Lists of Returned Exiles

Nehemiah 7

5 Then my God put it into my heart to gather the nobles, the rulers, and the people, that they might be registered by genealogy. And I found a register of the genealogy of those who had come up in the first return, and found written in it:

6 f These 1 are the people of the province who came back from the captivity, of those who had been carried away, whom Nebuchadnezzar the king of Babylon had carried away, and who returned to Jerusalem and Judah, everyone to his city.

7 Those who came with g Zerubbabel were Jeshua, Nehemiah, 2 Azariah, Raamiah, Nahamani, Mordecai, Bilshan, 3 Mispereth, Bigvai, Nehum, and Baanah.

61 And these were the ones who came up from Tel Melah, Tel Harsha, Cherub, 18 Addon, and Immer, but they could not identify their father's house nor their lineage, whether they were of Israel: 62 the sons of Delaiah, the sons of Tobiah, the sons of Nekoda, six hundred and forty-two; 63 and of the priests: the sons of Habaiah, the sons of 19 Koz, the sons of Barzillai, who took a wife of the daughters of Barzillai the Gileadite, and was called by their name. 64 These sought their listing among those who were registered by genealogy, but it was not found; therefore they were excluded from the priesthood as defiled. 65 And the 20 governor said to them that they should not eat of the most holy things till a priest could consult with the Urim and Thummim.
