1 Chronicles 22-26
David begins preparing material to build the temple, and commands Solomon to build the temple in Jerusalem. David explains to him that God told him that he could not build the temple because he was a man of war, and therefore ceremonially unclean. Solomon, however, would be a man of ‘rest’.
David makes three divisions of Levites, to look after the temple, to judge, and to play music. The Kohathites are the Aaronic priests who deal with the most holy things. The duties of the Levites are listed: purifying, seeing to the showbread, singing praises in the morning and evening, making offerings etc.
A schedule of service is devised, with the Levites divided by lot into twenty-four sections. The Aaronic Levites are listed, then the remaining Levites.
Sons of Asaph, Jeduthun and Heman lead twenty-four groups of musicians for praising God. Lots are drawn, and the groups ordered and listed.
Names of Levite guards, officers, judges and workers of the temple and its service are listed.
