1 Chronicles 26:1-32
1. FOR THE divisions of the gatekeepers: Of the Korahites was: Meshelemiah son of Kore, of the sons of Asaph.
2. And Meshelemiah had sons: Zechariah the firstborn, Jediael the second, Zebadiah the third, Jathniel the fourth,
3. Elam the fifth, Jehohanan the sixth, Eliehoenai the seventh.
4. Obed-edom had sons: Shemaiah the firstborn, Jehozabad the second, Joah the third, Sacar the fourth, Nethanel the fifth,
5. Ammiel the sixth, Issachar the seventh, Peullethai the eighth; for God blessed him.
6. Also to Shemaiah his son were sons born, who were rulers in their fathers' houses, for they were mighty men of ability and courage.
7. The sons of Shemaiah: Othni, Rephael, Obed, and Elzabad, whose brethren were strong and able men, Elihu and Semachiah.
8. All these were sons of Obed-edom [in whose house the ark was kept], with their sons and brethren, strong and able men for the service--sixty-two in all. [I Chron. 13:13, 14.]
9. Meshelemiah had sons and brethren, strong and able men--eighteen in all.
10. Also Hosah, of the sons of Merari, had sons: Shimri the chief (he was not the firstborn, yet his father made him chief),
11. Hilkiah the second, Tebaliah the third, Zechariah the fourth; all the sons and brethren of Hosah were thirteen in all.
12. Of these were the divisions of the gatekeepers, even of the chief men, having duties, as did their brethren, to minister in the house of the Lord.
13. And they cast lots by fathers' houses, small and great alike, for every gate.
14. The lot for the east fell to Shelemiah. They cast lots also for Zechariah his son, a wise counselor, and his lot came out for the north.
15. To Obed-edom it came out for the south, and to his sons the storehouse was allotted.
16. To Shuppim and Hosah the lot fell for the west, by the refuse gate that goes into the ascending highway, post opposite post.
17. On the east were six Levites, on the north four a day, on the south four a day, and two by two at the storehouse.
18. At the colonnade on the west side [of the outer court of the temple], there were four at the road and two at the colonnade.
19. These were the divisions of the gatekeepers among the Korahites and the sons of Merari.
20. Of the Levites, Ahijah was over the treasuries of the house of God and the treasuries of the dedicated gifts.
21. The sons of Ladan, the descendants of Gershon through Ladan, the heads of families of Ladan the Gershonite: Jehieli,
22. The sons of Jehieli, Zetham and Joel his brother, who were over the treasuries of the house of the Lord.
23. Of the Amramites, Izharites, Hebronites, and Uzzielites:
24. Shebuel son of Gershom, the son of Moses, was ruler over the treasuries.
25. His brethren from Eliezer were his son Rehabiah, his son Jeshaiah, his son Joram, his son Zichri, and his son Shelomoth.
26. This Shelomoth and his brethren were over all the treasuries of the dedicated gifts, which King David, the heads of the fathers' houses, the officers over thousands and hundreds, and the commanders of the army had dedicated.
27. From spoil won in battles they dedicated gifts to maintain the house of the Lord.
28. Also all that Samuel the seer, Saul son of Kish, Abner son of Ner, and Joab son of Zeruiah had dedicated, and whatever anyone had dedicated, it was in the charge of Shelomoth and his brethren.
29. Of the Izharites: Chenaniah and his sons were appointed to outside duties for Israel, as officers and judges.
30. Of the Hebronites: Hashabiah and his brethren, men of courage and ability, 1,700 in all, were officers over Israel on the west side of the Jordan in all the Lord's business and the king's service.
31. Of the Hebronites: Jerijah was the chief, according to their generations by fathers' houses. In the fortieth year of David's reign a search was made, and men of great courage and ability were found among them at Jazer in Gilead.
32. Jerijah's kinsmen, men of courage and ability, were 2,700 heads of fathers' houses; King David made them overseers of the Reubenites, the Gadites, and the half-tribe of Manasseh, for everything pertaining to God and for the affairs of the king.

