1 Chronicles 23


1  So when David1732 was old2204 and full7646 of days,3117 he made4427 853 Solomon8010 his son1121 king over5921 Israel.3478

2  And he gathered together622 853 all3605 the princes8269 of Israel,3478 with the priests3548 and the Levites.3881

3  Now the Levites3881 were numbered5608 from the age4480 1121 of thirty7970 years8141 and upward:4605 and their number4557 by their polls,1538 man by man,1397 was1961 thirty7970 and eight8083 thousand.505

4  Of which,4480 428 twenty6242 and four702 thousand505 were to set forward5329 5921 the work4399 of the house1004 of the LORD;3068 and six8337 thousand505 were officers7860 and judges:8199

5  Moreover four702 thousand505 were porters;7778 and four702 thousand505 praised1984 the LORD3068 with the instruments3627 which834 I made,6213 said David, to praise1984 therewith.

6  And David1732 divided2505 them into courses4256 among the sons1121 of Levi,3878 namely, Gershon,1648 Kohath,6955 and Merari.4847

7  Of the Gershonites1649 were, Laadan,3936 and Shimei.8096

8  The sons1121 of Laadan;3936 the chief7218 was Jehiel,3171 and Zetham,2241 and Joel,3100 three.7969

9  The sons1121 of Shimei;8096 Shelomith,8013 and Haziel,2381 and Haran,2039 three.7969 These428 were the chief7218 of the fathers1 of Laadan.3936

10  And the sons1121 of Shimei8096 were, Jahath,3189 Zina,2126 and Jeush,3266 and Beriah.1283 These428 four702 were the sons1121 of Shimei.8096

11  And Jahath3189 was1961 the chief,7218 and Zizah2125 the second:8145 but Jeush3266 and Beriah1283 had not many7235 3808 sons;1121 therefore they were1961 in one259 reckoning,6486 according to their father's1 house.1004

12  The sons1121 of Kohath;6955 Amram,6019 Izhar,3324 Hebron,2275 and Uzziel,5816 four.702

13  The sons1121 of Amram;6019 Aaron175 and Moses:4872 and Aaron175 was separated,914 that he should sanctify6942 the most holy things,6944 6944 he1931 and his sons1121 forever,5704 5769 to burn incense6999 before6440 the LORD,3068 to minister8334 unto him, and to bless1288 in his name8034 forever.5704 5769

14  Now concerning Moses4872 the man376 of God,430 his sons1121 were named7121 of5921 the tribe7626 of Levi.3878

15  The sons1121 of Moses4872 were, Gershom,1648 and Eliezer.461

16  Of the sons1121 of Gershom,1648 Shebuel7619 was the chief.7218

17  And the sons1121 of Eliezer461 were, Rehabiah7345 the chief.7218 And Eliezer461 had1961 none3808 other312 sons;1121 but the sons1121 of Rehabiah7345 were very many.7235 4605

18  Of the sons1121 of Izhar;3324 Shelomith8013 the chief.7218

19  Of the sons1121 of Hebron;2275 Jeriah3404 the first,7218 Amariah568 the second,8145 Jahaziel3166 the third,7992 and Jekameam3360 the fourth.7243

20  Of the sons1121 of Uzziel;5816 Michah4318 the first,7218 and Jesiah3449 the second.8145

21  The sons1121 of Merari;4847 Mahli,4249 and Mushi.4187 The sons1121 of Mahli;4249 Eleazar,499 and Kish.7027

22  And Eleazar499 died,4191 and had1961 no3808 sons,1121 but3588 518 daughters:1323 and their brethren251 the sons1121 of Kish7027 took5375 them.

23  The sons1121 of Mushi;4187 Mahli,4249 and Eder,5740 and Jeremoth,3406 three.7969

24  These428 were the sons1121 of Levi3878 after the house1004 of their fathers;1 even the chief7218 of the fathers,1 as they were counted6485 by number4557 of names8034 by their polls,1538 that did6213 the work4399 for the service5656 of the house1004 of the LORD,3068 from the age4480 1121 of twenty6242 years8141 and upward.4605

25  For3588 David1732 said,559 The LORD3068 God430 of Israel3478 hath given rest5117 unto his people,5971 that they may dwell7931 in Jerusalem3389 forever:5704 5769

26  And also1571 unto the Levites;3881 they shall no369 more carry5375 853 the tabernacle,4908 nor any3605 vessels3627 of it for the service5656 thereof.

