1CH 23:20 Of the sons of Uzziel; Michah the first, and Jesiah the second.

1CH 23:21 # The sons of Merari; Mahli, and Mushi. The sons of Mahli; Eleazar, and Kish.

1CH 23:22 And Eleazar died, and had no sons, but daughters: and their brethren the sons of Kish took them.

1CH 23:23 The sons of Mushi; Mahli, and Eder, and Jeremoth, three.

1CH 23:24 # 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.

1CH 23:25 For David said, The LORD God of Israel hath given rest unto his people, that they may dwell in Jerusalem for ever:

1CH 23:26 And also unto the Levites; they shall no [more] carry the tabernacle, nor any vessels of it for the service thereof.

1CH 23:27 For by the last words of David the Levites [were] numbered from twenty years old and above:

1CH 23:28 Because their office [was] to wait on the sons of Aaron for the service of the house of the LORD, in the courts, and in the chambers, and in the purifying of all holy things, and the work of the service of the house of God;

1CH 23:29 Both for the shewbread, and for the fine flour for meat offering, and for the unleavened cakes, and for [that which is baked in] the pan, and for that which is fried, and for all manner of measure and size;

1CH 23:30 And to stand every morning to thank and praise the LORD, and likewise at even;

1CH 23:31 And to offer all burnt sacrifices unto the LORD in the sabbaths, in the new moons, and on the set feasts, by number, according to the order commanded unto them, continually before the LORD:

1CH 23:32 And that they should keep the charge of the tabernacle of the congregation, and the charge of the holy [place], and the charge of the sons of Aaron their brethren, in the service of the house of the LORD.

1CH 24:1 Now [these are] the divisions of the sons of Aaron. The sons of Aaron; Nadab, and Abihu, Eleazar, and Ithamar.

1CH 24:2 But Nadab and Abihu died before their father, and had no children: therefore Eleazar and Ithamar executed the priest's office.

1CH 24:3 And David distributed them, both Zadok of the sons of Eleazar, and Ahimelech of the sons of Ithamar, according to their offices in their service.

1CH 24:4 And there were more chief men found of the sons of Eleazar than of the sons of Ithamar; and [thus] were they divided. Among the sons of Eleazar [there were] sixteen chief men of the house of [their] fathers, and eight among the sons of Ithamar according to the house of their fathers.

1CH 24:5 Thus were they divided by lot, one sort with another; for the governors of the sanctuary, and governors [of the house] of God, were of the sons of Eleazar, and of the sons of Ithamar.

1CH 24:6 And Shemaiah the son of Nethaneel 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 Levites: one principal household being taken for Eleazar, and [one] taken for Ithamar.

1CH 24:7 Now the first lot came forth to Jehoiarib, the second to Jedaiah,

1CH 24:8 The third to Harim, the fourth to Seorim,

1CH 24:9 The fifth to Malchijah, the sixth to Mijamin,

1CH 24:10 The seventh to Hakkoz, the eighth to Abijah,

1CH 24:11 The ninth to Jeshua, the tenth to Shecaniah,

1CH 24:12 The eleventh to Eliashib, the twelfth to Jakim,

1CH 24:13 The thirteenth to Huppah, the fourteenth to Jeshebeab,

1CH 24:14 The fifteenth to Bilgah, the sixteenth to Immer,

1CH 24:15 The seventeenth to Hezir, the eighteenth to Aphses,

1CH 24:16 The nineteenth to Pethahiah, the twentieth to Jehezekel,

1CH 24:17 The one and twentieth to Jachin, the two and twentieth to Gamul,

1CH 24:18 The three and twentieth to Delaiah, the four and twentieth to Maaziah.

1CH 24:19 These [were] the orderings of them in their service to come into the house of the LORD, according to their manner, under Aaron their father, as the LORD God of Israel had commanded him.

1CH 24:20 # And the rest of the sons of Levi [were these]: Of the sons of Amram; Shubael: of the sons of Shubael; Jehdeiah.

1CH 24:21 Concerning Rehabiah: of the sons of Rehabiah, the first [was] Isshiah.

1CH 24:22 Of the Izharites; Shelomoth: of the sons of Shelomoth; Jahath.

1CH 24:23 And the sons [of Hebron]; Jeriah [the first], Amariah the second, Jahaziel the third, Jekameam the fourth.

1CH 24:24 [Of] the sons of Uzziel; Michah: of the sons of Michah; Shamir.

1CH 24:25 The brother of Michah [was] Isshiah: of the sons of Isshiah; Zechariah.

1CH 24:26 The sons of Merari [were] Mahli and Mushi: the sons of Jaaziah; Beno.

1CH 24:27 # The sons of Merari by Jaaziah; Beno, and Shoham, and Zaccur, and Ibri.

1CH 24:28 Of Mahli [came] Eleazar, who had no sons.

1CH 24:29 Concerning Kish: the son of Kish [was] Jerahmeel.

1CH 24:30 The sons also of Mushi; Mahli, and Eder, and Jerimoth. These [were] the sons of the Levites after the house of their fathers.

1CH 24:31 These likewise cast lots over against their brethren the sons of Aaron in the presence of David the king, and Zadok, and Ahimelech, and the chief of the fathers of the priests and Levites, even the principal fathers over against their younger brethren.

