58The total of the Temple servants and the descendants of Solomon's servants was 392.
59Those who came from the towns of Tel-melah, Tel-harsha, Kerub, Addan, and Immer could not prove their family genealogy, or even that they were descendants of Israel.
60They included the families of Delaiah, Tobiah, and Nekoda, 652 in total.
61In addition there three priestly families, sons of Hobaiah, Hakkoz, and Barzillai. (Barzillai had married a woman descended from Barzillai of Gilead, and he was called by that name.)
62They searched for a record of them in the genealogies, but their names weren't found, so they were barred from serving as priests.
63The governor instructed them not to eat anything from the sanctuary sacrifices until a priest could ask the Lord about the issue by using the Urim and Thummim.
64The total of number of people returning was 42,360.
65In addition there were 7,337 servants and 200 male and female singers.
66They had 736 horses, 245 mules,
67435 camels, and 6,720 donkeys.
68When they arrived at the Temple of the Lord in Jerusalem, some of the family leaders made voluntary contributions toward the rebuilding of God's Temple where it had once stood.
69They gave depending on how much they had, putting their gift into the treasury. The total came to 61,000 gold daric coins, 5,000 minas of silver, and 100 robes for the priests.
70The priests, the Levites, the singers, the gatekeepers, the Temple servants, as well as some of the people went back to live in their specific towns. The others returned to their own towns throughout Israel.