27  For3588 by the last314 words1697 of David1732 the Levites1121 3881 were numbered4557 from twenty years old4480 1121 6242 8141 and above:4605

28  Because3588 their office4612 was to wait on3027 the sons1121 of Aaron175 for the service5656 of the house1004 of the LORD,3068 in5921 the courts,2691 and in5921 the chambers,3957 and in5921 the purifying2893 of all3605 holy things,6944 and the work4639 of the service5656 of the house1004 of God;430

29  Both for the shewbread,3899 4635 and for the fine flour5560 for meat offering,4503 and for the unleavened4682 cakes,7550 and for that which is baked in the pan,4227 and for that which is fried,7246 and for all manner3605 of measure4884 and size;4060

30  And to stand5975 every morning1242 1242 to thank3034 and praise1984 the LORD,3068 and likewise3651 at even;6153

31  And to offer5927 all3605 burnt sacrifices5930 unto the LORD3068 in the sabbaths,7676 in the new moons,2320 and on the set feasts,4150 by number,4557 according to the order4941 commanded unto5921 them, continually8548 before6440 the LORD:3068

32  And that they should keep8104 853 the charge4931 of the tabernacle168 of the congregation,4150 and the charge4931 of the holy6944 place, and the charge4931 of the sons1121 of Aaron175 their brethren,251 in the service5656 of the house1004 of the LORD.3068


1 καὶ Δαυιδ πρεσβύτης καὶ πλήρης ἡμερῶν καὶ ἐβασίλευσεν Σαλωμων τὸν υἱὸν αὐτοῦ ἀντ᾽ αὐτοῦ ἐπὶ Ισραηλ

2 καὶ συνήγαγεν τοὺς πάντας ἄρχοντας Ισραηλ καὶ τοὺς ἱερεῖς καὶ τοὺς Λευίτας

3 καὶ ἠριθμήθησαν οἱ Λευῖται ἀπὸ τριακονταετοῦς καὶ ἐπάνω καὶ ἐγένετο ὁ ἀριθμὸς αὐτῶν κατὰ κεφαλὴν αὐτῶν εἰς ἄνδρας τριάκοντα καὶ ὀκτὼ χιλιάδας

4 ἀπὸ τούτων ἐργοδιῶκται ἐπὶ τὰ ἔργα οἴκου κυρίου εἴκοσι τέσσαρες χιλιάδες καὶ γραμματεῖς καὶ κριταὶ ἑξακισχίλιοι

5 καὶ τέσσαρες χιλιάδες πυλωροὶ καὶ τέσσαρες χιλιάδες αἰνοῦντες τῷ κυρίῳ ἐν τοῖς ὀργάνοις οἷς ἐποίησεν τοῦ αἰνεῖν τῷ κυρίῳ

6 καὶ διεῖλεν αὐτοὺς Δαυιδ ἐφημερίας τοῖς υἱοῖς Λευι τῷ Γεδσων Κααθ Μεραρι

7 καὶ τῷ Παροσωμ τῷ Εδαν καὶ τῷ Σεμεϊ

8 υἱοὶ τῷ Εδαν ὁ ἄρχων Ιιηλ καὶ Ζεθομ καὶ Ιωηλ τρεῖς

10 καὶ τοῖς υἱοῖς Σεμεϊ Ιεθ καὶ Ζιζα καὶ Ιωας καὶ Βερια οὗτοι υἱοὶ Σεμεϊ τέσσαρες

11 καὶ ἦν Ιεθ ὁ ἄρχων καὶ Ζιζα ὁ δεύτερος καὶ Ιωας καὶ Βερια οὐκ ἐπλήθυναν υἱοὺς καὶ ἐγένοντο εἰς οἶκον πατριᾶς εἰς ἐπίσκεψιν μίαν

12 υἱοὶ Κααθ Αμβραμ Ισσααρ Χεβρων Οζιηλ τέσσαρες

13 υἱοὶ Αμβραμ Ααρων καὶ Μωυσῆς καὶ διεστάλη Ααρων τοῦ ἁγιασθῆναι ἅγια ἁγίων αὐτὸς καὶ οἱ υἱοὶ αὐτοῦ ἕως αἰῶνος τοῦ θυμιᾶν ἐναντίον τοῦ κυρίου λειτουργεῖν καὶ ἐπεύχεσθαι ἐπὶ τῷ ὀνόματι αὐτοῦ ἕως αἰῶνος

