NASB — 1 Chronicles 24 — KJV

Divisions of Levites

1 Now the divisions of the Idescendants of Aaron [were these]: athe sons of Aaron [were] Nadab, Abihu, Eleazar and Ithamar. 2 aBut Nadab and Abihu died before their father and had no Isons. So Eleazar and Ithamar served as priests. 3 David, with aZadok of the sons of Eleazar and Ahimelech of the sons of Ithamar, divided them according to their offices Ifor their ministry. 4 Since more chief men were found from the Idescendants of Eleazar than the Idescendants of Ithamar, they divided them thus: [there were] sixteen heads of fathers’ households of the Idescendants of Eleazar and eight of the Idescendants of Ithamar, according to their fathers’ households. 5 aThus they were divided by lot, the one as the other; for they were officers of the sanctuary and officers of God, both from the Idescendants of Eleazar and the Idescendants of Ithamar. 6 Shemaiah, the son of Nethanel the scribe, from the Levites, recorded them in the presence of the king, the princes, Zadok the priest, aAhimelech the son of Abiathar, and the heads of the fathers’ [households] of the priests and of the Levites; one father’s household taken for Eleazar and one taken for Ithamar.

The divisions of the sons of Aaron by lot into four and twenty orders.

1 ¶ Now [these are] the divisions of the sons of Aaron. The sons of Aaron; Nadab, and Abihu, Eleazar, and Ithamar. 2 But Nadab and Abihu died before their father, and had no children: therefore Eleazar and Ithamar executed the priest's office. 3 And David distributed them, both Zadok of the sons of Eleazar, and Ahimelech of the sons of Ithamar, according to their offices in their service. 4 And there were more chief men found of the sons of Eleazar than of the sons of Ithamar; and [thus] were they divided. Among the sons of Eleazar [there were] sixteen chief men of the house of [their] fathers, and eight among the sons of Ithamar according to the house of their fathers. 5 Thus were they divided by lot, one sort with another; for the governors of the sanctuary, and governors [of the house] of God, were of the sons of Eleazar, and of the sons of Ithamar. 6 And Shemaiah the son of Nethaneel the scribe, [one] of the Levites, wrote them before the king, and the princes, and Zadok the priest, and Ahimelech the son of Abiathar, and [before] the chief of the fathers of the priests and Levites: one principal household being taken for Eleazar, and [one] taken for Ithamar. 7 Now the first lot came forth to Jehoiarib, the second to Jedaiah, 8 The third to Harim, the fourth to Seorim, 9 The fifth to Malchijah, the sixth to Mijamin, 10 The seventh to Hakkoz, the eighth to Abijah, 11 The ninth to Jeshua, the tenth to Shecaniah, 12 The eleventh to Eliashib, the twelfth to Jakim, 13 The thirteenth to Huppah, the fourteenth to Jeshebeab, 14 The fifteenth to Bilgah, the sixteenth to Immer, 15 The seventeenth to Hezir, the eighteenth to Aphses, 16 The nineteenth to Pethahiah, the twentieth to Jehezekel, 17 The one and twentieth to Jachin, the two and twentieth to Gamul, 18 The three and twentieth to Delaiah, the four and twentieth to Maaziah. 19 These [were] the orderings of them in their service to come into the house of the LORD, according to their manner, under Aaron their father, as the LORD God of Israel had commanded him.
