[22] The Levites the chiefs of the families in the days of Eliasib, and Joiada, and Johanan, and Jeddoa, were recorded, and the priests in the reign of Darius the Persian.
Levitae in diebus Eliasib, et Jojada, et Johanan, et Jeddoa, scripti principes familiarum, et sacerdotes in regno Darii Persae.

[23] The sons of Levi, heads of the families were written in the book of Chronicles, even unto the days of Jonathan the son of Eliasib.
Filii Levi principes familiarum, scripti in libro verborum dierum, et usque ad dies Jonathan, filii Eliasib.

[24] Now the chief of the Levites were Hasebia, Serebia, and Josue the son of Cedmihel: and their brethren by their courses, to praise and to give thanks according to the commandment of David the man of God, and to wait equally in order.
Et principes Levitarum, Hasebia, Serebia, et Josue filius Cedmihel : et fratres eorum per vices suas, ut laudarent et confiterentur juxta praeceptum David viri Dei, et observarent aeque per ordinem.

[25] Mathania, and Becbecia, Obedia, and Mosollam, Telmon, Accub, were keepers of the gates and of the entrances before the gates.
Mathania, et Becbecia, Obedia, Mosollam, Telmon, Accub, custodes portarum et vestibulorum ante portas.

[26] These were in the days of Joacim the son of Josue, the son of Josedec, and in the days of Nehemias the governor, and of Esdras the priest and scribe.
Hi in diebus Joacim filii Josue, filii Josedec, et in diebus Nehemiae ducis, et Esdrae sacerdotis scribaeque.

[27] And at the dedication of the wall of Jerusalem they sought the Levites out of all their places, to bring them to Jerusalem, and to keep the dedication, and to rejoice with thanksgiving, and with singing, and with cymbals, and psalteries and harps.
In dedicatione autem muri Jerusalem, requisierunt Levitas de omnibus locis suis ut adducerent eos in Jerusalem, et facerent dedicationem et laetitiam in actione gratiarum, et cantico, et in cymbalis, psalteriis, et citharis.

[28] And the sons of the singing men were gathered together out of the plain country about Jerusalem, and out of the villages of Nethuphati,
Congregati sunt autem filii cantorum de campestribus circa Jerusalem, et de villis Nethuphathi,

[29] And from the house of Galgal, and from the countries of Geba and Azmaveth: for the singing men had built themselves villages round about Jerusalem.
et de domo Galgal, et de regionibus Geba et Azmaveth : quoniam villas aedificaverunt sibi cantores in circuitu Jerusalem.

[30] And the priests and the Levites purified, and they purified the people, and the gates, and the wall.
Et mundati sunt sacerdotes et Levitae, et mundaverunt populum, et portas, et murum.

[31] And I made the princes of Juda go up upon the wall, and I appointed two great choirs to give praise. And they went on the right hand upon the wall toward the dunghill gate.
Ascendere autem feci principes Juda super murum, et statui duos magnos choros laudantium. Et ierunt ad dexteram super murum ad portam sterquilinii.

[32] And after them went Osaias, and half of the princes of Juda,
Et ivit post eos Osaias, et media pars principum Juda,

[33] And Azarias, Esdras, and Mosollam, Judas, and Benjamin, and Semeia, and Jeremias.
et Azarias, Esdras, et Mosollam, Judas, et Benjamin, et Semeia, et Jeremias.

[34] And of the sons of the priests with trumpets, Zacharias the son of Jonathan. the son of Semeia, the son of Mathania; the son of Michaia, the son of Zechur, the son of Asaph,
Et de filiis sacerdotum in tubis, Zacharias filius Jonathan, filius Semeiae, filius Mathaniae, filius Michaiae, filius Zechur, filius Asaph,

[35] And his brethren Semeia, and Azareel Malalai, Galalai, Maai, Nathanael, and Judas, and Hanani, with the musical instruments of David the man of God: and Esdras the scribe before them at the fountain gate.
et fratres ejus Semeia, et Azareel, Malalai, Galalai, Maai, Nathanael, et Judas, et Hanani, in vasis cantici David viri Dei : et Esdras scriba ante eos in porta fontis.

