1 Chronicles 9:17-27 Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)
17 The gatekeepers: Shallum, Akkub, Talmon, Ahiman, and their relatives.
22 The total number of those chosen to be gatekeepers at the thresholds was 212. They were registered by genealogy in their villages. David and Samuel the seer had appointed them to their trusted positions. 23 So they and their sons were assigned to the gates of the Lord’s temple, which had been the tent-temple. 24 The gatekeepers were on the four sides: east, west, north, and south. 25 Their relatives came from their villages at fixed times to be with them seven days, 26 but the four chief gatekeepers, who were Levites, were entrusted with the rooms and the treasuries of God’s temple. 27 They spent the night in the vicinity of God’s temple, because they had guard duty and were in charge of opening it every morning.