14 καὶ Μωυσῆς ἄνθρωπος τοῦ θεοῦ υἱοὶ αὐτοῦ ἐκλήθησαν εἰς φυλὴν τοῦ Λευι

15 υἱοὶ Μωυσῆ Γηρσαμ καὶ Ελιεζερ

16 υἱοὶ Γηρσαμ Σουβαηλ ὁ ἄρχων

17 καὶ ἦσαν υἱοὶ τῷ Ελιεζερ Ρααβια ὁ ἄρχων καὶ οὐκ ἦσαν τῷ Ελιεζερ υἱοὶ ἕτεροι καὶ υἱοὶ Ρααβια ηὐξήθησαν εἰς ὕψος

18 υἱοὶ Ισσααρ Σαλωμωθ ὁ ἄρχων

19 υἱοὶ Χεβρων Ιδουδ ὁ ἄρχων Αμαδια ὁ δεύτερος Οζιηλ ὁ τρίτος Ικεμιας ὁ τέταρτος

20 υἱοὶ Οζιηλ Μιχας ὁ ἄρχων καὶ Ισια ὁ δεύτερος

21 υἱοὶ Μεραρι Μοολι καὶ Μουσι υἱοὶ Μοολι Ελεαζαρ καὶ Κις

22 καὶ ἀπέθανεν Ελεαζαρ καὶ οὐκ ἦσαν αὐτῷ υἱοὶ ἀλλ᾽ ἢ θυγατέρες καὶ ἔλαβον αὐτὰς υἱοὶ Κις ἀδελφοὶ αὐτῶν

23 υἱοὶ Μουσι Μοολι καὶ Εδερ καὶ Ιαριμωθ τρεῖς

24 οὗτοι υἱοὶ Λευι κατ᾽ οἴκους πατριῶν αὐτῶν ἄρχοντες τῶν πατριῶν αὐτῶν κατὰ τὴν ἐπίσκεψιν αὐτῶν κατὰ τὸν ἀριθμὸν ὀνομάτων αὐτῶν κατὰ κεφαλὴν αὐτῶν ποιοῦντες τὰ ἔργα λειτουργίας οἴκου κυρίου ἀπὸ εἰκοσαετοῦς καὶ ἐπάνω

25 ὅτι εἶπεν Δαυιδ κατέπαυσεν κύριος ὁ θεὸς Ισραηλ τῷ λαῷ αὐτοῦ καὶ κατεσκήνωσεν ἐν Ιερουσαλημ ἕως αἰῶνος

26 καὶ οἱ Λευῖται οὐκ ἦσαν αἴροντες τὴν σκηνὴν καὶ τὰ πάντα σκεύη αὐτῆς εἰς τὴν λειτουργίαν αὐτῆς

27 ὅτι ἐν τοῖς λόγοις Δαυιδ τοῖς ἐσχάτοις ἐστὶν ὁ ἀριθμὸς υἱῶν Λευι ἀπὸ εἰκοσαετοῦς καὶ ἐπάνω

28 ὅτι ἔστησεν αὐτοὺς ἐπὶ χεῖρα Ααρων τοῦ λειτουργεῖν ἐν οἴκῳ κυρίου ἐπὶ τὰς αὐλὰς καὶ ἐπὶ τὰ παστοφόρια καὶ ἐπὶ τὸν καθαρισμὸν τῶν πάντων ἁγίων καὶ ἐπὶ τὰ ἔργα λειτουργίας οἴκου τοῦ θεοῦ

29 εἰς τοὺς ἄρτους τῆς προθέσεως εἰς τὴν σεμίδαλιν τῆς θυσίας καὶ εἰς τὰ λάγανα τὰ ἄζυμα καὶ εἰς τήγανον καὶ εἰς τὴν πεφυραμένην καὶ εἰς πᾶν μέτρον

30 καὶ τοῦ στῆναι πρωὶ τοῦ αἰνεῖν ἐξομολογεῖσθαι τῷ κυρίῳ καὶ οὕτως τὸ ἑσπέρας

31 καὶ ἐπὶ πάντων τῶν ἀναφερομένων ὁλοκαυτωμάτων τῷ κυρίῳ ἐν τοῖς σαββάτοις καὶ ἐν ταῖς νεομηνίαις καὶ ἐν ταῖς ἑορταῖς κατὰ ἀριθμὸν κατὰ τὴν κρίσιν ἐπ᾽ αὐτοῖς διὰ παντὸς τῷ κυρίῳ

