2 He gathered together all the princes of Israel, with the priests and the Levites.
3 The Levites were numbered from thirty years old and upward: and their number by their polls, man by man, was thirty-eight thousand.
4 Of these, twenty-four thousand were to oversee the work of the house of Yahweh; and six thousand were officers and judges;
5 and four thousand were doorkeepers; and four thousand praised Yahweh with the instruments which I made, [said David], for giving praise.
6 David divided them into divisions according to the sons of Levi: Gershon, Kohath, and Merari.
