Bible: Ezra 2:58-63

2:58 All the temple servants and the descendants of the servants of Solomon: 392.

2:59 These are the ones that came up from Tel Melah, Tel Harsha, Kerub, Addon, and Immer (although they were unable to certify 1  their family connection 2  or their ancestry, 3  as to whether they really were from Israel):

2:60 the descendants of Delaiah, the descendants of Tobiah, and the descendants of Nekoda: 652.

2:61 And from among 4  the priests: the descendants of Hobaiah, the descendants of Hakkoz, and the descendants of Barzillai (who had taken a wife from the daughters of Barzillai the Gileadite and was called by that 5  name). 2:62 They 6  searched for their records in the genealogical materials, but did not find them. 7  They were therefore excluded 8  from the priesthood. 2:63 The governor 9  instructed them not to eat any of the sacred food until there was a priest who could consult 10  the Urim and Thummim.
