23:1 So when David [H1732] was old [H2204] and full [H7646] of days [H3117] , he made Solomon [H8010] his son [H1121] king [H4427] over Israel [H3478] .

23:2 And he gathered together [H622] all the princes [H8269] of Israel [H3478] , with the priests [H3548] and the Levites [H3881] .

23:3 Now the Levites [H3881] were numbered [H5608] from the age [H1121] of thirty [H7970] years [H8141] and upward [H4605] : and their number [H4557] by their polls [H1538] , man by man [H1397] , was thirty [H7970] and eight [H8083] thousand [H505] .

23:4 Of which [H428] , twenty [H6242] and four [H702] thousand [H505] [were] to set forward [H5329] the work [H4399] of the house [H1004] of the LORD [H3068] ; and six [H8337] thousand [H505] [were] officers [H7860] and judges [H8199] :(set: or, oversee)

23:5 Moreover four [H702] thousand [H505] [were] porters [H7778] ; and four [H702] thousand [H505] praised [H1984] the LORD [H3068] with the instruments [H3627] which I made [H6213] , [said David], to praise [H1984] [therewith].

23:6 And David [H1732] divided [H2505] them into courses [H4256] among the sons [H1121] of Levi [H3878] , [namely], Gershon [H1648] , Kohath [H6955] , and Merari [H4847] .(courses: Heb. divisions)

23:12 The sons [H1121] of Kohath [H6955] ; Amram [H6019] , Izhar [H3324] , Hebron [H2275] , and Uzziel [H5816] , four [H702] .

23:14 Now [concerning] Moses [H4872] the man [H376] of God [H430] , his sons [H1121] were named [H7121] of the tribe [H7626] of Levi [H3878] .

23:22 And Eleazar [H499] died [H4191] , and had no sons [H1121] , but daughters [H1323] : and their brethren [H251] the sons [H1121] of Kish [H7027] took [H5375] them.(brethren: or, kinsmen)

23:25 For David [H1732] said [H559] , The LORD [H3068] God [H430] of Israel [H3478] hath given rest [H5117] unto his people [H5971] , that they may dwell [H7931] in Jerusalem [H3389] for ever [H5769] :(that: or, and he dwelleth in Jerusalem, etc)

23:30 And to stand [H5975] every morning [H1242] to thank [H3034] and praise [H1984] the LORD [H3068] , and likewise at even [H6153] ;
