Jeduthun

Jeduthun [N] [H] [S]

lauder; praising, a Levite of the family of Merari, and one of the three masters of music appointed by David ( 1 Chronicles 16:41 1 Chronicles 16:42 ; 25:1-6 ). He is called in 2 Chronicles 35:15 "the king's seer." His descendants are mentioned as singers and players on instruments ( Nehemiah 11:17 ). He was probably the same as Ethan ( 1 Chronicles 15:17 1 Chronicles 15:19 ). In the superscriptions to Psalms 3962 ,62, and 77, the words "upon Jeduthun" probably denote a musical instrument; or they may denote the style or tune invented or introduced by Jeduthun, or that the psalm was to be sung by his choir.
