Repeopling of Jerusalem . 1 *The leaders of the people took up residence in Jerusalem, and the rest of the people cast lots to bring one man in ten to reside in Jerusalem, the holy city, while the other nine would remain in the other cities. h Neh 7, 4 . 2The people applauded all those men who willingly agreed to take up residence in Jerusalem.

The Residents of Jerusalem . 3 i 3–19: 1 Chr 9, 2–34 . These are the heads of the province who took up residence in Jerusalem. (In the cities of Judah dwelt lay Israelites, priests, Levites, temple slaves, and the descendants of the slaves of Solomon, each man on the property he owned in his own city.)

4In Jerusalem dwelt both Judahites and Benjaminites. Of the Judahites: Athaiah, son of Uzziah, son of Zechariah, son of Amariah, son of Shephatiah, son of Mehallalel, of the sons of Perez; 5Maaseiah, son of Baruch, son of Colhozeh, son of Hazaiah, son of Adaiah, son of Joiarib, son of Zechariah, a son of the Shelanites. 6The total of the sons of Perez who dwelt in Jerusalem was four hundred and sixty‐eight valiant men.

10Among the priests were: Jedaiah; Joiarib; Jachin; 11Seraiah, son of Hilkiah, son of Meshullam, son of Zadok, son of Meraioth, son of Ahitub, the ruler of the house of God, 12and their brethren who carried out the temple service, eight hundred and twenty‐two; Adaiah, son of Jeroham, son of Pelaliah, son of Amzi, son of Zechariah, son of Pashhur, son of Malchijah, 13and his brethren, family heads, two hundred and forty‐two; and Amasai, son of Azarel, son of Ahzai, son of Meshillemoth, son of Immer, 14and his brethren, warriors, one hundred and twenty‐eight. Their commander was Zabdiel, son of Haggadol.

15Among the Levites were Shemaiah, son of Hasshub, son of Azrikam, son of Hashabiah, son of Bunni; 16Shabbethai and Jozabad, levitical chiefs who were placed over the external affairs of the house of God; 17Mattaniah, son of Micah, son of Zabdi, son of Asaph, director of the psalms, who led the thanksgiving at prayer; Bakbukiah, second in rank among his brethren; and Abda, son of Shammua, son of Galal, son of Jeduthun. 18The total of the Levites in the holy city was two hundred and eighty‐four.

19The gatekeepers were Akkub, Talmon, and their brethren, who kept watch over the gates; one hundred and seventy‐two in number.

20The rest of Israel, including priests and Levites, were in all the other cities of Judah, each man in his inheritance.

21The temple slaves lived on Ophel. Ziha and Gishpa were in charge of the temple slaves.
