Giddel, the children of Gahar, the children of Reaiah; 48the children of Rezin, the children of Nekoda, the children of Gazzam; 49the children of Uzza, the children of Paseah, the children of Besai; 50the children of Asnah, the children of Meunim, the children of Nephusim; 51the children of Bakbuk, the children of Hakupha, the children of Harhur; 52the children of Bazluth, the children of Mehida, the children of Harsha; 53the children of Barkos, the children of Sisera, the children of Temah; 54the children of Neziah, the children of Hatipha.

55The children of Solomon's servants: the children of Sotai, the children of Hassophereth, the children of Peruda; 56the children of Jaalah, the children of Darkon, the children of Giddel; 57the children of Shephatiah, the children of Hattil, the children of Pochereth-hazzebaim, the children of Ami.

59And these were they that went up from Tel-melah, Tel-harsa, Cherub, Addan, and Immer; but they could not tell their fathers' houses, and their seed, whether they were of Israel: 60the children of Delaiah, the children of Tobiah, the children of Nekoda, six hundred fifty and two. 61And of the children of the priests: the children of Habaiah, the children of Hakkoz, the children of Barzillai, who took a wife of the daughters of Barzillai the Gileadite, and was called after their name. 62These sought their register, that is, the genealogy, but it was not found; therefore were they deemed polluted and put from the priesthood. 63And the [1]Tirshatha said unto them, that they should not eat of the most holy things, till there stood up a priest with Urim and with Thummim.
