22 And the overseer of the Levites at Jerusalem [was] Uzzi the son of Bani, the son of Hashabiah, the son of Mattaniah, the son of Micha. Of the sons of Asaph, the singers [were] over the business of the house of God.

23 For [it was] the king's commandment concerning them that a certain portion should be for the singers, due for every day.

24 And Pethahiah the son of Meshezabeel, of the sons of Zerah the son of Judah, [was] at the king's hand in all matters concerning the people.
