                                                                David in his old age makes Solomon king.
First Verse
         “So when David was old and full of days, he made Solomon his son king over Israel.
 
 
                                                                  The number and distribution of the Levites.
 
2       “And he gathered together all the princes of Israel, with the priests and the Levites.
 
3       Now the Levites were numbered from the age of thirty years and upward: and their number by their polls,
         man by man, was
thirty and eight thousand.
 
4       Of which, twenty and four thou-sand were to set forward the work of the house of the LORD; and six thousand
         were officers and judges:
 
5       Moreover four thousand were porters; and four thousand praised the LORD with the instruments which
         I made, said David, to praise therewith.
6       And David divided them into courses among the sons of Levi, namely, Gershon, Kohath, and Merari        
 
 
                                                                      The families of the Gershonites.
 
                                                                                Cf. Num. 3. 25, 26. )
 
 
7  
    Of the Gershonites were Laadan, and Shimei.
 
8      The sons of Laadan; the chief was Jehiel, and Zetham, and Joel, three.
 
9      The sons of Shimei; Shelomith and Haziel, and Haran, three. These were the chief of the fathers of Laadan.
 
10    And the sons of Shimei were Jahath Zina, and Jeush, and Be-riah. These four were the sons of Shimei  
11    And Jahath was the chief, and Zizah the second: but Jeush and Beriah the second: but Jeush and Beriah had
        not many sons; there-fore they were in one reckoning, according to their father’s house.
 
 
                                                                                     The sons of Kohath.
 
                                                                                      (Cf. Num. 3. 27-31)
 
 
12    The sons of Kohath: Amram, Izhar, Hebron, and Uzziel, four.
14     Now concerning Moses the man of God, his sons were named of the tribe of Levi
 
19    Of the sons of Hebron; Jeriah the first Amariah the second, Jaha-ziel the third, and Jekameam the fourth.
23     The sons of Mushi; Mahli, and Eder, and Jeremoth,
three.
 
 
                                                                              The new office of the Levites
                                                                                       (Cf. Num. 3. 5-12.)
 
 
24    These were the sons of Levi after the house of their fathers; even the chief of the fathers, as they were
        counted by number of

        names by their polls, that did the work for the service of the house of the LORD, from the age of
        
twenty years and upward.

                                         The divisions of the sons of Aaron by lot into four and twenty orders.
First Verse
 
         “Now these are the divisions of the sons of Aaron; Nadab, and Abihu, Eleazar, and Ithamar.
4       And there were more chief men found of the sons of Eleazer than of the sons of Ithamar; and thus were they
         divided. Among the sons of Eleazar there were
sixteen chief men of their fathers, and eight among the
         sons of Itha-mar according to the house of their fathers.
 
 
 
                                                                           The four and twenty orders.
 
 
5       Thus were they divided by lot, one sort with another; for the gov-ernors of the sanctuary, and govern-ors of
 
         the house of God, were of the sons of Eleazer, and of the sons of Ithamar.
6       And Shemaiah the son of Neth-neel the scribe, one of the Levites, wrote them before the king, and the princes,
         and Zadok the priest, and Ahimelech the son of Abiathar, and before the chief of the fathers of the priests and
         the Levites: one princi-pal hold being taken for Elea-zar and one taken for Ithamar.
7       Now the
first lot came forth to Jehoiarib, the second to Jedaiah,
8       The
third to Harim, the fourth to Seorim,
 
9       The fifth to Malchijah, the sixth to Mijamin,
10     The
seventh to Hakkoz, the eighth to Abijah,
11     The
ninth to Jeshuah, the tenth to Shecaniah,

     The eleventh to Eliashib, the twelfth to Jakim,

17  
    The one and twentieth to Jachin, the two and twentieth to Gamul  
18     The three and twentieth to Delaiah, the four and twentieth to Maaziah.
 
19     These were the orderings of them in their service to come into the house of the Lord, according to the
          house of the LORD, according to there manner, under Aaron their father, as the Lord God of Israel had
          commanded him.”

