وَٱللَّاَوِيُّونَ: يَشُوعُ وَبِنُّويُ وَقَدْمِيئِيلُ وَشَرَبْيَا وَيَهُوذَا وَمَتَّنْيَا ٱلَّذِي عَلَى ٱلتَّحْمِيدِ هُوَ وَإِخْوَتُهُ، ٨ 8
The Levites were Jeshua, Binnui, Kadmiel, Sherebiah, Judah, and Mattaniah, who was in charge of the thanksgiving songs, along with his associates.

وَيُويَادَاعُ وَلَدَ يُونَاثَانَ، وَيُونَاثَانُ وَلَدَ يَدُّوعَ. ١١ 11

وَفِي أَيَّامِ يُويَاقِيمَ كَانَ ٱلْكَهَنَةُ رُؤُوسُ ٱلْآبَاءِ: لِسَرَايَا مَرَايَا، وَلِيرْمِيَا حَنَنْيَا، ١٢ 12
In the days of Joiakim these were the priests, the leaders of the families: Meraiah was the leader of Seraiah, Hananiah was the leader of Jeremiah,

وَكَانَ ٱللَّاَوِيُّونَ فِي أَيَّامِ أَلِيَاشِيبَ وَيُويَادَاعَ وَيُوحَانَانَ وَيَدُّوعَ مَكْتُوبِينَ رُؤُوسَ آبَاءٍ، وَٱلْكَهَنَةُ أَيْضًا فِي مُلْكِ دَارِيُوسَ ٱلْفَارِسِيِّ. ٢٢ 22
In the days of Eliashib, the Levites Eliashib, Joiada, Johanan, and Jaddua were recorded as the heads of families, and the priests were recorded during the reign of Darius the Persian.
وَكَانَ بَنُو لَاوِي رُؤُوسُ ٱلْآبَاءِ مَكْتُوبِينَ فِي سِفْرِ أَخْبَارِ ٱلْأَيَّامِ إِلَى أَيَّامِ يُوحَانَانَ بْنِ أَلِيَاشِيبَ. ٢٣ 23
The descendants of Levi, their leaders of families were recorded in the book of the annals up to the days of Johanan son of Eliashib.
وَرُؤُوسُ ٱللَّاَوِيِّينَ: حَشَبْيَا وَشَرَبْيَا وَيَشُوعُ بْنُ قَدْمِيئِيلَ وَإِخْوَتُهُمْ مُقَابِلَهُمْ لِلتَّسْبِيحِ وَٱلتَّحْمِيدِ، حَسَبَ وَصِيَّةِ دَاوُدَ رَجُلِ ٱللهِ، نَوْبَةً مُقَابِلَ نَوْبَةٍ. ٢٤ 24
The leaders of the Levites were Hashabiah, Sherebiah, and Jeshua son of Kadmiel, with their associates, who stood opposite them to give praise and to give thanks, responding section by section, in obedience to the command of David, the man of God.
وَكَانَ مَتَّنْيَا وَبَقْبُقْيَا وَعُوبَدْيَا وَمَشُلَّامُ وَطَلْمُونُ وَعَقُّوبُ بَوَّابِينَ حَارِسِينَ ٱلْحِرَاسَةَ عِنْدَ مَخَازِنِ ٱلْأَبْوَابِ. ٢٥ 25
Mattaniah, Bakbukiah, Obadiah, Meshullam, Talmon, and Akkub were gatekeepers standing guard at the storerooms by the gates.
كَانَ هَؤُلَاءِ فِي أَيَّامِ يُويَاقِيمَ بْنِ يَشُوعَ بْنِ يُوصَادَاقَ، وَفِي أَيَّامِ نَحَمْيَا ٱلْوَالِي، وَعَزْرَا ٱلْكَاهِنِ ٱلْكَاتِبِ. ٢٦ 26
They served in the days of Joiakim son of Jeshua son of Jozadak, and in the days of Nehemiah the governor and of Ezra the priest and scribe.
وَعِنْدَ تَدْشِينِ سُورِ أُورُشَلِيمَ طَلَبُوا ٱللَّاَوِيِّينَ مِنْ جَمِيعِ أَمَاكِنِهِمْ لِيَأْتُوا بِهِمْ إِلَى أُورُشَلِيمَ، لِكَيْ يُدَشِّنُوا بِفَرَحٍ وَبِحَمْدٍ وَغِنَاءٍ بِٱلصُّنُوجِ وَٱلرَّبَابِ وَٱلْعِيدَانِ. ٢٧ 27
At the dedication of the wall of Jerusalem, the people sought out the Levites wherever they lived, to bring them to Jerusalem to celebrate the dedication with joy, with thanksgivings and singing with cymbals, harps, and with lyres.
فَٱجْتَمَعَ بَنُو ٱلْمُغَنِّينَ مِنَ ٱلدَّائِرَةِ حَوْلَ أُورُشَلِيمَ، وَمِنْ ضِيَاعِ ٱلنَّطُوفَاتِيِّ، ٢٨ 28
The fellowship of singers gathered together from the district around Jerusalem and from the villages of the Netophathites.
