1 Chronicles 25CHAPTER XXV The number and offices of the singers and players on musical instruments; and their division by lot into twenty-four courses, 1-31. NOTES ON CHAP. XXV Verse 1. David and the captains of the host] The chiefs of those who formed the several orders: not military captains. Should prophesy] Should accompany their musical instruments with prayer and singing. Verse 2. Which prophesied] Sung hymns and prayed. But the Targum understands this of prophesying in the proper sense of the term; and therefore says, "Who prophesied by the Holy Spirit." Jarchi is of the same opinion and quotes the case of Elisha, 2Ki 3:15; While the minstrel played, the hand of the Lord [i.e., the spirit of prophecy] was upon him. Verse 3. The sons of Jeduthun-six] That is, six with their father, otherwise, there are but five. Hence it is said, they were under the hands of their father Jeduthun, who prophesied with a harp, &c. Verse 5. To lift up the horn] "The horn of prophecy," says Jarchi; "to sound with the trumpet in the words of prophecy before the Lord."-T. Three daughters.] These also were employed among the singers. Verse 7. Two hundred fourscore and eight.] That it twelve classes of twenty-four Levites each; for two hundred and eighty-eight divided by twelve quotes twenty-four. Verse 9. For Asaph to Joseph] His first-born. The second to Gedaliah] The first-born of Jeduthun. Verse 10. The third to Zaccur] The first-born of Asaph. Verse 11. The fourth to Izri] The second son of Jeduthun. Verse 12. The fifth to Nethaniah] The third son of Asaph. Thus we find the lot did not run in any particular kind of order. Verse 14. Jesharelah] Supposed to be the same with Uzziel, son of Heman. Verse 31. Romamti-ezer] Both these names belong to the same person. He is mentioned also 1Ch 25:4. With this immense parade of noise and show, (David's own invention,) Christianity has nothing to do.
