“Twenty-four thousand of them will supervise the work at the Temple,” David instructed, “6,000 are to be bailiffs and judges, 4,000 will be Temple guards, and 4,000 will praise the Lord with the musical instruments I have made.”
At the same time he brought together all the leaders of Israel, the priests, and the Levites. The Levites thirty years and older were counted; the total was thirty-eight thousand. David sorted them into work groups: “Twenty-four thousand are in charge of administering worship in the sanctuary; six thousand are officials and judges; four thousand are security guards; and four thousand are to serve in the orchestra, praising God with instruments that I have provided for praise.”
and four thousand that were porters of gates and doors, and so many singers, singing to the Lord in organs, which David had made for to sing with. (and four thousand were made the guards, or the doorkeepers, of the gates and the doors, and as many singers sang to the Lord with the instruments which David had made to sing with.)