وَمِنْ بَيْتِ ٱلْجِلْجَالِ، وَمِنْ حُقُولِ جَبَعَ وَعَزْمُوتَ، لِأَنَّ ٱلْمُغَنِّينَ بَنَوْا لِأَنْفُسِهِمْ ضِيَاعًا حَوْلَ أُورُشَلِيمَ. ٢٩ 29
They also came from Beth Gilgal and from the fields of Geba and Azmaveth, for the singers had built for themselves villages around Jerusalem.
وَتَطَهَّرَ ٱلْكَهَنَةُ وَٱللَّاَوِيُّونَ، وَطَهَّرُوا ٱلشَّعْبَ وَٱلْأَبْوَابَ وَٱلسُّورَ. ٣٠ 30
The priests and the Levites purified themselves, and then they purified the people, the gates, and the wall.
وَأَصْعَدْتُ رُؤَسَاءَ يَهُوذَا عَلَى ٱلسُّورِ. وَأَقَمْتُ فِرْقَتَيْنِ عَظِيمَتَيْنِ مِنَ ٱلْحَمَّادِينَ، وَوَكَبَتِ ٱلْوَاحِدَةُ يَمِينًا عَلَى ٱلسُّورِ نَحْوَ بَابِ ٱلدِّمْنِ. ٣١ 31
Then I had the leaders of Judah go up to the top of the wall, and I appointed two large choirs who gave thanks. One went to the right on the wall toward the Dung Gate.
وَسَارَ وَرَاءَهُمْ هُوشَعْيَا وَنِصْفُ رُؤَسَاءِ يَهُوذَا، ٣٢ 32
Hoshaiah and half the leaders of Judah followed them,
وَعَزَرْيَا وَعَزْرَا وَمَشُلَّامُ، ٣٣ 33
and after them went Azariah, Ezra, Meshullam,
وَيَهُوذَا وَبَنْيَامِينُ وَشَمَعْيَا وَيِرْمِيَا، ٣٤ 34
Judah, Benjamin, Shemaiah, Jeremiah,
وَمِنْ بَنِي ٱلْكَهَنَةِ بِٱلْأَبْوَاقِ زَكَرِيَّا بْنُ يُونَاثَانَ بْنِ شَمَعْيَا بْنِ مَتَّنْيَا بْنِ مِيخَايَا بْنِ زَكُّورَ بْنِ آسَافَ، ٣٥ 35
and some of the priests' sons with trumpets, and Zechariah son of Jonathan son of Shemaiah son of Mattaniah son of Micaiah son of Zaccur son of Asaph.
وَإِخْوَتُهُ شَمَعْيَا وَعَزَرْئِيلُ وَمِلَلَايُ وَجِلَلَايُ وَمَاعَايُ وَنَثَنْئِيلُ وَيَهُوذَا وَحَنَانِي بِآلَاتِ غِنَاءِ دَاوُدَ رَجُلِ ٱللهِ، وَعَزْرَا ٱلْكَاتِبُ أَمَامَهُمْ. ٣٦ 36
There also were Zechariah's relatives, Shemaiah, Azarel, Milalai, Gilalai, Maai, Nethanel, Judah, Hanani, with the musical instruments of David the man of God. Ezra the scribe was in front of them.
وَعِنْدَ بَابِ ٱلْعَيْنِ ٱلَّذِي مُقَابِلَهُمْ صَعِدُوا عَلَى دَرَجِ مَدِينَةِ دَاوُدَ عِنْدَ مَصْعَدِ ٱلسُّورِ، فَوْقَ بَيْتِ دَاوُدَ، إِلَى بَابِ ٱلْمَاءِ شَرْقًا. ٣٧ 37
By the Fountain Gate they went straight up on the stairs of the city of David, by the stairway to the wall above David's palace, to the Water Gate on the east.
وَٱلْفِرْقَةُ ٱلثَّانِيَةُ مِنَ ٱلْحَمَّادِينَ وَكَبَتْ مُقَابِلَهُمْ، وَأَنَا وَرَاءَهَا، وَنِصْفُ ٱلشَّعْبِ عَلَى ٱلسُّورِ مِنْ عِنْدِ بُرْجِ ٱلتَّنَانِيرِ إِلَى ٱلسُّورِ ٱلْعَرِيضِ. ٣٨ 38
The other choir of those who gave thanks went in the other direction. I followed them on the wall with half the people, above the Tower of Ovens, to the Broad Wall,
وَمِنْ فَوْقِ بَابِ أَفْرَايِمَ وَفَوْقَ ٱلْبَابِ ٱلْعَتِيقِ وَفَوْقَ بَابِ ٱلسَّمَكِ وَبُرْجِ حَنَنْئِيلَ وَبُرْجِ ٱلْمِئَةِ إِلَى بَابِ ٱلضَّأْنِ، وَوَقَفُوا فِي بَابِ ٱلسِّجْنِ. ٣٩ 39
and above the Gate of Ephraim, and by the Old Gate, and by the Fish Gate and the Tower of Hananel and the Tower of the Hundred, to the Sheep Gate, and they stopped at the Gate of the Guard.
