1 Chronicles 9:10-13 [ESV] Of the priests: Jedaiah, Jehoiarib, Jachin, 11 and Azariah the son of Hilkiah, son of Meshullam, son of Zadok, son of Meraioth, son of Ahitub, the chief officer of the house of God; 12 and Adaiah the son of Jeroham, son of Pashhur, son of Malchijah, and Maasai the son of Adiel, son of Jahzerah, son of Meshullam, son of Meshillemith, son of Immer; 13 besides their kinsmen, heads of their fathers’ houses, 1,760, mighty men for the work of the service of the house of God.
We see all the names and we get ready to skip the chapter. What can there be there for me?
“…1,760, mighty men for the work of the service of the house of God.”
that was enough to give me pause!
Oh to be thought of as one of them. “mighty men for the work of the service of the house of God.”
By your grace and mercy, may I be counted as one of them.
A mighty man, dedicated to works of service, for the house of God.