[36] And they went up over against them by the stairs of the city of David, at the going up of the wall of the house of David, and to the water gate eastward:
Et contra eos ascenderunt in gradibus civitatis David in ascensu muri super domum David, et usque ad portam aquarum ad orientem.

[37] And the second choir of them that gave thanks went on the opposite side, and I after them, and the half of the people upon the wall, and upon the tower of the furnaces, even to the broad wall,
Et chorus secundus gratias referentium ibat ex adverso, et ego post eum, et media pars populi super murum, et super turrim furnorum, et usque ad murum latissimum,

[38] And above the gate of Ephraim, and above the old gate, and above the fish gate and the tower of Hananeel, and the tower of Emath, and even to the flock gate: and they stood still in the watch gate.
et super portam Ephraim, et super portam antiquam, et super portam piscium et turrim Hananeel, et turrim Emath, et usque ad portam gregis : et steterunt in porta custodiae,

[39] And the two choirs of them that gave praise stood still at the house of God, and I and the half of the magistrates with me.
steteruntque duo chori laudantium in domo Dei, et ego, et dimidia pars magistratuum mecum.

[40] And the priests, Eliachim, Maasia, Miamin, Michea, Elioenai, Zacharia, Hanania with trumpets,
Et sacerdotes, Eliachim, Maasia, Miamin, Michea, Elioenai, Zacharia, Hanania in tubis,

[41] And Maasia, and Semeia, and Eleazar, and Azzi, and Johanan, and Melchia, and Elam, and Ezer. And the singers sung loud, and Jezraia was their overseer:
et Maasia, et Semeia, et Eleazar, et Azzi, et Johanan, et Melchia, et Aelam, et Ezer. Et clare cecinerunt cantores, et Jezraia praepositus :

[42] And they sacrificed on that day great sacrifices, and they rejoiced: for God had made them joyful with great joy: their wives also and their children rejoiced, and the joy of Jerusalem was heard afar off.
et immolaverunt in die illa victimas magnas, et laetati sunt : Deus enim laetificaverat eos laetitia magna : sed et uxores eorum, et liberi gavisi sunt, et audita est laetitia Jerusalem procul.

[43] They appointed also in that day men over the storehouses of the treasure, for the libations, and for the firstfruits, and for the tithes, that the rulers of the city might bring them in by them in honour of thanksgiving, for the priests and Levites: for Juda was joyful in the priests and Levites that assisted.
Recensuerunt quoque in die illa viros super gazophylacia thesauri ad libamina, et ad primitias, et ad decimas, ut introferrent per eos principes civitatis in decore gratiarum actionis, sacerdotes et Levitas : quia laetificatus est Juda in sacerdotibus et Levitis adstantibus.

[44] And they kept the watch of their God, and the observance of expiation, and the singing men, and the porters, according to the commandment of David, and of Solomon his son.
Et custodierunt observationem Dei sui, et observationem expiationis, et cantores, et janitores juxta praeceptum David, et Salomonis filii ejus,

[45] For in the days of David and Asaph from the beginning there were chief singers appointed, to praise with canticles, and give thanks to God.
quia in diebus David et Asaph ab exordio erant principes constituti cantorum in carmine laudantium et confitentium Deo.

[46] And all Israel, in the days of Zorobabel, and in the days of Nehemias gave portions to the singing men, and to the porters, day by day, and they sanctified the Levites, and the Levites sanctified the sons of Aaron.
Et omnis Israel, in diebus Zorobabel, et in diebus Nehemiae, dabant partes cantoribus et janitoribus per dies singulos, et sanctificabant Levitas, et Levitae sanctificabant filios Aaron.