فَوَقَفَتْ ٱلْفِرْقَتَانِ مِنَ ٱلْحَمَّادِينَ فِي بَيْتِ ٱللهِ، وَأَنَا وَنِصْفُ ٱلْوُلَاةِ مَعِي، ٤٠ 40
So both choirs of those who gave thanks took their place in the house of God, and I also took my place with half of the officials with me.
وَٱلْكَهَنَةُ: أَلْيَاقِيمُ وَمَعْسِيَا وَمِنْيَامِينُ وَمِيخَايَا وَأَلْيُوعِينَايُ وَزَكَرِيَّا وَحَنَنْيَا بِٱلْأَبْوَاقِ، ٤١ 41
Then the priests took their place: Eliakim, Maaseiah, Miniamin, Micaiah, Elioenai, Zechariah, and Hananiah, with the trumpets,
وَمَعْسِيَا وَشَمَعْيَا وَأَلْعَازَارُ وَعُزِّي وَيَهُوحَانَانُ وَمَلْكِيَّا وَعِيلَامُ وعَازَرُ، وَغَنَّى ٱلْمُغَنُّونَ وَيِزْرَحْيَا ٱلْوَكِيلُ. ٤٢ 42
and also Maaseiah, Shemaiah, Eleazar, Uzzi, Jehohanan, Malchijah, Elam, and Ezer, and the singers made themselves heard and Jezrahiah was their leader.
وَذَبَحُوا فِي ذَلِكَ ٱلْيَوْمِ ذَبَائِحَ عَظِيمَةً وَفَرِحُوا، لِأَنَّ ٱللهَ أَفْرَحَهُمْ فَرَحًا عَظِيمًا. وَفَرِحَ ٱلْأَوْلَادُ وَٱلنِّسَاءُ أَيْضًا، وَسُمِعَ فَرَحُ أُورُشَلِيمَ عَنْ بُعْدٍ. ٤٣ 43
They offered great sacrifices that day, and rejoiced, for God had made them rejoice with great joy. Also the women and the children rejoiced. So the joy of Jerusalem could be heard far away.
وَتَوَكَّلَ فِي ذَلِكَ ٱلْيَوْمِ أُنَاسٌ عَلَى ٱلْمَخَادِعِ لِلْخَزَائِنِ وَٱلرَّفَائِعِ وَٱلْأَوَائِلِ وَٱلْأَعْشَارِ، لِيَجْمَعُوا فِيهَا مِنْ حُقُولِ ٱلْمُدُنِ أَنْصِبَةَ ٱلشَّرِيعَةِ لِلْكَهَنَةِ وَٱللَّاَوِيِّينَ، لِأَنَّ يَهُوذَا فَرِحَ بِٱلْكَهَنَةِ وَٱللَّاَوِيِّينَ ٱلْوَاقِفِينَ ٤٤ 44
On that day men were appointed to be in charge of the storerooms for the contributions, the firstfruits, and the tithes, to gather into them the portions required by the law for the priests and for the Levites. Each was assigned to work the fields near the towns. For Judah rejoiced over the priests and the Levites who were standing before them.
حَارِسِينَ حِرَاسَةَ إِلَهِهِمْ وَحِرَاسَةَ ٱلتَّطْهِيرِ. وَكَانَ ٱلْمُغَنُّونَ وَٱلْبَوَّابُونَ حَسَبَ وَصِيَّةِ دَاوُدَ وَسُلَيْمَانَ ٱبْنِهِ. ٤٥ 45
They performed the service of their God, and the service of purification, and so did the singers and the gatekeepers, in keeping with the command of David and of Solomon his son.
لِأَنَّهُ فِي أَيَّامِ دَاوُدَ وَآسَافَ مُنْذُ ٱلْقَدِيمِ كَانَ رُؤُوسُ مُغَنِّينَ وَغِنَاءُ تَسْبِيحٍ وَتَحْمِيدٍ لِلهِ. ٤٦ 46
For long ago, in the days of David and Asaph, there were directors of singers, and there were songs of praise and thanksgiving to God.
وَكَانَ كُلُّ إِسْرَائِيلَ فِي أَيَّامِ زَرُبَّابِلَ وَأَيَّامِ نَحَمْيَا يُؤَدُّونَ أَنْصِبَةَ ٱلْمُغَنِّينَ وَٱلْبَوَّابِينَ أَمْرَ كُلِّ يَوْمٍ فِي يَوْمِهِ، وَكَانُوا يُقَدِّسُونَ لِلَّاوِيِّينَ، وَكَانَ ٱللَّاوِيُّونَ يُقَدِّسُونَ لِبَنِي هَارُونَ. ٤٧ 47
In the days of Zerubbabel and in the days of Nehemiah, all Israel gave the daily portions for the singers and the gatekeepers. They set aside the portion that was for the Levites, and the Levites set aside a portion for the descendants of Aaron.
