The Musicians

1Moreover David and the captains of the army separated for the service some of the sons of Asaph, and of Heman, and of Jeduthun, who should prophesy with harps, with lyres, and with cymbals: and the number of the workmen according to their service was:

2Of the sons of Asaph; Zaccur, and Joseph, and Nethaniah, and Asharelah, the sons of Asaph under the direction of Asaph, who prophesied according to the order of the king.

3Of Jeduthun: the sons of Jeduthun; Gedaliah, and Zeri, and Jeshaiah, Shemei, Hashabiah, and Mattithiah, six, under the hands of their father Jeduthun, who prophesied with a harp, to give thanks and to praise the LORD.

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 in the words of God, to exalt the horn. And God gave to Heman fourteen sons and three daughters.

6All these were under the direction of their father in the music in the house of the LORD, with cymbals, lyres, and harps, for the service of the house of God, according to the king's order to Asaph, Jeduthun, and Heman.

7So the number of them, with their brethren that were instructed in the songs of the LORD, even all that were skillful, was two hundred fourscore and eight.

8And they cast lots for their duties, the small as well as the great, the teacher as well as the student.

9Now the first lot came forth for Asaph to Joseph: the second to Gedaliah, who with his brethren and sons were twelve:

10The third to Zaccur, his sons, and his brethren, twelve:

11The fourth to Izri, his sons, and his brethren, twelve:

12The fifth to Nethaniah, his sons, and his brethren, twelve:

13The sixth to Bukkiah, his sons, and his brethren, twelve:

14The seventh to Jesharelah, his sons, and his brethren, twelve:

15The eighth to Jeshaiah, his sons, and his brethren, twelve:

16The ninth to Mattaniah, his sons, and his brethren, twelve:

17The tenth to Shimei, his sons, and his brethren, twelve:

18The eleventh to Azarel, his sons, and his brethren, twelve:

19The twelfth to Hashabiah, his sons, and his brethren, twelve:

20The thirteenth to Shubael, his sons, and his brethren, twelve:

21The fourteenth to Mattithiah, his sons, and his brethren, twelve:
