1 Chronicles 27:23-25 GOD’S WORD Translation (GW)

23 David didn’t count those under 20 years old, because the Lord had promised that the people of Israel would be as numerous as the stars in the sky. 24 Joab, son of Zeruiah, started to count them but didn’t finish. God was angry with Israel because of this, and the report from it was never included in the official records of King David.

25 These were all the commanders in charge of King David’s property:[a]

for the royal treasuries
    Azmaveth, son of Adiel
for the goods in the fields, cities, villages, and watchtowers
    Jonathan, son of Uzziah


  1. 1 Chronicles 27:25 The last part of verse 32 has been moved to the beginning of verse 25 to express the complex Hebrew paragraph structure more clearly in English.