32 καὶ φυλάξουσιν τὰς φυλακὰς σκηνῆς τοῦ μαρτυρίου καὶ τὰς φυλακὰς υἱῶν Ααρων ἀδελφῶν αὐτῶν τοῦ λειτουργεῖν ἐν οἴκῳ κυρίου

1 Igitur David, senex et plenus dierum, regem constituit Salomonem filium suum super Israël.

2 Et congregavit omnes principes Israël, et sacerdotes atque Levitas.

3 Numeratique sunt Levitæ a triginta annis et supra: et inventa sunt triginta octo millia virorum.

4 Ex his electi sunt, et distributi in ministerium domus Domini, viginti quatuor millia: præpositorum autem et judicum, sex millia.

5 Porro quatuor millia janitores, et totidem psaltæ, canentes Domino in organis quæ fecerat ad canendum.

6 Et distribuit eos David per vices filiorum Levi, Gerson videlicet, et Caath, et Merari.

7 Filii Gerson: Leedan, et Semei.

8 Filii Leedan: princeps Jahiel, et Zethan, et Joël, tres.

9 Filii Semei: Salomith, et Hosiel, et Aran, tres: isti principes familiarum Leedan.

10 Porro filii Semei: Leheth, et Ziza, et Jaus, et Baria: isti filii Semei, quatuor.

11 Erat autem Leheth prior, Ziza secundus: porro Jaus et Baria non habuerunt plurimos filios, et idcirco in una familia, unaque domo computati sunt.

12 Filii Caath: Amram, et Isaar, Hebron, et Oziel, quatuor.

13 Filii Amram: Aaron et Moyses. Separatusque est Aaron ut ministraret in Sancto sanctorum, ipse et filii ejus in sempiternum, et adoleret incensum Domino secundum ritum suum, ac benediceret nomini ejus in perpetuum.

14 Moysi quoque hominis Dei filii annumerati sunt in tribu Levi.

15 Filii Moysi: Gersom et Eliezer.

16 Filii Gersom: Subuel primus.

17 Fuerunt autem filii Eliezer: Rohobia primus: et non erant Eliezer filii alii. Porro filii Rohobia multiplicati sunt nimis.

18 Filii Isaar: Salomith primus.

19 Filii Hebron: Jeriau primus, Amarias secundus, Jahaziel tertius, Jecmaam quartus.

20 Filii Oziel: Micha primus, Jesia secundus.

21 Filii Merari: Moholi, et Musi. Filii Moholi: Eleazar et Cis.

22 Mortuus est autem Eleazar, et non habuit filios, sed filias: acceperuntque eas filii Cis fratres earum.

23 Filii Musi: Moholi, et Eder, et Jerimoth, tres.

24 Hi filii Levi in cognationibus et familiis suis, principes per vices, et numerum capitum singulorum qui faciebant opera ministerii domus Domini, a viginti annis et supra.

25 Dixit enim David: Requiem dedit Dominus Deus Israël populo suo, et habitationem Jerusalem usque in æternum.

26 Nec erit officii Levitarum ut ultra portent tabernaculum et omnia vasa ejus ad ministrandum.

27 Juxta præcepta quoque David novissima, supputabitur numerus filiorum Levi a viginti annis et supra.

28 Et erunt sub manu filiorum Aaron in cultum domus Domini, in vestibulis, et in exedris, et in loco purificationis, et in sanctuario, et in universis operibus ministerii templi Domini.

29 Sacerdotes autem, super panes propositionis, et ad similæ sacrificium, et ad lagana azyma, et sartaginem, et ad torrendum, et super omne pondus atque mensuram.

30 Levitæ vero ut stent mane ad confitendum et canendum Domino: similiterque ad vesperam,

31 tam in oblatione holocaustorum Domini, quam in sabbatis et calendis et solemnitatibus reliquis juxta numerum et cæremonias uniuscujusque rei, jugiter coram Domino.

32 Et custodiant observationes tabernaculi fœderis, et ritum sanctuarii, et observationem filiorum Aaron fratrum suorum, ut ministrent in domo Domini.
