2 Chronicles 35:4
_ _ prepare yourselves by the houses of your fathers, after your courses Each course or division was to be composed of those who belonged to the same fathers’ house.
_ _ according to the writing of David and ... Solomon Their injunctions are recorded (2 Chronicles 8:14; 1 Chronicles 23:1-26:32).
- the houses:
1 Chronicles 9:10-34 And of the priests; Jedaiah, and Jehoiarib, and Jachin, ... These chief fathers of the Levites [were] chief throughout their generations; these dwelt at Jerusalem.
Nehemiah 11:10-20 Of the priests: Jedaiah the son of Joiarib, Jachin. ... And the residue of Israel, of the priests, [and] the Levites, [were] in all the cities of Judah, every one in his inheritance.
- after your courses:
- The regulations formed by David, and established by Solomon, concerning the courses of the priests and Levites, were committed to writing, and preserved, for them to refer to continually. Josiah, as well as Hezekiah, required the priests and Levites to attend to their several duties, and encouraged them therein, but he neither added, altered, not retrenched anything. He merely enforced what had been established in the law, and in the regulations made by David and the contemporary prophets: "the commandment of the king....was by the word of the Lord."
1 Chronicles 23:1-26:32 So when David was old and full of days, he made Solomon his son king over Israel. ... And his brethren, men of valour, [were] two thousand and seven hundred chief fathers, whom king David made rulers over the Reubenites, the Gadites, and the half tribe of Manasseh, for every matter pertaining to God, and affairs of the king.
- and according:
2 Chronicles 8:14 And he appointed, according to the order of David his father, the courses of the priests to their service, and the Levites to their charges, to praise and minister before the priests, as the duty of every day required: the porters also by their courses at every gate: for so had David the man of God commanded.
