1 Chronicles 6:54-55 (NKJV) Now these are their dwelling places throughout their settlements in their territory, for they were given by lot to the sons of Aaron, of the family of the Kohathites: They gave them Hebron in the land of Judah, with its surrounding common-lands.
6:54–81. The places where the Levites settled are described by clans with Kohath again appearing first. (See the chart “Levite Towns Listed in Joshua 21 and 1 Chronicles 6.”) Some of the towns were for Kohathites who were priests (vv. 57–60) and others were for Kohathites in nonpriestly roles (vv. 61, 64–70). One of the towns in Benjamin was Anathoth (v. 60). The Prophet Jeremiah was a son of a priest from Anathoth and hence must have been a Kohathite (Jer. 1:1).
The Gershonites settled in 13 towns in Issachar, Asher, Naphtali, and eastern Manasseh (1 Chron. 6:62). These towns are named in verses 71–76 and include the important city Kedesh of Naphtali (v. 76), as well as a Kedesh in the Issachar tribe (v. 72).
To the Merarites fell cities in Zebulun … Reuben, and Gad (vv. 77–81). In all, 48 cities were designed for the use of Levi (cf. Josh. 21:41) since that tribe had been assigned no tribal allotment (cf. Num. 35:1–8).