Psalms 78:56-66
56. Yet they tempted and provoked and rebelled against the Most High God and kept not His testimonies.
57. But they turned back and dealt unfaithfully and treacherously like their fathers; they were twisted like a warped and deceitful bow [that will not respond to the archer's aim].
58. For they provoked Him to [righteous] anger with their high places [for idol worship] and moved Him to jealousy with their graven images.
59. When God heard this, He was full of [holy] wrath; and He utterly rejected Israel, greatly abhorring and loathing [her ways],
60. So that He forsook the tabernacle at Shiloh, the tent in which He had dwelt among men [and never returned to it again],
61. And delivered His strength and power (the ark of the covenant) into captivity, and His glory into the hands of the foe (the Philistines). [I Sam. 4:21.]
62. He gave His people over also to the sword and was wroth with His heritage [Israel]. [I Sam. 4:10.]
63. The fire [of war] devoured their young men, and their bereaved virgins were not praised in a wedding song.
64. Their priests [Hophni and Phinehas] fell by the sword, and their widows made no lamentation [for the bodies came not back from the scene of battle, and the widow of Phinehas also died that day]. [I Sam. 4:11, 19, 20.]
65. Then the Lord awakened as from sleep, as a strong man whose consciousness of power is heightened by wine.
66. And He smote His adversaries in the back [as they fled]; He put them to lasting shame and reproach.

Proverbs 20:4-5
4. The sluggard does not plow when winter sets in; therefore he begs in harvest and has nothing.
5. Counsel in the heart of man is like water in a deep well, but a man of understanding draws it out. [Prov. 18:4.]

Acts 10:1-23
1. NOW [living] at Caesarea there was a man whose name was Cornelius, a centurion (captain) of what was known as the Italian Regiment,
2. A devout man who venerated God and treated Him with reverential obedience, as did all his household; and he gave much alms to the people and prayed continually to God.
3. About the ninth hour (about 3:00 p.m.) of the day he saw clearly in a vision an angel of God entering and saying to him, Cornelius!
4. And he, gazing intently at him, became frightened and said, What is it, Lord? And the angel said to him, Your prayers and your [generous] gifts to the poor have come up [as a sacrifice] to God and have been remembered by Him.
5. And now send men to Joppa and have them call for and invite here a certain Simon whose surname is Peter;
6. He is lodging with Simon a tanner, whose house is by the seaside.
7. When the angel who spoke to him had left, Cornelius called two of his servants and a God-fearing soldier from among his own personal attendants.
8. And having rehearsed everything to them, he sent them to Joppa.
9. The next day as they were still on their way and were approaching the town, Peter went up to the roof of the house to pray, about the sixth hour (noon).
10. But he became very hungry, and wanted something to eat; and while the meal was being prepared a trance came over him,
11. And he saw the sky opened and something like a great sheet lowered by the four corners, descending to the earth.
12. It contained all kinds of quadrupeds and wild beasts and creeping things of the earth and birds of the air.
13. And there came a voice to him, saying, Rise up, Peter, kill and eat.
14. But Peter said, No, by no means, Lord; for I have never eaten anything that is common and unhallowed or [ceremonially] unclean.
15. And the voice came to him again a second time, What God has cleansed and pronounced clean, do not you defile and profane by regarding and calling common and unhallowed or unclean.
16. This occurred three times; then immediately the sheet was taken up to heaven.
17. Now Peter was still inwardly perplexed and doubted as to what the vision which he had seen could mean, when [just then] behold the messengers that were sent by Cornelius, who had made inquiry for Simon's house, stopped and stood before the gate.
18. And they called out to inquire whether Simon who was surnamed Peter was staying there.
19. And while Peter was earnestly revolving the vision in his mind and meditating on it, the [Holy] Spirit said to him, Behold, three men are looking for you!
20. Get up and go below and accompany them without any doubt [about its legality] or any discrimination or hesitation, for I have sent them.
21. Then Peter went down to the men and said, I am the man you seek; what is the purpose of your coming?
22. And they said, Cornelius, a centurion (captain) who is just and upright and in right standing with God, being God-fearing and obedient and well spoken of by the whole Jewish nation, has been instructed by a holy angel to send for you to come to his house; and he has received in answer [to prayer] a warning to listen to and act upon what you have to say.
23. So Peter invited them in to be his guests [for the night]. The next day he arose and went away with them, and some of the brethren from Joppa accompanied him.