1CH 25:1 Moreover David and the captains of the host separated to the service of the sons of Asaph, and of Heman, and of Jeduthun, who should prophesy with harps, with psalteries, and with cymbals: and the number of the workmen according to their service was:

1CH 25:2 Of the sons of Asaph; Zaccur, and Joseph, and Nethaniah, and Asarelah, the sons of Asaph under the hands of Asaph, which prophesied according to the order of the king.

1CH 25:3 Of Jeduthun: the sons of Jeduthun; Gedaliah, and Zeri, and Jeshaiah, Hashabiah, and Mattithiah, six, under the hands of their father Jeduthun, who prophesied with a harp, to give thanks and to praise the LORD.

1CH 25:4 Of Heman: the sons of Heman; Bukkiah, Mattaniah, Uzziel, Shebuel, and Jerimoth, Hananiah, Hanani, Eliathah, Giddalti, and Romamti-ezer, Joshbekashah, Mallothi, Hothir, [and] Mahazioth:

1CH 25:5 All these [were] the sons of Heman the king's seer in the words of God, to lift up the horn. And God gave to Heman fourteen sons and three daughters.

1CH 25:6 All these [were] under the hands of their father for song [in] the house of the LORD, with cymbals, psalteries, and harps, for the service of the house of God, according to the king's order to Asaph, Jeduthun, and Heman.

1CH 25:7 So the number of them, with their brethren that were instructed in the songs of the LORD, [even] all that were cunning, was two hundred fourscore and eight.

1CH 25:8 # And they cast lots, ward against [ward], as well the small as the great, the teacher as the scholar.

1CH 25:9 Now the first lot came forth for Asaph to Joseph: the second to Gedaliah, who with his brethren and sons [were] twelve:



PSA 112:4 Unto the upright there ariseth light in the darkness: [he is] gracious, and full of compassion, and righteous.

PSA 112:5 A good man sheweth favour, and lendeth: he will guide his affairs with discretion.

PSA 112:6 Surely he shall not be moved for ever: the righteous shall be in everlasting remembrance.

PSA 112:7 He shall not be afraid of evil tidings: his heart is fixed, trusting in the LORD.

PSA 112:8 His heart [is] established, he shall not be afraid, until he see [his desire] upon his enemies.

PSA 112:9 He hath dispersed, he hath given to the poor; his righteousness endureth for ever; his horn shall be exalted with honour.

PSA 112:10 The wicked shall see [it], and be grieved; he shall gnash with his teeth, and melt away: the desire of the wicked shall perish.

PSA 113:1 Praise ye the LORD. Praise, O ye servants of the LORD, praise the name of the LORD.

PSA 113:2 Blessed be the name of the LORD from this time forth and for evermore.



ACT 18:14 And when Paul was now about to open [his] mouth, Gallio said unto the Jews, If it were a matter of wrong or wicked lewdness, O [ye] Jews, reason would that I should bear with you:

ACT 18:15 But if it be a question of words and names, and [of] your law, look ye [to it]; for I will be no judge of such [matters].

ACT 18:16 And he drave them from the judgment seat.

ACT 18:17 Then all the Greeks took Sosthenes, the chief ruler of the synagogue, and beat [him] before the judgment seat. And Gallio cared for none of those things.

ACT 18:18 # And Paul [after this] tarried [there] yet a good while, and then took his leave of the brethren, and sailed thence into Syria, and with him Priscilla and Aquila; having shorn [his] head in Cenchrea: for he had a vow.

ACT 18:19 And he came to Ephesus, and left them there: but he himself entered into the synagogue, and reasoned with the Jews.

ACT 18:20 When they desired [him] to tarry longer time with them, he consented not;

ACT 18:21 But bade them farewell, saying, I must by all means keep this feast that cometh in Jerusalem: but I will return again unto you, if God will. And he sailed from Ephesus.

ACT 18:22 And when he had landed at Caesarea, and gone up, and saluted the church, he went down to Antioch.

ACT 18:23 And after he had spent some time [there], he departed, and went over [all] the country of Galatia and Phrygia in order, strengthening all the disciples.

ACT 18:24 # And a certain Jew named Apollos, born at Alexandria, an eloquent man, [and] mighty in the scriptures, came to Ephesus.

ACT 18:25 This man was instructed in the way of the Lord; and being fervent in the spirit, he spake and taught diligently the things of the Lord, knowing only the baptism of John.

ACT 18:26 And he began to speak boldly in the synagogue: whom when Aquila and Priscilla had heard, they took him unto [them], and expounded unto him the way of God more perfectly.

ACT 18:27 And when he was disposed to pass into Achaia, the brethren wrote, exhorting the disciples to receive him: who, when he was come, helped them much which had believed through grace:

ACT 18:28 For he mightily convinced the Jews, [and that] publickly, shewing by the scriptures that Jesus was Christ.

ACT 19:1 And it came to pass, that, while Apollos was at Corinth, Paul having passed through the upper coasts came to Ephesus: and finding certain disciples,

ACT 19:2 He said unto them, Have ye received the Holy Ghost since ye believed? And they said unto him, We have not so much as heard whether there be any Holy Ghost.

ACT 19:3 And he said unto them, Unto what then were ye baptized? And they said, Unto John's baptism.

ACT 19:4 Then said Paul, John verily baptized with the baptism of repentance, saying unto the people, that they should believe on him which should come after him, that is, on Christ Jesus.

ACT 19:5 When they heard [this], they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus.

ACT 19:6 And when Paul had laid [his] hands upon them, the Holy Ghost came on them; and they spake with tongues, and prophesied.

ACT 19:7 And all the men were about twelve.
