The sons of Shemaiah [were] Othni, Rephael, Obed and Elzabad, whose brothers, Elihu and Semachiah, were valiant men.
All these [were] of the sons of Obed-edom; they and their sons and their relatives [were] able men with strength for the service, 62 from Obed-edom.
Meshelemiah had sons and relatives, 18 valiant men.
Also Hosah, [one] of the sons of Merari had sons: Shimri the first (although he was not the firstborn, his father made him first),
Hilkiah the second, Tebaliah the third, Zechariah the fourth; all the sons and relatives of Hosah [were] 13.
To these divisions of the gatekeepers, the chief men, [were given] duties like their relatives to minister in the house of the LORD.
They cast lots, the small and the great alike, according to their fathers' households, for every gate.
The lot to the east fell to Shelemiah. Then they cast lots [for] his son Zechariah, a counselor with insight, and his lot came out to the north.
For Obed-edom [it fell] to the south, and to his sons went the storehouse.
For Shuppim and Hosah [it was] to the west, by the gate of Shallecheth, on the ascending highway. Guard corresponded to guard.
On the east there were six Levites, on the north four daily, on the south four daily, and at the storehouse two by two.
At the Parbar on the west [there were] four at the highway and two at the Parbar.
These were the divisions of the gatekeepers of the sons of Korah and of the sons of Merari.