The division of the porters.

First Verse
         “Concerning the divisions of the porters: Of the Korhites was Meshelemiah the son of Kore, of the
         sons of Asaph
2       And the sons of Meshelemiah were Zechariah the
first born, Je-diael the second, Zebadiah the third, Jathniel    
         the
fourth,
3       Elam the
fifth, Jehohanan the sixth, Elioenai the seventh.
4       Moreover, the sons of Obed-edom were, Shemaiah the
firstborn, Jehoz-abad the second, Joah the third, and
         Sacar the
fourth, and Nethan-eel the fifth
5       Ammiel the
sixth, Issachar the seventh, Peulthai the eight: for God blessed him.
6       Also unto Shemaiah his son were sons born, that ruled through-out the house of their father: for they were
         mighty men of valour.          
7       The sons of Shemaiah; Othni, and Rephael, and Obed, Elzabad, whose brethren were strong men, Elihu and
         Semachiah.
8       All these of the sons of Obed-edom: they and their sons and their brethren, able men for strength for the
         service, were
threescore and two of Obed-edom.
9       And Meshelemiah had sons and brethren, strong men
eighteen.    
10     Also Hosah, of the children of Merari, had sons; Simri the chief, (for though he was not the first-born, yet his
         father made him the chief;)
11     Hilkiah the
second, Tebaliah the third, Zechariah the fourth: all the sons and brethren of Hosah were thirteen
12     Among these were the divisions of the porters, even among the chief men, having wards one against another,
         to minister in the house of the LORD.
 
                                                                            The gates assigned by lot.
 
13      And they cast lots, as well the small as the great, according to the house of their fathers, for every gate.
14      And the lot
eastward fell to Shelemiah. Then for Zechariah his son, a wise counsellor, they cast lots; and his
          lot came out
northward.
15      To Obed-edom
southward; and to his sons the house of Asuppim.
16      To Shuppim and Hosah the lot came forth
westward, with the gate Shallecheth, by the causeway of the going
          up, ward against ward.
17      
Eastward were six Levites, northward four a day, southward four a day, and toward Assupim two and two
18      At Parbar westward,
four at the causeway, and two at Parbar.
19      These are the divisions of the porters among the sons of Kore, and among the sons of Merari.”
 
 
This work could go on for ever said the scribe. It does said Zed Aliz
At which point the scribe described a gap
 
                                                                                Officers and judges.
 
29     “Of the Izharites, Chenaniah and his sons were for the outward business over Israel, for officers and judges.
30     And of the Hebronites, Hasha-biah and his brethren, men of val-our, a
thousand and seven hundred, were
         among them of Israel on this side Jordan westward in all the business of the LORD,and in the service of the
         king.
31     Among the Hebronites was Je-rijah the chief, even among the Hebronites,according to the gen-erations of his
         fathers. In the for-tieth year of the reign of David they were sought for, and there were found among them
         mighty men of valour at Jazer of Gilead.
32     And his brethren, men of val-our, were
two thousand and seven hundred chief fathers, whom king David made
         rulers over the Reu-benites, the Gadites, and the half tribe of Manasseh, for every matter pertaining to God,
        and affairs of the king.”

     “And David assembled all the princes of Israel, the princes of the tribes, and the captains of the companies that
       ministered to the king by course, and the captains over the thousands, and captains over the hundreds and the
       stewards over the hundreds, and the stew-ards over all the substance and possession of the king, and of his
       sons, with the officers, and with the mighty men, unto Jerusalem.
2     Then David the king stood up upon his feet, and said, Hear me, my brethren and my people: As for me I had in
       mine heart to build an house of rest for the ark of the covenenant of the LORD, and for the flatstool of our God,
       and had made ready for the building:
3     But God said unto me, Thou shalt not build an house for my name, because thou hast been a man of war,
       and hast shed blood.
9     And thou, Solomon my son, know thou the God of thy father, and serve him with a perfect heart and with a
       willing mind: for the LORD searcheth all hearts, and un-derstandeth all the imagination of the thoughts: if thou
       seek him, he will be found of thee: but if thou forsake him, he will cast thee off for ever.
10   Take heed now;for the LORD hath chosen thee to build an house for the sanctuary: be strong and do it.
 
