CHAPTER 25.
1Moreover David and the chief officers of the army separated for the ministry the sons of Asaph, and of Heman, and of Idithun: to prophesy with harps, and with psalteries, and with cymbals according to their number serving in their appointed office.
2Of the sons of Asaph: Zacchur, and Joseph, and Nathania, and Asarela, sons of Asaph; under the hand of Asaph prophesying near the king.
3And of Idithun: the sons of Idithun, Godolias, Seri, Jeseias, and Hasabias, and Mathathias, six, under the hand of their father Idithun, who prophesied with a harp to give thanks and to praise the Lord.
4Of Heman also: the sons of Heman, Bocciau, Mathaniau, Oziel, Subuel, and Jerimoth, Hananias, Hanani, Eliatha, Geddelthi, and Romemthiezer, and Jesbacassa, Mellothi, Othir, Mahazioth.
5All these were the sons of Heman the seer of the king, in the words of God, to lift up the horn. And God gave to Heman fourteen sons and three daughters.
6All these under their father's hand were distributed to sing in the temple of the Lord, with cymbals, and psalteries, and harps, for the service of the house of the Lord, near the king: to wit, Asaph, and Idithun, and Heman.
