Ezra 2:61-62

Context

2:61 And from among 1  the priests: the descendants of Hobaiah, the descendants of Hakkoz, and the descendants of Barzillai (who had taken a wife from the daughters of Barzillai the Gileadite and was called by that 2  name). 2:62 They 3  searched for their records in the genealogical materials, but did not find them. 4  They were therefore excluded 5  from the priesthood.

1 tc The translation reads וּמִן (umin, “and from”) rather than the reading וּמִבּנֵי (umibbÿney, “and from the sons of”) found in the MT.

2 tn Heb “their.”

3 tn Heb “these.”

4 tn Heb “their records were searched for in the genealogical materials, but were not found.” This passive construction has been translated as active for stylistic reasons.

5 tn Heb “they were desecrated.”
