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