Remaining Levites

24:20 The rest of the Levites included: 1 

Shubael 2  from the sons of Amram,

Jehdeiah from the sons of Shubael,

24:21 the firstborn Isshiah from Rehabiah and the sons of Rehabiah,

24:22 Shelomoth from the Izharites,

Jahath from the sons of Shelomoth.

24:23 The sons of Hebron: 3 

Jeriah, Amariah the second, Jahaziel the third, and Jekameam the fourth.

24:24 The son 4  of Uzziel:

Shamir from the sons of Micah.

24:25 The brother of Micah:

Isshiah.

Zechariah from the sons of Isshiah.

24:26 The sons of Merari:

Mahli and Mushi.

The son of Jaaziah:

Beno. 5 

24:27 The sons of Merari, from Jaaziah:

Beno, 6  Shoham, Zaccur, and Ibri.

24:28 From Mahli:

Eleazar, who had no sons.

24:29 From Kish:

24:30 The sons of Mushi:

These were the Levites, listed by their families.

24:31 Just like their relatives, the descendants of Aaron, they also cast lots before King David, Zadok, Ahimelech, the leaders of families, the priests, and the Levites. The families of the oldest son cast lots along with the those of the youngest. 8 

1 tn Heb “Belonging to the rest of the sons of Levi.”

2 tn This appears to be a variant of the name Shebuel (cf. 1 Chr 23:16 and 26:24).

3 tc Most Hebrew mss omit “Hebron” here, but see 1 Chr 23:19. The name is included in two Hebrew mss and some LXX mss.

4 tn The Hebrew text has the plural “sons,” but only one name appears after this.

5 tn Heb “the sons of Jaaziah, Beno.” Apparently בְנוֹ (vÿno), which could be translated “his son,” is a proper name here. The text, however, may be corrupt at this point; a list of Jaaziah’s sons may have been accidentally omitted. See v. 27.

6 tn Or “from Jaaziah his son.” See the note on “Beno” in v. 26.

7 tc The Hebrew text has, “Belonging to [i.e., from] Kish, the sons of Kish, Jerahmeel.” There appears to be a conflation of headings.

8 tn Heb “the fathers [i.e., families] of the head [i.e., oldest] just like his youngest brother.”
