1 Chronicles 9
So all Israel was listed by their families and, truly, they are recorded in the book of the kings of Israel. And Judah was taken away as prisoners to Babylon because of their sin.
Now the first to take up their heritage in their towns were: Israel, the priests, the Levites, and the Nethinim.
And in Jerusalem there were living some of the sons of Judah, and of Benjamin, and of Ephraim and Manasseh
Uthai, the son of Ammihud, the son of Omri, the son of Imri, the son of Bani, of the sons of Perez, the son of Judah.
And of the Shilonites: Asaiah the oldest, and his sons.
And of the sons of Zerah: Jeuel, and their brothers, six hundred and ninety.
And of the sons of Benjamin: Sallu, the son of Meshullam, Judah, the son of Hassenuah,
And Ibneiah, the son of Jeroham, and Elah, the son of Uzzi, the son of Michri, and Meshullam, the son of Shephatiah, the son of Reuel, the son of Ibnijah
And their brothers, in the list of their generations, nine hundred and fifty-six. All these men were heads of families, listed by the names of their fathers.
And of the priests: Jedaiah and Jehoiarib and Jachin
And Azariah, the son of Hilkiah, the son of Meshullam, the son of Zadok, the son of Meraioth, the son of Ahitub, the ruler of the house of God
And Adaiah, the son of Jeroham, the son of Pashhur, the son of Malchijah, and Maasai, the son of Adiel, the son of Jahzerah, the son of Meshullam, the son of Meshillemith, the son of Immer
And their brothers, heads of their families, a thousand and seven hundred and sixty: able men, doing the work of the house of God.
And of the Levites: Shemaiah, the son of Hasshub, the son of Azrikam, the son of Hashabiah, of the sons of Merari
And Bakbakkar, Heresh, and Galal, and Mattaniah, the son of Mica, the son of Zichri, the son of Asaph
And Obadiah, the son of Shemaiah, the son of Galal, the son of Jeduthun, and Berechiah, the son of Asa, the son of Elkanah, who were living in the small towns of the Netophathites.
And the door-keepers: Shallum and Akkub and Talmon and Ahiman and their brothers: Shallum was the chief.
Up till then they had been at the king's door to the east. They were door-keepers for the tents of the sons of Levi.
And Shallum, the son of Kore, the son of Ebiasaph, the son of Korah, and his brothers, of his family, the Korahites, were responsible for everything which had to be done in connection with the order of worship, keepers of the doors of the Tent their fathers had had the care of the tents of the Lord, being keepers of the doorway.
In the past Phinehas, the son of Eleazar, had been ruler over them may the Lord be with him!
Zechariah, the son of Meshelemiah, was keeper of the door of the Tent of meeting.
There were two hundred and twelve whose business it was to keep the doorway. These were listed by families in the country places where they were living, whom David and Samuel the seer put in their responsible positions.
So they and their sons had the care of the doors of the house of the Lord, the house of the Tent, as watchers.
There were keepers of the doors on the four sides, to the east, west, north, and south.
And their brothers, in the country places where they were living, were to come in every seven days to be with them from time to time.
For the four chief door-keepers, who were Levites, had a special position, looking after the rooms and the store-houses of the house of God.
Their sleeping-rooms were round the house of God, for they had the care of it, and were responsible for opening it morning by morning.
Certain of them had the care of the vessels used in worship, to keep an account of them when they came in and when they were taken out again.
And some of them were responsible for the holy things and for the vessels of the holy place, and the meal and the wine and the oil and the perfume and the spices.
And some of the sons of the priests were responsible for crushing the spices.
And Mattithiah, one of the Levites, the oldest son of Shallum the Korahite, was responsible for cooking the flat cakes.
And some of their brothers, sons of the Kohathites, were responsible for the holy bread which was put in order before the Lord, to get it ready every Sabbath.
And these were those who had the ordering of the music and songs, heads of families of the Levites, who were living in the rooms, and were free from other work, for their work went on day and night.
These were heads of families of the Levites in their generations, chief men they were living at Jerusalem.
And in Gibeon was living the father of Gibeon, Jeiel, whose wife's name was Maacah
And Abdon his oldest son, and Zur and Kish and Baal and Ner and Nadab
And Gedor and Ahio and Zechariah and Mikloth
Mikloth was the father of Shimeam. They were living with their brothers in Jerusalem opposite their brothers.
And Ner was the father of Kish and Kish was the father of Saul and Saul was the father of Jonathan and Malchi-shua and Abinadab and Eshbaal.
