for a possession
Ezekiel 40:17
Then he brought me into the outer court, and behold, [there were] chambers and a pavement made for the court all around; thirty chambers faced the pavement.
1 Chronicles 9:26-33
for the four chief gatekeepers who [were] Levites, were in an office of trust, and were over the chambers and over the treasuries in the house of God.
They spent the night around the house of God, because the watch was committed to them; and they [were] in charge of opening [it] morning by morning.
Now some of them had charge of the utensils of service, for they counted them when they brought them in and when they took them out.
Some of them also were appointed over the furniture and over all the utensils of the sanctuary and over the fine flour and the wine and the oil and the frankincense and the spices.
Some of the sons of the priests prepared the mixing of the spices.
Mattithiah, one of the Levites, who was the firstborn of Shallum the Korahite, had the responsibility over the things which were baked in pans.
Some of their relatives of the sons of the Kohathites [were] over the showbread to prepare it every sabbath.
Now these are the singers, heads of fathers' [households] of the Levites, [who lived] in the chambers [of the temple] free [from other service]; for they were engaged in their work day and night.

The priest, the son of Aaron, shall be with the Levites when the Levites receive tithes, and the Levites shall bring up the tenth of the tithes to the house of our God, to the chambers of the storehouse.
Nehemiah 10:39
For the sons of Israel and the sons of Levi shall bring the contribution of the grain, the new wine and the oil to the chambers; there are the utensils of the sanctuary, the priests who are ministering, the gatekeepers and the singers. Thus we will not neglect the house of our God.
