1Chr 24:1-19

Divisions of the Priests 1The divisions of the descendants of Aaron were these. The sons of Aaron: Nadab, Abihu, Eleazar, and Ithamar.2But Nadab and Abihu died before their father, and had no sons; so Eleazar and Ithamar became the priests.3Along with Zadok of the sons of Eleazar, and Ahimelech of the sons of Ithamar, David organized them according to the appointed duties in their service.4Since more chief men were found among the sons of Eleazar than among the sons of Ithamar, they organized them under sixteen heads of ancestral houses of the sons of Eleazar, and eight of the sons of Ithamar.5They organized them by lot, all alike, for there were officers of the sanctuary and officers of God among both the sons of Eleazar and the sons of Ithamar.6The scribe Shemaiah son of Nethanel, a Levite, recorded them in the presence of the king, and the officers, and Zadok the priest, and Ahimelech son of Abiathar, and the heads of ancestral houses of the priests and of the Levites; one ancestral house being chosen for Eleazar and one chosen for Ithamar.7The first lot fell to Jehoiarib, the second to Jedaiah,8the third to Harim, the fourth to Seorim,9the fifth to Malchijah, the sixth to Mijamin,10the seventh to Hakkoz, the eighth to Abijah,11the ninth to Jeshua, the tenth to Shecaniah,12the eleventh to Eliashib, the twelfth to Jakim,13the thirteenth to Huppah, the fourteenth to Jeshebeab,14the fifteenth to Bilgah, the sixteenth to Immer,15the seventeenth to Hezir, the eighteenth to Happizzez,16the nineteenth to Pethahiah, the twentieth to Jehezkel,17the twenty-first to Jachin, the twenty-second to Gamul,18the twenty-third to Delaiah, the twenty-fourth to Maaziah.19These had as their appointed duty in their service to enter the house of the Lord according to the procedure established for them by their ancestor Aaron, as the Lord God of Israel had commanded him.
