Then I separated twelve of the chief of the priests, Sherebiah, Hashabiah, and ten of their brethren with them,
And weighed unto them the silver, and the gold, and the vessels, even
the offering of the house of our God, which the king, and his counsellers, and his lords, and all Israel there
present, had offered:
I even weighed unto their hand six hundred and fifty talents of silver, and silver vessels an hundred talents, and
of gold an hundred talents;
Also twenty basons of gold, of a thousand drams; and two vessels of fine copper, precious as gold.
And I said unto them, Ye are
holy unto the LORD; the vessels are
holy also; and the silver and the gold are
a freewill offering unto the LORD God of your fathers.
Watch ye, and keep them
, until ye weigh them
before the chief of the priests and the Levites, and chief of the fathers of Israel, at Jerusalem, in the chambers of the house of the LORD.
