The Levitical Musicians

1Moreover, David and the commanders of the army set apart for the service certain of the sons of Asaph, and of Heman and of Jeduthun, who were to prophesy accompanied by harps, by stringed instruments and by cymbals. And the number of the men who did the work for their service was:
 

2of the sons of Asaph, Zaccur and Joseph and Nethaniah and Asharelah, the sons of Asaph under the hand of Asaph who prophesied under the authority of the king.
  3Of Jeduthun, the sons of Jeduthun: Gedaliah, and Zeri, and Jeshaiah, Hashabiah and Mattithiah, six, under the authority of their father Jeduthun who prophesied accompanied by the harp to give thanks and praise to Yahweh.
  4Of Heman, the sons of Heman: Bukkiah, Mattaniah, Uzziel, Shebuel and Jerimoth, Hananiah, Hanani, Eliathah, Giddalti, and Romamti–Ezer, Joshbekashah, Mallothi, Hothir, and Mahazioth.
  5All these were the sons of Heman the king’s seer, according to the words of God to lift up a horn. God gave to Heman 14 sons and three daughters.
 

6All these were under the authority of their father for the music in the house of Yahweh, with cymbals, stringed instruments and harps for the service of the house of God. Asaph, Jeduthun, and Heman were under the authority of the king.
  7The number of them, with their brothers who were instructed in the music for Yahweh, even all who were skillful, was 288.
  8They cast lots for their term of duty, the small just as well as the great, the teacher as well as the student.
