Oct 09: 1Chr 26 | Eze 35 | Philippians 3-4
Reading 1 - 1Ch 26
David organized the officers of the Levites as gatekeepers (1Ch 26:1-19), treasury guards (1Ch 26:20-28), and leaders in external affairs (1Ch 26:29-32). The gatekeepers were the temple guards (cf 1Ch 26:7,8). David even specified the number of guards at each temple gate (1Ch 26:17,18). There were 24 guard stations manned 24 hours a day. In view of the wealth in and about the temple, security needed to be tight (cf 1Ch 26:27,28).
