9:1 So all Israel were reckoned by genealogies; and, behold, they [were] written in the book of the kings of Israel and Judah, [who] were a carried away to Babylon for their transgression.

    (a) Until now he has described their genealogies before they went into captivity, and now he describes their history after their return.
9:2 Now the first inhabitants that [dwelt] in their possessions in their cities [were], the Israelites, the priests, Levites, and the b Nethinims.
    (b) Meaning, the Gibeonites, who served in the temple, read (Jos 9:23).
9:11 And Azariah the son of Hilkiah, the son of Meshullam, the son of Zadok, the son of Meraioth, the son of Ahitub, the c ruler of the house of God;
    (c) That is, he was the high priest.
9:13 And their brethren, heads of the house of their fathers, a thousand and seven hundred and threescore; very able men for the d work of the service of the house of God.
    (d) To serve in the temple, every one according to his office.
9:18 Who hitherto [waited] in the e king's gate eastward: they [were] porters in the companies of the children of Levi.
    (e) So called because the king came into the temple by it, and not the common people.
9:19 And Shallum the son of Kore, the son of Ebiasaph, the son of Korah, and his brethren, of the house of his father, the Korahites, [were] over the work of the service, keepers of the gates of the f tabernacle: and their fathers, [being] over the host of the LORD, [were] keepers of the entry.
    (f) Their charge was that no one should enter those places, which were only appointed for the priests to minister in.

9:25 And their brethren, [which were] in their villages, [were] to come after g seven days from time to time with them.

    (g) They served weekly, as in (Ex 29:30).
9:29 [Some] of them also [were] appointed to oversee the vessels, and all the instruments of the sanctuary, and the fine h flour, and the wine, and the oil, and the frankincense, and the spices.
    (h) Of which the meat offering was made, (Le 2:8).
9:33 And these [are] the singers, chief of the fathers of the Levites, [who remaining] in the chambers i [were] free: for they were employed in [that] work day and night.
    (i) But were continually occupied in singing praises to God.
9:42 And Ahaz begat k Jarah; and Jarah begat Alemeth, and Azmaveth, and Zimri; and Zimri begat Moza;
    (k) Who was also called Jehoiada, (1Ch 8:36).
