upon the wall, and appointed two great companies of them that gave thanks, and went in procession whereof one went on the

right hand upon the wall toward the dung gate : and after them 100 went Hoshaiah, and half of the princes of Judah, and Azariah,

Ezra, and Meshullam, Judah, and Benjamin, and Shemaiah, and Jeremiah, and certain of the priests' sons with trumpets ; namely, Zechariah the son of Jonathan, the son of Shemaiah,

the son of Mattaniah, the son of Michaiah, the son of Zaccur, 105

the son of Asaph : and his brethren, Shemaiah, and Azarael, Milalai, Gilalai, Maai, Nethaneel, and Judah, Hanani, with the musical instruments of David the man of God, and Ezra the scribe before them. And their course was unto the fountain gate, and going straight forward, they went up by the stairs of the city of David, at the going up of the wall, 2 above the 3 house of David, even unto the water gate eastward. And the other company of them that gave thanks went to the left, and I after them, and the half of the people upon the wall, above the

tower of the furnaces even unto the broad wall ; and above the 115 gate of Ephraim, and by the old gate, and by the fish gate, and

the tower of Hananeel, and the tower of Meah, even unto the sheep gate : and they stood still in the prison gate. So stood the two companies of thein that gave thanks in the house of

God, and I, and the half of the deputies with me: and the 120 priests; Eliakim, Maaseiah, Miniamin, Michaiah, Elioenai,

Zechariah, and Hananiah, with trumpets ; and Maaseiah, and Shemaiah, and Eleazar, and Uzzi, and Jehohanan, and Malchijah, and Elam, and Ezer. And the singers sang loud, with Jezrahiah

their overseer. Also that day they offered great sacrifices, and 125 rejoiced : for God had made them rejoice with great joy : the

wives also and the children rejoiced : so that the joy of Jerusalem was heard even afar off.
