1 Chronicles 23:3-5

Context
23:3 The Levites who were thirty years old and up were counted; there were 38,000 men. 1  23:4 David said, 2  “Of these, 24,000 are to direct the work of the Lord’s temple; 6,000 are to be officials and judges; 23:5 4,000 are to be gatekeepers; and 4,000 are to praise the Lord with the instruments I supplied for worship.” 3 

1 tn Heb “and their number by their heads, by men, was 38,000.”

2 tn The words “David said” are supplied here in the translation for clarification. The appearance of the first person verb “I supplied” in v. 5 indicates that David is speaking here.

3 tn Heb “made to [or “for”] praise.”
