23 So they and their children had the oversight of the gates of the house of the Lord, even of the house of the Tabernacle by wards.
24 The porters were in four quarters Eastward, Westward, Northward and Southward.
25 And their brethren, which were in their towns, came at [i]seven days from time to time with them.
