1 Chronicles 25

The Levitical Musicians

1 David and the officers of the army also set apart some of the sons of
Asaph: A musician appointed by David to oversee the music used in worship at the Temple; 12 psalms are attributed to Asaph.
Asaph, Heman b and Jeduthun, who were to prophesy c accompanied by lyres, harps, and cymbals. d This is the list of the men who performed their service:

2 From Asaph’s sons:
Zaccur, Joseph, Nethaniah, and Asarelah, sons of Asaph, under Asaph’s authority, who prophesied under the authority of the king.
3 From Jeduthun: e Jeduthun’s sons:
Gedaliah, Zeri, Jeshaiah, Shimei,
One Hb ms, LXX; other Hb mss omit Shimei
Hashabiah, and Mattithiah – six – under the authority of their father Jeduthun, prophesying to the accompaniment of lyres, giving thanks and praise to the Lord.
4 From Heman: Heman’s sons:
Bukkiah, Mattaniah, Uzziel, Shebuel, Jerimoth, Hananiah, Hanani, Eliathah, Giddalti, Romamti-ezer, Joshbekashah, Mallothi, Hothir, and Mahazioth.
5 All these sons of Heman, the king’s seer g were given by the promises of God to exalt him
Or Him; lit by the words of God to lift a horn
for God had given Heman fourteen sons and three daughters.

6 All these men were under their own fathers’ authority for the music in the Lord’s temple, with cymbals, harps, and lyres for the service of God’s temple. Asaph, Jeduthun, and Heman were under the king’s authority. 7They numbered 288 together with their relatives who were all trained and skillful in music for the Lord. 8They cast lots for their duties, young and old alike, teacher as well as pupil. i
