1 Chronicles 23:1-32
1. When David was old and full of days, he made Solomon his son king over Israel.
2. David assembled all the leaders of Israel and the priests and the Levites.
3. The Levites, thirty years old and upward, were numbered, and the total was 38,000 men.
4. "Twenty-four thousand of these," David said, "shall have charge of the work in the house of the LORD, 6,000 shall be officers and judges,
5. 4,000 gatekeepers, and 4,000 shall offer praises to the LORD with the instruments that I have made for praise."
6. And David organized them in divisions corresponding to the sons of Levi: Gershon, Kohath, and Merari.
7. The sons of Gershon were Ladan and Shimei.
8. The sons of Ladan: Jehiel the chief, and Zetham, and Joel, three.
9. The sons of Shimei: Shelomoth, Haziel, and Haran, three. These were the heads of the fathers' houses of Ladan.
10. And the sons of Shimei: Jahath, Zina, and Jeush and Beriah. These four were the sons of Shimei.
11. Jahath was the chief, and Zizah the second; but Jeush and Beriah did not have many sons, therefore they became counted as a single father's house.
12. The sons of Kohath: Amram, Izhar, Hebron, and Uzziel, four.
13. The sons of Amram: Aaron and Moses. Aaron was set apart to dedicate the most holy things, that he and his sons forever should make offerings before the LORD and minister to him and pronounce blessings in his name forever.
14. But the sons of Moses the man of God were named among the tribe of Levi.
15. The sons of Moses: Gershom and Eliezer.
16. The sons of Gershom: Shebuel the chief.
17. The sons of Eliezer: Rehabiah the chief. Eliezer had no other sons, but the sons of Rehabiah were very many.
18. The sons of Izhar: Shelomith the chief.
19. The sons of Hebron: Jeriah the chief, Amariah the second, Jahaziel the third, and Jekameam the fourth.
20. The sons of Uzziel: Micah the chief and Isshiah the second.
21. The sons of Merari: Mahli and Mushi. The sons of Mahli: Eleazar and Kish.
22. Eleazar died having no sons, but only daughters; their kinsmen, the sons of Kish, married them.
23. The sons of Mushi: Mahli, Eder, and Jeremoth, three.
24. These were the sons of Levi by their fathers' houses, the heads of fathers' houses as they were listed according to the number of the names of the individuals from twenty years old and upward who were to do the work for the service of the house of the LORD.
25. For David said, "The LORD, the God of Israel, has given rest to his people, and he dwells in Jerusalem forever.
26. And so the Levites no longer need to carry the tabernacle or any of the things for its service."
27. For by the last words of David the sons of Levi were numbered from twenty years old and upward.
28. For their duty was to assist the sons of Aaron for the service of the house of the LORD, having the care of the courts and the chambers, the cleansing of all that is holy, and any work for the service of the house of God.
29. Their duty was also to assist with the showbread, the flour for the grain offering, the wafers of unleavened bread, the baked offering, the offering mixed with oil, and all measures of quantity or size.
30. And they were to stand every morning, thanking and praising the LORD, and likewise at evening,
31. and whenever burnt offerings were offered to the LORD on Sabbaths, new moons and feast days, according to the number required of them, regularly before the LORD.
32. Thus they were to keep charge of the tent of meeting and the sanctuary, and to attend the sons of Aaron, their brothers, for the service of the house of the LORD.

1 Chronicles 24:1-31
1. The divisions of the sons of Aaron were these. The sons of Aaron: Nadab, Abihu, Eleazar, and Ithamar.
2. But Nadab and Abihu died before their father and had no children, so Eleazar and Ithamar became the priests.
3. With the help of Zadok of the sons of Eleazar, and Ahimelech of the sons of Ithamar, David organized them according to the appointed duties in their service.
4. Since more chief men were found among the sons of Eleazar than among the sons of Ithamar, they organized them under sixteen heads of fathers' houses of the sons of Eleazar, and eight of the sons of Ithamar.
5. They divided them by lot, all alike, for there were sacred officers and officers of God among both the sons of Eleazar and the sons of Ithamar.
6. And the scribe Shemaiah, the son of Nethanel, a Levite, recorded them in the presence of the king and the princes and Zadok the priest and Ahimelech the son of Abiathar and the heads of the fathers' houses of the priests and of the Levites, one father's house being chosen for Eleazar and one chosen for Ithamar.
7. The first lot fell to Jehoiarib, the second to Jedaiah,
8. the third to Harim, the fourth to Seorim,
9. the fifth to Malchijah, the sixth to Mijamin,
10. the seventh to Hakkoz, the eighth to Abijah,
11. the ninth to Jeshua, the tenth to Shecaniah,
12. the eleventh to Eliashib, the twelfth to Jakim,
13. the thirteenth to Huppah, the fourteenth to Jeshebeab,
14. the fifteenth to Bilgah, the sixteenth to Immer,
15. the seventeenth to Hezir, the eighteenth to Happizzez,
16. the nineteenth to Pethahiah, the twentieth to Jehezkel,
17. the twenty-first to Jachin, the twenty-second to Gamul,
18. the twenty-third to Delaiah, the twenty-fourth to Maaziah.
19. These had as their appointed duty in their service to come into the house of the LORD according to the procedure established for them by Aaron their father, as the LORD God of Israel had commanded him.
20. And of the rest of the sons of Levi: of the sons of Amram, Shubael; of the sons of Shubael, Jehdeiah.
21. Of Rehabiah: of the sons of Rehabiah, Isshiah the chief.
22. Of the Izharites, Shelomoth; of the sons of Shelomoth, Jahath.
23. The sons of Hebron: Jeriah the chief, Amariah the second, Jahaziel the third, Jekameam the fourth.
24. The sons of Uzziel, Micah; of the sons of Micah, Shamir.
25. The brother of Micah, Isshiah; of the sons of Isshiah, Zechariah.
26. The sons of Merari: Mahli and Mushi. The sons of Jaaziah: Beno.
27. The sons of Merari: of Jaaziah, Beno, Shoham, Zaccur and Ibri.
28. Of Mahli: Eleazar, who had no sons.
29. Of Kish, the sons of Kish: Jerahmeel.
30. The sons of Mushi: Mahli, Eder, and Jerimoth. These were the sons of the Levites according to their fathers' houses.
31. These also, the head of each father's house and his younger brother alike, cast lots, just as their brothers the sons of Aaron, in the presence of King David, Zadok, Ahimelech, and the heads of fathers' houses of the priests and of the Levites.

