1 Chr 9:17

9:17 gatekeepers. There is a list of gatekeepers in 26:1–19. This list reaches to the time of David (vv. 23, 24). The cycles of duty of the gatekeepers is described, evidently as a model for the new generation. David’s tabernacle required twenty-four guards. Assignments and rotations were made by lot (26:12–18).
