Nehemiah 11:2 "And the People blessed all the men, that willingly offered themselves to dwell at Jerusalem."
Nehemiah 11:3 "Now these are the chief of the province that dwell in Jerusalem: but in the cities of Judah dwelt every one in his possession in their cities, to wit, Israel, the priests, the Levites, and the Nethinims, and the children of Solomon's servants."
Nehemiah 11:4 "And at Jerusalem dwelt certain of the children of Judah, and of the children of Benjamin, of the children of Judah; Athaiah the son of Uzziah, the son of Zechariah, the son of Amariah, the son of Shephatiah, the son of Mahalallel, of the children of Perez;"

Nehemiah 11:6 "All the sons of Perez that dwelt at Jerusalem were four hundred threescore and eight valiant men."
Nehemiah 12:7 "And these are the sons of Benjamin; Sallu the son of Meshullam, the son of Joed, the son of Pedaiah, the son of Kolaiah, the son of Maaseiah, the son of Ithiel, the son of Jesaiah."
Nehemiah 11:8 "And after him Gabbai, Sallai, nine hundred twenty and eight."
Nehemiah 11:9 "And Joel the son of Zichri was their over-seer: and Judah the son of Senuah was second over the city."
Nehemiah 11:10 "Of the priests: Jedaiah the son of Joiarib, Jechin."
Nehemiah 11:11 "Seraiah the son of Hilkiah, the son of Meshullam, the son of Zadok, the son of Meraioth, the son of Ahitub, was the ruler of the house of God."
Nehemiah 11:12 "And their brethren that did the work of the house were eight hundred twenty and two: and Adalah the son of Jeroham, the son of Pelaliah, the son of Amzi, the son of Zechariah, the son of Pashur, the son of Malchiah,"

Nehemiah 11:16 "And Shabbethai and Jozabad, of the chief of the Levites, had the oversight of the outward business of the house of God."
Nehemiah 11:17 "And Mattaniah the son of Micha, the son of Zabdi, the son of Asaph, was the principal to begin the thanksgiving in prayer: and Bakbukiah the second among his brethren, and Abda the son of Shammua, the son of Galal, the son of Jeduthun."

Nehemiah 11:21 "But the Nethinims dwelt in Ophel: and Ziha and Gispa were over the Nethinims."
Don't pass over this verse lightly, for these Nethinims have no business in the house of God, or the tower where the Levite priests dwell, however at this time they are in total control of the tower of Ophel, the holy dwelling place of the Levitical priests. We discussed several times prior how the Law of Moses, given by God, forbids these Kenite Nethinim to act in any of the liturgical duties, and now we know they have become the scribes [I Chronicles 2:55], as well as priestly duties. We will discuss this later.
Nehemiah 11:22 "The overseer also of the Levites at Jerusalem was Uzzi the son of Bani, the son of Hashabiah, the son of Mattaniah, the son of Micha. Of the sons of Asaph, the singers were over the business of the house of God."