1 Chronicles 25:1-30
1. David and the chiefs of the service also set apart for the service the sons of Asaph, and of Heman, and of Jeduthun, who prophesied with lyres, with harps, and with cymbals. The list of those who did the work and of their duties was:
2. Of the sons of Asaph: Zaccur, Joseph, Nethaniah, and Asharelah, sons of Asaph, under the direction of Asaph, who prophesied under the direction of the king.
3. Of Jeduthun, the sons of Jeduthun: Gedaliah, Zeri, Jeshaiah, Shimei, Hashabiah, and Mattithiah, six, under the direction of their father Jeduthun, who prophesied with the lyre in thanksgiving and praise to the LORD.

5. All these were the sons of Heman the king's seer, according to the promise of God to exalt him, for God had given Heman fourteen sons and three daughters.
6. They were all under the direction of their father in the music in the house of the LORD with cymbals, harps, and lyres for the service of the house of God. Asaph, Jeduthun, and Heman were under the order of the king.
7. The number of them along with their brothers, who were trained in singing to the LORD, all who were skillful, was 288.

Psalms 78:40-55
40. How often they rebelled against him in the wilderness and grieved him in the desert!
41. They tested God again and again and provoked the Holy One of Israel.
42. They did not remember his power or the day when he redeemed them from the foe,
43. when he performed his signs in Egypt and his marvels in the fields of Zoan.
44. He turned their rivers to blood, so that they could not drink of their streams.
45. He sent among them swarms of flies, which devoured them, and frogs, which destroyed them.
46. He gave their crops to the destroying locust and the fruit of their labor to the locust.
47. He destroyed their vines with hail and their sycamores with frost.
48. He gave over their cattle to the hail and their flocks to thunderbolts.
49. He let loose on them his burning anger, wrath, indignation, and distress, a company of destroying angels.
50. He made a path for his anger; he did not spare them from death, but gave their lives over to the plague.
51. He struck down every firstborn in Egypt, the firstfruits of their strength in the tents of Ham.
52. Then he led out his people like sheep and guided them in the wilderness like a flock.
53. He led them in safety, so that they were not afraid, but the sea overwhelmed their enemies.
54. And he brought them to his holy land, to the mountain which his right hand had won.
55. He drove out nations before them; he apportioned them for a possession and settled the tribes of Israel in their tents.

Proverbs 20:3-3
3. It is an honor for a man to keep aloof from strife, but every fool will be quarreling.

Acts 9:22-43
22. But Saul increased all the more in strength, and confounded the Jews who lived in Damascus by proving that Jesus was the Christ.
23. When many days had passed, the Jews plotted to kill him,
24. but their plot became known to Saul. They were watching the gates day and night in order to kill him,
25. but his disciples took him by night and let him down through an opening in the wall, lowering him in a basket.
26. And when he had come to Jerusalem, he attempted to join the disciples. And they were all afraid of him, for they did not believe that he was a disciple.
27. But Barnabas took him and brought him to the apostles and declared to them how on the road he had seen the Lord, who spoke to him, and how at Damascus he had preached boldly in the name of Jesus.
28. So he went in and out among them at Jerusalem, preaching boldly in the name of the Lord.
29. And he spoke and disputed against the Hellenists. But they were seeking to kill him.
30. And when the brothers learned this, they brought him down to Caesarea and sent him off to Tarsus.
31. So the church throughout all Judea and Galilee and Samaria had peace and was being built up. And walking in the fear of the Lord and in the comfort of the Holy Spirit, it multiplied.
32. Now as Peter went here and there among them all, he came down also to the saints who lived at Lydda.
33. There he found a man named Aeneas, bedridden for eight years, who was paralyzed.
34. And Peter said to him, "Aeneas, Jesus Christ heals you; rise and make your bed." And immediately he rose.
35. And all the residents of Lydda and Sharon saw him, and they turned to the Lord.
36. Now there was in Joppa a disciple named Tabitha, which, translated, means Dorcas. She was full of good works and acts of charity.
37. In those days she became ill and died, and when they had washed her, they laid her in an upper room.
38. Since Lydda was near Joppa, the disciples, hearing that Peter was there, sent two men to him, urging him, "Please come to us without delay."
39. So Peter rose and went with them. And when he arrived, they took him to the upper room. All the widows stood beside him weeping and showing tunics and other garments that Dorcas made while she was with them.
40. But Peter put them all outside, and knelt down and prayed; and turning to the body he said, "Tabitha, arise." And she opened her eyes, and when she saw Peter she sat up.
41. And he gave her his hand and raised her up. Then calling the saints and widows, he presented her alive.
42. And it became known throughout all Joppa, and many believed in the Lord.
43. And he stayed in Joppa for many days with one Simon, a tanner.
