1 The number of them that returned to Jerusalem with Ezra. 21 He causeth them to fast. 24 He admonisheth the Priests of their duty. 31 What they did when they came to Jerusalem. These are now the chief fathers of them, and the genealogy of them that came up with me from Babel, in the reign of king Artaxerxes.
These are the family heads and those who signed up to go up with me from Babylon in the reign of Artaxerxes the king: From the family of Phinehas: Gershom Family of Ithamar: Daniel Family of David: Hattush Family of Shecaniah Family of Parosh: Zechariah, and with him 150 men signed up Family of Pahath-Moab: Eliehoenai son of Zerahiah, and 200 men Family of Zattu: Shecaniah son of Jahaziel, and 300 men Family of Adin: Ebed son of Jonathan, and 50 men Family of Elam: Jeshaiah son of Athaliah, and 70 men Family of Shephatiah: Zebadiah son of Michael, and 80 men Family of Joab: Obadiah son of Jehiel, and 218 men Family of Bani: Shelomith son of Josiphiah, and 160 men Family of Bebai: Zechariah son of Bebai, and 28 men Family of Azgad: Johanan son of Hakkatan, and 110 men Family of Adonikam (bringing up the rear): their names were Eliphelet, Jeuel, Shemaiah, and 60 men Family of Bigvai: Uthai and Zaccur, and 70 men.
