Nethinim

Nethinim (nĕth'i-nim), given, dedicated. The name of the Hebrew temple servants, under the Levites. The whole of the Nethinim do not appear to have been, in their origin, Gibeonites, as it is not improbable that other foreigners were occasionally added to the staff. Joshua 9:3-27; Ezra 8:20. The employment of the Nethinim, though the lowest in the service of the sanctuary, was not regarded as degrading, but rather as a sort of honorable servitude. 1 Chronicles 9:2; Ezra 2:43-58; Ezra 2:70; Nehemiah 3:31; Nehemiah 7:46-60; Nehemiah 7:73; Nehemiah 11:8; Nehemiah 11:21..
