There was a ward over against the ward of the ascent eastward, six men in a day, and four for the north, and four for the south, and at the Esephim two to relieve guard, and four by the west, and two to relieve guard at the pathway. 19 These are the divisions of the porters for the sons of Core, and to the sons of Merari.

29 For the 4Issaarites, Chonenia, and his sons were over the outward ministration over Israel, to record and to judge. 30 For the 5Chebronites, Asabias and his brethren, a thousand and seven hundred mighty men, were over the charge of Israel beyond Jordan westward, for all the service of the Lord and work of the king. 31 Of the family of Chebron Urias was chief, even of the Chebronites according to their generations, according to their families.
