Bible: Ezra 2:61-63

2:61 And from among 1  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 2  name). 2:62 They 3  searched for their records in the genealogical materials, but did not find them. 4  They were therefore excluded 5  from the priesthood. 2:63 The governor 6  instructed them not to eat any of the sacred food until there was a priest who could consult 7  the Urim and Thummim.