 
                                         He gives him patterns for the form, and gold and silver for the materials
 
11   Then David gave to Solomon his son the pattern of the porch, and of the houses thereof, and of the treasuries
       thereof, and of the upper chambers therof, and of the inner parlours thereof, and of the place of the mercy seat,
12   And the pattern of all that he had by the spirit, of the courts of the house of the LORD, and of all the chambers
       round about, of the treasuries of the house of God, and of the treasuries of the dedicated things:
13   Also for the courses of the priests and the Levites, and for all the work of the service of the house of the LORD,
       and for all the vessels of service in the house of the LORD.
14   He gave of
gold by weight for things of gold, for all instruments of all manner of service: silver also for all
       instruments of
silver by weight, for all instruments of every kind of service:
15   Even the weight for the can-dlesticks of
gold, and for their lamps of gold, by weight for every candle-stick, and for
       the lamps thereof: and for the candlesticks of
silver by weight, both for the candlesticks, and also for the lamps
       thereof, ac-cording to the use of every candle-stick.
16   And by weight he gave
gold for the tables of shewbread, for every table; and likewise silver for the tables of silver:
17   Also pure
gold for the flesh-hooks, and the bowls, and the cups: and for the golden basons he gave gold by        weight
       for every bason; and likewise
silver by weight for every bason of silver:
18   And for the altar of incense refined
gold by weight: and gold for the pattern of the chariot of the cherubims, that
       spread out their wings, and covered the ark of the covenant of the LORD.
19   All this said David, the LORD made me understand in writing by his hand upon me, even all the works of this        pattern.

First Verse
      “FURTHERMORE David the king said unto all the congrega-tion, Solomon my son, whom alone God hath
        chosen, is yet young and tender, and the work is great: for the palace is not for man, but for the LORD God.
2      Now I have prepared with all my might for the house of my God. the
Gold for things to be made of gold,
        and the
silver for things of sil-ver, and the brass for things of brass, the iron for things of iron, and wood for
        things of
wood; onyx stones, and stones to be set, glister-ing stones, and of divers colours, and all manner of
        precious stones, and marble stones in abundance.
3      Moreover, because I have set my affection to the house of my God, I have of mine own proper good, of
gold
        and
silver, which I have given to the house of my God, over and above all that I have pre-pared for the holy
        house,
4      Even
three thousand talents of gold, of the gold of Ophir, and seven thousand talents of refined silver, to
        overlay the walls of the houses withal:
5      The
gold for things of gold, and the silver for things of silver, and for all manner of work to be made by the
         hands of arthificers. And who then is willing to consecrate his service this day unto the LORD?”
6      Then the chief of the fathers and princes of the tribes of Israel, and the captains of thousands and of
         hundreds, with the rulers of the king’s work, offered willingly,  
7      And gave for the service of the house of God of
gold five thousand talents and ten thousand drams, and of
       
silver ten thousand talents, and of brass eighteen thousand tal-ents, and one hundred thousand talents of iron.
8      And they with whom precious stones were found gave them to the treasure of the house of the LORD, by the
        hand of Jehiel the Ger-shonite.
9      Then the people rejoiced, for that they offered willingly, because with perfect heart they offered willingly to the
        LORD: and David the king also rejoiced with great joy.
 
13     Now therefore, our God, we thank thee, and praise thy glorious name.
14     But who am I and what is my people, that we should be able to offer so willingly after this sort? for all things
         come of thee, and of thine own have we given thee.
15     For we are strangers before thee, and sojourners, as were all our fathers: our days on the earth are as a shadow,
         and there is none abiding.          
16     O LORD our God, all this store that we have prepared to build thee an house for thine holy name com-eth of
