalized language and outdated words and phrases have been replaced with their contemporary counterparts. In short, the 1995 NASB is a Bible translation that is very conducive to word-by-word study and is also able to be read (and understood) by the whole family.
