I gave instructions 1 that Shelemiah the priest, Zadok the scribe, and a certain Levite named Pedaiah be put in charge of 2 the storerooms, and that Hanan son of Zaccur, the son of Mattaniah, be their assistant, 3 for they were regarded as trustworthy. It was then their responsibility to oversee the distribution to their colleagues. 4

1 tc Probably one should read with the Lucianic Greek recension, the Syriac Peshitta, and the Vulgate וָאֲצַוֶּה (va’atsavveh, “and I commanded”) rather than the rare denominative verb וָאוֹצְרָה (va’otsÿrah, “and I appointed over the storeroom”) of the MT.
2 tn Heb “be over”
3 tn Heb “on their hand.”
4 tn Heb “brothers.”