And the son of Jonathan was Merib-baal and Merib-baal was the father of Micah.
And the sons of Micah: Pithon and Melech and Tahrea and Ahaz.
And Ahaz was the father of Jarah and Jarah was the father of Alemeth and Azmaveth and Zimri and Zimri was the father of Moza.
And Moza was the father of Binea and Rephaiah was his son, Eleasah his son, Azel his son.
And Azel had five sons, whose names are: Azrikam, his oldest son, and Ishmael and Sheariah and Obadiah and Hanan: these were the sons of Azel.
1 Chronicles 10
Now the Philistines were fighting against Israel and the men of Israel went in flight before the Philistines, falling down wounded in Mount Gilboa.
And the Philistines went hard after Saul and his sons, and put to death Jonathan and Abinadab and Malchi-shua, the sons of Saul.
And the fight was going against Saul, and the archers came across him, and he was wounded by the archers.
Then Saul said to the servant who had the care of his arms, Take your sword and put it through me, before these men without circumcision come and make sport of me. But his servant, full of fear, would not do so. Then Saul took out his sword, falling on it himself.
And when his servant saw that Saul was dead, he did the same, and came to his death.
So death overtook Saul and his three sons all his family came to an end together.
And when all the men of Israel who were in the valley saw that the men of Israel had gone in flight and that Saul and his sons were dead, they went in flight away from their towns and the Philistines came and took them for themselves.
Now the day after, when the Philistines came to take their goods from the dead, they saw Saul and his sons dead in Mount Gilboa.
And they took everything off him, and took his head and his war-dress, and sent word into the land of the Philistines round about to give the news to their gods and to the people.
And they put his war-dress in the house of their gods, and put up his head in the house of Dagon.
And when the news came to Jabesh-gilead of what the Philistines had done to Saul,
All the fighting-men came up and took away Saul's body and the bodies of his sons, and took them to Jabesh, and put their bones to rest under the oak-tree in Jabesh, and took no food for seven days.
So death came to Saul because of the sin which he did against the Lord, that is, because of the word of the Lord which he kept not and because he went for directions to one who had an evil spirit,
And not to the Lord: for this reason, he put him to death and gave the kingdom to David, the son of Jesse.
Now after these things, the Lord made selection of seventy others and sent them before him, two together, into every town and place where he himself was about to come.
And he said to them, There is much grain ready to be cut, but not enough workers: so make prayer to the Lord of the grain-fields that he will send workers to get in the grain.
Go on your way: see, I send you out like lambs among wolves.
Take no bag for money or for food, and no shoes say no word to any man on the way.
And whenever you go into a house, first say, Peace be to this house.
And if a son of peace is there, your peace will be with him: but if not, it will come back to you again.
And keep in that same house, taking what food and drink they give you: for the worker has a right to his reward. Do not go from house to house.
And into whatever town you go, if they take you in, take whatever food is given to you:
And make well those in it who are ill and say to them, The kingdom of God is near to you.
But if you go into a town where they will not have you, go out into the streets of it and say,
Even the dust of your town, which is on our feet, we put off as a witness against you but be certain of this, that the kingdom of God is near.
I say to you, It will be better in that day for Sodom than for that town.
A curse is on you, Chorazin! A curse is on you, Beth-saida! For if such works of power had been done in Tyre and Sidon as have been done in you, they would have been turned from their sins, in days gone by, seated in the dust.
But it will be better for Tyre and Sidon, in the day of judging, than for you.
And you, Capernaum, were you not lifted up to heaven? you will go down to hell.
Whoever gives ear to you, gives ear to me and whoever is against you, is against me and whoever is against me, is against him who sent me.
And the seventy came back with joy, saying, Lord, even the evil spirits are under our power in your name.
And he said, I was watching for Satan, falling from heaven like a star.
See, I have given you power to put your feet on snakes and evil beasts, and over all the strength of him who is against you: and nothing will do you damage.
Do not be glad, however, because you have power over spirits, but because your names are recorded in heaven.
In that same hour he was full of joy in the Holy Spirit and said, I give praise to you, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because you have kept these things secret from the wise and the men of learning, and have made them clear to little children: for so, O Father, it was pleasing in your eyes.
All things have been given to me by my Father: and no one has knowledge of the Son, but only the Father: and of the Father, but only the Son, and he to whom the Son will make it clear.
And, turning to the disciples, he said privately, Happy are the eyes which see the things you see:
For I say to you that numbers of prophets and kings have had a desire to see the things which you see, and have not seen them, and to have knowledge of the things which have come to your ears, and they had it not.
