MOREOVER David and the princes of the tribes set aside for the service of the sons of Asaph, Haman and Jeruthun, the sons of Azram his son.
These are the Levites according to the families of their fathers.
These likewise cast lots over their brethren the sons of Aaron in the presence of David the king and Zadok and Ahimelech and the chiefs of the fathers of the priests and Levites.
The younger and the elder brother were reckoned alike in numbering;
and the number of the workmen according to their service was,
2
Of the sons of Asaph: Zaccuri, Joseph, Nethaniah, and Israel.
And the sons of Asaph whom the king placed under the direction of Jeruthun as singers.
3
Of the sons of Jeruthun: Azariah, Isaiah, Hashabiah, Mattithiah, and Jeruthun, six, under the direction of their father Jeruthun, who sang with harps and gave thanks to the LORD.
4
Of Heman: the sons of Heman, Bukkiah, Mattaniah, Uzziel, Shebuel, and Jerimoth, Hananiah, Hanani, Eliathah, Giddalti, and Romamtiezer, Joshbekashah, Mallothi, Hothir, and Mahazioth.
5
All these were the sons of Heman the king’s seer in the words of God, to lift up the horn.
And God gave to Heman fourteen sons and three daughters.
6
All these were under the hands of their father for song in the house of the LORD, with cymbals, psalteries, and harps for the service of the house of God, according to the king’s order to Asaph, Jeruthun, and Heman.
7
So the number of them, with their brethren who were instructed in the songs of the LORD, was two hundred and eighty-eight.
8
