¶ Now when we had builded the wall I hanged on the doors, and the porters, singers and Levites were appointed. And I commanded my brother Hanani, and Hananiah the ruler of the palace at Ierusalem: for he was a faithful man, and feared God more than did many other, and I said unto them: let not the gates of Ierusalem be opened until the son be whote. and while they are yet stonding in the watch, the doors shall be shut and barred. And there were certain citizens of Ierusalem appointed to be watchmen every one in his watch, and about his house. As for the city, it was large of room, and great, but the people were few therein, and the houses were not builded.
¶ And my God gave me in my heart, that I gathered together the principal men and the people to number them. And I found a register of the number of them, which came up afore out of the captivity: and found written therein: These are the sons of the land that went up from the captivity of the carrying away, (whom Nabuchodonosor the king of Babylon had brought away) and came again to Ierusalem and Iudah, every one unto his city, which came with Zorobabel, Iesua, Nehemiah, Asariah, Raamiah, Nahamani, Mardochee, Belsan, Mesparath, Begvai, Nahum, Baanah.

These sought the register of their generation, and when they found it not, they were put from the priesthood. And Hathirsatha said unto them, that they should not eat of the most holy, till there came up a Priest with light and perfectness. The whole congregation as one man, was two and forty thousand, three hundredth and threescore; Beside their servants and maidens, of whom there were seven thousand, three hundredth and seven and thirty. And they had two hundredth and seven and forty singing men and women, seven hundredth and six and thirty horses, two hundredth and five and forty Mules, four hundredth and five and thirty Camels, and six thousand, seven hundredth and twenty Asses.

And some of the chief fathers gave unto the treasure of the work, twenty thousand and two hundredth pound of silver. And the other people gave twenty thousand drams, and two thousand pound of silver, and seven and three score priests' garments. And the priests and Levites, the Porters, the singers, and the other of the people, and the Nethinims, and all Israel, dwelt in their cities.
